Frugal Tip of the Day

I read yesterday that if your printer is out of ink to try setting it to the “photo” option (just be careful to resize). I just tried this. I have no idea why, but I just got five shipping labels out of what I thought was a completely empty cartridge. I love tips like this all the time, but I love them even more as we near the end of the month and the end of the checking account.

I like to think we’re pretty frugal(die-hard Tightwad Gazette fan here), but I’m always open to new tips. Anyone have anything unusual to share? I draw the line at knitting with dog hair (though, I could probably make some amazing blankets) or recycling toe-nails. Beyond that – I’ll give anything a try.
