    i'd like to keep learning about sharing economies, but for now, i reached back out to the Repair Cafe contact i had to see if the one i heard was in planning mode for this Fall is still in the works...

    ok, i just set my computer to go to sleep more often--we'll see how that goes.. i turn my computer off overnight. i unplug it as much as i can remember to. i turn off the printer when not in use, too.

      setting laptop to go to sleep more often did not work as i had to keep unsleeping it... so that setting is back to how it was. :(

    today i decided to return a casserole dish that was too big. when i got to the store, i found out they didn't take returns, so i was just going to donate it, but they said i could exchange, so i found some jars i need for food storage, but i did NOT browse for anything else, which i would have done in the past. i'm really working on needs vs. wants. i have a lot of wants!

      Nice job, Katy! You're inspiring me because I have a pair of pants that I bought that I am debating whether to return or not, and I'm thinking now I should!
