Sometimes we all need a little dose of creative thinking, especially when it comes to fashion and figuring out exactly what the next BIG thing is going to be — not that any of us would admit to being fashion victims, heedlessly following whatever edicts are issued by the runways of the world's style capitals. However, most of us can't help but wonder just what is going to be the next HOT color ... after all, we might just want to buy something new to make us feel a little bit better about the world we live in — at least the world inside our closets.

Starved for business in a weak economy, America's fast-food restaurants are wooing customers with bargain burgers, tacos, fries, pies and other goodies. For consumers, this "value menu" showdown can be confusing. Which is best — say, Burger King's Double Cheeseburger, Wendy's Double Stack or McDonald's McDouble?
Seeking enlightenment and a cheap lunch, we visited eight fast-food chains and ordered every item priced at $1 or less. Soon we had a full notebook, an overfull stomach and ... a fistful of dollar menus.

Q: Our long, narrow living room has windows on both sides with a fireplace on the end wall. I'm having trouble arranging the furniture.

What about my problem?
