Check out these challenges

If you're still pondering what resolutions to make in this new year, some Boothers past and present have some great challenges going on:

Kellie (the Greenhabilitator) has signed on for a six month "compact" and is challenging you to join too.

Rebecca (Envirambo) and Robbie (Going Green Mama) are co-sponsoring a "clean out the cupboards" challenge along with several other bloggers. The idea is to eat only foods that are already in their pantry during January.

Have you seen any other good challenges lately?

I am hosting a contest over at Green Gracious entitled Treasure Hunt 2011! I am challenging myself to buy little or nothing new for home or wardrobe in 2011 and inviting everyone to join me. Here's the link: http://greengracious.blogspot.com/2010/12/contest-announcement-treasure-hunt-2011.html

I don't use many paper towels or napkins but, inspired by this blog, I plan to cut back even more this year. I bought some large cloth napkins that I plan to keep in pile in the kitchen and use for everything.

Instead of eating what I already have (tho I'll do some of that as well, gotta buy veggies), my use what I have challenge is craft supplies. Use what I've got this month and next.

I have never owned a dryer my whole adult life. As a young adult I went to the laundry mat, but I stopped using dryers along the way, and never bought one when I finally got my own washing machine. That's 30 years of drying on racks and clothes lines exclusively. Dh too before we met even. IF anyone wants to challenge themselves try not using a dryer. (I have to admit that I've never had babies, but teens yes, and sometimes school agers for up to a month at a time.)

Thanks for reminding us to have environmental resolutions. I gotta think of some more.

Aside from my regular resolutions (mostly healthy living and exercise related), I've got one challenge I'm participating in.

The challenge is to write and send 52 snail mail letters in a year (or packages). Maybe not the greenest since it will use a bit of paper and gas to send those letters, but it's such a great feeling to receive an unexpected letter or package!
