This service is great for first time home owners or newly weds. You'll be amazed just how much of your home you can get for free.

A Bachelor Perspective on Cutting Costs without Cutting Quality or Comfort

by Tony Marren
(Provo,Utah)

I use cleaning supplies from Dollar stores now to assure my residence is kept
maintained. Since I used a formulation of 1 cup bleach to two gallons hot water
to mop kitchen and bathroom floors the rates of flu and colds have dropped.
I refuse to use paper towels anymore due to my desire to help the environment. I
bought 1 dozen hand sized towels from a clearance area in a department store and utilized them as cleaning a counter is needed.Trimming the water bill down was accomplished via installing Peerless brand low flow shower heads.My water bill is now $10-$15 a month. Since I installed flourescent light bulbs my electricity bill dropped 20%.

i have tried a few or these sites myself not these two though so they may be different. But I found that they wanted be to refer other people etc to get the points so it was a little like MLM.

But as I say these may be different and if you don't mind giving away your email address and then possibly receiving lots of spam in the future, it is a way to get things for free.

Little bits can go a long way

by Sandy Prater
(Georgia, USA)

Ever got down to that last little bit of cereal or chips and couldn't figure out what to do with them? Not enough to enjoy by themselves, these little bits and pieces usually just end up crumpled and tossed into the trashcan.

Instead, you'd be surprised how both can be incorportated into everyday meals.

Sugary treats - Coco sweetened cereal, leftover cookie crumbles, fruity loops or bits...all of these can be saved in small plastic containers and then be incorporated at a later date for ice cream or yogurt toppings. In fact, a lot of name brands are putting out yogurt with crumbled up bits of Oreo or granola. And that wonderful Mexican fried ice cream you've experienced a time or two? Yep...that's right. A lot of restaurants skip the frying altogether and just roll a hard scoop of vanilla in some crushed cinnamon cereal. Save separately (if you have a couple of favorites) or mix together (if the flavors complement).

Savory goodness - My favorite cereal happens to be original flavored sunchips. I love having a handful tossed into my lunchbag. When I get to the crumbles at the bottom, instead of throwing them away, I crumble and incorporate them into a meatloaf. Breadcrumbs make up any difference, and the finished product is delicious. A friend of mine does the same with her tortilla chip leftovers and ends up making a Mexican meatloaf. Just be aware that using salted chips will require you cut or omit salt from your recipe. The cereals aren't left out of this one either. My grandmother use to make oven baked "fried" chicken using crushed up corn flakes. I didn't have a chance to get the recipe from her before she passed, but the internet is full of corn flake chicken dish ideas.

Bon Apetit!
