I bought an inexpensive watch tool kit from Amazon, plus a huge bunch of batteries. I've never attempted changing my own before, but in my area, replacements are expensive ($10-15 each). I just changed three batteries and the total was $5. I'm thrilled and will save a bundle w/my collection.

I have a battery in weight scale/body fat scale! And I DON'T like having to replace it as one MORE thing on my to-do list!But I have found that writing the date [with a permanent sharpie marker ] on the battery helps me to see when I last replaced the battery! And though it may be a year or so, it SEEMS faster!
When my car door clicker went dead I called the dealer and found it was a hefty $100+ charge to get a new battery- I went to Batteries Plus and they replaced and installed the battery for the cost of the battery! Saved tons of cash!
Buy a battery operated Milk Frother (Ikea has them for about $3) to make your own inexpensive, healthy lattes.
Put about 1/4 cup nonfat milk in a pint glass, heat for 30 seconds in the microwave. Add an envelope of Splenda and froth until its fluffy and takes up about 3/4 of the glass. Add coffee and drink. Yummy!
