September Use It Up and Recycle Challenge

Post by Jackielou » Thu Aug 27, 2015 7:40 pm

Going to really try and use up all those bits and bobs in the craft room, and all the leftovers in the fridge.

Anyone care to join in?

I'm in. I'm going to try to squeeze in more curb shopping this month to see what we can find for the cabin. We recently scored a big pile of decking that we're using to redo the bath house porch. Can't wait to see what we'll find next. Would really like to find a bunch of doors for a project I hope to start on soon.

Keeping up with what's in the fridge has become more of a challenge now that the kids are packing their own lunches, so I'm hoping to make some progress there, too.

So glad you decided to come out of lurkdom :) We actually built this forum a year ago, just in case About ever decided to close the FL forum. As soon as I heard the news, we pulled it out of storage, and got busy working on it again. It's such a great community, I couldn't bear to see it go away. We'll just pick up right where we left off over on the other forum :)

Yep, I'll still be writing the Frugal Living topic for About, just minus the forum. I'm a busy girl indeed :)
