I didn’t make any resolutions this year, I’m sort of at the stage where I know what’s working, I know what doesn’t and all change last year was incremental.
Two things that I want to do are:
- reducing the stuff I own, I feel that there are things I’m hanging onto that I don’t need or use and those things can be better used by someone else. I also want to be more aware of what I bring into the flat and on to the allotment and have more sustainable and bio degradable options. So less cling film and one use items at home, more work on composting on the allotment and I’d eventually like to get to the stage with the plot where we buy one load of compost and have it delivered, instead of hundreds of bags.
- small improvements to the flat, there are things I never got around to doing that need sorting.
None of this will happen overnight, because sustainable/reusable options are expensive, so this year I’m going to commit to doing/buying at least one thing a month that will improve my life in my home.
This month is was beeswax wraps to replace clingfilm, last month cotton wool pads replacements that are reusuable. At some point it’ll be curtains in the bedroom and sorting out the shelving in the cupboard of doom to make it more user friendly. No major works or purchases, just little changes that make my life a bit better and/or less wasteful.
