A thread in the reloading section on cleaning brass which included suggestions like Ice cream machines and Kool-aid, got me to thinking. What's the most miserly thing you've done to save money. I use ear funnels that borrow from the hospital so I won't have to shell out 2 bucks for a powder funnel. I collect all the plastic rimfire ammo boxes at the range to use for storage of loose primers, bullets and the such. And I'm seriously concidering looking for an electric ice cream maker at the thift store.
