  1. Homesteading and gardening
    My deck abuts my back of my house and I would like to put a couple of hanging wall planters with flowers on that wall. Anyone have any suggestions for hanging plants on a wall?

    I just thought I would post this to you ladies considering there always is great advice on here from all of you. I have about 12 bras that are gently used, that I have hung on to for the last two years considering most of them were $40-$48 a piece hoping that I could fit back into them...

    I thought someone here may like this. I know someone who has one, dries food right in her living room. She likes it because it fold flat when not in use. http://www.dehydratorbook.com/food-pantrie.html

    I hang out my husbands and my own clothes on the line outside - but both our toddlers sneeze and have watery eyes after I hang theirs out. I'm determined to get this utility bill down this month so I need suggestions on alternatives on drying their clothes. They wear 2t and 4t clothing so you...

    I can't seem to hang anything to dry. They just won't do it! I have to use my dryer to at least partially dry things to hang them. Any tips? If it helps at all, I live along the coast in North Carolina. Rather humid area. I can't even leave my clothes in the washer thirty minutes past their...

  11. Question and Answer
    So we have the opportunity to buy half a beef at $1.75 lb hanging weight. That includes wrapping. Is that a good price? It has been so long since we have bought a whole or half beef. It seems like a good price to me, but I'm not sure what they mean by hanging weight. Is that before any of...

    Well, were still hanging on...by the Grace Of God...I have no idea how we are holding our heads above water but we are. My husband still has not found gainful employment despite spending several hours each day sending out resumes and attending union meetings. No one is working. That said we have...

    I seem to kill them.... I always have flowering hanging baskets that die. I pick the dead flowers off, only water when the little tag says too...I don't know what the deal is. Are they only meant to last a little while? Am I supposed to repot them when the get all root bound? Any advice would be...

    I live on the Arkansas/Oklahoma border and am a sahm (sort of, I do whatever I can to bring in extra money!). Anyways, I normally hang out all of our laundry during spring, summer, and fall. I try not to run the dryer so as to save money. I've noticed that lately the clothes are not getting...

    Something I just saw in a tip on an email I got: Hang up your laundry on a clotheshorse or line instead of throwing them in the dryer. You will save about 950 kilowatt hours of electricity a year. :laundry:
  16. Utilities
    I have tons of trees where I live so I don't have any sunny place to hang clothes outside and even if I did have a sunny spot there isn't a place where the trees couldn't dump pollen and debris on the clothes so I'm thinking about hanging clothes inside the house. I have some clothes racks I...

    Does anyone else want to hang out clothes but can't because of the pollen? It's sooo frustrating to know I could be saving $'s every month on my electic bill ............. but my allergies won't allow it right now. :nrant: I remember way back hanging out clothes year round and I just can't...
  18. Laundry
    I wanted to start hanging my laundry to save energy (Tightwad Gazette), but our backyard doesn't get any real sunlight because of the trees. Would it still be a good idea to put up a line in the summer? Would the heat (we live in the south) still do the job? Would it take longer? I have been...
