Learn these homesteading tips to help you save time and money.

John Knioca's homesteading tips:

•Clean your windshield of bugs with a single-edge razor blade; buy them 100 to a box.

•Got a critter between the walls? Turn on two or three radios, full volume, and go to town for half a day. When you come back, the creatures will be gone

•Don't bother with soap when you wash a car. It takes the wax off and isn't needed 99 percent of the time.

•Give your body to organ donor organizations or a local university for research. Funeral traditions are not enjoyed by or paid for by the dead. I give flowers to living people, not dead.
