If there’s a single question that Dana and I get asked a lot, it’s this one: “Where do you get the time to do this stuff?” We don’t mind the question at all – but I’ve just started to realize that it wasn’t rhetorical. Dana and I don’t really think about the answer all that often and don’t consider ourselves to be more active than many others, especially in this community. Frankly, I’m not sure my answers will be of any use to anyone else – but if this helps one person cook or share more, then I’m all in!
I suppose some of our time-savers come from our life situation: we don’t have children, we rent a loft and have no grass (but our back patio does have seats and tables for 30+ and kicks butt for dinner parties). We live downtown Toronto and have very close access to most of our common needs which also help. Dana works from home and thus has zero commute (although that is easily consumed by dog walking as we’ll share later)….
