If you have been following me on Instagram for awhile, you know that we have been trying really hard to reduce the amount of waste generated in our household. It’s been a slow process. We tried to go cold turkey, and found that wasn’t realistic for us. After that, adding back in products with wasteful packaging felt defeating, BUT I wasn’t giving us enough credit. It’s all about progress, not perfection and that goes for you, too! You don’t have to be an extreme zero waster to make a few small changes that can have a big impact on your waste generation, so here are some waste reduction tips for people who are NOT zero waste!

I’m head over heels for the black metal bed frame we ordered from Wayfair. Every time I post our bedroom on Instagram, I get tons of questions about it! It goes out of stock all of the time, so I wanted to share my other favorites with you!

That said, I couldn’t live with our disgusting, outdated kitchen. A little, jk a lot, of paint, and some elbow grease have gone a long way on this kitchen. It might not be my dream kitchen, but it feels so much fresher than it did with what we were able to do on a $500 budget!
Are you ready for some serious black & white kitchen renovation inspiration? I have been drooling over these kitchens for years.
This summer, we saw countless houses and all of a sudden we discovered this big, purple (some claim it is grey) Victorian. Andrew made us drive by it before we even met the realtor to see the other houses that day. As soon as we walked inside he looked at me, and we both knew this was the place we would call home. The closing kept getting pushed back, and we were on the seat of our pants for a couple months. Finally, in October… keys!
