I didn't discover it, but I use it all the time: a pumice stone. It really gets the toilet bowl sparkling! I pretty much just use white vinegar and baking soda for everything else.

What's an easy, eco-friendly habit that could help families save money?

Anisa Schell

Line drying clothes. Electric clothes dryers are the second biggest energy consumers in the home (after the fridge). If everyone line dried clothes, not only would you see a substantial financial savings on your energy bill, but we'd be consuming a whole lot less of our precious resources to better the environment!

Please share a link to a photo of the most organized space in your house -- whether it's a closet, drawer, toy shelf, etc.

I organized my boys' closet and I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. It really makes the most of the shared space, leaving them more room to play, and me more sane. http://lazyhomesteader.com/2011/03/15/20-weeks-the-boys-closet-cleaned/
