Top frugal practice: try not to buy anything :lol: Car are 10 and 5 years old and will both have to make it to 20. I never have felt a 'need' for a new one. My last one before ...

The concept of having trash picked up more than once a week intrigues me, we've never, in 4 OK cities and one rural county address, and I never had it in the 2 other states I've lived in since adulthood.

8 of 17... 47% The deck is 95% done. We still have to do the skirting. Trex makes a "lattice" that will work with the rest of the coloration so we'll have to figure out, at the different elevations and corresponding slope of the yard, which size panels work best where. But the heat index is presentl...
