We've probably all got a stack of newspaper around somewhere that needs to go to the recyclers. Before you dump them off, use what you can to dry windows and polish chrome anywhere. Newspaper will even make your car shine. Use it on any metal or glass surface.

See an apple tree no one has tended to? Ask if you can pick the apples. It's too late for plums, but there may be pears available still. Go for a walk around your neighborhood and keep your eyes open. There's free food out there. Go get it.

If you're looking for a new (used) car, go near the end of the month. Salesmen try to fill a certain quota before the end of the month, and if they haven't filled it, they'll make better deals.

All lotions and creams are emulsions - that is, they are oil and water together in one product. Creams and thick lotions, although they might be more expensive to buy, are much more frugal to use if you do it this way: Put a tiny dab in the palm of your hand, then mix it with a drop of water. It will break down into lotion. Only do as much as you use at one time.
