Simplify, Simplify, Simplify!

Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify, simplify! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb-nail. - Henry David Thoreau

I agree with the other posters. There is so much crap we can do without.

As for making soap - it is not too hard, and fun. You do need some equipment. The advantage of making soap is that you know what you're putting into it, and you can choose quality ingredients.

I agree that Dial can probably make it much cheaper, but you can make enough soap to last you a year in a couple of afternoons. Not to mention having a nice gift to share with your loved ones. And if you can make soap, you can make shampoo.

Since moving to a primarily (though admittedly, not completely) raw food lifestyle, our food expenses have gone way down.

In truth, if you're eating strictly for nourishment, you really don't need to eat that much. I sprout lentils and fenugreek seeds. I make my own rejuvelac and have a nice big green vege smoothie that powers me up good for the morning.

Wheat is an addictive poison. The more you eat it, the more you want it. Stay away. That will reap health benefits down the road.

Thank you for the topic.

To be mean is never excusable, but there is some merit in knowing that one is; the most irreparable of vices is to do evil out of stupidity. - C.B.
