The Challenge: Live below the line
Today as I was reading about the challenge and telling my 7 year old about todays' challenge, she was very smart and saying that if we "drive" anywhere that is spending money. And we really didn't want to make this hard, because it isn't. People just think they have to "Go" somewhere to have fun or to do something. So we decided to GARDEN! It's something that we have our whole family participate and it creates a sustainable life-style for our family. We only have herbs in our garden right now, but it is so nice outside in Texas today and the girls love to play outside. So, we probably spend about $.50 in water to water the herbs and then we just removed some weeds and raked some leaves and branches that had fallen yesterday because it was windy.
If you have completed the challenge head on over to DoSomething.org and "Report it."
