They love the extra nutrients and much cheaper than using fertilizer that is purchased from the store. When times were good we also installed a small koi pond and I constantly use some of the water to take care of my small veggie garden. This cuts down on my water bill and I don't have to buy pricey fertilizers. I also have a compost heap ( it's actually a garbage pail with some holes drilled in it that I put scraps that I don't use for freezing for making a vegetable broth; you know those veggies that got a little to ugly).[/quote:0a7ca455a3]Really brilliant hint, that one about using veggie water as fertilizer!!!! :lol: I second the compost heap (if you have space). We have a plastic pail, and all "wet" waste goes in there ([i:0a7ca455a3]NOT bones or meat of any kind[/i:0a7ca455a3]). An open compost heap, fenced off with some bricks, is fine and will not smell or attract pests.

HOW TO MANAGE YOUR SAVINGSIn total you should have about five bank accounts. 1. Your main bank account should be a chequing account where all the money comes in, and the only account where the money is coming out of on a regular basis. This is the bank account where your pay cheque and any other income you are receiving should be going into. From this account, you will be making monthly deposits into the other four accounts: 2. A savings account for significant future purchases such a down payment for a home, appliances, furniture, or a car.3. A savings account for vacations. A good idea would be to put any kind of money gifts you receive for your birthday or other special occasions into this account. 4. A savings account for emergencies or unexpected costs such as car repairs, medical costs, or if you ever find yourself in a tight financial situation such as between jobs. Try to keep at least six months monthly expenses for emergencies.5. An RRSP- a registered retirement savings plan. Not only will you get a nice little tax cut from it, but by investing that tax cut back into your RRSP you will have initiated a cycle of money-making.Remember, not all savings accounts are alike, so do some research online or visit banks for the best, cheapest or no fee bank account.
