Frugal ManicureDo you like to receive a manicure and/or a pedicure but feel you can't afford the high prices? Have I got a deal for you. Check out your local high school and see if they have a beautifican class. I recently had a manicure by a senior student and she was supervised by the teacher several times during my manicure. I had called ahead of time and made an appointment that was agreeable to my time schedule. She was very professional and did a really good job. The $6 that the school policy charged was well worth it. I got to pick out the color nail polish and happily added a tip to the cost. A happy manicure and/or pedicure to you. By joesgirl

Making Clothing for my 6 Year OldFor my 6 year old, I have found patterns on sale at fabric stores when special sales run for half price if not .99 cents. I have saved many of my old denim skirts, or can even buy them at thrift stores, take apart at seams, and use for making capris, shorts, and skirts.

Julia Child (1912-2004)For those of us who enjoyed watching Julia Child on PBS over the years, I wanted to pay tribute to the woman who brought gourmet cooking to normal everyday folks. I can remember my mother trying new recipes thanks to Julia and being the good cook that my mom was, my family benefited from it.
