Walk of Fame implant Book Nook News by Linda Denton Bath County Memorial Library If ever there was a time to save money, this is it. The question is, how. One answer to that will lead to a little simple research on your part. Go to the grocery and comparative shop. How much will it cost you to buy the ingre- dients to prepare your own nutritious "from scratch" meals as com- pared to what it will cost to buy them ready- to-eat or to get them at a restaurant? Another question is what can you do for yourself that you might have hired some- body to do in the past? Those are just a couple of examples, but there are all kinds of authors with their own answers to be found at your local library. Many of those an- swers can be explored in the New York Times bestseller, Haley's Hints with its "more than 2-thousand of the most extraordinary money and timesaving tips for ordinary house- hold items at your fin- gertips." There are recipes, laundry, and sewing tips...plumbing, painting, carpentry, 59. X signifies this 47.

The advice begins on page 64, but there are lots of food tips pre- ceding that. Is there something you need to know that will save you money on shoes? Prob- ably plenty check it out on page 326. There are lots more, but you get the drift. Deborah S. Tukua has her own take on a lot of this in Pearls of Country Wisdom - Hints from a Small Town on Keeping Garden and Home. This one focuses on a natural lifestyle with ideas from the author's Tennessee neighbors, who include farmers, herbalists, and shopkeepers, among others. Some tips in- volve finding new uses for things you might otherwise throw away, like the plastic scoops that come in laundry detergents. She even has a use for those ap- ple peelings you might otherwise toss, and a suggestion for preserv- ing food outdoors dr- ing power outages (the efficacy of which would, of course, depend on the outdoor temperature). With Homemade - 702 Ways to Save Money and the Earth, Readers' Di- gest guides you through green cleaning prod- ucts...economical health & beauty products... cheaper and healthier recipes for grocery-store items,..simple non-tox- ic garden solutions... and wholesome recipes for pet foods and sup- plies...to name just a few of the things you'll find here.. This isn't about going out and buying new products, it's about "making your own, fast, fresh, and more naturally," and that includes recipes to fit your family's fancies. So, along with things like antipasto, home- made bread, and vari- ous kinds of chutney, and such; you'll find recipes for an oatmeal bath for hives...an anti- itch wrap...a cleansing liquid for acne...a sooth- ing tea for heartburn...a lemon settler for motion sickness...baby- fresh cat litter, a fragrant flea treatment...a rose- mary shaving soap for men...no-fuss furniture polish...and a drain opener...to name just a few. The next author is probably familiar to ev- ery generation for the last 50 years because the brand started with her mother; she has very successfully carried on. The tried and true fa- vorite started, I think, as Hints from Heloise. The current version is In the Kitchen with He- loise. There are recipes throughout, along with Heloise Hints... Kitch- eneering Humor...and Reader Recommenda- tions on things like shopping, cleaning, and storing. A more in-depth way of doing a lot of these things can be found in Martha Stewart's Home- keeping Handbook - Listen The Essential Guide to Caring for Everything. in Your Home. Mar- tha is not one to leave any stone unturned and, as far as I can tell, she's big on perfection, whatever the genre into which she delves, so you can be pretty sure, that if you follow her direc- tions, it (whatever it is) will be done to the Nth- degree and done right. Finally, Joey Green's Amazing Kitchen Cures, 1,150 Ways to Prevent and Cure Common Ail- ments with Brand- Name Products may have some money-sav- ing tips but I don't know how your doctor will feel about them. What kind of "ache'; can meat tenderizer cure? How can you end insomnia, soothe aching feet, ar- rest acne, or get rid of a headache, among many other things? The au- thor has suggestions for all of that and more, including remedies for iii hiccups, sunburn, dry skin & windburn, dan- druff, coughs, cholester- ol, calluses, and such. You may want to check them out with your own health care provider, or, since medical experts seem to differ on things like this, with more than one medically knowl- edgeable source. Pay a visit to your lo- cal library and learn to do things just as effec- tively, but a lot more inexpensively. The in- formation is there and free for the gleaning. Making use of it is up to you.
