Saving Money on Meals
When it comes to saving money on groceries, planning makes all the difference! Planning your family's meals can not only save you money, but time and effort as well.
Removing Oil Stains from Garage Floor
I recently bought a house and I am turning the garage into a workshop. There is a pretty thick oil and grease buildup where the cars were parked and apparently worked on.
Keeping Soda Pop Fresh
To keep canned soda after opening, place a small piece of plastic wrap on the can with an elastic band. It's just like a top.
Recycle Your Computer at Staples
Staples will help you recycle your old computer(s) for cheap if you live in Washington or Oregon. It appears that the program is just in those two states.
Make Your Own Sourdough
If you make homemade bread, why not try sourdough. You save lots of money on yeast (which can be expensive) and once you get the starter going, it is pretty simple.
Make Your Own Baking Powder
Don't have any baking powder handy? Here's a recipe for making your own.
Frugal Easter Game
Throughout the year when I cook eggs, I just take off the tip of the egg, pour the egg out, clean it and dry it and store the shell until Easter. When Easter rolls around, I get all the empty eggs out.
Styrofoam Easter Egg Craft
This is a quick and easy craft. Using Styrofoam eggs, put a heavy duty tooth pick, or a wood skewer, (helps in holding) stick it in the bottom of the egg.
Return Address Labels
Do you get too many return address labels in the mail like I do? When this happens I cut off the names and then I have some pretty or cute little stickers for my envelopes and packages.
Rid-Ex Alternative for Your Septic Tank
Instead of using Rid-ex for a monthly solution for a septic tank - use baking soda and yeast and flush down the toilet.
Fill Up the Tank Early
Fill your gas tank in the morning or when it is the coolest. The gas doesn't expand as much when it is cool so you get more gas per gallon. That's why they say don't 'top off' your tank especially on hot days or it will come out of the gas cap if you fill up and just park the car. By CSINBAD
Use Leftover Jam on Chicken
Do you have some jelly or jam that you hardly ever use? Next time you make a roasted chicken, slather the jam or jelly onto the chicken during the last 30 minutes of cooking. The sugar in it will give it a nice crunchy crystallized coating. Happy eating.
