  • CFLs, LEDs, ILBs?

    Where "ILB" means incandescent light bulbs, as in old fashioned incandescent bulbs. We were told that they were forced into obsolensce the first of this year. We were lied to or someone got his facts all twisted up, because incandescent light bulbs are still available and there are even some fairly cheap ones around. You see, they were ...

  • Frugal Lawn Care

     Does anyone really enjoy taking care of a lawn all summer? Will you please come and take care of mine? That's one of the things that I do not like about warm weather.

  • Do You Shop at Dollar Stores?

     I have done this over and over... buy something at another retail store, then go to a Dollar store for something else and find that whatever it was that I bought was at a much better price there.

  • The Cheap Easter Basket

      Those woven Easter baskets are cheap to buy, but the cheapest ones don't last for more than one Easter. A frugal parent knows that you should put away the Easter baskets to be reused, but if they have fallen apart since last year, then what? Instead of buying yet another cheap basket, or worse, plopping down good money for more ...

  • Container Tomatoes

    When my daughter lived in an apartment, she had a nice balcony where she gardened in containers. Since she loves tomatoes, of course she had to plant a couple. The biggest problem was that her balcony faced due west and here it gets blazing hot in the afternoon on a west facing balcony! Tomatoes are hot weather plants, but even they don't ...
