FRUGALITY AWARD

BLUEBIRD
frugal tie back ideas
Not the material part. The part you put on the wall. I need something for my kitchen and great room. For the kitchen I am thinking about using old flatware. I can use stainless and paint it to match the hardware or I could use some old silver I have.

CROCHET 2
Had 2 bottles of hair conditioner that were just about empty so I opened them with the box cutter and emptied them into my 32 oz conditioner pump bottle. Did the same for one bottle of shampoo and emptied it into my 32 oz shampoo pump bottle. Also added another bottle of shampoo into that bottle and have the smaller one draining through a funnel into the larger one now. Got those empties into the recycling bag.

POOTERSMOMMY
Combined 2 hand soap bottles together. One has smell the other doesn't. They were both pump bottles. The one I emptied is a pretty red plastic pump = so I have been de-labeling it (soaking) and will keep for something else.
I got a new bottle of dish soap out this morning, turned the other upside down to get balance.
I happened to look at the empty one (Gain 30 oz. bottle) and I had dated it when I opened it. GET THIS - 8/1/12!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got over 9 months out of that bottle! I use just a little squirt or 2, 2 squirts white vinegar, and scalding water when doing dishes - so it really lasted. Wasn't trying to make it go that long - but did.
Cheryl said she uses 2 squirts and has kept one bottle going for several months.

JUST FOR YOU AWARD

AMANDA
Calorie Calculator!
This is pretty cool. You enter the food that you want to know the calorie count for and it gives it to you. So if you want to know how many calories are in a banana, you just type in "banana" and you get back the info.

HOME AND GARDEN AWARD
-----------------------

CAT LOVER
Gardening Hand Cleaners
In my greenhouse I really don't want to use anything with chemicals in it including hand cleaners. I now keep a container of cornmeal and a bottle of vinegar in there and use it for cleaning my hands when I'm done. It works great and isn't expensive and best of all pretty natural. The cornmeal helps wipe away the grime and the vinegar takes any smell away you may have from gardening. All you do is mix a little cornmeal with a little vinegar and gently scrub your hands!

WENDYMICHELLE
Removing Grease From Walls...
To remove grease from any wall in my home I put some cornstarch onto a cloth and rub the spot until the mark is gone.

But all the long year through
The joy that you give to others
