Hello and Welcome to Sustainable Life Blog!
At Sustainable Life Blog, we are about the long game. We’re not about quick fixes or short cuts. We put in the work, and we get the expected results. We are also about conserving our resources and not wasting anything that we have. We save our money and our time, and spend both in ways that make us happy. All of the resources we save allow us to achieve greater freedom than most people have, and we are constantly seeking ways to increase our freedom by saving money and resources. Here are some of the articles that encompass what we’re about.
My aim with this blog is to teach you how to conserve and save your resources and use those resources to build your freedom.
Are High Efficincy Appliances Worth it? – When you’re shopping for appliances, the up-front cost isnt the only thing that matters. If your appliance uses electricity or water (or both) you’ll need to factor in the cost of the resources your appliance is using as well. If your appliance is inefficient, you could end up paying more over life life of the appliance than the difference in the up-front cost of the more efficient unit.
How to Cut Cable TV – In 2009 when my wife and I got rid of cable, it was not very common. As cable companies keep screwing their customers by slowing speeds and increasing prices, it’s getting more common. I wrote this to talk about all of the tools that we use to watch our favorite shows without cable tv.
Pay off your Nelnet Student Loan – This I wrote for people looking to pay off their nelnet student loan. It goes over what you need to do to send in your final payment online.
Fix your Finances – This is a post I wrote about paying off over $55,000 of debt from when I started this blog in 2009. It talks about things that I did to pay off my debt and how well they worked. If you’re trying to get out of debt and feeling discouraged, keep at it. I know where you’re at right now and I can say that it’s amazing on the other end.
Homemade Baby Wipes – When our daughter was born, we knew we didnt want to go 100% paper diapers because they are rather wasteful. We decided to try and make our own baby wipes, and the process was easy and we’ve enjoyed the result. We’re saving quite a bit of money and wasting a lot less as a result.
