Frugal is Green

Being frugal really is being "green". I would consider both my wife and I to be frugal and green yet we both have cars. Let the record show neither of our cars are hybrids nor do we have any intention of getting a hybrid. The reason for this is that we live in Chicago and we only use the cars when we really, really need to. Her parents live in Elgin so we drive out there. I'm really trying hard to think of another time recently we've taken the cars out...and I can't. I'll tell you this, though--I don't feel like I'm "skimping" on anything or being cheap. If you live in or near a big city and are willing to give up 30 minutes of your day to "waiting around", your best bet (for both your checkbook and Mother Earth) is public transportation.
