Don't throw away those magnetic sports schedules on your refrigerator, after the season is over. They can be cut up into any size you need and used in lots of crafts. Simply hot glue the non-magnetic side to whatever you're making. I can't remember the last time I actually had to buy magnets :)
My sister taught me a lesson from the depression days: Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. Good advice today as well.

My grand daughter (5) and I paste white paper unto top of magnet. She cuts out pictures from magazines and pastes them unto the whitei paper.
My hubby was a Depression-era kid. But unfortunately, he's always rebelled against your sisters (and my) philosophy. I'm working on him, though, and will for as long as he lives, lol!
