Hey, i like this idea.my story is: I'm using the last rinsing water (clothes) to mop the floor. the water price is very expensive here.
Wonderful reuse of water. If you have a good laundry soap you can also use the wash water. It won't hurt your plants. Make sure it doesn't have bleach or other chemicals that would hurt your plants. One of the "Free" varieties will work just fine.

The day when consummers lose their minds go out at the most obsene times (one store is opening at 4 A.M. how nuts is that) to buy crappy merchandise that they don't need becasue it's ON SALE!
Yes I've done it to but not anymore. I have started participating in the International
The cheerful dead wander around malls, marveling at the blank, comatose expressions on the faces of shoppers. The zombies are happy to be among their own kind, but slightly contemptuous of those who have not yet begun to rot.
Buy Nothing Day around the world

Why am I starting now when winter is just around the corner?
Well now is probable the best time to get outdoor containers cheap. At least I hope! Tomorrow when I'm out shopping I will take a look around to see what is available. I'm also going to hit the library to do some research on vegetable container garden s. I love the library!

How to Enter the crazy green contest: Go to comment and post your CRAZY story. Either about the craziest thing you have ever done to save money or the environment or both. The Day after Thanksgiving I will pick the 5 storys that I think are the CRAZIEST! Then let you vote on the top three! First prize winner of the crazy green contest will get first choice, second gets second choice and third gets the prize that is left.
NOW about the prizes.
Because I think we have made Christmas way to commercial I always make my presents. Cookies and crafts from the heart make better presents then some gift card or expensive knick knack that will probable go into storage. This prize should help spread Christmas cheer without breaking the bank
Ok, this next prize I think is the funniest book I've seen in a while. Hate JUNK mail this prize will have you looking forward to it. NOT only is it a fun new way to recycle Junk mail but it can keep the kids busy while you get those Christmas Cookies made.
The last prize may have you scratching your head on how they fit into a blog on saving money and the environment but I got them on clearance (saving money) and no I won't tell you how much. They are a very nice set of heart shaped hanging votive candle holder. I know these pictures aren't the best but I had to use my phone camera because in the move we seem to have lost the cord to connect our camera to the computer.
Have fun telling your story and don't forget to check back to see the other fun stories have been entered in the crazy green contest. Then come back after Thanksgiving to vote for the winners.
