Soft Oatmeal CookiesThis recipe was the one I used often with a family of 7. With so many children, it was the easiest and cheapest recipe to make. Through the years, I have learned to slightly underbake cookies. They will be much better.

Garage Sales and Thrift StoresKeep you eye open at garage sales for HDMI cables or any other cables you are looking for. You can find cables that cost $10 for next to nothing. Newer cables, like HDMI, are also showing up at thrifty stores, so that's a good place to check.


A weeping willow tree.

My Frugal Life: The Willow StoryOne summer in July on a very hot day, there was a dreadful electrical storm. The willow was split down the middle. I joined the neighbors in a crying fest and then asked for some cuttings. I was told by all the neighbors I couldn't plant in the middle of the summer. I was bound to try.

Avoid Fees With Street ParkingIf you are fortunate enough to find a sacred parking space, you are probably paying a king's ransom. Most average no frill restaurants in L.A. offers valet parking in their parking lot. This is where I draw the line.

Grey Hair Doesn't Hold Color?I have a dark brownish real color hair, but I just turned 44 this month and the grey is totally stubborn when it comes to coloring my hair. I like to keep it a blond color with highlights and have noticed that after going to the salon my longer grey pieces of hair were still grey, like the color was only sticking until the first wash. I use the color shampoo and the color leave in conditioner. I know that there is nothing that I can do for the new hair growing in, but what should I do about the hair that has been colored or highlighted that goes right back to grey? I have asked at the salon and they just say yeah well some hair is more stubborn than others. I personally don't like paying people who answer me with a response like that. What would you do? I mean they have nothing at all to help me out and the lighter highlights make it look like it is just blond, but I am still so mad every time a professional can't help me! It drives me nuts. Thanks.

Tiny Biting Bugs in House and Hair?My family has been infested by an insect that you can barely see. It looks like a speck of dust and another looks like a very short hair. They don't bother the boys as much as me. They seem to want to nest in my hair, on my scalp. They don't seem to bite much, but I can feel them when they land on me, and it itches! It looks like a jumping grain of sand. Does anyone know what this is?
