5 Ideas for living lightly

 

  1. Skip the fast-food line. And skip out on clogged arteries! Cooking at home is way cheaper than eating out, just watch what you buy. Rice, Potatoes, Yams, frozen peas and corn are all cheap and filling items, buy some cheaper cuts of meat and you’re golden!

 

 

  1. Don’t Buy new Clothes. You know you could rock any item in a thrift shop, so why constantly buy new expensive clothing? It feels good at first, but I betcha that thrift shop sweater you’ve held on to for 8 years ranks a bit higher, and lighter on your wallet.

 

  1. Get into Couponing. Nothing is more exhilarating than saving money through discounts. You feel like you are part of a secret club, and could save on stuff you may already be purchasing. If you have the time, find weekly flyers and match them with any coupons to get maximum savings.

 

  1. Limit Monthly Services. Cell phones are expensive and internet aint cheap. But if you can limit yourself to the bare minimum, cutting out cable, home phone and going for a basic cell plan, this will keep the monthly expensive way down. Note if you have any other subscription based services you pay for, and assess if it’s really worth it.

 

  1. Value the non-monetary. What’s the price of the feeling of sunshine peeking through the early morning canopy, or the deep breath of  fresh air you take? The time you spend with friends and family is invaluable.

Geo-Caching, What’s that?

Its called “The real-world treasure hunt” on the Geo-caching  official website:Treasure_Map

Strategically placed treasures called “Caches” are hidden, and then found using GPS
Coordinates and fun Hints.

They are usually in parks/natural areas but they are everywhere, with almost 3 million caches hidden world-wide!

It’s Free! All you have to do is go to the website: https://www.geocaching.com to see if any hidden treasures are nearby you!downloadI love the way Geo-caching changes the way you see your everyday environment. You could walk by the same tree  everyday, and have no clue of the deep treasures it holds. It also helps me get out and about, cause who doesn’t like an awesome treasure hunt adventure?
