Daily life is not getting cheaper. Why not try to minimize living costs. You can also help the world, just with a small thing. Begin with something like growing spring onion in a glass of water.
Cut only a part of spring onion you need to use at the time and you can put the root in a glass of water. They grow very quick and within 2 weeks, you can cut them and use them in another meal again.
Also other herbs.....just a glass of water!
