Good low spending month was the comment I was going to have here, then I remembered to add the yarn purchase, opps not such a low spend.
I'm not sure if this is brave or stupid, below is the monthly totals for the last few years.
Each year I was improving, until I finished work, more time for crafting at more cost, but I do get huge enjoyment from my crafts, and soon I should have an income form the bags I am making.
I have added a tab at the top of my blog 'Made for selling', plus I have had some local interest.
Our plastic waste is still dropping, both hubby and I are always looking for a green solution, hubby has stopped buying bread and he is again making our own, another plastic wrapper stopped entering our home. We purchased some stretch plastic lids to replace stretch and seal, these are working so well, I'm looking to get more, they are plastic, but are reusable. It's little steps but they are working for us, I have a couple more improvements, but I add them bit at a time, poor hubby gives me some strange looks every now and then.
Our water saving is OK, we are not big on this, but we have sorted more water storage in the garden, the hope is to eliminate the use of mains water for the garden. I have changes planned for my greenhouse, which will embrace low water use.
