{31 Days} Back to Basics Day 22

This month I am participating
in the nester’s {31 Days} challenge.  My topic for the month is Back to
Basics.  If you would like to follow along 
youcan find all of my posts here.
I have talked about a lot of changes when it comes to
getting “back to basics;” in our home, with our food, the way we clean.  I am sure you have been thinking to yourself,
“man that must take an awful lot of time!” 
And I am here to let you know that it does take time. 
When we first started making all of these changes, we were a
family of two.  And let me tell you, when
it was just the two of us, it was a heck of a lot easier.  But, then we added in some littles to the mix,
and it got a lot more complicated.
I think that after a while you get used to the amount of
time you are doing certain things.  I do
a lot of laundry because I have two kids and a husband that seems to go through
an awful lot of clothes; a couple more loads of rags and towels does not seem
to add too much time, but then again, I am used to it at this point.
If you are just getting started, I would definitely
recommend making baby steps.  If you try
to do it all at once, you will be completely overwhelmed and will stop
everything.  The first change was making
my own laundry soap, relatively easy change to make considering I only had to
make laundry soap once every couple of months. 
The second change was replacing one meal each week with all local
ingredients, and that was only during the summer.  As you move through these changes they will
get easier and easier, and adding one more thing will not seem like that big of
a deal.
There will always be seasons where these changes will be
more difficult, and that is why you should make one small change at a time.

What one change would
you like to make?
