I think I'm really going to be serious about scrutinizing all of the toys in our playroom and want to plan out just how I can make all our gifts this year for Christmas. I wasn't kidding in my post yesterday. It just makes sense- from a "greener point of view" and also until I feel confident in what I am spending our money on for now.
And also, if anything, it's a time to re-think about the excess in my home right now. I would be embarrassed if some of you could see how many toys my kids have. I can blame it on loving grandparents and aunts & uncles, but you know, I could do something about this if I really wanted to.
Amy at Musings Of A Crunchy, Domestic Goddess has a great post with some good ideas during this time. I think we need to take this stuff seriously. I don't feel like I am acting in fear, but out of awareness. The only way we can get things to change is to do something about it!
