Cooking Without Recipes by Using Ingredients On Hand?I have been trying to find an article I read, either at this site or another frugal site. It was brilliant. It said you waste money by thinking you have to always use recipes.
Finding Smaller Furniture for an Apartment?Where can I find small scale furniture for an apartment? Furniture stores only seem to have full-size furniture, no tables for two, for example. I am trying to help my mom find a small table with two chairs.
Honey Maid Graham Cracker Chocolate Cake Recipe?There used to be a recipe for chocolate cake on the Honey Maid Graham Cracker crumb box. I think it included a mocha frosting. I would love to have the recipe, if anyone knows of this.

Making an Airline Reservation?I have never made an airline reservation before. I need to get a round trip ticket to New York for my 17 year old daughter to attend a ten day seminar at Columbia University. How do I go about this?

Looking for an Easy to Use Edger?I mow a very large lawn. By the time I am done I am having a hard time getting to the edging around fence, house, and driveway. I have an electric edger and it is a hassle to even get it to the far-off places that need edged.
Cami-Panel Instead of a Camisole?Has anyone tried those panels you attach to your bra straps so that you don't have to wear a cami under a low cut top? Having to wear an extra layer in the summer is hot and a nuisance, plus it is hard to find camisoles that are comfortable and match all my tops.
