    Hi Everyone, I'm getting ready to downsize and sell off things that I am not using. I picked up a bread machine at a garage sale a year ago. I have not used it (it even came with a book). Is it cost effective to use the machine? I often buy good multi-grain bread at Costco - 2 loaves for...

    I am soon to be in the market for a new washing machine, and am slowly saving the money for it. Do you think it is worthwhile to buy a front-loader vs a top-loader? The front-loaders are so much more expensive than the top-loaders, but they use about 2 1/2 times less energy and half as much...

    I got one at a garage sale for $2, but I don't know WHAT TO DO WITH IT!!! I've done a lot of internet research, but haven't found any thing on HOW to use an old manual machine. It's a "Studio SK-101" which was actually made by Singer (in about 1962). It's a long steel apparatus with 200...
