 My tip is about Kitty Litter..Kitty Litter is so bad and the plastic tubs and boxes it comes in is a waste of resources...We use newspaper...We get the free Thrifty paper and I shred it....I tip the whole lot in the trash when I take it out at night and shred a fresh one...the litter is completely changed every day..no tracking through the house wa cleaner there!! ....no environmental damage...and..IT'S FREE!!!!

I reuse my wipes containers (when they finally have to be replaced because the lid gets broken or whatever), to keep receipt and bills, the boys small video games, trading cards, etc

My dryer has an energy preferred setting that turns the dryer off as soon as the clothes are dry. I don't use any other setting.

 Another tip is to turn off the heated dry on the dish washer and dry by hand...its quicker...cheaper...and saves energy!!!
