Simple Living Month: Day 11

Make conscious decisions regarding your cars. AKA Try to reduce your carbon footprint by reducing your trips or at least choosing the car with the best gas mileage.

Scout and I are lucky enough to have two cars, but his has much better gas mileage (but mine's cooler!) so when we go on long trips and when we go just down the road for groceries, we take his car to conserve gas.
We also try to think about where and when we are going somewhere, thus saving gas because we drive less.
We try not to make multiple trips to the same place (besides work and church) in the same week, making sure to save money.

Always, always, we try to carpool with each other and our friends to also conserve that gas and help the planet!

One day if we get a new car, I would love to get a hybrid or an electric car like the Nissan Leaf!
