A friend pointed out a new (to me) blog called Consciously Frugal that is well-written and interesting. The writer was raised by “socially conscious parents (read hippies) in rural America” and has clean-looking blog. Lots of green/frugal resources, no ads.
In one recent post the writer admits natural cleaners do not work as well as the regular, petroleum-based ones. She starts off:
How many people do you know who are novelty cleaning product junkies? They’re always proclaiming the virtues of the latest bleach pen, toilet disk or disposable cloth, as if germ killing really is akin to godliness. I swear, novelty cleaning product junkies are a subculture. Or a cult. Or maybe just family members.
In another post, she rants against “the idiot box,” her pet name for TVs. I don’t agree with everything she says, but I do like hearing other opinions. If you do too, check out the Consciously Frugal blog.
