It’s my most popular post for a reason – no one wants to scrub toilets! How to make your own DIY Toilet Cleaner Bombs.

Home recycling is a great way to go green. Here are great DIY Recycling Bin Ideas you can implement today.

From natural cleaning products, to organic food, to backyard chickens, and using cloth diapers [which started it all] – you’ll find we make a lot of mainstream green choices in our life!

Hello, I’m Lindsey!

I’m a Simple Southern Mama to two girls, Sophia and Moreaya, and one Aussiedoodle named Collie. I love to write about my favorite things, people, and foods – and everything in between! Thanks for stopping by!
