My Carbon Footprint

Well, my carbon foot print took a hit today, I flew to Baltimore on business. Both flights were at least pretty close to full.
I've done a half-ass effort at determining my carbon footprint before and it wasn't very good. Now with this, and flying again in June for Bitbee's college registration and again in September to get her to college. Ouch!
Guess I need to do a much better effort at all the other parts of my life to make up for it.

So I went shopping yesterday. I haven't bought anything new for myself in quite a while, sitting here thinking I don't even remember.

I have a business trip next week and was looking at getting a nice winter coat(current coat is 4-5 years old), maybe a new pair of shoes (lost bought a pair 2 years ago), and maybe a new shirt off of clearance. In the end, I bought nothing. I just couldn't bring myself to do it.

I couldn't find a coat I liked in my size, I found a great pair of shoes, but at $55 I just couldn't justify it, and JCPenney had a ton of shirts/sweaters on clearance, and yet even though I would have only been paying 25% of the original cost I just couldn't do it.

So I need to start hitting the second hand shops, cause, the impetus this time was the trip, but reality is, I need some new clothes.
