I have one word for this week's Frugal Friday tip... well, actually
two words: RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES!!
If you don't use rechargeable batteries, you don't know what you're missing!! We have been using them for several years now and we have yet to have to replace them. We use them in our computer mouse, my husband's beard trimmer, our portable phones, our remote controls, cameras, a hand held math game, and Karate Kid's remote control vehicles and laser tag guns. We have a battery charger on our kitchen counter which is our 'charging station'. This area of the counter also holds the chargers for our cell phones and Mr. P's walkie talkies. The battery charger is always full and when a battery runs down, you take your used battery, grab a few new ones and replace the new with the old. It's as easy as that!! I can't tell you how much time and money we've saved over the years by not buying batteries! Plus, when batteries run down, we don't have to wait for the next trip to the store to replace old batteries.
