Frugal footnotes:

Here are some additional frugal tips to save money on window screens:

 

- Patch the hole in your window screen by placing two pieces of screen together, and then whipping them together with fishing line or invisible thread.
 
- Buy window screen mesh when it goes on sale and keep it handy in the garage.
 
- Be careful with the screens on sliding windows.  Make sure young children can't reach them, push them out, and fall out the window.
