9. I have a garden
Helps out big time. Right now I get lettuce, spinach, salad greens, and radishes that I am eating daily. I have beans, snow peas, onions, carrots, beets, peppers, cucumbers and squash that will be producing through the growing season. What I don't grow will be bought at the local farmers market. This year I went to raised beds, which I built myself. I will be adding more raised beds this fall or next spring, and so far I love them!

I have been cutting down on my driving, and not that school is out, I can cut down even more since I don't have to take my son to school each day. I parked my diesel truck till next winter when I need to push snow, and my gas pickup is only used on rare occasions. I have a ford focus that gets an average of 30 miles per gallon, and I have gotten up to 35 on the highway, that is my main source of transportation. I have been slowly reducing the amount of grass in our yard each year to cut down on mowing. Every little bit helps!
