Happy Thursday, Ramblers! It has been a hot minute since I’ve done a blog on minimalism and decluttering, so I figured I would blog about that this week! If you’ve read my previous minimalism blogs, then you already know that I have been spending a lot of my summer decluttering and donating or trading my unwanted items. I have also used up a lot of items and I’m not planning on replacing them. Since I haven’t told you guys exactly what I decluttered yet, I figured this week would be as good as any to share that list. Now, I know there are a lot of similar blog posts out there, but since everybody is different, I figured at least some of the things I post might be different. Guess you’ll just have to read on to find out!

Howdy Ramblers! Welcome back to another sustainability blog post! This one is going to be especially useful for all my coffee drinkers because it is all about coffee grounds. USED coffee grounds to be precise. Now you’re probably wondering why can’t you just throw away your coffee grounds? Don’t they just decompose anyways? Well, yes, technically you’re right. Coffee grounds will decompose naturally over time, but it does that much better and quicker when it’s in the right environment. When you throw your coffee grounds into a trash bag, the grounds won’t be able to decompose as they should since the plastic and all the other stuff surrounding them blocks the necessary compounds and microorganisms that are necessary for the decomposition process from reaching the coffee grounds. So, being a coffee lover myself, and thus having a ton of used coffee grounds that I don’t want to just throw away, I rolled up my sleeves and did some research (aka asked Google).

Howdy Ramblers! Sorry for not blogging last week! I do have a pretty good excuse though: my parents and grandma were in town, and since I don’t get to see them very often, I wanted to spend as much time as possible with them. To make up for it, though, I have created a fun little dichotomous key that will help you choose the perfect plant for you (in my not-so-humble opinion).

Howdy Ramblers! I hope you all are having a good week! On my side, I am writing this blog post at 12:30 am Wednesday night (or Thursday morning) and, to be honest, until a couple of hours ago, I was pretty uninspired as to what I could possibly write about. And then it hit me, why not write about how uninspired I was to get out of bed and do anything today. But then, also write about how I still somehow managed to turn my day around and turn it into a productive reset day. In other words, how I went from being a couch/bed potato to a productive, inspired potato.
