SAve money being Green..

Think cheap!

One should minimize plastic use by using Brita water and own containers of aluminum for one. Read more here.

recycle too.

my tip is to compost as often as can as minimizes trash may have to pay to remove if own own home.

Caulk it...if you have drafts..


If you are like most people, you are concerned about saving money and especially heat at this time of the year. I know my propane bill has gone from $ 3.29/gallon and $ 329. for 100 gallons and $ 200 a month useage on the average to $ 3.99/gallon,$399./100 gallon tank and $ 270/month on the average,ugh!

Now you can caulk away your drafts in your windows, doors and keep some of your heat in,the cold out and your heating bill down. Yeh! Read more about it here.

Went to Apple Fest in Cairo,NY..


It was nothing to write home about and many of the items were way overpriced so didn't buy any aple pies for $ 10. or the sausage and peppers sandwiches for $ 7.! Nuts..To top it off,later ifn the day they were asking $ 2. to get in..I bought some books to support the library at a great price. They were $ 1 a book and the large books for a coffee table were $ 3. i bought a pair of opalite earrings from a vendor and some apple cidar donuts for $ 1. and ate som chili for $3 with a piece of tastey corn bread to stay warm. Later I went back and tried some dry pulled pork on an unappeizing hot dog oll for $2. Thy had live entertainment such as a 50's band named 'Dusk ot Dawn'. Gus is why they were asking money to get in to cover the cost of the band. I can hear it fromm my home as i live right near the park so i didn't pay anything. It was cold out so didn't stay long.Today i will have my yeard sale to hopefully get rid of some stuff to lighten my load to move and make some moving money.

I sold earrings of sterling silver and gem stone for $ 15, to a hair salon store owner, that normally costs $ 22! no, the cost of silver and shipping it did not go down folks. I simply want to sell what I have as is overstock.
