One Small Change Challenge for Feburary

One Small Change is hosted by Hip Mountain Mama
It is a monthly challenge thru April 22nd.

For the month of January my 'One Small Change' that I chose was to hang a load of laundry each day.  See post here.  And I am reporting that although I did not accomplish to do this EVERY day, I did manage to EVERY OTHER DAY, except for a three-day stint when our water was turned off during the day from 8am to 5pm each day, so I was forced to play catch-up with my laundry because of someone's pipes freezing in the park!  However, with that being said, I certainly did learn how to gather water and use water sparingly for 3 days straight!  And this spring I will have Mike install a rain barrel so that I'm not stressed about having enough water when it gets turned off for the day...

OK, so, for February's Challenge...I will continue to work on my DAILY laundry hanging challenge from January.  PLUS I will now start using cloth only in the kitchen AND cloth wipes for my twins' diaper changes!  I already use cloth diapers, so you'd think this would be a no-brainer, but it's taken a lot for me to get to the point of using washable wipes...Lots of prayers needed on this one!  I have on and off tried to limit the amount of paper towels used in the kitchen and the amount of commercial diaper wipes by making my own, but will now forgo paper all together!  I will remove what paper I do have in the kitchen and in the diaper basket and use cloth only!
