Get me off my butt.

After getting married, and starting a new (temporarily lower paying) job, money is tight. During the wedding planning, I thought, "Man, when I have the money again, I'd love to get back to rock climbing or take a French class". Well, the money is still tight, and looks to be for a while. What are some hobbies I can pick up that would cost very little to no money per month? [more inside]

Should I heat my barn with gas or electricity?

We have an old barn in our backyard that we are currently restoring. It will be fully insulated when finished (though we're recycling old windows that are probably 100 years old, which are single pane, so it won't be optimally efficient.) I am trying to decide if we should heat it with gas or electricity. Because the barn has never been heated before, and we're changing it anyway, I'm having a hard time estimating costs. (See extended explanation for details.) [more inside]

A place to call a reasonably priced hotel in Toronto.

Toronto hotels filter: I'm coming to Toronto at the end of the month for a week and need to find a (very?) nice hotel no more than two blocks away from Bloor Street (at about Yonge or so - I think the area is called Yorkville but I'm not sure) at a reasonable price. We're two adults, one shopping and one working, and one baby and the prices we've found so far are quite insane ($500+ per night). Thanks!

Move over atkins, need a seat on the express!

Beer! Specifically the low carb kind. The Scandinavian beer industry demands a premium for this kind of beer, anywhere from $.50 or $1 on each half liter. Are there actually extra production costs for the everyday, run of the mill lower carbohydrate type flavored water? Or is this just extra profit in the brewers pocket? The science behind would be appreciated.

Calculating road trip debts: Beyond the Excel Spreadsheet

7 friends and I are going on a road trip. At restaurants we usually have one person pay by credit card, and have everyone paying for what they ordered to the individual. Oh, and not everyone is gonna be at every event, so having one individual pay for everything on the trip is impossible. And it should redistribute debts so at most each person only needs to make 1 payment to another person. What is the best free method for calculating who pays whom? [more inside]

Truck battery cost

My 18 year old son went to Express Oil Change to have a new battery put in his 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac. His battery was dead and when jumped off, it would not hold a charge. They put an MTP-65 Interstate battery in and charged him $146 for the battery alone. With installation, charging system testing fee, and taxes, the total cost was $208.93. Does that sound high? I was expecting to pay half of that.
