Default Squeaky's Old Style Indexed Collections

Thanks to Squeaky and all the wonderful thrifty old-stylers for all their work on this - it's inspiring. Do look at our Thrifty Ways charity book too.

Also read: Getting to Know You and Quick Questions on anything

Update July 2013: Sadly our wonderful board guide Squeaky who was the driving force behind this has passed away (see book of remembrance). This index has now been renamed in his memory.


We have a number of different indexes here on Old Style. Listed immediately below here are indexes on many of the subjects that come up most often. Each of these indexes are in different threads and each has been compiled and is maintained by one of our members, thank you all.

Further down this thread is the MEGA Index which is list of around 3,000 threads on subjects not covered by an index of its own.



Individual Indexes:-

These indexes are currently undergoing extensive updates - so please bear with us for the moment.
Building - new links added:-

Confirmed:
Test layout:

Books:
The Complete Book colln.
Cleaning:
The Complete Laundry and Clothes Collection - Alisonpennypincher

Flooring and carpets - Alisonpennypincher

etc

Cooking:
The Complete Jam, Chutney and other Preserves collection - Apprentice Tycoon

The Complete Pizza Collection - Iwantahouse

Slow cooker recipe index - Murtle
The MEGA Indexed Thread (2nd edition)


This index, as has been said, is a collection of a large number of threads, sorted into groups, which do not have an index of their own.


The first part of the MEGA Index is in the post immediately below this one, so please just scroll down.



This Forum Tip was included in MoneySavingExpert's weekly email

Don't miss out on new deals, loopholes, and vouchers

Default The MEGA Index thread (2nd edition)

..

The MEGA Indexed Thread (2nd edition)


This thread will contain links to many of the threads started in Old Style and they'll be organised into various categories to help you find them. I've done my best to put each item into the section where I think it most likely that someone would look first. I shall be starting with the older threads first and moving forward to catch up with everyone.

For those of you new to Old Style and wondering where and how to start there are some threads now listed in Getting Started


Wear your MoneySaving Old Style Badge with pride



Each of the sections listed below is actually a single post in this thread, so you can either:-


a) Click on the link provided to go directly to the section that interests you...

b) Simply scroll down the thread until you find it.





APPLIANCES

Various tips on household appliances can be found here. They are each to be found in separate sections such as:-

Dishwasher

Tumble Drier

Various links for the manuals of Old Style appliances can be found here. A similar set of link for household goods can be found on this board:- In my home (includes DIY) MoneySaving





CLEANING

Everything from the bath, through clothes, to worktops. The list is organised alphabetically by what item you want to clean, and then various er, substances, that you'd like to remove are listed by thread title.

Many of these links have been added to in:-

The Complete Laundry and Clothes Collection

Flooring and carpets






COOKING and RECIPES

Lots of threads which contain recipes for food and drinks that are not as yet indexed in the Old Style Recipe Collection and including other assorted tips to do with cooking. (You might also want to check out the Food section below which, while primarily about growing your own etc, does have a few recipes in there)

Note:- The Cooking Section of the MEGA Index is now being looked after by rosieben, so the link on the button below takes you to our new "Complete Cooking Collection"

But to see the recipes:-





CRAFTWORK

See also Special Occasions and Celebrations for special gift ideas.

Threads here relate to making your own things for the house or as gifts, and includes making and keeping play dough. Fast becoming a real treasure chest of gift ideas! I've added things like clothes repair and dyeing.





FOOD

We now have a board dedicated to growing your own:-

Greenfingered MoneySaving

New questions should be asked there.

Here is where you'll find our older threads about food itself rather than how to cook it. As you'll see it is subdivided into several sections:-

CHICKENS


FOOD FOR FREE

GROW YOUR OWN and GARDENING


HYGIENE & SAFETY

MISC FOOD TOPICS (includes food storage)

ORGANIC BOX SCHEMES





GETTING STARTED

A collection of assorted threads where people have asked "How and where do I start?" There are lots of different answers to browse here.

This is now a new Complete Getting Started Collection:-




INSECTS (and other pests)

Other threads on pest control can be found here:- In my home (includes DIY) MoneySaving

A section each for the most common ones and the others will be collected as "The Rest" or something.

ANTS

MOSQUITOES

WASPS





KITCHENWARE

I've only got crockery listed here at the time of writing but I do know that we have other threads on knives and pans and even breadmakers and slow cookers yet to be added.

This now the The Complete Kitchen Equipment and must have OS gadgets Collection





MAKEUP & BODY CARE

From bathtime, through make-up to shower gel. Pamper yourself for pennies while you browse some other great tips.

This now our Complete Makeup and Body Care Collection:-





MISCELLANEOUS TIPS

See also:- Green and Ethical MoneySaving

Pretty much anything that doesn't have its own section can be found here. If enough tips on a similar subject accumulate I'll split them out into a section of their own. Getting organised, and recycling tips are here.





PETS

New posts should be made to our new Pet Care board:-

Pets & Pet Care


Fleas and smelly litter trays etc head the list.




SHOPPING

Various other boards that can help with shopping and strectching your budget are listed first.

We start with beating the supermarkets and budgeting for Christmas and follow up with budgeting in general and returning dodgy goods. Then there's the three purse system, which shops have the best deals...






The first of the sections listed above is in the post directly below this one. Just scroll down.

Default Tips required on using a Mini Oven please

I have just bought a mini oven from Argos for 13.29 as only half of our grill works and I hate having to put the oven on just to cook one or two things.

I was wondering if anyone else uses one of these and what settings do you use it on if cooking jacket potatoes, potato wedges etc?

If you have one of these what do you use it for mostly?

It has broil, bake and toast settings.

Ta.
