DH and I have traded work vehicles.
Not really. I already take the bus home from the shop; dh and I carpool to work. But we are driving more now because of dh's mom. She fell and cracked 2 of her vertebrae so we are stopping by her house once or twice a day to visit as she can't get out. I get either paper bags at the grocery store or use canvas bags. What plastic bags we (and dh's mom) get either gets reused as lunch bags, used as trash liners, dog poop, or taken to work by dh to be used for discarding used diapers. Most of the year, I get my eggs from my sister who has 9 chickens. We already eat little red meat, more fish, and several times a week, go vegetarian. Since there is only 3 of us at home now, laundry is down to 3-4 loads a week (more in the summer, less in the winter) and I use the clothes line which the girls didn't do. In short, our lifestyle really has changed much because of the economy but has changed because of other circumstances.

BTDT -- good luck to you -- I have to say that on the nights I go to my second job I often feel "oh I really don't want to do this" but then when I get there it's always really enjoyable... what are you going to do?
Yes. We. Did.
I haven't seen any legal ban on them here except in apt/condo communities. But not in single family neighborhoods. But I have encountered a social sigma about them.
I drive dh's car more often.
