Finally Frugal's Weekly Roundup. . . .

In honor of Earth Day, my weekly roundup will focus on green issues (with a little money saving advice thrown in, of course!)

Cash Money Life published a great post that includes 12 daily activities to save Mother Earth---and save yourself some cash, as well!

Debt Free Revolution writes about re-using plastic containers. I refill my water bottles again and again---I no longer buy packs of water, because they're just not environmentally friendly. Plus, bottled water is expensive---and is just tap water anyway!

Get Rich Slowly tells us how to stop junk mail---an incredible waste of trees and resources!

Sasha at Consumerism Commentary wrote a wonderful post about paying more for certain things because it's the right thing to do. She calls it ethical consumerism.

Generation X Finance comments that perhaps the consequences of rising food costs will be beneficial to us as a society.

Punny Money is 'right on the money' when he writes about the 55,000 "eco-terrorists" who purchased Hummers last year.

Paula over at Queercents discusses the cost of going green, and the personal choices we can all make to both save money and help the earth.

I hope you enjoy all of these posts as much as I did! Happy weekend, everyone!

I've started to ride my bicycle as a health alternative. I find that I save a great deal of money because of that.

Going back to basics, with less convenience means saving money and is better for the environment.

Junk mail waste is a huge problem for us all. There are a few more places that it's important to go and remove your name - particularly to get rid of the local advertisers.

I put together a Squidoo page with all the research and easy links. It's only 4 steps, all free, and will drastically reduce this junk mail, catalogs, pre-approved offers, etc.

Check it out at Eliminate Junk Mail and help spread the word.

Thanks, Barbara! I checked out your website and I like the message and the links. I agree: so much paper is wasted with junk mail that we neither need nor want.

To my readers: I encourage you to click on Barbara's link and sign up to eliminate (or at least decrease) pesky junk mail. . .
