Welcome to the weekly Wednesday Be Clean Be Green With Kids Link Up to share and garner ideas about simple ways to make family life a little easier, eco-conscious and sustainable. The ideas we share don’t have to be rocket science, so let’s help out another mom (or parent!) discover just the right idea to find a conscious cadence in everyday life.
On the blog this week…
12 Ideas to Learn About and Love Where You Live
Moving to a new town can definitely be challenging. For us, we had family and familiarity to fall back on, but routines are still shaken up and many things have to be “revamped” (new doctors and dentists, new grocery store aisles, not knowing back roads… ugh!). Check out these 12 ideas we’ve tried or are working on to get situated in our new area after moving half way across the country several months ago.
Creating Boundaries Between Work and Family
With ever better technology, work and life seem to be increasingly intertwined (at least for me). I really like this for a lot of reasons. But if I’m not careful, they can creep into each others’ space too much and wreak havoc. As a guest post on Your Formula For Life, I shared three ideas I use for creating boundaries between work and family in an effort to help ensure they each receive their due attention. (Spoiler Alert: I’m far from perfect.)
Now Share Your Family-Friendly Sustainable Living Ideas!
Let’s make it easier to learn how other families are finding creative ways to live cleaner and greener lives! Every Wednesday, stop by to share ideas about how your family is being clean and green. (You can also check the archives for ideas from previous weeks.)
There’s no need to be a blogger to participate. You can link up Instagram posts! Of course, you can always stop by just to see what everyone else is sharing. Be sure to Pin your favorite suggestions so you can find them later.
If you have a whole food recipe, a non-toxic DIY project, an upcycling or waste reduction trick or tip, or just an idea to help make family life a little simpler, share it below. The sky is the limit. Feel free to link up as many posts as you’d like!
There are no requirements about pinning or following or sharing in order to participate. Those kind of drive me crazy. But if you’re up for it, I’d certainly love for you to follow along with Honestly Modern on Instagram or YouTube or sign up for the bi-weekly email newsletter (which features a bunch of content that doesn’t make it to the blog).
Looking forward to seeing what’s working for your family!
