Now here’s a tip

• Go Green Tip: Caulk and weatherstrip around windows and doors that leak air. As Dad used to say, “We aren’t paying to aircondition the outdoors!”

• “When I know I will need to make an appointment for a doctor’s or other visit in the future and can’t make it right away, I write the details on a small sticky note and put it in my checkbook register. I note the earliest date I can make the appointment and when it should take place. As I am reconciling my checking account, I look at the notes and see if there are any events coming up that I need to make appointments for. I feel like I am ahead of the curve.” — D.C. in West Virginia

• “With my photo album and supplies I keep a small pack of plain stickers. I note all the people in the picture, the date and other pertinent details, and stick the sticker on the back. It keeps ink from bleeding through.” — B.M. in Nevada

• “I just wanted to give three cheers for microchipping pets. I lost my beloved spaniel Daisy last week, and she was found and returned to me because the very smart person who found her took her to a local vet, who was able to get the microchip information. The company notified me where my baby was, and all is well.” — N.R. in Florida
