  • Paint Your Patio!

     Probably the single redecorating or home improvement item that makes the biggest impact is paint. A new, bold color or a new, sedate one will make all the difference in the world to your home. Your patio is no exception. Don't live with a drab, boring patio because you can't afford to buy new furniture or redo the floor. Just paint. ...

  • Yes, You Can Grow Food!

    No matter where you live, you can grow some of your own food. You may not be able to grow everything you eat, but you can grow some of it and every little bit helps in the food budget, in your health and in plain old enjoyment. How can I say this without knowing your situation? I can because you can grow something, no matter where you are. So ...

  • The Cheap Easter Basket

      Those woven Easter baskets are cheap to buy, but the cheapest ones don't last for more than one Easter. A frugal parent knows that you should put away the Easter baskets to be reused, but if they have fallen apart since last year, then what? Instead of buying yet another cheap basket, or worse, plopping down good money for more ...

  • Frugal, Natural Good Health

     Spring is finally springing! After a long, cold and snowy winter, most of the nation is beginning to see peeps of spring time here and there. The lawn is looking greener, early flowers are blooming or thinking about it, garden centers are coming alive and we are waking up from our winter hibernation. It's time to get back on track, get ...

  • Container Tomatoes

    When my daughter lived in an apartment, she had a nice balcony where she gardened in containers. Since she loves tomatoes, of course she had to plant a couple. The biggest problem was that her balcony faced due west and here it gets blazing hot in the afternoon on a west facing balcony! Tomatoes are hot weather plants, but even they don't ...

  • Facebook or Twitter?

    Or both? Social networking is such a common thing any more that almost everyone is on one or the other and sometimes both, plus several more. It's an easy way to keep up with what's going on with friends, products and sites that are helpful and interesting, so many take advantage of it. If you're on either one, look for us! Follow or ...

  • Grow Sprouts to Save Money, Be Healthy and Enjoy Eating!

     I used to think of sprouts as "health food." You know, that stuff that nutty people make themselves eat because it's supposed to be healthy whether it tastes good or not. Not any more; not since I actually tried sprouting for myself. If you've never done it, you might be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is and how good ...

  • Less Meat; Less Money

     An easy way to trim your grocery bill is to buy less meat. That's a no-brainer, right? But you've got a meat-and-potatoes husband or you love meat yourself? How can you spend less on meat, yet eat enough of it to be satisfied? By using a combination of ways, you can eat your meat and have it, too.... or something like that. When ...

  • Not Too Small!

    Walking through the parking lot to the store, I saw a crumpled soft drink can. It was at the far end of a parking space and I wanted to pick it up, but... well, it would be awkward to walk into the space just to pick up the can, then walk all the way back to the car (four or five spaces) to stow it. So I didn't. Yes, it was only a can and ...

  • Don't Throw That Out! Get More From You Vegetables

    Several years ago, I had an onion that was starting to grow. The bulb was getting mushy on the outside and fresh, greenish lances were growing vigorously from the top. The bulb wasn't much good to use as a fresh onion and the tops had a flavor that was too mild for cooking, so I planted it. It was in the spring and the garden was begging (or ...
