I was wondering how many of you are still doing stuff now that fuel prices have dropped and the economy is the tank? I have been doing a plan with the wife to clean up debt and take out unnessary stuff. how are you guys doing?

Nope, went back to driving 75 mph in the Diesel. MPG's are down to 16 from 20 but I get where I'm going a lot faster.

We went out and bought another SUV.

However we did buy 4 CFL's for the house. Does that count?

Are you still being Green?
Are you talking just about gas consumption? If so then I was never green. I let my vehicles run for ever in my driveway every morning while I get ready. Sometimes for up to 2 hours.


Now if you mean all aspects then I guess my answer is a little different. We had to go and buy a 2nd recycle container and might need a 3rd.

We recycle more than we put in the garbage. Some weeks we can skip taking the garbage out but need to dump our recycle 2 or more times in a week.

Are you trying to save money or save the planet?

Global warming is a lie, you know that right? Carbon offsets = Bull

The "green" movement must die!!!!

Sold the motorcycle, trying to save as much money for the wedding and other future plans. I'm also trying to cut out spending money on dumb crap we don't need.

Katie and I have also become somewhat of coupon freaks. Since June just doing that has saved us about $300-$400.

The wife and I are also clearing out debt. I took a second job to help pay off bills. Still drive a POS to work rather than the Jeep unless the weather is really bad. CFLs in all light sockets. Dont go out to dinner or the bars more than 1x a month (helps that it is REALLY cold here in St Paul). Netflix has been great this winter!

Lies, all lies. Man has not warmed the globe, sorry.
Why are the ice glaciers melting, for shits and gigs..

I have changed a little i do 73-75 on the HW cause the truck gets the best MPGs like 18-20 (cummins) but when i hit 77-80 i seem to see a big drop to about 16.. and my grand cherokee '03 gets about 17 on the HW at any speed with the V8..
