Dear Mary: In tracking our expenses, I've found that the category I call "Household Supplies" represents a massive leak in our budget. What is the least expensive way to purchase trash bags, dishwasher detergent, toilet tissue and other household supplies? — Andrea, e-mail Dear Andrea: Never pay full retail price for the products you mention. When not on sale, these items are the most expensive at the supermarket. However, everything you mention comes on sale ... [full story]

Dear Mary: My husband receives calls from debt collectors looking for relatives who have fallen behind on payments. These callers don't harass us or seek money from us, but they are nuisances. This has happened with at least three different relatives. None of them ever has lived with us. How do the lenders find us? — Erika T., e-mail Dear Erika: You know when you go to the doctor or other care provider and they ... [full story]

Twenty years to the day after electrochemists Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann breathlessly announced their discovery of "cold fusion," only to have the whole thing metaphorically blow up in their faces, another team of scientists says it has documented evidence of "low energy nuclear reactions," or LENR, that could, in time, mean a virtually free, endless supply of energy — the power of stars from a tabletop device.   Corn or maize was developed by indigenous ...

Does your sweet child have a TV in the bedroom? Get it out. Recycle responsibly. Studies show that kids who have TVs in their bedroom score lower on tests, watch nine hours more of TV a week and are more likely to have sleep problems. And don't stop there. In a big healthy lifestyle story that got small notice last December, researchers for the National Institutes of Health working with a nonprofit advocacy group called ... [full story]

In 2001, national newscasts gave accounts of Devin Batts in Jacksonville, Fla., the 10-year-old girl who was lying on her bed, listening to the radio when a sheriff's department police dog suddenly leaped in and attacked her. A burglar-alarm company had given the K-9 unit a wrong address. Most reports minimized the wrong-address factor and criticized the Jacksonville police-dog policy that reportedly trained the dogs to "detect and hold by biting" rather than "detect and ...

Q: As she raised me during the Great Depression, my mother taught me how to get things done. Today, I feel more challenged than ever to handle simple tasks like returning unwanted merchandise.

A: One suggestion for successfully returning merchandise is to quickly evaluate the attitude of the store ... [full story]

Q: Our close friends recently lost their 22-year-old son in an automobile accident. My husband tells me that the father has expressed strong guilt feelings because he had never been affectionate with his son. He also said he was sorry he had never told his son he loved him. The father said he was using the same parenting techniques his father used to raise him. He believed sons should grow up to be strong emotionally ... [full story]

Q: Now that the children have children who come to visit, we realize how cramped and inhospitable our old kitchen/breakfast room is. We are thinking about taking down the wall between the dining room and the kitchen, but that's a pretty bold move. Do we really want everyone in the kitchen at once, much as we love the grandchildren?   Where there was a wall, there's now a way cool open kitchen/great room space for entertaining. ... [full story]

If, either on the recommendation of your financial advisor or your own common sense, you are thinking of cutting up your credit cards, it would probably be wise to do so — unless they expired a long time ago and were issued by a defunct company or are of collectible interest for some other reason. The credit card is a relatively recent term; before that they were known as charge plates or coins. These were ... [full story]
