APPLIANCE HINTS

Here are hints to make your appliances last as long as possible:

ADDRESS LABELS

Through the years, I've received a multitude of (preprinted) return-address labels with my name and address on them, some from unsolicited sources and others from organizations of which I'm a member. I wondered what to do with them all. I make personal cards out of them (business-card size). I've given out many to people who ask for my name and address. The cards didn't cost me anything but time. - George Kropp, Rancho Cordova, Calif.
