Driving in cold weather? Skip the "warm up." As Ecomodder.com points out, an idling engine gets "zero miles per gallon." (And it's environmentally uncool.) Also recheck your tire inflation as the season cools; air temperature affects tire inflation and you may need a "fill up."

Junk and jetsam, heirlooms and gems — reusing old stuff can be fun

April 5th, 2011

Old boxes can be quaint, but their prices could make you faint.

If you’re seeking one-of-a kind items, the trip to Round Top can be worth it. Take this assemblages of old boxes. Your typical antique shop might have one or two to sell. At Round Top the collections nearly topple off the tables. Dealers save all year (or half a year) for this biannual show. Reuse? These boxes can give modern containment a whole new kitschy appeal. No longer viable for trucking purposes, they’re still practical for home use. (Don’t think this clever idea comes cheaply. Expect to pay $70 to $130 a box.)
