Quote of the weekend, from Stringy:
It's been so nice having one place where all my keys, bags, outdoor gear live, a one-stop shop, that I'm thinking of setting up a laptop/charging station to keep all of my electronics in one place too. Plus that way all my electronics could be plugged into a strip that I can switch off easily to reduce vampire power drains.
You are at the end of Week Four. We're learning that many effects of the Cure lend themselves to a way of life that is not only simpler, but also greener. From Maxwell comes a request for your "done" list. Please put yours in the comments below, and see Kathryn's comment on our last Green Cure post for an inspiring example.

We've been traveling this week, but we'll still get our three meals at home in our kitchen. We've been thrilled with our weekly organic grocery delivery, which has inspired us to cook more at home and have friends over (it's easy when there's already a bunch of food there!) We swear we're feeling better, too.
• Need more inspiration on the cooking thing? Head over to The Kitchen.
• New to the cooking thing? Is Maxwell's roast chicken recipe just too intimidating for you? Don't stress about it. Take small steps towards cooking from scratch, but start by cooking something that really tastes good. Check out A Twist of the Wrist: Quick Flavorful Meals with Ingredients from Jars, Cans, Bags, and Boxes by Nancy Silverton for quick, elegant ideas, many of which are focused on less processed prepared foods, like takeout roasted chicken.
• Keep an eye out for good looking, simple bookcases-this co-editor would appreciate some help with the deIkea process. :)
This Week's Assignment:
In the Deep Treatment we tackle the Living Room. For some of you this may be a big deal, for others it may not be as much trouble. Either way, this is probably the time to tackle your BOOKS. These are a very pesky element that can be very hard to edit. You are also cooking at home three times this week.
The One Room Workout gets to tackling shopping and considering Carb and Protein furniture if you haven't already. I urge you to buy quality when you shop. In addition, if you are entering prices into a shopping list/spreadsheet, don't forget that we have these available here for you to use.
Info:The Cure posts will go up twice a week on Mondays and Fridays, allowing for plenty of comment space. We will be pulling comments and pics to the front page post each week and everyone is urged to take pics and post them to this great Flickr pool or simply tag them with "ATgreencure."
