I guess I'm a selfish bit@$ because I'm expecting my 8th. I'm destroying the world with my spawn! LOL!
I would bet that my family create less trash than many of the average CM families.
We cloth diaper (making some of my own from old clothes). We homeschool (not taking up space in school). We home birth (not taking your rooms in the hospital). We are not on assistance. We hunt when we can (eat what we kill). We are starting our garden, so we will eat what we grow. We will be raising rabbits for meat, and ducks and chickens for eggs. We cook a lot at home (don't eat out much bc we can make it cheaper, healthier, and taste better from home). We do buy new clothes (many when on sale), but also garage sale and thrift store shop (I got some almost new Doc Martins for $5). We hope to go solar again in a few years. We line dry. We also own our place outright.
That's all I can think of right now. LOL!
Anyway, just because someone has a "big family" doesn't mean we're wasteful. Most big families are pretty frugal and know how to work it. :)
