IStillPickUpPennies said: This may sound silly to some, but I used to use a TV Tuner card to record most of my TV entertainment. Then I went through the recordings and edited out the commercials.
Instead, now I just wait and get the season DVD's for free from the local library. If I can't get through all of the episodes before it has to go back, I can archive the remaining episodes on the hard drive, and we delete them as we watch them.
It saves me a heck of a lot of time, and doesn't cost anything extra. No more playing around with tuner card software, missing an episode, etc. Plus, they can't cancel the show on you in the middle of the season if you are getting them a full season at a time, after the fact. I do that, plus We have Netflix, so we watch past seasons of shows with no commercials whenever we want , vs the network schedule. Occassionally we watch a current season like GRIMM and its so painful to sit though commercials knowing my life is ticking away....
What about having two laundry baskets, one for underwear and the other for everything else. I do wash them separately anyway.
I plan to do this, since I like the idea of maybe spending a few more seconds every day to dump your clothes into different baskets, as opposed to spending a few more minutes sorting them out before washing. What do you (if you do laundry on your own) think?

bytem3 said: Wash everything in the same load. Yup. While "batching" it away from home on a long term assignment, everything went into the washer or hung up for a 2nd wear as it was taken off. When the washer looked suitably full, a quarter cup of Tide and away it went. Sheets and pillow cases went through with jammies. Reds, blues, greens, black, whites... it all came out just fine. I wouldn't do it with a nice white dress shirt, but for casual business wear, it worked swimmingly.
I fill my car up at Costco Gas Pumps, but they are notoriously crowded during normal hours(forget the weekends). Sometimes traffic is backed all the way up to the entrance and you cannot even enter the Pump lanes.
The pumps close an hour after the store, so during the week I swing by after 9pm and usually pull right up versus a 10-15 min wait earlier in the day. sounds like aBuc-ee's
