Cheap stuff for frugal living ( add yours )
The biggest tip is GO TO FLEA MARKETS. Yeah, I was at a flea market on Saturday morning and bought 4 brand new Hawaiian shirts for just 3 bucks each. How the vendor was able to sell them so cheap I don't know but perhaps his load of Sears shirts with the $30 dollar tags still on them "fell" out of the back of the truck. Who knows? Oh, and just two vendors away from that guy somebody was selling HUMONGOUS avocados for just a buck each. Of course, that deal didn't beat the 4 avocados for a buck that were selling at another flea market just a few days after Hurricane Katrina blew them off the trees in 2005.

I'm not a troll or anything, just a bleeding heart liberal like you.

2. Big Lots and Dollar stores
Big lots is a hit or miss. Dollar stores are becoming grocery stores, and the stuff is more than a dollar but less than store prices

3. Here's an idea I scoped off a website recently:
http://www.wrap-n-mat.com /

They're washable, reuseable and environmentally friendly. Even more frugal still, for a few bucks worth of materials, the crafty types who've some talent with a needle and thread and whip together their own version.
