Waste not, want stuff

Another first today: I finally learned how to use my cruise control. And I set it to — gasp — the speed limit. Guys, it’s hard to drive 55! (Or, in my case, 65.) But I’m trying to be more waste-conscious, along with all the other broke people I know.

Speaking of waste, I made my first purchase for the house last week, and it just arrived yesterday:

A set of coasters made from recycled wallpaper! If you haven’t been to Etsy yet, go. The sellers are amazing. I can’t even decide which set of homemade damask printed throw pillows to buy, because I have too many choices. Uh, nor can I pick a paint color to match them to. But that’s a problem for another day…
