Last night I was reading the Winter Issue of Positively Green (you can check out there website as well at positivelygreen.com )and thought of Kimberly's issue with forgetfulness.

Just so happens that this issue's Simple Solution # 5 has to do with Remembering Your Reusable Bags.

Here are a few tips shared:

*Have enough so you can place them in multiple places (e.g. cars, backpacks, etc).

*Purchase several bags that fold up and fit in your purse so you are never without (I personally like chico bags, rume, or envirsax). These open up to full size bags that are perfect for mall shopping, quick errands, or to help you out at the store when you forget the standard store bag.

*If you forget your bags and are checking out at the store, put all your items in your cart without bags and maybe next time you won't be in the same jam.

*Place a note on your car dashboard.

*Just for laughs...someone said that she keeps her bags in her underwear drawer. That way if she forgets to take a bag, then she must have forgotten to put on underwear as well. HA!

Hope these are useful tips for you.

ah! What I do so I do not forget them ate home? Once they are washed, Y put them in front of the door. So, if I go out, the bags are on the way....

KIMBERLYSERPAS, have you tried putting the bags on your car trunk and letting them there? WE have the bags everywhere (they became so cheap) so we always have one handy...

Thank you for trying to think of something Greengirl....

For the Eco-challenge, I need to start NOT using grocery bags. I have the re-usable ones, but am having a hard time breaking the habit of forgetting them.

Ok. I am coming with a few ideas. We could start this on Jan 1st.

For an exercise challenge, how about 30 min of cardio 3 times a week? We could create a team goal and try to reach it.

For a Motivational challenge, we could try to post on the team board once a day.

I was considering another ecological challenge, but i still have to work this one better.

So, what do you think?

Ok. Why don't we work on them? How about a exercise and a "living green" challenges? I can come up with a couple of ideas....

I would like to see more 12-week (or so) challenges. That way, it's a longer period of time to reach goals.

We do a weekly challenge at our house. Its a lot of fun but hard to think of something new every week. I think we are now reusing ideas from before LOL

What happen to the monthly challenges???

I miss them, and I though it was a great way to try new things... so it would be great if we could have them back!
Any ideas?
