I went grocery shopping last night and actually remembered to bring my own bags. I usually forget about them, so I am happy that I remembered them. I even saved 20 cents by using my own bags because target takes off 5 cents for every bag you bring. It is not much, but it is a start.
Speaking of cheating, I love cooking in my crockpot. Dinner gets made and I really don't have to do anything. It is wonderful!
