We do everything we can to cut corners and reduce our spending. It's not only about the environment, but it's about not continuing to go into debt.
What do you do to save money? The natural grocers that we shop at has new sales every month, and when we see items that we use a lot (like organic olive oil), we try to buy several.
We happen to live less than a mile from Vitamin Cottage, and we walk there as much as possible. Just last week, we took a walk with Sophie's wagon to refill our jugs of water and buy a few things. I know that refilling plastic bottles has a few negatives (like potential plastic leaching after long-term use), but it's what we can do right now. We are trying to figure out what type of filtration system we could use that really filters.
During times like these, it can be easy for people to fall victim to depression and other emotional problems. The best thing to do is be positive. Don't be afraid to make positive affirmations, but don't give up if you don't see any drastic changes right away. It takes time, and you really have to believe what you are saying.
Be positive! :)
