For 20 years, Bruce Lubin and his wife Jeanne have been collecting tips and hints to save time, money, and make everyday tasks easier. Their book "Who Knew?"by TeleBrands includes thousands of money-saving secrets for cooking, cleaning and other tasks around your home.

As you move from room to room, you'll discover how to affordably clean your home using all-natural, homemade cleaners; get rid of any kind of stain on the planet; organize like a whiz; keep your car at its best; and perform simple household repairs. We are republishing a fabulous tip from the book on an easy way to help you tie up your plants.

If you still have old, unused cassette tapes lying around, pull out the tape and use it to tie up your plants. Better yet, try old pantyhose: Just cut the nylons into narrow strips. This works even better than plastic ties because the pantyhose expands as the plant grows.
