The Simple Dollar blog had a post today on Handling Clogged Drains Frugally. I'll have to try them. I've usually done a haphazard mix of commercial drain cleaners and trying to wield an auger myself, with mixed results—I think it depends a lot on what the plumbing challenges in your house are.

I do have a very fine strainer on my bathtub drain I picked up at the hardware store (something like this) that catches everything to help avoid hair clogs.

A recent challenge is roots growing into my drainage, a good 20 feet downline from my house. They'll grow thicker, catch washing machine lint and what-have-you, and block the pipe. After getting a good professional clearing, I'm doing maintenance doses of flushing copper sulfate down the toilet to keep the drain clear.
