We're totally off topic here, but I had to toss in that I don't buy into the Global Warming hype, so I won't subject my family to the stupid screwy lightbulbs anyway. They may save money in the long run, but to me, with hubby affected by the light and any chance that we could be harmed with the mercury in the bulbs - not worth the chance!
Other than that, please keep the ideas coming all! We're not going to be starving with my paycut; we're not looking for extreme ideas. Just simple things we can do to cut back a bit. And I've gotten some excellent ideas from you all!! Thank you!
