(Make sure you dispose of the old oil according to local laws; most gas and service stations will accept your used motor oil.) Use your car manual as a guide for the procedure and you might just find it’s both a lot easier than you thought and a useful skill to have — it’s cheaper than taking your car to Jiffy-Lube (or wherever you go for oil changes).
Make an effort to introduce yourself to your neighbors if you don’t know them very well.
It’s actually a fun challenge – and one that helped us discover an incredible number of free things to do.
If you meet any interesting people in your neighborhood, invite them over for a cup of coffee and a chat, just to get to know each other better.
Your neighbors could not only become your friends, they could also be a valuable resource – a friendly pair of eyes on your property when you’re away or a helpful set of hands when you’re trying to complete a challenging task.
In either case, you’ll declutter by getting rid of stuff you don’t watch, read, or listen to anymore, and possibly earn a bit of money – or at least some shelf space.
Go through your cupboards and find any items that might have slipped to the back over time.
