Pretzel Rolo Turtles (Gluten Free)
I make these every Christmas for my family and I love them! So easy to make and very little ingredients. I have also made them with the Hershey's Kisses in the white chocolate strip and Reese's mini cups. With the white chocolate kisses I top them with an M...
Budget Friendly Coffee Shop Flavors
Hmm, not sure about the Dollar Tree coffee since most of everything in Dollar Tree stores come from China or other countries where there are a lot of chemicals in them too. Your "flavorings" look like commercial creamers which are laden with very bad chemicals...
Recipe for Hamburger Relish

Hiding Jewelry Behind Artwork

Fixing a Homemade Cake That Is Too Sweet
Dependent on what flavor of cake you have baked, if it is a white or yellow cake you can slice it up and place the slices under a broiler for a few minutes to lightly toast the slices and top with fresh berries and a dollop of light whipped cream, or even a...
Rotate Through Streaming Services
I have Roku built in my television and a huge amount of free no fee streaming is available including many channels which specialize in a certain genre of movies or TV shows. I did add Netflix and Hulu just because I have a few shows I watch on them. I pay only...
Dollar Store for Food Items
Food items just like other items in the Dollar Tree can be tempting, however make sure it is something that is made and packaged in the US. I have heard of people getting sick from items they purchased at the Dollar Tree because it was a "product of" another...

Do you have a recipe which you use this canned corned beef?
Becoming More DIY
You will love the recipes and I think you may find you will never purchase those cream of something soups again. The books are a great resource for many other things you can make for a fraction of the cost of the ready made products from the grocery store. It...
Becoming More DIY
You are so welcome! I hope you will find them not only more economical, but great tasting too! I appreciate you comments!
Becoming More DIY
These recipes are amazing and actually taste better than the canned versions. The books are soft cover larger books and I have seen many of them in our local thrift stores here in my area so you should not have too much trouble finding them. There are several...
Becoming More DIY
Hi Lonnie! Out here in the west they are called "Grocery Outlets". I would do a search for that name on google and even if they don't have them in your area, you should come up with a few options. They are pretty common to find. I put my soup mixes in those...
Make Rice with Half the Calories
I always cook double and sometimes triple amounts of rice and freeze it for later use in zip lock freezer bags. It saves so much time on weeknights when I come home from work and want to get a quick dinner on the table. I get it out of the freezer in the morning...
Paper Towel as Coffee Filter Substitute
I have done this in the past too and was told that paper towels are treated with chemical absorbents so they will pick up and absorb liquids better and these chemicals are highly toxic to humans. So even though they do work great in a pinch, really not something...
I make something similar, however I add thin sliced ham or Canadian bacon to mine. Adding the meat seems to cut down on the "sweet" part of the recipe of the pineapple.
Extra Savings At Goodwill And Craft...
I hope this works for you because when I tried this with my Granddaughter and she took the second printed coupon in, Hobby Lobby would not accept it because I had used the same coupon which has a coupon code on it exactly the same. This does not work. The only...

Washer Will Not Spin
This sounds like there may be a belt broken. You can purchase a new belt from either the manufacturer or even sometimes local repair and parts places have them in stock. They are fairly easy to replace yourself.
Name Ideas for On-line Interiors Shop
First I want to know the address of your shop!!! My kind of products! Definitely something French like. Such as "magasin d'antiquités" which is French for "Antique Shop". Pick a name in English you like and just translate it to French.
Save Containers for Leftovers
I love what you are doing and my hat is off to you for your kindness. However I do want to bring up one item that a lot of people do not think of. Packing the food in those containers is thrifty and I even do it. However no one should ever heat the meal while...

Buy Now Pay Later at Fingerhut.com
If more than one person posts a negative feedback on Fingerhut, then buyer beware because it is all true! I too decided to use Fingerhut for an item and ended up paying more than double of what I could have purchased it for if I had just saved my money and...
Recipes for Hot Sausages
Most sausage recipes use more hot pepper flakes in a spicy version of sausage. Sage is one of the ingredients, however using more will only make the sausage have a bit more robust flavor, not really adding any "spice" flavor to it.

This is a great sauce for shrimp or fish tacos too! This is one of the layers in a Mexican 7 layer dip and it is also yummy!
When Are You Being Too Frugal?
I have seen many "frugal" posts here on TF which to me goes way too far on being frugal! I think as in anything, you need to find a balance in what you reuse and keep. Dryer sheets: I don't even use them anymore due to the chemicals they contain! I use flannel...
Peppermint Oil for Mice Control
Other than your house smells like a peppermint stick, this method DOES NOT WORK! I have tried this idea several times and I have not noticed one bit of difference and to be honest I think they got worse. The sweet smell seems to attracted them!

Use Vaseline for Young Looking Skin
I understand everyone wants to ward off wrinkles as much as possible, however please keep in mind that Vasaline "Petroleum" Jelly has that name for a reason... it is from a petroleum base. Not safe to use on your skin! For those who claim to use this product...
German Sausage Dish
My family has never been big sauerkraut fans. So when a recipe calls for sauerkraut, I substitute shredded green cabbage for the sauerkraut. I have used this recipe in various forms for years and put it in a crockpot and it is awesome in the fall and winter...

Knorr Box Country Chicken Recipe
this link did not work. However I found a site that did: Aunt Bee's Recipes - http://www.auntbeesrecipes.com/2016/01/country-french-skillet-chicken.html
Freezing fried foods can be dangerous from what I have been told. The oil or grease can turn rancid and make you sick. Mashed potatoes can be safely frozen as long as they are sealed in an airtight container.
