Speaking of Earth Day (and you know you were)

Why does a receipt from Lowe's for a single item ($10.95) take almost two feet of paper?

Why do both major home improvement stores do this? Another reason I love my two local "mom-n-pop" hardware stores.

I don't know... bu tthey make good compost. :)

If the two feet receipt isn't bad enough, I have one from Sears for the purchase of one TV that can line all my drawers in my kitchen and maybe my closet too.

Excellent ideas, everyone! I suppose what you don't use for composting or drawer lining you can shred and use for packing material (down with styrofoam peanuts!)

And Mike, I just wish our local mom-n-pops carried everything we needed at the hours we need them.
