how to be more eco friendly on vacation

I recently returned from a trip to Disney World and it was such a fun time. Just being able to get away from work, regular life, as well as a snowfall at home was very needed. As I have talked about on my blog before I am trying to work on switching out items in…

declutter with me: kitchen

Note: This declutter is specifically dealing with non-food kitchen items and I will be working with the food items next month.
