In the Florida Keys, a group the Green Living and Energy Education, or GLEE, came up with a unique way to raise money to build a park. They posed nude for a calendar called. From what I read, the women are all 40 and older and I think they are all women. They women have sold out of their caledars. They raised $8,000 by selling all 500 calendars. They are thinking about reprinting the calendar.
I’m not judging; I just thought it was interesting.

My friend bought a draft-stopper under her door. It eliminates the drafts and saves her money on her utilities. There are many different types of these available. If you have a drafty door these products will save you money!

I use a small plunger for use on non-toilet drains. You'd be amazed at how much of a difference a little plunge can do sometimes. Also, I have small tool called a Zip-It that is a long, flexible plastic stick that has little teeth sticking out of the sides. It works great on hair clogs.
Another option is to make your own drain clearing solution out of baking soda and vinegar. You may remember the reaction these make from making a volcano in grade school. First, bale out most of the standing water in the sink with the clogged drain. Next dump 3/4 of a cup of baking soda down the drain followed by a cup of vinegar. Let this mixture sit for about 20 minutes. While it's sitting boil a few cups of water. Dump it down the drain and it should flush out the clog. If it doesn't work the first time, repeat the procedure.
If this doesn't work you may need to call a plumber or if you are handy try a pipe snake. Beware - it's often a messy job!
