Living Cheaper vs. Living Green

I've mentioned my idea for this blog to many people and it seems that many people have showed a general interest. Unfortunately, the bulk of those that show an interest have made the assumption that I am trying to create a how to site featuring sustainable and greener living. Though it would seem that these ideas do overlap at times, they are completely different lifestyles.

Living cheaper is exactly what it sounds like. The basis behind this page is to share my discoveries of finding cheaper alternatives to live without feeling like you're missing out on an enjoyable life. I'm not trying to create a page based on survival methods.

Living Green focuses on being environmentally friendly. Many times living greener can be more expensive than "normal" living. Take a stroll through Whole Foods and you will understand what I mean. Living green overlaps with living cheaper when it comes to re-purposing items or making your own cleaning supplies from natural ingredients. I'm all about re-purposing items, recycling and I love the idea of making my own supplies but I don't believe it should cost an arm and a leg to reduce the footprint you leave on the planet.
