    Can you still buy those fuzzy covers that people used to put over their toilet tanks? Yes, I know it's not 1965 and these are no longer considered "in", but our water is extremely cold, which creates a serious condensation problem on the tank. Tank covers may not be in style, but they work...

    this idea comes from the book Americas Cheapest Family. For those of us with older toilets... ".....put a filled water bottle (24-32 oz) in the toilet tank. This will save you the equivalent volume of water on each flush. It can result in significant water savings, especially if you have a...

    We went to the local home show this past weekend and asked a few companies what the average life span is for an oil tank they all said between 40-50 years. We are thinking of getting ours replaced since it is around 46 years old. For anyone that has had they tank replaced do you remember how...
