Bag #401!!! Was at the park across from where I grew up.

March 6, 2021

Thank you for following along my plastic picking journey! This is Dr. Plastic Picker who can only be Dr. Plastic Picker if I’m picking up plastic! The first official bag for March 2021 was at Rohr Park which is across from where I grew up. I live in a different neighborhood now, but this park and Bonita are still where I feel most at home. Our tween just started volleyball in that area (masked and distanced practice) and I got a bag around the bike trail and park. It was actually very clean already, but always a lot of stray plastic water bottle caps.

No profound musings this morning, just the facts folks! For February 2021 due to multiple other climate work distractions but focused on my plastic picking commitment, I picked up [drum rolls please] . . .

Wow I just learned how to cut and paste that table! See even MD me can still learn. This weekend I’m busy continuing to outline the article for our group for the Journal of Applied Research in Children, and also refinancing two of our rental properties. I oddly like reviewing our numbers and submitted financial statements to various lenders. Refinancing at times is like litter-picking or trashart. Out of nothing, you can make something. And for one property without any change in monthyl payment, I am going to shorten the length of the payment period by 5 years and save us $70K!!! This the power of having good credit, and following interest rates. It’s super hard I know for everyone to get started reaching financial independence. But the first step is to separate your self-worth and happiness from things that actually cost money. Money is just a means to an end, and all the money in the world is not going to help if our planet melts!!! Given the great interest rates we’ll be generous this month with our donations. We are almost at the point that we have helped preserve or plant a half a million trees. Isn’t that crazy? Well that’s the power of financial independence and save the earth (FISE).

Pretty tree at Rohr Park.
