Hillbilly Compost Bin

It's been awhile since I've updated y'all on our Master bath situation.  Well, there's a reason for that.... because it's still the same!  If you missed my post on the beginning of the Master bath saga you can catch up HERE.  Thankfully, we've had no company since we're still showering in the guest bath!  I guess I need to start coming up with some sort of plan to get that room finished.  It needs so much more done to it than just replacing the tub that I know my champagne taste on a beer budget is going to put a damper on getting it done because it's just not in the budget right now.  I think I just came up with a plan (I love a good plan!)...  I'm going to determine what all needs to be done in there and prioritize them.  Then, we'll do one thing at a time, as we can afford it, and some day it will be done!  I'll keep you posted!

Meanwhile, Country Boy decided to put the old tub to good use...

Our hillbilly compost bin!  It's working pretty good!  It's about half full now with lot's of good dirt in there!


We're having a lovely day of rain!

I had planned to do laundry today but it's not a good day for hanging the clothes out on the line.  There's always tomorrow!

Speaking of hanging the clothes out.... I have heard that by doing so, you can cut your electric bill in half!  I'm not sure how accurate that statement is but I have to tell you that our electric bill is considerably less than it was this time last year and the only thing that has changed is using the dryer less (I still dry my towels!  I like them soft!)!  That makes me a happy girl!  And, I actually enjoy the process of hanging the clothes on the line... there's something calming about it and I feel good about conserving energy!

Till next time,

Haha! I like the hillybilly composter :)

My mom hangs ALL her clothes out and she says it saves her loads of $$.

(I agree, I like my towels soft!)
