9. This one made me laugh at myself.....

21. When you buy anything, buy for the long term instead of the short term. Buy a product that is going to last for a long time, instead of buying the disposable or short term version. A good example is clothing. Higher quality brands will last much longer and hold up better, while cheaper brands often only get a few short wears.


I still use the safety razor that I got when I first started shaving my legs. It still works fine. Talk about not using disposables! That means no trash for about 45 years!

But the one tip that I will not do is to go camping on vacation instead of using a hotel. I used to do that all the time. But it is just too much work anymore and I am getting too old to keep up with it. When I go on "vacation", I want to totally relax. Sorry, folks.
