I would encourage you to take a look at the blogs I follow if you are at all interested in green, sustainable, organic, off-the-grid living... or if thrifting is your thing! There are a couple that I follow just because they are a hoot to read! It's amazing what one can learn just by reading about how others live!
I just found this one.... http://simplicityfirst.wordpress.com/ .... and it's REALLY interesting! Another interesting start to finish off the grid site is: http://www.coyotecottage.com/
Anyway... grab a cup of coffee, sit a spell & find something interesting read!
