Blog Action Day 2009!

I just found out that today is Blog Action Day. I wish I had a little more time to prepare a post, BUT, in the spirit of spontaneity, here we are.

 The thing I know most about is organic stuff. Buying organic food, goods, and home things, is the best way you can personally help the environment on a day-to-day basis. And, fortunately, it's not always more expensive. As a student, I've become quite the organic goods bargain shopper... Here are some of my favorites.
