  1. Homesteading and gardening
    I was going to buy a shovel and a garden rake. Now I don't have to! I went up in my "attic" today to investigate. I found 2 shovels (worn but workable) one short, one regular, a flat shovel thingy, and a garden rake!!
  2. Kitchen Basics
    What do you consider kitchen tools that every frugal cook should have? Let's exclude electric appliances and just go for tools and essential cooking supplies...cookware, bakeware, utensils, gadgets, etc. I'll start Measuring cups and spoons.

  5. Home Decorating
    My DBF has not done much decorating in his living room with the exception of a new odds and ends of knick-knacks and pictures of his granddaughters. He has a modern clock and a small shelf on one short wall. One wall which runs the entire lengh of his living room (prob. 15 ft) has nothing on...
  6. Envelope system
    so as part of my yearly tax refund spending spree (now totaling about 100) I'm thinking of buying 3 sets of dave's budgeting envelope system. (one for me, one for my most bestest friend, and one for my big brother) Is anyone else using them? They look really well made and easy to use. I've had...
  7. Kitchen Basics
    Today I went grocery shopping. I realized that I needed a funnel for refilling the mustard, ketchup and dressing containers. You know what? I needed these all along and I didn't realize it until today. Not only does it allow me to reduce the amount of smaller packages I need to make my meal...
  8. Question and Answer
    I have some electric tools in the kitchen but it seems I fall back on the simple stuff most of the time. For example, I am doing some pumpkin right now for the freezer. My main tool is the steamer. I am using a regular knife, and I was using a potato masher to get it ready to go in the baggies...

  11. Homesteading and gardening
    We have a small garden shed attached to dh's workshop. It was suppose to be only a gardening shed, however much of his wood is store there has well.
  12. Homesteading and gardening
    We use a rake, hoe and spade shovel the most. Dh also tills the garden with a tiller. I prefer using the shovel, however the tiller gets it done a whole lot faster.

  14. Kitchen Basics
    I really like the Pampered Chef line of cooking tools, but have to find a way to justify their expense. Two, however, pay for themselves! 1. Kitchen Spritzer-- you put oil in it and pump the little pump on top. It sprays oil out--you own homemade Pam for a few cents! I figure it pays for...
