Think cheap!

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

Bought a new color 3-in-1 color Printer at CVS for..



$ 39.99. WAs originally $ 89.99 but was on sale and t hen Ihad a coupon based on my shopping history. All I did was scan it and I received some coupons toward my new purchases! Fun!! The printer is a scanner and copy machine as well. There is no fasx or phone but..I stillhave my old printer for that if I choose to connect it but won't as I have no phone where I live at the moment. (Had had a problem connecting it as Verizon came out three times already! ugh..)

You can also save if you recycle your ink cartridges at Staples and also at the Lexmark web site. Lexmark has a better deal than Staples which offers a few dollars off on your next cartridge. They give you a FREE cartridge if you return 5.

Smoke em if you Got em..









If you don't then I suggest you got butting..What?! Well..you can get your old butts out of your ash tray or the ones you dumped on the ground or any hanging outside of businesses and use the tobacco to make your own cigarettes. My friend is doing this. He dries it for several minutes in the microwave before reusing!

We also went to the dump and hit the gold mine in that we found several beer cases left there full of beer bottles and caps. It totalled $ 13.60 so we were able to do our laundry and my friend the smoker was able to buy a pack of cigs. Not a bad day's work and it took but an hour. We plan on going back weekly on the week end when the dump is closed to get more...Helps as is hard to get any paid employment when you are on disability like us as noone wants us and we really needed the money especially this month what with the holiday and the fact that a check bounced causing 6 checks to bounce incurring bank fees. The beer bottle caps I use for my jewelry as like many artists who are broke but need material to make art so they use old product.

I think it is amazing and quite admirable how we are really using everything and not wasting nowadays. Don't you?!
