Hello and Welcome!

India - Sights & Culture - 027 - Chalk & flowe...Image by mckaysavage via Flickr Welcome to my shiny new blog!
If you came from Alone in Holy Land then you know me, if not...well, please go for a short visit on my main blog. This one is kind of a younger sister of the other blog of mine. But why one more blog, I hear you asking....As if there are not enough out there on the World Wide Web. The truth is, I needed a place where to muse about this new avenue of mine: living for one year without spending one dime. OK, one shekel, as I am living in Israel at the moment...Besides the bare necesities needed to survive - for me and my family - husband, 4 years old daughter and the ocassionally visit from the 25 years old son. No books, clothes (if I can help it), no eating out, no make up, no new stuff in the house (only if it is for free or a super-bargain or some household item that would break and couldn't be fixed). No ore wasting in the kitchen , I am going for zero leftovers policy.
I want to tell you that it is a very big deal for me. This kind of experiment needs a lot of planning and thinking ahead and I am no good at that. I am not a good cook, no great homemaker, but I feel that I need this in my life. I am ready, as Spongebob says. I barely know how to sew ot knit, but this is the time to learn it. I am excited about all this malarchey. A new beginning of some sort. And believe me, I need it . I need to regain control of my like and I think this is the way I could do it.
Of course, I cannot do this by myself, so please be by my side, the same way you are on Alone in Holy Land.
Come with me on this adventure and who knows, maybe we'll learn a thing or two on it...
