  1. How do you dry yours?

    Washing. I prefer mine dried outside, weather permitting. So much fresher, especially bed sheets then straight onto the bed, lush! I understand the use of tumble dryers, needs must an' all that but I don't get if you are able to, why not hang it outside? My friend has a huge garden but tumble...

  3. Question What to do with an extra bedroom?

    I've recently purchased a home which has 5 bedrooms. While we only needed 4, I couldn't pass this house up as it is literally the house of my dreams. I'll share a list of things we do NOT require, either because we already have that space or our family has no need for it: spare bedroom home...

  4. Sliding glass doors

    Have you gotten any lately? My husband wants new ones and I'm sort of on the fence about it. He wants the kind that have the internal little mini-blinds. Any experience pro or con? We wouldn't be installing ourselves, but any hints/tips would be appreciated, thanks!

  6. Freezer, on the top or on the bottom?

    Hubs and I thinking of getting a new fridge and were considering one with freezer on the bottom, to have the most used part higher up... easier on my aging back when pulling out 8 pound gallons of milk! Which do you prefer? Caveats? Thanks.

  7. Air Conditioner

    Today was the day we finally turned the air conditioner on for the first time this spring/summer. Temperatures are in the mid 80s (F) and it's been raining on and off for the last few days so it's very humid, heavy and although not hot, it's uncomfortable. It's been a cooler & wetter than average...

  8. Had any drycleaning done lately?

    Yikes! I just had my comforter and two shams done and it was $35! Comforter is way too large even for a commercial washer (plus I don't want to hang around a laundromat or scrounge enough quarters to do it!) and wouldn't have the same finish as dry cleaning does. It looks great, so that's...

  9. Holy expensive deck, Batman!

    I'm not sure of the exact square footage of my front deck, probably about standard master bedroom size or so, but the quote we got to replace it with Trex? SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS. I'm sorry, but any money like that we have is going into our retirement accounts! So, last week I demo'd (yes,...

  14. Saving Is Something You Should Do Every Day

    Americans have forgotten how to save in recent years. First, we came to regard the stock market as our piggy bank; if we needed a little spending money, surely we could always sell a few shares of stock or a bit of a mutual fund at a profit. Then, we viewed our houses as money machines that...

  15. using dripping in cooking

    If I wanted to make up " dripping" i.e.; saved meat juices to use for cooking, can I mix the meats I use? Googling led me to beef dripping, duck dripping etc but no mention of just combining it all into one dish to save. I know I used to have dripping sandwhiches as a child which were delish. But...
