Save Money on Shaving with These Razor Tricks – Wisebread has a great article this week on keeping your razor in good shape longer. Lots of neat little tips. I need to try keeping blades oiled and see what happens.

How to Cook with Under a Buck: A Talk with the 99-Cent Chef – At first, I thought it was 99 cents for the whole meal, but it’s 99 cent ingredients. It’s a little more painful than I would like to try, but it’s a good read with some good links.

Can You Live Without a Car? – A neat little treatment on what life would be like sans automobile. The part I like is the bicycling. I love my little bicycle. No lie!

20 cheap and fun date ideas – Of all these, I think I like bicycling and stargazing the best.

Steel cut oats in the crock potThe greenest dollar has a great article on making steel cut oats in the crock pot. Since I am working alot of mornings now, and don’t have the same kind of time off anymore, I needed a way to get my oat on, without watching the pot for half an hour. I have not tried this yet, but I will be putting my oats on the pot in about an hour. I’ll let you know how they go!

Even better yet, he uses a kill-a-watt to measure the power consumption in cooking the oats. No spoilers here, go read the article.

What is TimeBanking – This was sent over to me by jillian. This is is a great idea. The gist is, you do something for someone (paint their fence, fix their computer, etc.) and in return, someone does an hour of work for you. I would TOTALLY do this! This is the best!
