    I am going to drive my bike to work… at least one way for a start.
    Also will change all of my lights to fluorescent bulbs. By changing just one bulb results in savings of over $45 during its lifetime!

    I also grind my own flour and make my own bread! You do save money!

    I am actually going to be working. When we get plumbing jobs in jacksonville we take them and people want their bathrooms remodeled so we have to get them done! Then I am going to eat a big steak and watch the fireworks from my dock.

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such wonderful info being shared freely out there.
