A woman arranging yellow flowers in a vase.Remember that flowers can be recycled, too! After an event, many a flower arrangement will end up in the trash! So rescue it, re-cut the flower stems and re-arrange the flowers at home. Why toss them when they still have life in them? With pruning and re-arranging the flowers can often last a week! And having fresh flowers is such a luxury, isn't it?

One of the best tips I can give a young homemaker is to always save money for flowers. If you don't have a garden and live in an apartment, they can get pretty dreary.

The dollar stores have become very handy for me. When I go, I get several vases to keep at home. When I want to take flowers to someone, I purchase them for a reasonable price from either a market or a bulk produce place.

I always search the internet for a florist in the town the flowers will be delivered to. You have to use a credit card anyway and you will get more for your money.


I call the recipient and ask for an honest evaluation of the gift so I can decide whether I will use that business again, or not.
