Whenever people say that you can't be environmentally conscious if you don't have loads of spare time, it isn't totally true but it sure as hell does make things easier. I've been running ragged the past few weeks adjusting to my fall semester work schedule and haven't had the time to accomplish all that I'd like, and October Unprocessed sneaked up on me. Luckily the processed food habit was one that I broke early on so I haven't had too many missteps. If single-serving yogurts and purchased granola count, I'm totally falling off but those are seriously ingrained into my work diet :P And instant coffee.

I think that I need to go back to daily journaling of my trash and diet. My plastic trash also seems like it's gone up lately but it's hard to tell what's mine and what's from other people in the house.

Lol, it's "October everything" month XD
There are two Dutch (nationwide, organized online) projects I'm joining:
"Buy nothing new month" (except for food and medicines) and a declutter-challenge where you get a mail every day with a topic to declutter (for example: your car, winter coats/shawls/etc, bathroom stuff).

Lol, the first entry on the 365 Less Things blog says it's Buy Nothing New Month in November XD

I'll add it to my RSS, thank you for the link!

The decluttering emails I get are in Dutch, but it was
day 1: inside of your car
day 2: outdoor winter clothing (coats, shawls, mittens, etc)
day 3: bottles etc in the bathroom
day 4: kitchen supplies you never use

I just got today's email: food that's not edible anymore. Hm, maybe I'll throw away the noodles from 2010 that we tasted but didn't taste great anymore. A few weeks ago we had noodles from 2006 (both from my grandfather's house) that still tasted really good (super delicious Tibetan noodles!). Ah well :P The Tibetan noodles were packaged better, apparently. Almost all of my plastic-packaged noodles are eaten now, only a package of soumen left. Switching to carton boxes :D
