Two Un-Frugal Winter Moves

February 3rd, 2009 at 01:09 pm


Both of these happened to me. The first, a year ago, was a very expensive stunt. And the second, a minor expense, just happened.

1. Leaving the garden hose attached to the outside faucet in freezing weather. Result, a burst pipe which only became known in the spring after it was discovered that all the plant watering was also watering stored items in the basement.

2. Buying soda in 12 packs on sale and then storing them in the garage, and forgetting to bring them in during freezing weather. Result: exploding pop cans and monstrous bulging pop cans. Luckily, everything was still frozen, so cleanup was easy. What a waste.

Oops.

    I have exprienced the first...but wouldn't have given the second a thought! At least it was easy to clean up!

    Thanks for the reminder! I have a 12 pack in the car. Its not freezing out there, but I definately don't want the cans to explode in there!

    Cold weather leads to similar results with a plastic 20-ounce bottle, just for the record. Good times. =) I had the second one happen before the first one, actually... there's just never any insurance that I will put 2 and 2 together sometimes! Duh.
