Getting Old Stainless or Copper Pots and Pans Shining Clean Again

If you have some beautiful old pots and pans that you just can't get clean (and wanting to stay frugal - you want to save them!) then try Barkeeper's Friend. At the store where I work, we sell a few bottles of it everyday, and it literally gets most types of pots and pans gleaming clean again. It's available in both a powdered form and in a paste.

It's also a great way to 'deep clean' your stainless steel sink once in a while, because it's stunning how good a job it does.

Do any grocery stores DOUBLE Coupons in Canada?

Doubling coupons in Canada.

This is much more a QUESTION than a posting. :) I would love to hear from any of you in Canada, if you know of ANY grocery stores that double grocery coupons. Do you know of any stores at all that do this? Please email me at christina@happyslob.com if you know of any.

I'd also like to hear about stores in the US that doubles grocery coupons. I think it's much more common a practice in the US, but I still want to hear from you guys about this!

Recycle those Glass and Plastic Bottles - And Earn a Little Money

Earn a little money by recycling glass or plastic pop or beverage bottles. Cans are also a great way to earn a little extra money. This is a great tip for kids - work at gathering cans and bottles to earn some extra money. Yes, it definitely takes work, but you'd be surprised at how quickly those cents add up to dollars!
