Evaluating Monthly ExpensesThe BEST way for me to evaluate my monthly expenses is to track every expense, no matter how small on an MS Excel spreadsheet. I compare those numbers to my budget and re-evaluate for the next month's budget. If I am over, I look to cut back and if I am under, I put the excess into savings.

Help With Children That Act OutThese are troubling times. I was surprised at the number of people I talked to who did not know that when your child is having a really stressful or emotionally trying time, or acting out for some reason or another, that there are programs for them to go to. The steps to get the child some help are as follows:
Book CrossingGive your books a good home instead of having them kick around and collect dust.
Free Tetris Game at 007ArcadeGames.comThis is a really relaxing game. They have pac man and space arcades with really nice sounds and video. Some cool games. I like to do them to de-stress from housework.

Frozen Pipes Keep BurstingWe live in a very old house in Maine. The subzero weather we have been having lately has our pipes bursting constantly. (We use mostly a woodstove to save on money, so our cellar is cold). Is there anything we can do to stop the pipes from bursting?
Cleaning Old Bathroom TilesHi there. I live in an old brownstone and have those small white hexagonal tiles in my bathroom (like most other old brownstones in Boston). They are quite old and are now pretty dingy. I have tried cleaning them with bleach, to no avail.
Does anyone have any ideas for getting the tiles white again?

Recipe on Brown Sugar BoxI am look for a recipe that I had years ago and foolishly loaned out and it never came home. The recipe was off the back of a box of brown sugar, either Imperial or Domino, but I'm leaning toward Imperial. The recipe was for a cake and it contained brownsugar, nuts and the secret ingredient was instant coffee crystals. It was a delicious cake, not too sweet, not too bready. I've already checked the websites for Imperial and Domino sugars and had no luck. I've almost given up, but maybe someone can help. Moral of this story... never loan the original of a favorite recipe.
