Sage Advice for 2013
Very, very good advice.
Midnight Snow (Hillsboro, OR)
Just love your picture.
Cut Lotion Bottle To Use All
When I get home after work today I plan on cutting open my body lotion container to get more out of it. Struggled with it this morning. I am not a very frugal person, but there are just some things that I hate to waste - body lotion, laundry and dish detergent...
Acknowledging the Anniversary of a Loved One's Passing
Kathy that is such a good idea. If I know someone well, I usually try to call around the anniversary of the death. A card would be so nice. Being a widow for 14 months now I certainly have appreciated the thoughtfulness of others.
Acknowledging the Anniversary of a Loved One's Passing
What a great idea that is, Kathy. I usually place a phone call near the anniversary date. I know the feeling - being a widow for 14 months you so much appreciate the thoughtfulness of others.
Scenery: Sunset (Lake Texoma, TX)
What a great picture. Just beautiful. I am coming down to check it out (will bring cooler air with me - I promise).
Freeze Food Waste Until Garbage Day
I have been doing this for a long time, especially in the warmer weather. Also, once I bought meat, got home & the expiration date had expired. Until I could return it to the store, I put it in the freezer.
Dryer Sheets For Garbage Odor
Great idea! Am going to do that from now on.
Reuse Plastic Yogurt Cups
Great idea. I am a Yogurt lover, especially Stonyfield Chocolate Underground. Yummy.
Thanks so much.
Carry Loose Checks in Wallet
I think it is a good idea. I have been putting one check in my wallet for about the last month. Am always afraid of losing my checkbook when I am out and about.
Just love your picture. It would make a good 500 piece jigsaw puzzle.
Difference Between Yellow and White Onions
Don't be embarrassed, Linda. Just last week my daughter & I were talking about a sweet onion she needed for a recipe. I am not going to reveal my young (wishful thinking) age, but I have been cooking for a long time & I did not know which one to buy! Do know...
Scenery: Sunset (St. Placide, Quebec)
Beautiful beautiful beautiful. I just love it! I want to hang it in my living room. Even though it is a snow scene, it warms me up.
Heat Spoon For Honey
I know this problem has probably been discussed on ThriftyFun before, but does anyone know how to loosen honey that is in the bottom of the jar?
Keep a Button Jar
I take the plastic bag with the button and safety pin it to the label of the item. I will then always know where it is if I lose a button or decide to give the item away the new holder will have the button.
Photo: For Your Sweet Tooth
Yummy! My favorites, M & M's. Please e-mail them to me. I am hungry at the moment.
Colander to Remove Excess Salt from Nuts
Thanks for the idea. I recently bought dried ginger slices. Have been noticing how much sugar is in the bag. When I get home I plan on emptying the bag in a colander and get rid of the excess sugar. Why did I not think of that before?
Place Ice Cube Trays on Cookie Sheet
Great Idea! I always manage to get water on my floor and in the refrigerator before I get the ice cube trays in the right place in the refrigerator.
Scenery: Sunset (Myrtle Beach, SC)
BEAUTIFUL - BEAUTIFUL - BEAUTIFUL!
Blue Morning Glories
Just love your picture this bright sunny Monday morning. Your picture looks so peaceful.
Awhile ago I also took a picture off a frame, took tape and added more cardboard. My portable puzzle works just fine especially when my 3 year old twin grandkids visit (puzzle goes under the couch then) or just needing table space when company arrives. Your...
Scenery: Sunrise (Lake Conway, AR)
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful picture. My bags are packed, I will be down to visit so I can enjoy this!
As I had to throw out 2 strawberries this morning due to that white yucky stuff on them, I thought I have got to check on thriftyfun & check out a solution. Thank you!
Scenery: Sawatch Range, Colorado
Beautiful, just love your picture, Holly.
Frozen Graham Cracker Sandwiches
Oh boy, the next time I go to the grocery store you know what I will be buying. I have such a sweet tooth. Great idea, divedenoja. Thanks.
Grammar Tip: "Stationary" vs "Stationery"
The grammar tip I always remember - (principle or principal). When you need to spell the principal of your school, use principal (he is your pal - last 3 letters of the word). It always amazes me how some things you always remember - don't ask me what I wore...
Peanut Butter Brownies
Thanks for the recipe. Peanut butter and chocolate -absolutely love them together (and separate of course). I always say if there is ever a bad snowstorm in my area and we run out of food -- everything will be okay as long as I have peanut butter in the house...
Craft: No Sew Fleece Blanket
Very, very nice. I made two blankets a couple of months ago for my twin grandchildren. Also, one for my nephew's birthday last month. They are such nice gifts.
Resizing a Large T-Shirt
Nifty. Real nice. I always have a problem with tee shirts being too long.
Vase as a Going Away Gift
Great picture. No city is more breath-taking than NYC. Good luck to them.
Peaches and Cream Pie
Ranji - this sounds yummy on a rainy Tuesday morning in NY. I have good intentions - am going to purchase ingredients that I will need to make your pie and bring it to my daughter and son-in-law's home this weekend. If I wasn't sitting at work, I would run...
Peaches and Cream Pie
Tried it - very, very good. Was a hit. Thank you. (Langiegirl - I used instant pudding and it was fine)
Use Vaseline for Young Looking Skin
Several years ago my aunt died at 96. Not many wrinkles at all. She always stayed out of the sun and used Ponds Cold Cream on her face every night. Great looking lady she was.
Store Unfinished Jigsaw Puzzles in a Pizza Box
Great idea. It was only last month (after many years of doing jigsaw puzzles and having them take up space in my living room on a card table), that I came up with a similar idea. I had a picture on my wall that I decided to take down and replace. I turned the...
Eye Glasses Holder
Like it - like it - like it. Hopefully I will find the time some day to try making one for myself!
Stretching Shake 'n Bake
Thanks for this good idea. I like Shake 'n Bake (and it is so easy to add to chicken or pork chops).
Strategically Place Note Pads as Memory Aids
I always keep an on-going grocery list of items that are needed. Grrrr.....so many times I get to the grocery store and my well organized list is sitting on the kitchen table!
Use Bread to Absorb Meatloaf Grease
Thanks for that information. Never thought of doing that. Will certainly use your bread idea the next time I make meat loaf.
Link: Knorr Spinach Dip
Been making this for years. Yummy! I do not like spinach by itself, but this dip is delicious.
Add a Slice of Bread to Fresh Baked Cookies
Thanks for info, Pam. When I get around to making Christmas cookies, I will put a slice of bread in my zip-lock bag to keep them fresh. Never thought of doing that with cookies.
Scenery: Autumn Driving In Virginia
Oh, I absolutely love your autumn scene. Your picture is calling to me and telling me to leave right now and drive down!
Baby Proofing Home For Triplets
My daughter's twins are also 15 months old. Her living room looks like no one is living there. The coffee table is long gone. Every picture is pushed very far back on tables. She uses those "rubbery" corners for the tables and a small strap that goes on the...
Use Your Oven Heat to Warm Your House
I also keep the oven door open after it has been used. I remember my mother doing it many years ago.
Prenatal Vitamins For Hair Growth
Mary mentioned MSM. My sister knows a woman who took MSM. She also said it took 6 months, and had good results. Don't know how many pills a day she took - believe they mention taking 1 to 3 pills a day.
Putting on a Bracelet By Yourself
Great idea! I refuse to wear bracelets because I do not want to take the time to struggle with getting one on. Next time I even think about wearing a bracelet you can bet I will try your method. (Why have I never thought of doing that?)
German Potato Casserole
Kathy - thanks for sharing. Your recipe sounds yummy. Hopefully, I will have time to make it this weekend.
Keep Track of Website Information
I do what Debbie does - pieces of paper all over the house. One of these days I will get organized with my notes and recipes. Soon, I might add!

That was funny. Just emailed it to my friends. Have a nice day.
Website for Homemade Seasonings
Nice website, Bonnie. Thank you.
Wax Paper for Shiny Faucets
I can't wait to leave work and try this. I do not like the way faucets look if they have not been scrubbed.
Keep Track of Prices on Common Purchases
I have just started doing that. I must admit that I am not a good price shopper. What I think is a sale in one store turns out not to be. With my list (especially if I do not need the item right away) I feel like I can wait for the better price.
Hi Holly -- I also enjoy doing Sudoku. Sometimes I try to eliminate numbers by lightly indicating numbers which could go in each box. Of course, at times I have many & other times not too many. It can be frustrating. I always clip a few from newspapers & carry...
Oh my goodness - just magnificent. I am now packing my bags and will be visiting you. Get the coffee ready; I'll bring the dessert!
Use a Fork to Hold Recipe
I don't know why I never thought of that! I always try to keep the piece of paper with my recipe on it nice and clean. Great idea. Thank you.
My Favorite Sandwich: Three Childhood Favorites
The mayo/peanut better sandwich -- growing up (a long time ago!) was the lunch favorite for my 4 sisters and myself. Your post certainly brought back pleasant memories. Over the years, anytime I mentioned this sandwich, everyone said "yuck"; they had never...
Modifying Your Favorite T-Shirt
Love the look. Am going to try it.
Wedding Couple Collage
At my daughter's bridal shower 2 years ago, the gift that was talked the most about was a collage of her and her fiancee she received from a girl friend. It hangs in their bedroom - looks so nice. Great idea on your part. Will never be discarded because it...

Senior Dress Code - A Joke
Very funny. I can't wait to email it to all my "old" friends.
Medical Information Fact Sheet
Great idea. I wish I had done that when I was taking care of my aunt before she passed away. About a yr. ago when I had out-patient surgery, I had pertinent info written down. A woman I was sitting next to in the waiting room said she had never thought of that...
