10. I work in the country, hence I live here.
But I several years ago I decided to do three things, knowing the shit would hit the fan soon:
1. Get a wood stove so I don't have to be reliant on propane soley for heat
2. Get a car with a small 4cl gas sipping engine, even though my old Hyundai Santa Fe got a decent 24 mpg
3. Grow more of my own food.

Well #1 has paid off big time. #2 has worked out well, so that even when I have to go to the city or the airport, I'm not blowing out a whole tank of gas. # 3 is still a work in progress.

But I think the biggest thing overall was buying a house 20 years ago with double insulation. It really is a thing a beauty when I compare my energy bills and feel the comfort of my house vs some others that I know.
