Thrifty Thursday***

Sorry All…I thought that I would have everything tested and working so that I would have the post ready for this weeks Thrifty Thursday. As it turns out we’ve been sick and haven’t had the time to get everything done so that I can give a proper review of the product that I’m going to talk about. If it works great then it will save us hundreds if not more per year!! So be sure to tune in on Saturday for the review!!!

In the mean time here is some thrifty tips:

*Next Weds the 24th is half off central Ohio Thrift stores (Ohio Thrift is my fav!) If you’re not in Central Ohio…call your thrift stores and see if they do this.

*Did you know that freezing your candles for an hour before using them makes them last longer?  Do any of you do this?

*Reduce your milk consumption; substitute dry milk in cooking, homemade cocoa mix, and in half and half for drinking coffee or tea. You can’t taste the difference!

*Easy kitchen fixes: if you run out of powdered or brown sugar no worries, here is a cheaper way! For powdered simply put regular sugar in your food processor. For brown sugar, add 1 T. of molasses to approx. 1/2 cup of regular sugar. Easy peasy! I usually make my own anyway…just cheaper!

*If you’re an avid reader you will love http://www.paperbackswap.com/index.php  You get to swap books for free with other members!!! I love free books!! If your done with a book, instead of it collecting dust…trade it in for another!

Let me know if these small tips help or if your interested in saving mulla in a particular area, maybe we can all share some great ideas here. Please be sure to visit again on Saturday, I’ve been so excited about this simple little way of saving and even more excited about sharing it!!!
