Cheesy Noodle DessertHere is a great way to use leftover noodles. I found this recipe in the 1978 book ' Betty Crocker's Microwave Cooking'
Marked Down Onions and PeppersMany times our supermarkets mark large quantities of fresh onions and peppers to such a low price that you can't afford to not take advantage of the purchase. I found fresh peppers at 50 cents per lb. and fresh onions at 20 cents per pound. I washed, sliced and diced them then packaged and labeled them in freezer bags. This coming winter I will have oodles of both to enjoy at a substantial savings.

Other Uses for the FridgeThe refrigerator isn't just for food! It can help to keep other household items fresh and extend their lives as well. And I'm not talking about your husbands ;)
Read Your Supermarket Flyers Carefully Every WeekThis weeks special was buy one 1/2 gallon of EDYS' ice cream and get 1 free. (price was $3.99 per 1/2 gallon) Buy 2 gallons and get 2 free PLUS get a $5.00 discount off of your entire bill. So, I bought 4 - 1/2 gallons of ice cream for $7.98 and received a $5.00 discount which lowered my cost to $2.98. That's 75 cents per 1/2 gallon. Where we live you can't even buy a baby ice cream cone for less than $2.25. We tucked all 4 of them in our freezer for a special treat in the future.
Breakfast in a CupI know we would all like to be able to have breakfast as a family together but sometimes mornings can be just too hectic. So here is a fast and easy way to get those kids some breakfast on the go!
Ammonia Slug ControlThis is for slug control. I mix sudsy ammonia with water, half and half (they really won't crawl away from this mixture!), or a little more water and put it in a spray bottle. You can spray this solution right onto the flowers and plants and it doesn't hurt them.
Many Uses For Foam Bathroom CleanerI use the foam bathroom cleaner for tubs and sinks on my collars, cuffs of shirts before a wash. Takes out ink marks too. It takes spots out of the carpet and stops a spider in his tracks so you can pick him up for disposal.
Cleaning "Disposable" Straws"Disposable" straws need not be! To clean, simply use a chenille stem (these were called "pipe cleaners" when I was a kid). I've seen the stems in the craft section of many stores. I bought a package of 50 at the dollar store.

Scrunchie Bear Party FavorGo to your local dollar store and find a small bear or other animal about the size of a Beanie Baby. Now buy a package of scrunchies and put each one around the bear.
2 Liter Bottle BowlingSave and wash 10 - 2 liter bottles and the lids. Get a small ball from the dollar store. Fill the bottles with a couple of inches of clean kitty litter. Set it up and let your toddlers have a ball.

A Frightfully Good TimeIt's almost Halloween - the days are slipping past, but they too can be a lot of fun - all leading up to a great family/friend time for all.
Edging Your LandscapeI landscaped for twenty years. One thing I quickly learned is that soft scalloped edges in a flower bed are much more calming to the eye than squared off beds.
Save Money At The Grocery Store With Loss LeadersTake advantage of a store's "loss leaders." These are sale items the store is selling at such a low cost they may even be losing money on them. These items are priced so low to get you into the store, with the hope that you will keep shopping for regularly priced items.
Cleaning Stubborn Dry Erase BoardsUse toothpaste (the regular kind) and put some on a rag and scrub over the board where the ink is not coming off, then rinse, wipe with a clean cloth and dry.
Help Making a Large Race Car Cake?I am having a hot wheels party for my son and my mother in law is going to make the cake but I want to give her a little help. I have told her that I want a figure 8 black race car track on the cake and I will put some cars on the track but I have no clue how she is going to make this. Has anyone ever done it before? Can anybody give me some tips to give her? She has never made a race car cake like this before and I am needing it for 40-45 people. Any ideas would be appreciated!
