One of the best ways to save money and, yes, live green is to not be “stuck in your ways,” so to speak. Don’t be afraid to go into that little outlet store to look for organic groceries, or try that new type of food you think sounds bizarre. If it’s cheaper and healthier to make some of your own foods from scratch at home, then do it. If there is a chance that you could change your life drastically with something that makes you cringe just thinking about, what not give it a try?
You can’t be loyal to a store, brand or way of thinking if you really want to change your life. It will be easier to go green, try new things, make your own natural cleaners and save money if you aren’t loyal to the particular habits of most consumers.
What are some of the unique things you do that changed your life to live more green while saving money?
