    I used to own hundreds of books when I homeschooled our sons. But after cleaning out my deceased parents’ homes, I decided I needed to downsize whatever I didn’t need, and my kids didn’t want to inherit. I rarely buy a book now, just borrow from the library. If I do buy a new book because I just can’t wait for the library to add it to their collection, I’ll donate it to a library. Not only do I save money, I cut down on the stuff in my house. I’m not really into reading ebooks – much prefer reading on paper. However, ebooks definitely have their place. I’d love if textbooks could all be ebooks (and cheaper).

    I’ve picked songs that remind me of that person. (Mostly Weird Al songs) Makes it a little harder for someone not familiar with the song to figure out the connection.
    “Eat It” for a brother with a large appetite. “I Bought it on Ebay” for a sister who is a hoarder. “Trigger Happy” for my gun owner husband. “White & Nerdy” for my intellectual son.

    Thankfully, that is the exception rather than the rule.

    I replaced my middle name with my maiden name. Then, when I took care of my parents’ business, I used all three. Otherwise, just my first and married name. Less confusing, and also didn’t upset my very traditional in-laws.

    Too bad I’ve seen some fat people who like to wear horizontal stripes. Don’t need to make it look worse than it is, people!

    Agreed. Most “save the environment” just uses a different resource. Trees are renewable. However, one does need to consider which will save money in the long run.
    Using newspaper as TP only works well with outhouses – will clog the plumbing otherwise. Using TP that is too thin, only makes one have to use a lot more to get the job done. I scrimp in a lot areas, but TP isn’t one of those!

    At least my husband now feels no obligation to go shopping with me when I ask if he wants to come with me. I never wanted him to feel unwanted, but shopping is one thing I prefer to do by myself. The only time I really want someone to come with me, is if I need to buy something for them, and need help picking it out. (Clothing, snacks, etc.) After several months of not being able to shop by myself, due to health issues, I was “tickled pink” when I got well enough to go all by myself once again.

    I’ve eaten a few Pop-Tarts, and prefer the unfrosted fruit ones, way too much sugar with frosting added. They don’t taste very good cold. However, after I read the calorie count, decided it was a treat I could live without.

    I like the pizza flavored Pop-Tart idea. Hate cold pizza, but even a cheese pizza tart that could be quickly toasted sounds good for a quick meal.

    I agree with your dad & uncle. Sometimes a person needs a “wake-up call” before they’ll change their ways.

    Must be some thick napkins! Grease and liquids usually soak all the way through. However, around our house (when it is just family) we use hand towels for cloth napkins, and wash them occasionally. Paper towels if we want disposable.
