Overview

Save a fortune with over 1,300 easy solutions to hundreds of common household problems.

You don’t have to be rich to live well; now you can outfox the high cost of living the old-fashioned five-and-dime way. Don’t be tempted by all of those “new” products on the shelves; instead, rediscover the power of those time-honored, thrifty household items your grandparents and parents used. You’ll save a bundle with over 1,300 of these clever hints and tips: • A Frisbee is a handy item to keep around the house and can be used as a portable pet dish, paint palette, and paper plate holder • Hair spray is an inexpensive way to preserve flowers, remove pet hair from a couch, kill bugs, and stop static cling • Cedar chips will drive fleas from a pet bed, keep snails at bay in your garden, and repel moths from your wool sweaters • Furniture polish will spiff up hubcaps and bicycles, add shine to shower doors, and stop squeaky door hinges • Glass cleaner will make your jewelry sparkle, relieve bee sting pain, dry out pimples, and shine patent leather shoes • Aluminum foil makes a stunning wrap for a wedding gift, works effectively as a substitute for hair curlers in a pinch, and when placed under your ironing board cover will increase the efficiency of your iron • An ice cream scoop can be used to measure the perfect amount of potting soil, shape butter into fancy shapes for a holiday dinner, and form perfect meatballs and cookies • A pillowcase will dry lettuce in seconds, makes a cute summer dress for a child, covers a baby’s changing pad, and functions as a travel laundry bag • Knitting needles make stylish hair accessories, can serve as kebab holders for a fun fruit snack, function in place of toothpicks to test a cake’s doneness, and can be used to protect your garden from invading critters
