My best frugal tip

PH sent me a funny article about penny-pinchers going nuts with the frugality lately. So I thought I'd share my very best frugal tip, which I learned from Flylady. Don't buy dryer sheets, and don't put the liquid fabric softener in the wash. Instead you pour some liquid fabric on a rag and use that as a dryer sheet. Hey, you can be eco-friendly in spite of yourself, if you do this. And you will use way less liquid fabric softener because you don't have to refresh the cloth every time.

We have those plastic balls with the spikes on them. Just throw a few into the dryer and don't use any softener at all. They work quite well, except that of course there's no scent to them.

Another recommendation: there's a paper towel replacement that you can use to absorb liquid, called a euro-wipe or something like that. They cost about $4 each at a natural foods store. I keep it folded up where my sponge is on the sink and use it to wipe up little puddles instead of pulling out a piece of paper towel. Works great.
