Keep Deer AwayPouring or spraying a “rotten egg” cocktail around your plants will keep deer from eating them. Just mix six raw eggs in two gallons of water and let it sit outside for a week. The smell will keep Bambi at bay
Sounds like the smell might keep everyone away – just saying

just-ask
Special Promotions - They are magic words when ordering catalog items over the phone. Be sure to ask many times if there are special offers such as discounts, free shipping (I hate paying for shipping). At times the operator has been instructed not to mention these specials unless the customer asks. So Be sure to ask, ‘Nothing ventured Nothing gained’.

Not Just For DishesUse about a teaspoon of liquid dish soap in your top-loading washing machine to clean your clothes. Its cheaper with fewer chemicals.

Make your ownI am A Google fan big time – go to Google to get the recipes for all detergent. The most common ingredients are usually Borax and Fels-naptha soap. A batch will cost you pennies in the dollar and worth the effort.

Pot scrubbersNow I am sure most of you reading this will probably think “I don’t think so”. But if you are in a situation that you are struggling financially and every dollar counts, (watching Varney on Fox tells me that there are hundreds of thousands in this position) this is a great idea. Dont go buying the steel wool pads or any pot scrubbers just save the plastic mesh bags you get with your fruit and veg’s. Remove the labels and staples and tie in a knot, does a great job.

Save Your Shoes – Moisture from perspiration or mud puddles is tougher on the leather than pounding the pavement. If shoes get wet, stuff crumpled newspaper into them to wick up moisture. Another suggestion is to put a charcoal briquette into a sock and put that in the shoe overnight to both absorb wetness and eliminate odor. 

I am a great fan of natural lemon grass  oil.  Put a few drops of lemon grass oil on the crumpled paper or the charcoal briquette that you put into the shoe. This oil will give the shoe that nice fresh smell and help take away that sweaty moldy smell.
