I am a control freak. Plain and simple. ok maybe it’s not that simple but there it is. *I am also an introvert, which in my experience complicates things even more, since I rely only on myself to help myself-and have a great deal of trouble asking anyone for help. (I can prove I am […]
So I’ve been reading a lot about minimalism, and naturally (for me anyway) I started thinking about myself.

I know many people like their jobs (so I’ve heard), and that many feel they cannot afford to retire , and some –like me-were brought up to believe that the only way to justify your existence on this planet is by being a productive human being=going to work every day rain or sun and “being […]

#1.Greeting cards: Do you remember how we loved drawing as kids ?somewhere along the adulthood road we lost it, what a shame ,it’s such fun!
well i bought 100 craft cards and 50 envelopes- (everything cost me 7 bucks )- and looked in my favorite place for ideas: Pinterest. I love cacti ( plus they are so easy to draw so there u go).Everyone was excited about these cards – and besides cutting on the costs i could make it personal both on the receivers side and on my side.
#2: muesli.another very simple thing to make from scratch is this muesli. After opening a foul box of store-bought muesli i wondered what were the ingredients of a basic muesli and found out u can do just fine with just rolled oats and raisins . But feel free to add nuts; coconut shreds or dried fruit .
#3: your own hamburger buns .maybe even your own bread who knows.a great recipe from one green planet.
