Masculine Homemade Christmas Gift
I've been racking my brain trying to think of something to give the uncles and older male cousins in our family for Christmas this year...so much so that I gave myself a headache. As I reached into the first aid kit in my desk to grab a individual dose packet of Advil, it hit me!
Solar Window Heating Panel Plans
Here in Colorado they are talking about our ulitilies going up by 25 percent. I don't know about you but I can't afford to pay more to heat my home. I have Fibromyalsia and to get cold can knock me off my feet for days at a time. So my husband and I did a search on the internet for something that was cheap, could be made ourselves and could help out with the heating bills. Here we have a lot of days when we do have sunshine so we thought solar would be the way to go.
Tomato Soup Instead of Sauce
Use Tomato Soup in place of tomato sauce in meat dishes. I use the soup with slices of onion on top of burgers, pork chops and chicken for a tasty change of pace.
Locate the Bargain Bins
Most stores have reduced, marked down item bins. Always go there first when shopping early in the morning. You get the best of the bargains.
Easy butter cookies. Great for the holidays.
Parenting Joke - Very Good Advice!
The best way to keep kids at home is to provide a pleasant home atmosphere... And, let the air out of their tires. LOL By Gladys Hill
Christmas Wreath Using Preformed Bows
I save the bows off my gifts to be frugal. Sometimes they get crushed and out shape in storage. Can't use them again? Oh I can!
Keeping Guacamole From Darkening
You can make guacamole ahead for use, today or several days later, by pressing plastic wrap directly on the surface. Make sure there are no air bubbles or a way for air to get to the top. Store in refrigerator.
Perfect Cheeseballs for the Holidays
I prepare several at a time as the recipe can be doubled, wrap in air tight plastic wrap. Store in refrigerator and have them to use through the holidays. Also makes nice gifts for family and friends.
Brown Sugar Icing

Self Cleaning Oven Tip
When using a self cleaning oven, run the cycle directly after baking and take advantage of the built up heat already in the oven. By Lynn
Keeping Mashed Potatoes Hot
Once you've mashed them, keep them on low, covered in a crockpot. Butter melts well on them. Delicious!
Hitting The Nail On The Head
To hold a nail without hitting your fingers, put it between the tines of a fork!
Keep Good Records And Save Receipts
To keep all your records and receipts buy a good 4 drawer filing cabinet at a yard sale or thrift shop. This saves me a lot of time. When the IRS audited me, for 2 years back, I pulled out my bank file from 2 years ago.
Frequent Thrift Stores For Clothing
Many times they have a super sale like a bag of clothes for $5. I've bought new hooded sweatshirts for my granddaughter with 6 fitting in a bag. Recently, they had women's clothing for $.50 each.
Birthday And Anniversary Reminder List
In addition to having a reminder a few days prior to the birthday or anniversary of a family member or friend, I also have a list on my computer, wordpad program.
Send An Address Label With Your Greeting Cards
I always insert a stick-on address label with my address inside cards that I send. That makes it easier for the receiver so they don't have to hand address a card back to me. They also don't have to spend time looking up my address. If the address labels are on a sheet, cut the label off with the paper still attached. If not, place it on a piece of wax paper. It will pull off easily and they can use it. By Gladys Hill
