I just re-read the first page. I soooo needed this reminder/pep talk/shot in the arm!
One thought I'd add: don't just recycle catalogs if you get them in the mail.
Tear off the page with your address and bring it to your computer.
Go to the website for whoever sent you that catalog, copy your address exactly as it appears on their label,
and tell them to take you off their list and not share your info with anybody else.
I did this determinedly for just a few months, and now we get no junk mail at all. NONE.
Our paper recycling bin fills up so much more slowly now. It's fabulous. Plus I get that smug feeling that I'm saving the planet
