    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...

    A little back story first. My boyfriend and I live in an apartment and our tap water is decent enough to drink but we prefer filtered. We buy cases of Poland Spring water at BJ's Wholesale Club and he takes 2 bottles every day to work with him. He typically only drinks one bottle and then during...

    I don't know if this has been posted before... I stumbled across a blog post this morning showing how to DIY reusable Swiffer cloths.

    I am due to replace my furnace filter and have been thinking about switching to a reusable furnace filter instead of continuing to buy disposable filters. I don't know anyone who uses a reusable filter and most people look at me funny for even considering it (I'd like to try and reduce the...

    If you like using reusable bags but really stink at making them (like I do) Dollar General has them for CHEAP...only $1 for 2 bags. They are decent sized.

    Mods, if there is a better place for this, please move... For a long time now, Safeway grocery store has given a .05 credit for each reusable bag you brought with you. So each trip we would save about a quarter by taking our own bags and not using paper or plastic - and at that, bag boy...

  17. Lifestyle challenges
    I've noticed the most amazing thing since stores have started using reusable bags. The cashiers no longer bag the the food. I watched a woman hand her bags to the cashier and the cashier put them at the end of the counter. She finished the transaction and then started to ring me up. The woman...
