    Does anyone know if adding a few drops (or more?) of tea tree oil to regular shampoo would make a product similar to tea tree oil shampoo? I really like the stuff, but it's SO expensive!! Thought I'd ask here before trying it. TIA! :)

    Seriously. I'm trying to cut costs, so I'm using the one oil lamp we own and am trying to keep all lights/electricity to a minimum. I pre-warned my daughters that we'll be using an oil lamp this evening and they are to play together with one light on (electric) in the room. I haven't yet...
  9. Calculations and Alternatives
    Just wondering...:confused: Is it cheaper to light a house for two adults/two children with oil lamps (and what kinds or oil and lamps) than to use electric? Has anyone figured out a formula for such based on the price of electricity per kilowatt hour? Or, is it more cost effective to switch to...

    I love to eat deep fried fish but the problem is all the leftover oil. I know you can strain it and use it again, but I don't use it often enough and I don't know, it seems like it would spoil? I'm thinking maybe I wouldn't re-use it for 2-3 months. My question is: What do you do with all your...

    Any Longer? Think some oil CEO's would be unhappy? I'd like to make them all very unhappy right now. I'd like a car, and a home fueled by water, just get me some water cisterns. I wonder how much one of these cars would cost? Car that runs on nothing but water unveiled in Japan. No gasoline...

    Just heard that oil hit the $120 mark this morning because of the unrest in Libya and the entire Middle East and North Africa. (It seems that Libya has one of the highest oil reserves in the world. We also heard something yesterday on our news that we have gas stations that belong to the Libyan...

    We were almost out of oil, so I just had to pay $479.85 for the minimum delivery (150 gallons) - and we are moving in two weeks! So frustrating! Do you think I can ask the landlord/ new tenants to reimburse me for the oil left in the tank? Or would they think I'm nuts? I may decide it's...

    what will you be doing now to prepare for the increase of gasoline prices? When gasoline went up to $5 a gallon in my area, I wasn't prepared. Gasoline kept going and going until it was out of control. So, I understand that crude oil is going up. I want to be prepared this time and budget...

    You probably don't remember but last year after I bought my house I totally underestimated how much heating oil was going to cost me and I was freaking out about it. So what I did was last Spring after receiving my income tax check I put $1,000 in an ING account and $25 a week into that ING...
