How do I cut heating costs this winter?
On occasion, run your dryer without plugging it into the vent (the part that shoots all that steamy, warm, nice smelling air out into the cold). Cover vent (dryer side) with a knee-high nylon (to trap fuzzies). Do your laundry. You'll breathe easier, your house will be warmer, and it will smell like clean clothes! If it gets too warm (don't mind the steamy windows, take a minute to draw some fun doodles), just open the door or a window. Enjoy!

    We keep losing buttons off shirts. How canI replace them and actually make them last?

    Answer: Use dental floss to sew them back on. Make sure you slide a comb or clean fork behind the button as you stitch to leave some "play" in the thread so you have room to button up!

  • Shopping....

    Always wait for the sales, use the recycle bags (super markets pay you to use them)and use coupons... Usually in some clothing stores, they get new stock in each weekend, so the stuff you see pricey the first week, usually goes on sale the next week....

    Keep an eye out where you shop.... Trust me, ex. Mandees-new sweater 30.00 this week, 20.00 the following week, they get new stock each week....

  • How do I save money on shopping for groceries and such?

    You can go to wonder sites such as (if you have a local one) or your local grocery store and see if they offer edigital coupons (Kroger does for sure) and load them to your card or print them out. Clip coupons from the newspaper. Get with your co-workers and whatever coupons you don't need out of the paper pass them around the office and to friends to see if anyone needs them. ALWAYS check newspaper ads and see if the store will price match. Join and, etc.

    A friend of mine actually has so many coupons and such that she typically gets PAID to buy things! :)
