The Simple Dollar Bill Test For Energy Efficiency

To see if the seals on your refrigerator and freezer doors are working properly, do the simple dollar bill test: Close the door onto a dollar bill and see how much effort it takes to pull it out. If it comes out easily, the gasket (rubber seal) isn’t tight enough and is leaking cold air. It needs to be replaced!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
