This is such a great idea and so simple to do. If you have children and crayons, odds are, you have a collection of broken crayons or crayons so short, it’s hard for little fingers to use. Instead of tossing them out, you can melt them down and create “new” crayons in whatever fun shapes […]
Once a year I go through various drawers and cabinets, checking for items that have expired, like spices or medications. This past week I spent time exploring all the medicine cabinets and was surprised at just how many items were past their expiration dates. It was a bit disheartening too at the amount of bottles […]
This pepperoni and pepper stromboli is so easy to make and delicious. You can easily substitute different cheeses if you prefer or if red bell peppers are pricey, just use a green bell pepper. I made this for a fantasy football draft my husband had at the house and the guys loved it. You can serve this […]
These are simple wreaths that took about 5 minutes to put together and cost less than $10. You can of course use the same ideas and make yours more elaborate but I just wanted to show you that even if you don’t have a creative bone in your body, you can make one, inexpensively.
I try to do a spring and fall closet cleaning and organization every year. These are great times to weed through what you don’t use, what doesn’t fit or needs repairs and to pull out seasonal clothes.
For years I’ve heard the word “probiotic” but never really thought about it or if I needed it. I knew that a lot of yogurt brands advertised they contained probiotics but again, I didn’t necessarily ask myself if my body needed them. Well, as I’ve shared before, I was diagnosed with celiac disease earlier this year and while going […]
The very first time my husband and I made a meal together when we were dating and then cleaned the kitchen together we created a habit we still do to this day. We both carry the dishes to the kitchen, I put any leftovers in the fridge and take the dishes to him, he rinses […]
I love having floral arrangements scattered throughout our house, especially when we entertain, but I don’t like the expense of them. Today Ashley and I show you how to make some quick, easy, and affordable arrangements using flowers from the grocery store mixed with items from my yard. All of the vases we use, including […]
Here’s some fun and practical ways you can use those corks…
I was at an estate sale the other day and they had their check-out area in the garage. While standing in line, I saw a shelf of cleaning products, glues, and miscellaneous spray cans of stuff. I went over for a closer look and spied a can of Static Guard and was THRILLED…especially because it was almost full and only 50 cents. I have seriously needed a can of Static Guard for FIVE years but always forget to buy it at the store. Seriously.
Looking for a new cheese dip to serve during football season? Or something a little different for all the holiday gatherings coming up? Then this cheesy provolone dip just might be the ticket. This dish takes about 10 minutes from start to finish and is so ooey gooey delicious. Because of how provolone cheese melts, with […]
If you follow my website you know that I’m a huge supporter of non-profit organizations, consignment and thrift stores and even garage sales. I personally am a huge fan of our local Discover Goodwill stores and feature makeover contests every month with shopping trips to our local stores. I shop there for clothes, household goods, […]
I saw some car wax on the clearance aisle at Target and almost picked some up and then thought, “I bet we already have some”, and then my next thought was, “And who’s going to actually wax one of the cars if I do buy it”….(for some reason, neither my husband or I do that on […]
Nearly 7 in 10 women struggle to sleep, which can cause memory problems, depression, weakening of your immune system (which can increase your chance of becoming sick,) and increase your perception of pain. With so many women having challenges with getting enough sleep, it’s no wonder prescription sleep medicines have been on the rise. But […]
I saw Roma tomatoes on sale at Safeway this week for 79 cents lb, which is an excellent price, so I wanted to stock up on them but knew they’d go bad before we could eat all of them so I decided to freeze them. I’ll use them for sauces, stews, soups and casseroles. Of course […]
There’s no such thing as “a simple glue gun project”. It’s soooo addicting. Proceed with caution. I warn you.
This awesome taco recipe utilizes the inexpensive Talapia Tammy found in her Wednesday Coupons and Deals. These tacos can feed a family of 4 for less than $10, TOTAL!
I shop at The Dollar Tree but even if you don’t have that particular store in your area, these are basic items you can find at any $1 store.
Everyone usually has clothespins in the house…even if you don’t use them to hang up clothes on the line to dry. They are cheap, easy to store and can easily be used in some nontraditional ways.
In honor of Labor Day, I’m taking the day off…..Whether you’re enjoying the day with family or friends, shopping the holiday sales, or simply enjoying a day off (for those lucky enough to have the day off), have a great day!
