My mom gave me this genius idea. Use an inexpensive swim noodle (found at Dollar Tree for one dollar) to insulate outside pipes and faucets. Cut a length of the noodle to fit the pipe or faucet, cut a slit in the side, and slip it over the pipe/faucet. Inexpensive, and works just as good as the more expensive pipe insulation.
I got this tip from Heloise months ago and never tried it until recently. When you buy ground meats, and separate them, push all the air from the ziplock bag and press the meat flat, like a sheet of paper, before closing. Not only does it save SO MUCH SPACE IN THE FREEZER, it literally thaws out within 30 minutes, so if you forget to lay it out in the morning to thaw, you can do it when you get in from work and it thaws while you shower or work out!
