- Unplugging unused or chronically charged appliances (like our handheld vacuum)--I'm really terrible about this, and need to make more of an effort, especially when we leave on trips.
- Putting a brick or plastic milk jug filled with pebbles in the toilet tank to save water (and money) with each flush.
- Actually remembering to bring cloth or used plastic bags with me to the store so I won't need new ones. I usually have good intentions, but often forget. Another option I'm interested in is these that I saw featured here.
My goal is to begin practicing these ideas from today on. If you read through the article, I'd love to know which of these ideas you're already implementing in your home, and what you'd like to challenge yourself with.
