My mother who is in her eighties is the plastic spring clothes peg queen. She always has some in her kitchen for closing bags for in her pantry and her freezer. Easy for an older person to put on and remove. They are sturdy and easy to obtain.

Something I've been doing lately, you guys probably already know this, is using milk powder instead of bottled milk its way cheaper. 1kg pack is about $11 and makes 10 liters of milk. Saves going to the shop all the time as I never used to come out with just the milk I went in for!

I stopped using rinse aid in my dishwasher years ago because of the expense. Will give the white vinegar a try, and bulldog clips for keeping bags and packets closed is a great idea! Large bulldog clips would work well on bags of seed raising mix etc.

Yes, I use the bulldog clips for keeping bags and packets closed too. They are much sturdier than the plastic clips and are definitely less expensive. I noticed that Tony posted to use white vinegar rather than the expensive rinse aid in your works, things come out just spotless, and the dishwasher interior stays much cleaner with no leftover residue.

hi another good thing for your daughter to practice is a torn sheat made into pillowcases

LOL Lynda, I don't need spotless, though lint bugs my Virgo sensibilities, I just need to be able to see through them.
Right now my south windows are turning into my plant area until the lights go into the basement. I will be doing my indoor veg in the basement so that I can water without concern for flooring.

Newspapers for window cleaning is no longer satisfactory as the type of ink used has changed. I use an Enjo cloth, spray with water, scrub with cloth, scrap/wipe with rubber edged window wiper. Expensive outlay, but well worth it if streakless windows are your thing!

I love the industrial paper clips! They come in several sizes if you go to an office supply store.
