Hey!  Welcome to Home on Tuesday, where every Tuesday I scour the internet to find great tips on design, cleaning, automobiles, organization, and more!  Please note that I will be out of town tomorrow and so Working Wednesday will be postponed until next week.  Please subscribe to Life Lists’ RSS feed so you can be updated each time there is a new post!  Please feel free to leave your comments, even if it is to say hello!  I see you are coming by, so don’t be shy, just say hello! 🙂  See you on Thursday!  Enjoy!

7. Everyone wants to go greener these days- whether you care about the future of the environment and a balanced ecosystem or just for the sake of cutting costs in the belly of a recession.  EcoHomeResource.com has a plethora of resources to help you achieve a greener living space from your kitchen to your nursery.

This is the first post for Home on Tuesday, part of the new weekly schedule here at Life Lists.  I was going to add this first article I linked to as the post for today, but found it was more user-friendly on their own site.  Plus, I found a couple of other articles I couldn’t wait to share with you.  So, here you go!  Hope you find something useful!

1. Check out these deliciously creative ways to showcase your collectibles in your home from Better Homes and Gardens, whether the collections are family heirlooms or baseball memorabillia.

2. Where you live depends greatly upon how you plant and cultivate your garden.  Get gardening tips specific to your geographic location from Lowe’s (U.S. only).

3. It’s on nearly everyone’s minds these days.  Gasoline is expensive and in a lot of cities and towns in the U.S. (and, indeed, around the world), cars are a must because of the lack of public transportation (or where I live, even sidewalks).  So, how can we be greener if we can’t give up our cars?  Ethenol, perhaps?  Well, the hosts at About.com’s Hybrid Cars & Alt Fuels try to get to exactly what is Ethenol, and the pros and cons of its use.

4. Take a look at the Innovative Project of the Week, brought to you by Interior Design Magazine.  This week’s project was designed by Barker Nestor.
