I find that buying them at the thrift store is much more cost effective. I always find my cloth napkins there for 10 cents a piece or in a set of 6 for 50 cents. No one ever wants them and they always have a lot, sometimes they even have really nice ones that are embroidered.

It’s one of my biggest pet peeves: I’m listening to a record, my favorite song comes on, and about halfway through… it skips. Read more »

Hi Julia -- Glad to see you're playing vinyl LPs. I wash mine much like you might wash dishes, under running warm water and with a dishcloth, using a gentle circular motion. After a good rinse, they're in the rack to dry overnight. If tried several other techniques, but that seems to work the best because it gets rid of both dust and greasy fingerprints. This will also take care of mold, although for a serious fungal issue, you'll have to resort to a mild bleach solution. Experiment on a less-treasured LP first. But you really need to replace that toy record player with a real turntable, a stereo amp and a good set of bookshelf speakers. I know it'll mean a cash outlay, but maybe with a good used amp and a new table and speakers , you might be able to get a first-rate stereo for $400 or so that will last you for decades.

I love this idea! I've been debating purchasing tote bags to start using as opposed to paper or plastic, but many are really pricy. Definitely will do this instead! http://lostindreamland8.blogspot.com/

A thought - - screw an eyelet (avail at any hardware store) into wood. secure beneath with bolt. Tie ropes through eyelet and knot. Depending on how heavy the plant is -- may or may not need this extra security. or, drill small hole through wood and create extra large knot below to secure. Extra strength with glue.
