    I've decided I need to make a point of either fixing, sorting, or cleaning one item I don't normally work with every single day. Anyone care to join in? Today I'm going to fix a wind chime that was given to us for our thirty-fifth wedding anniversary. One of our resident squirrels chewed...

    My DD has a pair of jeans that she loves to wear. She has worn them so much that the seat of them has worn through. I offered to try to fix them for her but need help determining the best way to do it. There is a worn spot just to the right of the left seat cheek. I thought about putting fancy...

    Hello, I have a question about lamps. I just moved into an apartment and wouldn't you know it, 3 lamps stop working. I am not sure if it had anything to do with the outlets here or they just died. Now my question, has anyone ever changed out the part of the lamp where the light bulb screws...

    I found at my store a big bag of Stauffer's chocolate animal crackers. A serving size 16 crackers (a big handful) comes to about 5 cents. Not a bad price for a treat. I fixes a chocolate craving for me. Sort of tastes like a brownie to me. I just checked out walmart.com and they say they...

    Don't ask me how this happened, but somehow a fork ran through our washing machine and when it reached our dryer it made a hole in the filter screen (where the lint collects) Has anyone repaired or replaced one of these? Our dryer is about 15 years old, a Maytag fwiw. What did you use to...

    I received this in an email this morning and it is too funny not to share. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did: Click on the picture to make it bigger. This stupid yet humorous mistake was apparently made by an employee at Walmart who was decorating a cake. Walmart Employee: “Hello ‘dis...

Had to throw out the box spring...seriously, it had been through at least 4 family members...it was done. Anyway, instead of buying a platform or building one from scratch (even though they are cheap)...

    I had a real dumb moment and missed the new interest rate, and I have a high balance on this card. If I go by balances, I'll end up paying nearly $3000 more in interest. However, if I pay it first, I'd save that $3000. It doesn't lengthen or shorten the amount time paid, we're looking at...

    And how you can too. I work in the IT field in my day job, so an admission like that is often greeted as though I am admitting to suffering from alcoholism or some terminal illness. Many of my coworkers habitually upgrade their PCs every 2 years or so. I used to live the tech glam lifestyle...

    Last week I was out walking my dog on trash day. As I was walking past my neighbor’s trash heap (I say heap because they always have more trash than will fit in the trash can and they just pile it up on the road), I noticed a cute wire basket that was decorated with painted wooden sunflowers. I...

    With dismal sales this year you should be able to find grill parts still hanging around at your local big box store. Some people don't realize that when the grill "goes' it just needs a new burner, which is easily replaced. Also you can buy fire proof black paint to freshen up the appearance...
