I also would like to say - this is a really neat idea. I just tried it and it was easy, quick and really works great. Now I just have to buy more orange juice since I have been recycling my containers.


My first "project" will be used for my kitties snacks. Now I can mix several type together so they will not get tired of the "same old thing".

Sorry you did not win but I missed this hint even though I receive (and read) almost all of Thrifty's tips?
