4. minimal buying
Well, I have hardly bought anything this year except for food, pet food, car insurance, telephone bill, heating oil (as minimal as possible), vet bills (cats).

The reason is that:

1) I don't want to support *shrub-o-nomics
2) I don't want to support Made-in-China
3) I already have all the clothes etc. that I need
4) Cut down on expenses

I live in a very rural area and have to haul my own recycle-garbage. Thus I am cognizant about not doing wasteful stuff.

I'm not a green activist really, but I love to hike and do outdoors stuff, and I am a BIG supporter of conservation.
