Thanks Stanley

poweritI grew up in a ‘normal’ home in the 80s. We had a lot of things that plugged in. Fridge, stove, lights, washer, dryer, microwave, Atari, television, VCR, hair dryer, lawn mower…the list goes on and it completely made sense.

When I left at 20 and spent a decade living with roommates, we too had ‘normal’ apartments. Fridge, stove, lights, microwave, stereo , television, VCR, phone among a few other things.

When I started living alone in my 30s, I prided myself on how few things I had that plugged in. I would say “take out the fridge, stove and lights and I have 5 things that plug in. Alarm clock, computer, stereo, phone and hand mixer.” I instantly liked going lean when I was left to my own space.

Next year I enter my 40s and I have decided to take my relationship with energy one step further. I am going to start the process of shrinking my reliance on the current energy board. I really don’t want to go off the grid. I just want the grid to shift.  I love the little bit of convince and beauty that I live in right now but I believe it could be more intelligent.

The packing list so far – electric tooth brush, hand mixer, computer, cameras, phone and music docker.
