Thrifty Thursday

Thrifty sounds good, doesn't it? People always try to say I'm thrifty or frugal, I always tell them "just say it already, I'm cheap!" What got me thinking of it just now was the temperature in here tonight, it's 63.1!!! I only have the heat set at 60 right now, but since it was a sunny day today, my solar collectors(painted tinfoil) brought it up an extra 3 degrees today. You can't beat that with a stick, well you could, but it would rip the tin foil :) This has been a very cold winter and on the sunny days the solar collectors have made a difference in the house temp, not a drastic one, but anything helps. I won't hesitate to do it again next year, but would like to try to come up with a way to make some external ones that will collect more of the southern sun. If it ever warms up here I can take all my painted tin foil down and take it to the recyclers, it may have only paid $.15 a lb last time I was there, but it's better then nothing. Have any money saving ideas you would like to share?

Stop by my shop and check out some of our vintage books, much better then buying new.  MichellesVarietyShop Vintage Books
