Household uses for more risque items?!?!

Hello frugalfaggots!  In a community like this, I would hope to find information about alternative uses for the more unusual things you might have lying around.  For example, I once fixed a squeeky hinge on my front door with some thick lube.  I didn't last for a long time, but it held me over until I could afford some WD40.  

What about broken sex toys?  Anybody got a use for those?  I have a few that I have been hoping to resurect in some way.

Money Saving Tip #1

Ok I know I've been remiss in posting to the community.

For my first money saving tip, I thought I'd share a neat way to get your groceries and save money too. Shop online at will deliver the groceries to your door in a two hour window. In the year or so I've been using them, I've only had one delivery come late and they called to ask me if I wanted to cancel rather than wait. Overall, I love the service.

Why use

1. I use it for all of my big bulk purchases once a month or so - the heavy stuff nobody likes to carry such as large detergents, cases of soda, etc.

2. You save yourself the gas, wear and tear on your car, and time of going to the store. Time and hassle are really big factors for me in regards to grocery shopping. The Bay Area doesn't seem to have enough grocery stores and they are always packed and crowded. Bleh.

3. I never pay for delivery either - and you shouldn't either. When you sign up for the first time the store will usually give you a certain number of free deliveries. Then just stop shopping at it until they send you coupons in the mail for free delivery or an email for a free delivery.

4. allows you to view all the "discounted" items in their shopping club and all the items that are buy one/get one free or some other form of discount. This feature makes it easy to only buy goods you like when they are on "sale" or discounted in some other fashion. I really like this feature for produce as Safeway is always running produce sales like 10 for a $1.

I've found for most items, using is much better than Costco - especially given the time and expense of getting there. Moreover, is always running specials on bulk items that while not "rockbottom" prices are worth it.
