Re: What Frugal Things No Longer Work For You ??

Making my own laundry soap no longer works for me. I can get crazy cheap laundry soap by combining coupons with sales (even decent kind at Dollar Tree for just $1 for a huge bottle). I just use a little less than the bottle directs, my clothes are perfectly clean and I don't have the mess and storag...

Re: Daily Check In July 19, 2019

Greetings Y'all. HEAT WAVE - temperature feels like 110 according to the radio. It has been a busy day. I am off today from my primary job (actually off every Friday through September - trying to use up some vacation time). I did my grocery shopping very early this morning. Hit the "regular" superma...

Re: Fun in the Summer!

Here's another fun idea for anyone who is interested. We usually have a neighborhood BBQ every summer. Well, when I coordinate it we do! LOL The last two years I haven't felt well enough to plan one, so we haven't had it. BUT, we're back on track for this year. The BBQ will be on Sunday afternoon, ...

Re: Our 2019 No Spend Challenge

Janet, I was able to improvise by using peanut butter and some melted strawberry preserves. Added the oats and flax seed and some dried cranberries. This is not as healthy as using the dates - but it works and tastes good.

Re: Our 2019 No Spend Challenge

Janet, thank you for your inspiring ways of obtaining and using ingredients for meals! When I get home from the library, I will be making oat bars to have as snacks for the coming week My recipe is normally made with dates but I'm out of dates - so I'll be digging through the pantry and improvising....

Re: Daily check in June 29, 2019

Hello All. HOT again today and so humid. We are under a severe thunderstorm watch but that won't bother me. That is NOT a complaint - I prefer this over the terrible cold of winter. Had a hard time getting going this morning but finally got dishes and laundry done and came to the library to submit m...
