Homemade Warmers

Money Saving Tip of the Month (featured column)
submitted by Jennine Murphy

I have a tip that saves money in several ways.

*  *  *

First, to help with aches and pains, I put white rice in a cotton sock, tie the end and heat in the microwave. The heat feels great on sore muscles.

Second, I have sewn tubes out of Christmas material and filled these with rice and they have made inexpensive and very popular Christmas presents.

These have gone on to save money a third way in that when the house is chilly in the morning in the early days of fall, but I don't want to turn the furnace on just yet, or when I feel a little chilled in the winter, I heat up a rice sock and put it around my neck. Often this warms me up enough that I don't need to heat up the entire house.
