    October Hacks From The Past Roundup

    By thomas | October 31, 2008

    Hey, it’s still October for a couple more hours.  Better late than never I say.  Hacks from the Past is a series of posts that I will do monthly that will go over past hacks so that new readers don’t have to bother digging through the archives.  Here are 2007’s October hacks:

    1. Shinmai – rice fresh from the harvest. It looks, smells and tastes better. Read how to find it in the store.
    2. House brand cleaning products – Find out how to spot which house brands are good, and which ones to avoid.
    3. 300 yen steaks – Learn how to get steaks and other perishable food on the cheap.
    4. Akebi part 2 – I weigh in again on the crazy purple Japanese fruit.
    5. Reverse zousui – zousui isn’t just for saving old rice
    6. Plan your train trip online #1– for those of you who ride JR West
    7. Plan your train trip online #2 – for the rest of you

    If you have any tips, send them in. I have a few reader-submitted tips on the way, so stay tuned.
