All of these ideas are ingenious, but some of them are ridiculous, and some are just…ewww.

Not only that, but most tomatoes don`t need to be supported - they stay on the vine without a bra or anything else.

So its pretty much just a way to air your old underwear.

A Bugler named Douglas McDougal,
Found ingenuious ways to be frugal,
he learned how to sneeze in various keys,
thus saving the price of a bugle.

These are alright, I guess. But the neighbours might think you`ve gone a bit nutty when they see old bras in the tomato patch...

I`d like to congratulate willowpuff for having the shortest attention span I`ve ever seen. Because not everyone can fall off of a train of thought after two sentences.
<rolling eyes now>

i wouldnt do any of those...theyre pointless. Even the zipper one; use a candle, it lasts longer and doesnt get your fingers or knickers dirty.

You buy the flowers for a perpose. What is the point in reusing them...Its kinda like recycling but far worse.

"Saturate a ballpoint pen stain with milk, and rub it with the cut side of a tomato. Since milk and tomatoes can leave their own stains, soak the whole garment in a mixture of enzymatic laundry detergent and cold water, then launder as usual.“


So... Just wash it as normal?!!?

All of those are all well and good...but you`re still using TONS of product...

just for different crack head uses.

Even if you don`t use moisturizer...you`ll have to buy more mayo.

Ew, really lotion is cheap...borrow a friends maybe? They may appreciate your efforts to NOT SMELL LIKE A SANDWHICH.

I believe that most products nowadays are inferior and serve little purpose,the companies have to manufacture the NEED for their products.

Alot of books like these simply list what people used to do before the "designated product" was invented.

When buying something,think "can I use this for more than ten purposes?" if not don`t buy it because it`s LAZY!

and mayonnaise is just the start,all cleaning products can be replaced with white vinegar and lemon juice.

"Frugal... or just plain cheap?"

You... do know what frugal means, right?

I`ve heard mayonnaise makes for a good masturbatory lubricant. Maybe there`s something to that.

Frugal... or just plain cheap? I mean if you`re serious about moisturizing your face for example wouldn`t you be willing to spend a little extra money to buy a proper moisturizer?

I`ve done the whole crayons trick, I prefer sharpies though, sometimes the color matches better.

I had heard the tomato/bra one before. Also the tea bags on your eyes.
