Wish List

In general, I try to consume fairly minimally (well, other than books, but that’s another post for another time).  However, I do have a running list of things that I would eventually like to obtain that would help with living a more sustainable and frugal life .  So, in an effort to keep in mind the things that I actually want and possibly spur my frugal self towards eventually buying some of them, this is my ongoing wish list.

  • Solar panel and battery charger

Hygiene and cleaning:

  • Laundry drying rack
  • Laundry tub and wringer washer
  • Agitator
