How We Saved $10,000 in a Year Giving Up Nothing We Knew About

Times are tough.  People are losing their homes at record pace, sinking further and further into debt.  Auto repossessors are making a killing as car loans drop like flies.  But the truth is that things aren’t nearly as bad as we seem to think.  We perceive it as such because we are, in short, an utterly wasteful and gluttonous society.  Even those who constitute the low income households waste more money in a month than many people in the world will see in a year.  I know, I know.  This is the [more...]

Kate Kelly: Organize Your Recycling

Many years ago recycling happened naturally. In the early 1900s, people "made do" and re-used, from jars for canning home produce to hand-me-down clothing and toys for children.

The world has changed, and today we create a lot of waste. [more...]
