Now here’s a tip

• What’s on sale during the wonderful month of October? Why, fishing gear, women’s coats, appliances and school supplies. You also can still get a good deal on remaining 2007 model cars as the 2008s roll into showrooms.

• “My mother swears by wrapping her feet in a vinegarsoaked rag once a week to soften calluses. She does this before her bath, and uses a pumice stone to rid her heels of hardened spots on the skin. It seems to work for her, so I thought I would pass it on!” – C.D. in Colorado

• “I keep a plastic shoe box filled with writing supplies under the front passenger seat. There are notecards, paper and envelopes, stamps and even a small address book. I can write thank-you letters, pay bills or just keep in touch while I’m waiting in my car to pick up my kids from school.” – T.E. in Michigan

• “After a hard day’s work in the garden, I soak in a rosemary bath. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory, and it smells wonderful. I just add a few sprigs from my plant out back to very hot water, and then let the water sit for a while until it’s just warm. Then I get in. Heaven!” – U.A. in Ohio
