Watch your pennies & dollars tend to take care of themselves.

Do you throw out pantyhose that have a snag or run? Tsk, tsk!  There are dozens of uses for used pantyhose or even the nylon anklets.  See Pantyhose Recycling and add your ideas at the bottom of the page.

One of the homemaker's blessings in modern times is the clothes dryer.  Dryers have their drawbacks, however, mainly in cost of use.  See some hints that can help in several ways.

Greens, lettuce and cut herbs can deteriorate quickly in the refrigerator.  To save them and keep them fresh and crisp, rinse, shake out all the water possible, and wrap tightly in a lightweight dish towel.  I keep a number of cheap light towels especially for this purpose.  Try it!

The water use of an average American household might serve an entire small village in the desert.  Over-use of water is environmentally unfriendly, and also can put a dent in your budget.  Here's some ideas to save money:  Water Woes.

Beans are a valuable addition to the diet - they have many nutrients, a cheap source of protein, and lots of fiber.  While canned beans are a valuable resource, for big families, economy's sake in tight economic times, or for an emergency stock, dried beans are a great choice too.  See how to store and cook frugally.

I love Dole mixed greens salads, but was experiencing a significant loss and losing time sorting them over, until I hit upon a solution for a better and safer salad!

Never, never waste tomato!  Keep a sturdy pint freezer bag in the freezer door labeled "tomato".  Dump in leftover spaghetti sauce or pizza topping, tomato sauce, soup or paste, salsa, rinsing from ketchup or chili sauce bottles, even chopped bits, scooping and trimming from fresh tomato.  When you need a little color or flavor in a dish you are cooking, just break off a piece!

With gas prices going so high, we have to make every trip count.  I have several 5" x 8" yellow pads on little clipboards hanging in various places; any memo pad that hangs will do.  One is for groceries; any time someone opens the last of anything, they must write it down on the pad to avoid multiple trips to the grocery.  Another is for things that need to be done while you're out there: pick up dry cleaning, stops at library, grocery, hardware, etc.  Plan your route for the least mileage and maximum items accomplished.

Make a package of bacon last longer, without spoilage, yet be right at hand when you need it. Cut in half, and place the amount you usually use at each meal (or should use!) and place in cheap zip seal sandwich bags.  Put all bags into a larger freezer bag and put in freezer.  To use, just place a packet in very warm water for a few minutes.

In my freezer door I have pint size freezer bags labeled "peppers", "onion", "mushroom" and "tomato".  When I use part of a pepper, onion or tomato, or part of a package of mushrooms that will soon be over the hill, I chop the rest and toss it in the correct bag.  Then when I'm in a hurry I can use them for stir fry, soup, salsa, or whatever else I need it for.  If you want just little, it will break off or separate easily.

Leftover canned tomato paste?  You can afford to let that go to waste.  Drop by the tablespoon as you would cookies onto a foil or plastic-wrap lined small pan or casserole; "flash-freeze" until hard. Bag them into a zipper-seal pint freezer bag, labeled. Add, still frozen, to hot sauces, soups and stews as needed.
