    Hi, everyone! I have a 1-gallon small-mouth (approx. 1.5" in diameter) glass jug that our apple juice came in and I want to re-use/re-purpose it if I can. I saw an FV thread from 2008 on glass jugs, but all those posts were about wide-mouth jars/jugs. Any ideas you can give me would be great...

    Since I have started back to school, I have decided to update my wardrobe. I stopped by a local church and they were having a clothes give-away. I cleaned up(I also donate back to this church and several organization with the clothes, purse, shoes, that I do not wear any more). 6 blouses, 4...

    Stumbled upon this by accident BUT its pretty cool to know that we can recycle the used filters vs chucking them into the landfill. The bonus is that its free shipping if you're recycling from Canada!! FILTERFORGOOD | Recycle Your Brita® Pitcher Filter

    And what triggered your personal green/frugal journey? I started out many years ago clipping coupons and shopping frugally because that was how I was raised. When I got married and started having children frugal shopping was necessary for a balanced budget. The small city that we lived in...

    Our city has just switched to an automated recycle pickup system. Along with this new system comes an option for residents to set up a recycle bank account which will earn you reward points for every time the city picks up your recyclebles. With these reward points you can turn them in for gift...
  6. Question and Answer
    Not sure if this is the right place for this, because there is probably no right answer. I've been reading these boards for awhile and it's just something I noticed. I noticed many FVers talk about decluttering and there's all those tallies on people's signatures of items they've gotten rid...

    Hi All! I recently came upon the website redo.org. It's a great site with a list by state of Re-use and Recycle centers. I found one by my house that seems to have a lot of great prices on stuff. We need new exterior doors and a couple windows still need replaced. Has anyone ever used one...

    Every few months or so I end up with a big ol' bag of clothes to donate. In a way I hate doing that, as I see it as 'scrap' cloth I could use... but I can't justify having hoards of clothing waiting for "something, someday." What do you turn your old clothes into? Most of the clothes I have...

    We used to donate our glass bottles to the local college, which had glass blowing classes, for example. I'm looking for unusual places/ways to recycle things, something that I might not have thought of? My new "best" thing is that now DH has a huge plastic jerry can he puts used oil in. We've...

    I’m pretty frugal and don’t get my entertainment from hanging out in stores. Actually, I generally hate shopping except on the rare occasions when there is something I really want that I’m excited about. I can shop online for most stuff and save myself a lot of headache and time. Because I don’t...

    This past year has been all about changes, some good and a lot not so good. We’ve ridden the gas price roller coaster and held our breath to see the first African American President get elected. Some have cried over the bouncing stock market and some have jumped on board and bought cheap, hoping...

    Or "The Life of a Sheet"! So this is really quite simple, but you know, I am just so cheap... One year I picked up this queen size top sheet from a garage sale for $2. We have a house with lots of archways and not many doors. Come December I'd hang it over one of the archways to block it off...

    Hi there! I am trying to put together a neighbourhood Recycle Jam, pat of which would be some cool repurposing exercises that take things that might normally go into landfill and use them either purposefully or decoratively or both. I have some ideas for web-research but if anyone here has any...

    I found an article from weather.com (of all places) that about recycling. Greebo will post the link for me (since I'm still a lurking a bit too much)...
