There are still a lot a things I dont
Like why the
"large economy size" actually costs
more per ounce than the small size. I think once
they started showin the price per ounce on
the grocery shelf, it became a game to see if
folks would pay more for the large size even
though the price was posted right in front of
Now bottled water is an
exception to the theory. The little half pint
size water bottles cost within a few cents of the
pint size (actually they are probly only 12
Soda pop is much the same way.
The sixteen ounce bottles they sell up at the
front of the store are near as expensive,
sometimes more expensive than a 2 liter. I
suppose "convenience" always has its

Here's A Tip
By JoAnn Derson
For a little extra
visibility in the basement, try applying
glow-in-the-dark or reflective tape on the edges
of the stairs.
"Peppermint is a
wonderful cure for indigestion. To make a quick
peppermint tea, use a rolling pin to smash three
to four peppermint candies. Add them to a glass
of water and microwave for a minute and a half.
Stir to melt the candies completely, and drink
slowly." -- G.L. in California
Many public libraries
are offering services that youd never
expect. Some libraries will let you reserve books
online, renew your due date or even have books
delivered to your home. Some have regular
seminars on all kinds of topics. Check out your
public library today!
"If you can print
your boarding pass online, do it! It saved us
close to half an hour the last time we flew, and
with security lines being as long as they are,
its time we needed to get to the
terminal." -- I.B. in South Carolina
"It pays to shop
around for prescription drugs. If you dont
have the benefit of a mail-away service (by far
the best deal going), make sure you call around
for prices. The price of prescriptions varies
from pharmacy to pharmacy, day to day, drug to
drug. Always shop around, since you never know
who will have the best deal." -- T.L. in
(One word of caution, though:
Maintain a list of all drugs taken and give a
copy to each pharmacist so he or she can check
for interactions. Also, if you have multiple or
complicated medical issues, it might be to your
benefit to patronize a single pharmacy. That way,
the pharmacist can advise you of any interactions
or complications. -- JoAnn)
