So often I make a commitment on this blog or ask you to share in new challenges that I thought it only appropriate to do a little "progress check" here and there. In the coming weeks, I'll do update posts on our new year's resolutions and life post-spending hiatus, but I’m starting by revisiting April's Earth Day challenge to do "just one thing", as this was something I was incredibly nervous about actually sticking to.
So I’m especially happy to report that it's six weeks post Earth Day, and I haven’t purchased a single roll of paper towels! I’ve used a few at the office, but otherwise, I am officially paper towel free. I'd be lying if I didn't say it was incredibly hard at first, not just for my family, but for our friends too (we we're constantly reaching out for the spot where the paper towels used to sit…aching for them like some sort of phantom limb.) But after a few weeks (and the purchase of 20 terrycloth dish towels), I hardly miss them.
How about you? How’s it going? Are you sticking to your Earth Day “just one thing”?
