    There are so many resources now to find women owned businesses. It only takes a few minutes to find what stores and restaurants are woman owned.

In densely populated areas, owning a car can be expensive due to parking expenses. In lower income areas, many people do not have cars. In...

    Keep track of food waste as been very insightful for me. I realized that the majority of my food waste either comes from letting left overs or produce go bad in the fridge or from restaurants over serving food. I usually get to-go boxes, but things like French fries just aren’t worth taking home. I definitely will be more conscience about...
