    since I just started making the Duggars recipe for a total of $8.00 that will last me YEARS.. I do not know why anyone would waste their money buying commercial detergent? Please tell me why you would or wouldn't use the homemade version if you knew it could save you hundred's of dollars in your...

    I melted a bit of Criso and added some extract. Cost very little and was made with things in the cupboard. I put it in this pretty container from my youth Vintage AVON 1970's Collectible NESTLE by SassyAshleeBoutique It has two spots for lip gloss so I made one vanilla and one vanilla mint...

    I'm saving up to take advantage of sales of corned beef this month. I love it (especially for corned beef sandwiches) and it's too expensive the other 11 months of the year so I'll buy lots & freeze for future use.

    I find pennies, and other coins, tossed on the ground quite often. I love to pick them up. When I was little my Gram used to tell us if we found a penny (or other coin), it was our lucky day! So now whenever I see a penny on the ground it brings a smile to my face and, at 50 years old, I...

    I was rolling pennies from my coin jar and found the penny that has the wrong crown for the queen and no date on the front. It's of a special copper. It's worth about $50! The same coin of ordinary copper is about $3. After finding the $50 penny I found two $3 pennies right in front of me! Now...

    You all know you should be checking your pennies before they go in those change jars, right? Wheat pennies are pennies that have Lincoln on the front, but on the back say "ONE CENT" and on either side have sheafs of wheat. Some of these wheat pennies are worth quite a bit of money, depending...

    Pennies dated before 1981 are worth more than twice their face value if you take them to be recycled for their copper content. You get more than double your money! It is also not against the law to melt down small currency in case anyone was wondering. Just thought this was interesting.

    So I thought that to inspire my dh and show him how far saving a few pennies here and there go, I started a log of how many "pennies" I save us daily. For example, not drying my laundry this week and getting cheaper stuff than we normally get. I just started on Sunday and I've already saved...

    Donald Trump was once asked if he would get his change out of the vending machine coin slot. He looked at the interviewer like she was crazy and said "That's MY MONEY. I'm not gonna leave it around for someone who DIDN'T earn it!!!" Classic!

    Once a proud token worth saving and earning, the cent is now often tossed aside - and, increasingly kidnapped by cashiers

    I'm decluttering and cleaning as we prepare for a move out-of-state. I decided to cash in my pennies. There were 1086 of them, and the coin machine took about 92 cents as a fee. I decided to go on a little spending spree with these! I bought 3 pair of underwear and PJ bottoms for myself, all...

    Young Mary had a penny and the little girl was itchin' To tell her mum where it was from, she ran into the kitchen. "Oh Mummy Mummy!" Mary cried "I've earned myself some money." Her mother took time from her chores and said "Where's that from Honey?" Said Mary, "Well some boys from school...

    I do, I can't believe some people don't bother. I sure don't have money to throw around and those pennies do add up. I also pick up soda cans when I see them, heck those are a whole nickle just laying there. What about you?
  17. Home and Family
    Kids party favors needn't be costly, just a simple remembrance of the good time guests had at your child's party. Each of these party favors cost under $1 per guest, some only pennies apiece. Shop dollar stores and discount outlets to stock up on these clever party favorites. Use individually or...
