Product Description

Amazon Review

Here's another fun book from Vicki Lansky, famous for giving her expert advice in the pages of Family Circle Magazine and such classics as Baking Soda: Over 500 Fabulous, Fun, and Frugal Ideas You've Probably Never Heard Of. It takes a certain kind of creative mind to gaze over the common objects of everyday life and figure out ways to re-use and recycle materials as inventively as Lansky, but she is a real pro. Here are just a few of the hundreds of creative uses outlined: Use a waxed milk carton as a charcoal lighter by filling it with charcoal and lighting the box; protect bows on wrapped presents for shipping by covering them with those little plastic berry boxes; use a baster to suck up a dropped egg; use a paintbrush to dust house plants; use carpet scraps under typewriters and printers to muffle the noise; use a bottle cork as a drill stop; use crumpled newspapers to dry freshly washed windows instead of expensive paper towels; use a king- size pillowcase as a cover for baby's changing table; use large rubber bands to keep covers on casseroles and pots transported to a potluck; use old socks on ladder tops to keep them from marring walls. Add hundreds more ideas for everyday household articles and you've got another winner from Vicki Lansky! --Mark A. Hetts --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful?...You Bet! 19 April 2005
By kjmills - Published on
I picked this book up from the library, and now I'm looking for a copy to purchase. I started reading this 143 page book, and by page 15, I knew it was hopeless because I kept finding helpful tips that I had never thought of but that I wanted to remember. However, there was too much, and I couldn't remember any of it, so I decided that I needed to have my own copy for reference. Not everything in it is helpful or applicable to me, and yes, crome does pop up frequently, but there is enough advise that I need to make it well worth it. It's also very diversified in useful utensils and in purposes, so I am sure that this book would prove just as helpful to anyone even if they thought none of the stuff I appreciated helpful and only wanted the advise that I threw aside. I haven't seen the 2004 edition, so that may be even better, I don't know.

4.0 out of 5 stars It Never Dawned on me 30 Mar 2000
By Jen Bochenko - Published on
I picked this up for a new frugal newsletter I've started and most of the things just never dawned on me. It's a complete book listing other uses for common items you probably have around the house from a simple cube of ice to worn out garden hoses. Very helpful for recycling for free. One thing I wondered dawned on the author, almost everything cleans chrome.
