Re: Daily Check in Jan 9, 2019

I come and I go with posting but I always read. I am on the lookout again or should I say still for that frugal true thing I might have missed. Yesterday our town saw a beautiful rainbow about 4 p.m. which is most unusual for Jan. This morning I woke to a snow squall with some of it still on the gro...

Re: Sewing Skills

I took very basic sewing class in high school and that along with the interest my mother showed toward sewing, showed me that there was much to learn about sewing. When newly married, I lived in a very small town which lacked entertainment so a group of friends would get together to take classes fro...

Re: Five Frugal Things You Did This Week

1. Prepared a large quantity of turkey veg soup using half the carcass given to me by family from Christmas dinner and veggies that were looking pretty limp. Tasty, comforting in the cold weather and saved from the garbage. There's lots of soup left over which I put into the freezer in 1.5 c contain...
