I think these are wonderful tips to help reduce household expenses. I have wondered two things for a while about some of these cost saving and eco-friendly options:
1. Have the reported savings factored in the cost in using the alternative presented (i.e. laundering re-usable cloths, cost of low flow nozzles, etc)
2. As eco-friendly goes, are the consumed resources involved in cleaning (making ready for use) re-usable items like lunchboxes, less than the resources consumed with the traditional alternative?
Just a couple of thoughts.
