I would not buy a personal photo printer. I hate the ripoff prices on the ink cartridges. Where's an ombudsman when you really need one. Aaargh.

If I had to do it all over again, I would buy the inexpensive but sharp Victorinox Forschner knives even though I am ridiculously happy with my three pricey Global knives. I just spent the frightening amount of $39 on three silicone mixing bowls because they are bendable to pour into the stand mixer...

I bought myself the Igallop for $300 and I love it. I don't own any home exercise equipment and it can be argued that this item isn't exactly an exercise machine. It was a big present for myself but there are some things that I would have to be rich to bring myself to purchase. If money were no obje...

I don't get a high from shopping because I have so much psychic baggage from my home life that I really can't enjoy the experience and I have been shopping intensely from Amazon for one year. My acquisitions are tied to independence from retail services for food and sales tax. Amazon has been cheape...

You might cover the kung pao to bake or you might reheat without oil in a small pan. I steam to reheat bulgogi otherwise the gravy will be lost in baking or watered down in boiling. Steam seems to not water it down too much.

Our neighbor planted (maliciously?) a tree by the fire hydrant in front of her house right before she sold it. Two owners later, the tree is huge and drops seeds all over our property as well as buckling the sidewalk. I also suspect that it houses insects that have made their way into our homes. The...

The House Next Door reviews certain television shows every week and their BSG posts have enhanced my viewing experience.

I bought the first season because watching the second season finale made Neil Gaiman's youngest child cry. I liked season 2 which I taped off of the tv much better and they are always reairing both seasons. That was such a painful purchase.

Would it be too extreme to board up your windows from the inside, turn off your water valves, switch off your electrical breakers and lodge your pets offsite? If i were to do a home exchange, i would move garment racks of my clothes to my mother's place as I would hate to go through shopping for new...

I have been using Amazon.com for nearly one year exactly because they offered a $25 back on $125 in kitchen stuff that is now 4 for 3 which if done right is closer to 25% off than the 20% off of the previous deal. Mind you, I hadn't bought any kitchen equipment for 40 years except for pennywisepound...

I bought a couple of penny books used through Amazon and the standard shipping means I actually paid $3.50 for them. I think it would take too long for me to find a buyer for some of them even at a penny so the ones I think will be okay reading, I plan to send to anysoldier.com listed soldiers who a...

From watching Moving Up and Property Ladder on The Learning Channel, it seems that homebuyers often rip out usable rooms and put their own stamp on the place but that sellers maybe out of insecurity and vanity will spruce up the place before selling as if the property is a representation of their pa...

My family does not get along and we contaminate one another. No one including me picks up after themselves in a responsible accurate fashion so each of us resents the others for being a slob when we have to do all the cleaning up for all three of us. Electrical usage is not efficient because some me...

I want to move my ROTH IRA to a higher interest CD with another bank but the current bank does not charge any fees for the IRA whereas the potentially more lucrative bank does. This has stymied me.
