Bottom sheets with a wide hem? Ok, I fixed it. TOP sheets have nice, wide hems. That's what lack of sleep does to you and it's not frugal at all, because I find myself turning on lights at odd hours of the night, munching crackers and whatever else I can find. Anything but sleep.
I've had milk, chamomile tea, valerian, rose, peppermint... whatever. Nothing works but antihistamine. Over the counter antihistamines are nonfrugal solutions, so I asked my doctor and she gave me a prescription which was cheaper than anything I've found. 125 tablets of Hydroxyzine for $12.00 is a pretty good buy, especially when I use a half tablet at a time. The problem is... well, if I could just wake up, I'd tell you about it...
I'm kidding. But on the rare occasion that I take it, it does make me loopy for about 24 hours. I wake up around bed time the next day.
So is it frugal? Maybe healthwise. I read that you don't get the full benefits of sleep until after about two and a half hours of it. Since I sometimes sleep in one hour shifts, this is probably worth it.
Anyway... I don't turn on the lights at night for one whole night. No munchies, either. That's got to count for something.
