Always Anchor Your Child's Play Set
Always anchor your child's play set in deep concrete or you might have this problem! Our neighbor had this beautiful play set & pool for their children. All of the kids in the neighborhood loved to go to their house. One evening after dinner we had a West Virginia wind and this is the result. - Ellen

Smelly Cast Iron Pot
When our mother passed away, we cleaned out her home, inside of the oven we found a cast iron pot in which she had fried fish and never got a chance to clean. It is a beautiful cast iron pot which I do not want to throw away but despite my efforts in cleaning, it will not shed the fishy smell.

Hanging Clothes in the Winter
In the winter time you can still hang your clothes to dry if you have someplace to hang some clothesline or rope.

I have been buying cheap ground meat to save money but my husband just got a not so great cholesterol test result back. Instead of paying 3.00-4.00 a pound for 96/4 lean meat, I have been boiling the hamburger meat draining it, boiling a second time, then frying in the frying pan.

Save Your Grocery Receipts For Future Rebates
Save all your grocery receipts in an envelope for several months instead of just tossing them away. I would find a rebate a week or two after I purchased an item and even if I had the upc I had already tossed the store receipt. So now I keep them just in case a refund or rebate comes along for something I've purchased. By Judy
