Ways to Save Money on Dinner
Here are tips and strategies for Saving Money on Dinner as suggested by the ThriftyFun community? What is your advice for Saving Money on Dinner.
Cigar Box Decoupage
I get cigar boxes for free at the local newsroom. I subscribe to a few magazines pertaining to things that interest me; ocean beach scenes and seascapes, art and design, photography, etc.
This has just enough bite to be great without being overpowering. We have used this recipe for about 20 years.
Use Egg Cartons to Keep Squash Off the Ground
Use egg cartons to prop your vegetables up out of the dirt in your garden when they get too heavy.
Strawberry and Kiwi Yogurt Freeze
Place fruit in shallow dish. Freeze 3 to 4 hours or until firm. Place frozen fruit in food processor bowl with metal blade. Cover; process 15 to 20 seconds or until coarsely chopped.
Recipes Using Eggs
I have 22 hens that are kicking into high gear laying eggs. If you, too, are looking for egg recipes, I found tons by goggling "recipe 12 eggs", "recipe 7 eggs", "recipe 10 eggs" etc.
Saving Money on Pants
Here are tips for Saving Money on Pants as suggested by the ThriftyFun community: First of all - take care of the pants you already have, washing them inside out if not heavily soiled. Also, if you must iron, iron them inside out as well. Take off work pants when you get home, don't cook or clean in them.
Healthy Orange Julius
Mix together equal parts orange juice and milk in an empty 16 oz water bottle. Then add a tiny capful of real vanilla and replace the cap and shake.
Use Plastic Garden Trays for Transporting Baked Goods
Each year, I come home from the local garden center with several large trays. The plastic ones with raised sides that they give you to carry your flats of plants in the car.
Tourtier (French Meat Pie)
This is recipe passed to me from my mother in-law, who's mother and grand mother passed it down the line. It's tasty and I am lucky if I can get it in to a pie shell before most is grabbed in a bowl with crusty bread.
Product Review: Bissell Cleanview 11 (Bagless)
I love this vacuum. I have a Kirby that went out, and I got tired of repairing it each time because it always cost me $24.00 to repair. I am so proud of this vacuum.
Almond and Mushroom Topped Perch
Rinse fish, pat dry with paper towels. In a shallow dish combine milk and egg. In another shallow dish combine flour and salt. Dip fish into egg mixture, then coat with flour mixture.
Crispy Crown Casserole
This is a classic casserole with chicken and creamy soups.
Stiffening Silk Flowers for Projects
If you are making a craft projects with silk flowers, you can stiffen them, and still keep their bright color, by using the strongest hair spray you can find.
Keeping Dogs from Digging
Our chihuahuas kept digging the dirt up around their pen (a chain link fence). We found that sprinkling chili pepper around the edges of the fence stopped them from doing it.
Meat and Potatoes Supper
Line large Dutch oven with foil. Layer sliced potatoes, sliced onions and cheese. Brown pork chops and put on top of layers. Add another layer. Add 1/2 cup milk and bake at 350 degrees F until brown.
Online Banking Advice
To help keep track of internet banking, I keep a special page in my agenda dedicated to all my banking transactions done online; date, which account, amount, and the reference number. That way I don't need to print them out and have it right beside me ready to use.
Cream together the margarine and sugar, add eggs, flour and syrup. Mix well and add nuts, if desired. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F in a greased, floured cookie sheet with lip.
Thrifty Custom Painted Signs
This is a fun way to create custom art using very inexpensive supplies, often things most people have on hand. Great for giving old items new life.
