Grow your Own Herbs and Vegetables and Save Lots of Money!

Today's hot deal has an environmental focus. Recently, I wanted to do more in my household and also help heal this planet. I wanted to reduce household waste and also reduce my Greenhouse gas emissions.

I tried different things in my house and discovered the fun of growing some of my own vegetables and herbs. I realized that if I could grow even a small fraction of the vegetables and herbs that I eat, I could save a lot of money on my grocery bills.

I started small. I found that some of the vegetables that I buy at the supermarket still contain roots that can be replanted. For example, when you buy green onions, spinach, leeks, butter lettuce, alfalfa sprouts, radishes, parsley, or cilantro at the grocery store, you'll find that they will still have roots attached to them. These vegetables are still living plants. So you can simply cut off the root part of these plants and replant them in a pot filled with potting soil.

By replanting the roots of vegetables that I bought from the store, I have accumulated green onions, alfalfa sprouts, and spinach plants growing in planters at home. My next step is to buy some seeds of tomatoes, onions, garlic, and celery and plant them outdoors. Spring has finally arrived and it is finally time to grow some vegetables outdoors.

Some benefits of growing your own vegetables and herbs include:
· Reducing carbon emissions used to transport vegetables that you normally buy at the supermarket
· Saving lots of money by growing part of your own food supply
· Healthier to eat vegetables that you grow yourself (fewer pesticides and chemicals used)
· Growing your own food is a fun and stimulating hobby. And you'll also get some exercise.

Tips on growing your own vegetables:
· Start a compost as a complement to your vegetables. The compost can be used as a rich natural fertilizer for your vegetable and herbs and it will also reduce your household's waste going to landfills. Compost used as fertilizer will also save you lots of money!
· Use as little commercial fertilizer as possible. The production of Nitrogen-based fertilizers contribute to global warming. Again, organic fertilizer from compost is recommended over commercial fertilizer.
· You can grow vegetables all year-round by planting them in small pots indoors (close to a light source). During the spring and summer, you can also plant more vegetables and herbs in your backyard.

Some Tips to Save Money and More

Hey folks. It is almost spring time and tax time. It's time to clean up the house again, file those income taxes and find new ways to save money at the same time. In this vein, here are some of my own ways to save money and make my dollars go further:

1. Use a rewards or cash-back credit card to get back some money for the money that I spend.
2. Brown bag my lunch during the week
3. Deposit any extra money into a high interest savings account. You'd be surprised how compound interest in savings accounts (ranging from 3% to 5% interest) can really add up!
4. Take public transit rather than drive.
5. Turn off any unnecessary appliances and lights.
6. Buy sale-priced items, bulk items, and use coupons when shopping for groceries.
7. Subscribe to internet, cable tv, and phone services through the same company and take advantage of bundled discounts.
8. Split the cost of coffee with your co-workers rather than buy a fancy capuccino every day.
9. Use a discount brokerage rather than a full-service brokerage and save on trading fees.
10. Use a good tax software program or talk to an accountant in order to maximize your yearly tax deductions.

There you have it...you have just read my own list of ways to save money. If you want to find more ways to save money, check out this list of "25 Ways to Save Money" - http://www.milliondollarjourney.com/25-ways-i-save-money.htm
