Double Coupons at Fred's Discount StoreFred's Discount Store has double coupon day on Saturdays. I wasn't aware of this until one Saturday I used a coupon & noticed the cashier doubled it. I asked & found out that on Saturdays they double the coupons - even $ 1.00 coupons! By Ameyers Editor's Note: We don't have these in our neck of the woods. Looks like a big chain in the south.

Avoid Water Moccasins by a PondSeveral years ago, we were feeding the ducks at a local pond when we noticed there were little heads sticking up eating the bread also. We assumed they were moccasin, and it turned out they were. Moccasins are venomous, and baby ones like to come to the shore often and search for food, or just watch. They are amusing but dangerous. So my tip is to watch your feet when at the pond feeding ducks. Moccasins are known to be very interested in goings on around the pond. Racer

Cigarette Odors in CarThis is an old used car dealers trick. Take a 2 lb can of any type ground coffee and cut up two onions in big chunks, mix this with water in a large metal boiling pot, like the kind you cook pasta or corn on the cob. Put it in the back seat and roll up the windows and let it bake in the sun for 1 day.

Better Interest Rate on Credit Cards?I am trying to get a better rate on my credit card. It's currently 15%. I have pretty good credit and would like to be paying this off a lot faster. I am paying over the minimum but can't pay anymore so a lower rate would help a lot. Anyone have any tips or things to watchout for? I don't want to do something that makes my situation worse. Banks are scary :-) Thanks, Ani
