Early Xmas! by KenK
Was in Walmart on a grocery and other items trip yesterday (10/5) and found a huge Xmas area. Lots of trees and aisle after aisle of decorations, etc. Seems early, even for Walmart, but it may have happened last year too. Haven't noticed Xmas ads in the local paper but I skip almost all the...

Handy small tool by Vandy Terre
Seamstress seam ripper is a very handy small tool. In addition to the many uses while sewing it can be used to open shrink wrap without damaging the box beneath. It is also very handy to help remove the security tape on new DVD or CDs. It is also handy to open the plastic tape on medicine...

Locksets by The Real Bev[_6_]
So I finally got around to buying new entry locks for our front and back doors. Stupid new ones require a bigger hole because they've installed some sort of protective shield around the works, requiring me to remove the thingy that goes into the doorframe and drill out the hole in the door...

Good electric razor? by KenK
It didn't used to be a problem but, for me, it has been now for several years. Finding a decent electric razor for male face shaving under $100. The ones I've purchased don't cut well or the shield over the blades develops a hole in under a year, with replacement shields unavailable locally or,...

Milk jug cover by [email protected]
I'm not sure whether you'd call this "frugal living" or just "shopping" generally. In the event that people don't know what a Milk Jug Cover is (also applies to Sugar Bowl Covers) I'll fill you in. Back in the good old days when Queen Victoria reigned over an empire on which the sun never set,...

Miracle Gro by [email protected]
Am I the only one who has noticed that it loses its potency kind of fast, i.e., you should use most of it as soon as you open it?: http://myflowerland.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Miracle-Gro-Hi-Res-Garden-Pro.jpg

"Is eating out cheaper than cooking at home?" by [email protected]
Answer: Yes and no. (Strangely, this doesn't mention how using the freezer at home can stretch your grocery bill! Or how restaurant food tends to have too much butter, as Anthony Bourdain will tell...

Family Phone Plans by Win User
I repatriated to the U.S. ahead of my family several months ago. I needed a phone right away and was steered back to MetroPCS. Now they had a $40 plan. Will add two more family members at +35 per member: $105/month. Is that a deal? The $40 plan has unlimited calling in the coverage area, 4G...

Good reliable monchrome printer? by KenK
I have an HP Deskjet 1000. Many problems with it and a warranty replacement. Finally gave up trying to use it. Canon Pixma MG3122. Keeps giving out-of-paper when there's plenty. Running built-in print roller maintenance seems to fix it but it's so frequent that it's a big PITA. Don't know how...

Menstrual products: How to save, big-time by [email protected]
I've been using mine (called "The Keeper" here in the U.S.) since 1992 or so - and it pays for itself in just a few months! Plus, as Amy Dacyczyn pointed out back then, it's ridiculous that tampons cost as much as disposable diapers - not to mention how much they add to landfills. This is from...

Telephone Bill by Artys[_2_]
Hello all, My landline bill keeps going up,up,up. I have heard of various devices, such as MagicJack, that might help. Also sometimes on television I see ads for various supposed devices/solutions. What might you suggest? What have you seen or found that could help?

Texas store with breakables bans kids; mother whines to the media by [email protected]
Not surprisingly, the offended mother of the six-year-old girl gives NO explanation for ignoring the clearly posted sign saying "no children please!!" Lots of comments, but I don't see any sign of the update the reporters promised. http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/local&id=9207602 ...
