Wow, I really wish I kept track of half of that for our home!

I've got mileage and number of trash bags (as exciting as it has been for us) but that's about it.

Keep it up! :)

@Wonder-ful - I use a program called Wesabe that keeps track of most of it for me. When I first started this blog, I was trying to see if I could go green without killing our budget, so that's why I post my budget every month. Plus, it helps keep my spending in check, knowing I'm going to have to tell the whole world how much I spent.
