I'm into fitness, running, healthful eating, vegetarianism and veganism, dogs, crafts, beadwork, sewing, artwork,, etc., etc., etc.
My Frugal Life: Message In A BottleTo Whoever Has Chanced Upon This Bottle: I am stranded on a deserted island somewhere in the tropics. I am as well as the circumstances justify, thank you very much. After all, I consider myself somewhat of a minimalist anyway, inherently resourceful and inventively frugal.
Frugal Decoupage Door SignDing dong! Our dogs were going bonkers. We needed a "No Soliciting" sign quick! I didn't like the way the black store-bought ones looked, and I didn't want to spend money anyway. So I made my own. All the materials used for the sign were items I already had in my garage or in my office.
Ideas for Healthy SnacksNot only are these snacks healthy, most of them make great "grab and" go snacks for the whole family.
Decorated Ceramic LampIt's easy (and cheap) to give new life to a boring ceramic lamp. I purchased the ceramic lamp on sale for $4.99. I used a sponge (cut into a square and rectangle with a utility knife) and a foam stencil brush, some acrylic paint, and some spray gloss.
Simple Beaded PendantThe pendant shown here was made from "recycled" jewelry: I will often buy used necklaces, charms, etc. at thrift stores and yard sales, take them apart, and make new creations with the beads and other parts.
Recycled Wind ClackersPerfect decoration for your clothes line! Drill four holes around the edge of the lid of a peanut butter jar. Drill a hole in the center of four liquid laundry detergent caps.
