    Yes or No
    No. But I receive a bundle of advertising flyers along with the newspaper, particularly on Thursdays and Friday.


    Do you read all the advertising flyers and junk mail that arrives at your door?

    No. I have a sign saying "No junk mail" and still it come through the letterbox and into the recycling bin.


    Do you recycle as much as you should?

    Yes. Around 80% of the stuff that I throw out go into the recycling bin.
    Our city provides each house with two bins, a black one for garbage and a blue one for recycling.
    Canadians hold the dubious distinction that they generate more garbage per capita than anyone else.


    Do you try to mend broken gear, instead of throwing it out and buying new stuff?

    Yes, always and it's not through penny pinching I like mending stuff.



    Have you been extravagant?

    Sometimes, but not very often. I like to keep my running household costs down, so I penny pinch quite a bit, but when I buy things that ought to last for many years, such as appliances, electronics and furnishings, then I typically spend considerably more than I could have, in order to get good stuff.


    Do you have a home workshop or workbench?

    Yes because (so Mrs snillys says) we need one for the dogs and one for the house???



    Do you keep your car clean?

    Sometimes. I vacuum it out on occasion, and also wash it.


    Does your home have a built in central-vac system?
