    [–] Costco return is not unlimited. My local manager said 2 years. K0pp3r 10 points ago in Frugal

    “I bought these tires 20,000 miles ago. They’re just not holding up how’d I’d expect them too. Can I return them?”

    [–] Costco return is not unlimited. My local manager said 2 years. K0pp3r 10 points ago in Frugal

    Returning a router after 7 years is pretty dishonest and a blatant misuse of their generous return policy.

    [–] Frugal and dealing with ants? More traps? Exterminator? K0pp3r 1 points ago in Frugal

    What state do you live in? I had issues with ants last year and called an exterminator. They came out and I wrote down all the chemicals they use and the strengths used. I then ordered the same chemicals off of Amazon and did my own pest control for this year.

    [–] Neighbor gifted me an edger, having carburetor issues, need advice. K0pp3r 1 points ago in smallengines

    The engine number is 143.804082 SER 0108B. Any idea what all those mean?

    Oh man, thank you so much. I think my local place orders OEM parts exclusively through 1 or 2 companies and that’s it. Obviously, there have got to be other places out there with parts. I found an OEM carburetor on M&D and it was around $90. I’m gonna take my chances with the $12 carburetor someone posted. If it blows up I’m not at a huge loss. I did get this for free.

    As for other parts/issues I’d love to figure out how to straighten the blade a little bit. The whole thing is slanted slightly to one side and not right in point. It’s not a huge deal breaker, but something to look at in the future.

    I was able to replace the blade, oil, and filter and spark plug from Lowe’s on the cheap. The replacement belt was ordered from eBay. The goal is to keep this as cheap as possible but still end up with something useable.

    I’m on mobile too so when I find out the engine number I’ll update the post.

    Thanks again for all the great information.

    Last question: I know I can YouTube it, but for someone who’s never done this before, How hard is it really to do?

    [–] Neighbor gifted me an edger, having carburetor issues, need advice. K0pp3r 1 points ago in smallengines

    I’m on it. Replaced the air filter, oil, blade and belt right when I got it... then it started having issues. Just my luck.

    Thanks for the link. Sorry for the beginner question, but if I straight up replace the entire carburetor, do I need a rebuilt kit (or any other extra parts) in addition to the new carburetor?

    [–] [Geek.com] Electrified Urethra Probe w/ 3.5mm audio jack $2.70 (down from $20) K0pp3r 1 points ago in DealsReddit

    Aside from the immediate and audible WTF I just had, what is the point of the 3.5mm audio jack?? I’m so confused...

    [–] Beginner looking for advice as to why my peas look like this? K0pp3r 1 points ago in gardening

    Thank you for the kind advice. When we planted them it was early spring and cool. Michigan is pretty unpredictable when it comes to weather and it cranked up to the 90s real fast.

    [–] Beginner looking for advice as to why my peas look like this? K0pp3r 2 points ago in gardening

    I’m in Michigan and it has been in the 90s the last week, but I’ve been watering them everyday so they don’t dry out.

    [–] Beginner looking for advice as to why my peas look like this? K0pp3r 2 points ago in gardening

    You’d think so by the way it looks. But everything else is doing well. These look dry, but I know they’re getting enough water. My wife and I are at a loss.

    [–] Save tons of money on deodorant by using magnesium milk instead K0pp3r 1 points ago in Frugal

    You can buy deodorant at your local dollar store. It’s not that expensive.

    [–] Cutting your own hair with scissors only (How?) K0pp3r 2 points ago in Frugal

    I’ve been cutting my own hair for 10+ years. I have 2 electric buzzers and a comb and scissors. Don’t use a beard trimmer for the hair on your head. They’re typically not strong enough for that function. Go to Sally Beauty Supply and get yourself a clearanced out buzzer like and Oster or Wahl. My suggestion is to avoid ones that are cordless. They never last as long as the ones with the cord. Watch a few YouTube videos and I’m sure you’ll be fine. Be prepared for a “Plan B haircut” when you screw up give yourself a chop job. No worries, hang in there. I’ve done it a ton of times. Hair grows back. Good luck!

    [–] Buying a Floor Model Mattress? K0pp3r 2 points ago in Frugal

    Former furniture salesperson here.

    When I sold furniture and mattresses, the floor models were the ones that were laid on by EVERYONE. When they got too worn they went to the Clearance Center. I personally purchased a “floor model” Kingsdown. This was when I worked there. The one I purchased had just been placed out on the floor on a Tuesday (non-sale day), then a few hours later the Kingsdown rep came in and had it removed for the brand-new updated models. I watched this mattress taken to the back and placed on a high shelf, too high for guests to sit on. It was tested out maybe 5 times before I bought it. Your situation is probably NOT like this. If it’s a matter of sleeping on a nice floor model vs air mattress or nothing then obviously I’d do it. However, you don’t know where it has been or who’s laid on it. If it sounds too good to be true... I don’t work at the furniture store anymore, and would probably avoid buying a floor model. You’ll keep the mattress 10+ years, treat it like an investment for your health.
