3. Be careful about aspirin, though.

If it gets too old, the chemical composition can alter to the point of being poisonous.

I only discovered this group recently but look forward to learning even more frugal ways. Not wasting is being kind to Mother Earth. It also increases our chances of living a long and healthy life. If I'd ever had the money to drink and smoke and do all sorts of other things, I'd have croaked years ago. It isn't that I don't like spending $; I LOVE it. But I hate wasting a penny. The more I avoid wasting, the more I can spend on useful, needed durable goods. Before retirement I couldn't keep a garden because sometimes I worked 2 jobs. If I only had one job, I was busy looking for a second. But now I can grow a good many of my own fruits and veggies, especially important since GMOs have arrived. I gave up my big van years ago because of the expense of maintaining it, and now I want an ELF so bad it hurts. Seems like it's always something.
