Dear Heloisc: A recent conversation with a working mother revealed her monthly grocery bill Is approximately $300 to my $150. Our Families arc the same size, and from what I've seen, we eab much better than they do. Here are some of the favorite ways that I save: Our freezer saves an average of $15 per month. Electricity costs $2 to $3 per month, but I save on less frequent emergency trips to the store. I buy 25-pound sacks of flour when they're on sale. Do most of my own baking from scratch. We- love rolls of all kinds and always have them in the freezer. Homemade rolls are less costly than those from the store. Leftover meat and gravy go nto the frezer. When I have about two or three cups, it is ground with equal amounts of ·aw potato and onion for baked lash. With a vegetable salad and some of my homemade rolls, my family feels pampered! Our favorite brand of corn and beans were on sale yesterday for 5 for $1 - regularly 29 to 31 cents a can. I bought a case of each - saving nearly $5. Beef is purchased by the side, and we buy U.S. Good. We can tind no discernible difference in the taste or tenderness, but do find it considerably less expensive. I buy bacon ends at four pounds for $1 or so. The more regular pieces are used as usual for better sliced bacon. Have you priced imitation blueberry syrup at the store lately? I bought some blueberries at three pints f o r $1 lo put in the freezer. Some are thawed and tossed into batter for delicious pancakes; some are boiled with sugar and water for blueberry-flavored syrup. (Any leftover pancake batter is never thrown out - I use it as a dip for French frying.) I almost cry when I think of all the good chicken and turkey bones I've tossed out. I was only recently inspired to try making soup. A small turkey carcass, stripped of Us meat for snadwiches, looked pretty bare - but I put it in the pressure cooker with water to cover and a few rather wiltec vegetables from the fridge, a bay leaf and seasoning, and the results are far better than any I've bught in a can. It's unbe lievable how much meat anc flavor was gotten from those bare-looking bones! This is enough for a starter Also want to thank you for so many helps in the past. Mrs. B. ...and you say this Js enough for a starter? But all kidding aside, many housewives who do not work outside feel they are not doing their share - but they really are - and in more ways than me. Any "savings" they earn las a fringe benefit - because t's tax-free! God bless all the womenfolk who do their very best to cope with everyday problems. This s what this heah ol' column is all about - to share and pass on any "helps," from one to :he other. Heloise Dear Heloise: Did you known those plastic- covered wire ties used with plastic bags make excellent make-shift book rings? They will hold your loose-leaf papers together until you get your book-binder or you get ready to put the pages in their jermanenl place. They're also landy to hold scrapbook pages. Shirley Dear Heloise: I found that nowadays most ·synthetic curtain panels can be aundered easily if a. few simple steps are followed when vashing. 1. Fold each panel twice engthwise and twice crosswise, eing careful not to crease hem. 2. Stack one on top of the jther in warm (not hot) sudsy vater in the sink. No bleach. 3. Slosh up and down with your hand, forcing the soapy vater through the curtains. Let soak for ten or fifteen minutes. 4. Place stack, still folded, nto dish pan and run rinse valor into sink. Place stack in inse wnter and slosh up and down, repeating till the w a t e r uns clear. 5. Hang on the line, still oldcd crosswise, and let d r i p SEWING CLASHES ENROLL TODAY FABRIC CITY Hang hack at the windows when dry. If you do this often enough, before they get too soiled, you will never have to put an iron to them. Of course, Ihls procedure should he done wllh new curtains and not some that have been "through the mill," so to speak. Beverly Moore Dear Folks: Have you ever tried using those plastic forks as marker holders for the flowers or vote- Cables that you have planted in your garden? They really work great as you can use the tines of the f o r k to hold that empty seed packet .n place, Heloise Dear Helulse: Ever need a "bed tent" after foot surgery and not be able to find one on the spur of the moment? We did just Ibis, and through ;he clever manipulation and imagination of my sister, we were in business in no time. She wrapped a small TV tray and s t a n d with a sheet and inserted in sideways under the bed clothing. It is a perfect tent - for comfort, air. space and plenty of room for a pillow to elevate the bandaged foot. Not only is it a joy and comfort to me, but my Siamese loves it as a "hideaway!" L.M. McNeil! HAVE YOU NOTICED That you long for and want something for a long time ... Finally you get it and you wonder why on earth you ever wanted it in the first place? Ghost Jon Dear Heloise: My husband is in the army and we have moved several times in the last few years. My latest discovery is how to cover bare windows until you can get the drapes or curtains up. Those large, dark green plastic leaf and garden bags are perfect to tape up at windows with masking tape. It looks better from the outside and you have your necessary privacy!

MOUNTAIN RECOVERY ROOM Phone 521-8815 Bobby Sherman: A Teenyboppeis' Idol Grows Up FW: Somehoto you, managed to survive the tide of screaming jans. Would you like to go back to that time? BOBBY: J don't think so. My fans lutve grown, up and I've tried to grow with them. How does a millionaire ex-idol occupy his time? For this week's color-cover feature, Family Weekly Hollywood Editor Peer J. Oppenheimer visited singingstar Bobby Sherman. Living comfortably on the royalties from recordings made when he was a teenage phenomenon--the object of devotion from a vast tide of hysterical, screaming fans -- Bobby has "retired," with wife Patty and their baby son, to a one-acre, one-story home in California. Can Bobby Sherman be happy without the adulation of thousands of adoring fans? Look for his answers in "An Ex-Teen Idol Tells Why He's Glad the Screaming's Over." In your copy of the n North KWtr St. Harvey of Fort Smltlti. Following the meeting, dinner was served by the women.
