Not The Same Ole

Posted: March 9, 2011 by emphelan in Uncategorized

Groan, right? I know what you are thinking, another recycling blog in a sea of green.

It just isn’t that simple. Our projects will not be merely about refurbishing that dumpster dive find, or bedazzeling that purse. We actually weld, hammer, sew and cut. Yes, sometimes we get the men in our lives involved. We live frugally this way.

This isn’t just a mission to see what we can do. We already know. We have been living this way for years before bringing it to this blog. Some of us out of necessity, because of being laid off and having to learn to live with less money. Some of us are indeed trying to live a more earth friendly life. And some of us are just up to the challenge.

Our lives are different ranging from the middle of no where homesteads, to city apartments and the suburbs in between. We range in income as well. There should be something for everyone no matter where you are yourself in life.

We will let you in on our little secrets of where to find the bargains, or snag the free stuff. We will also teach you how to get rid of the trash in your life.

Some of our projects aren’t pretty but are functional. Some are pretty and have little function. Sometimes girls just need a little of that.

And we welcome your input, your pictures, your comments and suggestions. If you have a project you are super proud of, let us know about it. Join our flickr group for inspiration, or read us on your facebook page.

Let the trash fly.

    Oooh, this looks like it is right up my alley. I like the ideas in the flickr group so far.
