If you’re not really a plant person, or if you have a history of plants not surviving while under your care, one of these three varieties are good options to start with.  Plus, all three of these plants have the added benefit of needing less water, increasing their earth-friendly benefits.

Go 100% paperless for a day

The majority of us are already mostly paperless, but can you make a conscious effort to be 100% paperless for an entire day? Here are a few ideas for upping your paperless practice.

  1. Don’t use any sticky notes for the day

  2. Share a digital business card

  3. Take notes on your phone

Guess what??? You can get it done in just three days! It’s super easy! Take my 3-day Paper Declutter Challenge.
