Pack Vacation Treasures Among Your Clothing
When we go vacationing out of state, I like to go treasure hunting while I'm there. The way to transport all my little collectibles; I wrap them in my clothes. I keep them in the plastic bags they give me but I separate them and wrap them in my clothes. The clothing protects my treasures and I don't have to take up more trunk space.
I am always looking for a deal.

Tea Tree Oil For Mold
I like to use tea tree oil to clean mold in the bathroom. In a 1 quart spray bottle, fill almost 3/4 full and add 30 to 40 drops of tee tree oil and about 1 to 2 tablespoons of liquid dish detergent.
I don't know about you, but I love shopping at the farmer's market. I have a small garden, but it is not enough to feed the seven people who live in my house so I do my quantity shopping at the farmer's market.
Frugal Guidelines For Grocery Shopping
Sticking to a grocery budget can get interesting, to say the least. A really good sale on non-perishable items can tempt you to overspend. I have learned to put my grocery money in an envelope. When I run out of money, I quit buying. If I need another loaf of bread, more than likely the ingredients are on hand. I have a few other guidelines, too.
Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Turn heat to medium. Spread peanut butter over one tortilla using the back of a spoon. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and marshmallows. Cover with another tortilla.

Use Old Pantyhose to Keep Rain Barrel Water Clean
I've discovered that when collecting rain in your rain barrel, you can put a leg from a pair of pantyhose over the end of your downspout. It keeps the water clean, especially if your gutters have any debris in them. I hold the pantyhose material on with an elastic band, which makes it easy to remove and rinse off when it gets dirty.
"Fried Ice Cream"
When ready to serve, pull it out of the freezer and cut it into serving size pieces. Top with a drizzling of chocolate syrup and a maraschino cherry for an extra flair.

Eat Your Potatoes, Peelings and All
When I peel potatoes, I leave a small amount of the potato on the peeling and place the pieces in a bowl of cold water. I then drain them and pat dry. I place the peelings on a greased pan in a single layer.
Grease 9x13 inch baking pan with part of oil and mix all ingredients together. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.

With grocery prices rising almost daily, I am even more prudent in seeking even small ways to save. Tip: Don't throw away eggs just because the sell by date has passed.

Has anyone ever tried it this way, and which way do you think would be best?
