    It was cool to see how many people also did food related projects. It's something we have control over which has a huge ecological impact.

One big reason I prefer using cards instead of cash is that it is so much easier to track how I spent my money monthly. So far my July spending breaks down into $175 services (Portland Art Tax for all of my family) because I used to live in...
