Baking soda, again. Make a lather or use your favorite face cleansing cream, then add a half teaspoon of baking soda and mix it in well. Clean your face with this and rinse well. Your skin will be super clean, but won't feel dry like some exfoliators make it.

When you have potatoes that are not keeping well, save them by partially cooking and then freezing. This works especially well with fries. Cut and bake on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees for about half the cooking time it takes. Or boil, mash and season, then freeze in meal size portions.

Cold and snow and wet weather! Winter is upon us and if you're boots leak or you don't have anything waterproof, here's a cheap way to survive: Put on your socks, slip your feet into bread sacks (double if they're thin) and put on your shoes or boots. Your feet will stay dry.

Are you still eating winter squash from the garden? Besides saving a few seeds to plant next year, save the seeds for snacks! They're all edible; just make them like pumpkin seeds. Clean and soak overnight in salt water, then roast at 250 to 300 degrees until done lightly toasted, two to three hours.
