We're a little more than half way through our week. I can proudly say that I haven't taken a single plastic or paper bag. I've had a few cashiers look at me like I was some sort of crazy hippie. The girl at Target when I said I didn't want a bag for my DVD really didn't quite understand, but I left without a bag.
I'm also reading Affluenza. I'm not as far as I'd like to be because I'm also committed to reading another book (Chasing Daylight - it's amazing how these two very different books seem to be shouting some of the same messages to me). But in the first 50 pages, I've already learned an awful lot about consumerism in America and how explosive it has become. I'll do a book review when I'm finished reading the book.
So how is everyone else doing with your challenges. I know Allison checked in the other day in the comments. I'd like to hear from the rest of you.
