A reusable white shopping bag over a kitchen appliance.

Two dogs sitting in a house.

BB and Uno (Dogs)These sweeties were on a kill list at a Memphis TN shelter. Both had health issues and had little chance of adoption. They were transported to Ohio for us by a Lab Rescue. BB has been cured of the mange she was suffering from, and Uno is currently midway through treatment for heart worm.


A tea bag added to a quart of water.

Flavored WaterThis is a trick I learned from my granddaughter. I put a tea bag in a quart jar of water, set it in the refrigerator and let it steep over night or longer. The next day, I have some great tasting flavored water to drink and I just add a little lemon juice to it. It is good and it helps me to be able to drink at least 2 quarts of water a day. One is flavored and the other is not.


Brown sugar in a mixing bowl.

No Mix Homemade Brown SugarBeing frugal isn't complicated. It tends to be just the opposite. Over the years, I've shown appreciation for tips submitted by littergitter, Sandi/Poor But Proud and others, that make things unbelievable simple. Here's one from me.



A porcelain baby doll.

Value of Porcelain Doll?When I was 5, my neighbor gave me this doll before moving out. She was 60ish, I'm 13 now. The doll says 733FA on its neck. I'm not sure if it means anything or not and if it has anything to do with the price or date or whatnot. I can't find any date or anything on the doll. I want to sell the doll to get some extra money. How much would be reasonable to sell it for?

A bug on a white background.

What Kind of Bug is This?I recently found these bugs in my bathroom along the baseboard, all dead. I have even seen one or two crawling inside my bathroom sink and even more in and around my tub. They are very tiny, moves slow. You can't see them on the dark floor but they stand out against the sink and tub. I took a swiffer and ran it along the wall and it was tons of them dead. Please help.

I really don't know if one or both have them, but I do know that the worms are little white ones.
