Initiate

Initiate a family Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse program at home. It takes the whole family to make it work and try to calculate the savings with them as well.

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

G - Grow your own

... your own tomatoes, cukes, herbs, whatever. (This will be limited by space and/or climate.)

... maybe even teach yourself some new skills. (I'm thinking we can use our already owned intellectual skills to achieve new growth.)

Eat in rather than eat out.

Eat at home most of the time.
Bring your lunch to work.

D-Donate soda cans to certain charities instead of tossing them in the trash. They can use the money and they get recycled in the process.

C-Choose wisely/Compulsive

I'm working on both of these which go along with A, which I'm working on also.

Choose wisely in order to control compulsive shopping and to also help avoid falling for unneccesary items, just because they are on sale.

Dear Lord, set my sights on You and Your great attributes. Help me to live in Your presence, dependent on Your guidance each day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

B-Bring your own bags wherever you shop, not just the grocery stores. All convenience and retail stores as well.

Let's see how many ways we can list to save money while being kind to ourselves and our planet.

Of course, we could just list all the different ways we can think of, but let's list make a game of it and try and list something for each letter of the alphabet.

A - Avoid buying things you don't need just because they are on sale.
