    I need to buy a new front storm door and I am reading the reviews online and they are awful. I found a door at Lowe's - that had bad reviews; found one at HD - that had bad reviews. The Pella door has this hideous brass trim I hate. I want a bronze/brown door with two windows and a screen that...
  2. Question and Answer
    I tend to use aluminum foil to line baking dishes (saves on washing) and to wrap around bowls that are missing lids, etc. My problem is that the store brands do not hold up well and tear in a mess and the name brand, Reynolds, is pretty expensive. Has anyone ran across a brand that works for...

    I don’t need the media or the government to tell me that the economy is heading south. I have a foolproof barometer of economic health in my own town. It’s called the scrap heap, aka, the metal recycler. For about ten years, I’ve been collecting my aluminum cans and taking them to the scrap...

    When we first moved here 30 years ago we took full advantage of much the land had to offer. Over the years we had chickens, cattle, horses and always several dogs and cats. We didn't have much garbage as most got recycled. We burned our paper products outside or in the fireplace. What cans...

    Aluminum free baking powder. Does it hold up as well as regular aluminum type? I am using Rumford and it seems to loose its oomp in short order. I stir it up as well.

    If you do drink soft drinks then save those cans and sell them. We just sold $58.50 worth yesterday. I have a trash can set on the back porch with a bag in it. We just drop the cans in it and when its full bag them up and put them underneath the back deck. Very little work and a few extra bucks...
  10. DIY
    Anyone have any really great ideas that work? I've caulked and caulked, used wheel barrows full of caulk inside and out on our old aluminum storm windows. I kid you not, when I sit on the toilet in the front bathroom during a windy cold winter's night the breeze from the window by the toilet...

    Rhaynefall's thread on the can crusher got me thinking. There was a place near us that used to buy cans, and had a sign up about it. They had taken the sign down long ago, so I figured they weren't doing it anymore, and I didn't know of anyplace else to take them. So I kind of forgot about the...

    I know it's cheaper to do it with your foot, but I have a lot of foot problems and spent my whole childhood stomping cans and hated being forced to do it by my mom. Does anyone know where I can get a cheap heavy duty one? Non-electric is best. Would a hardware store (like Ace) have them or is...
