  1. Good tips, Clara! I recycle paper, well sort of, by taking printouts that I no longer need and printing on the reverse side. I work out of a home office, too, so I can hang my laundry out to dry when the weather is nice. Does that count? 🙂


  2. There’s absolutely nothing like the smell of fresh laundry soaking up a summer sun & breeze! You pass Karen:)
