Re: How much cash do you have, carry?

$10 is my average for cash these days. I no longer work and am rarely out of town, so there is much less chance that I'll need more than that or be stuck somewhere without someone to come help. I do keep $20 in the car in case i'm buying gas or something and the cc machine doesn't work, or I left my...

Re: Fabric Softener $olution!!

Re: Fabric Softener $olution!!

That is awesome, Jodi! Our bigger dachshund chews everything she finds on the floor, and we have to vigilant about making sure we do not drop a dryer sheet when pulling the clothes out of the dryer -- she has chewed them up before and that can't be good for her.

WOW! Are you sitting down? I've figured out a way to save a small fortune on fabric softener......I've never come across this idea before. Get a clean spray bottle and add a cap of liquid fabric softener, fill the rest with water. When you put your clothes in the dryer, give the whole load several s...
