    My daughter had to do a "rock project" for her science class and of course waited until the last minute to tell me so that meant we couldn't do a kick butt volcano. Instead we made treasure rocks with a bouncy ball hidden inside for each of her classmates to break open :) This recipe costs a...

    Ok, so it seems too obvious.... where to find excellent, interesting crockpot recipes? Why, the crockpot brand's own website of course!! Stumbled upon it today. It has hundreds of well organized, delicious sounding dishes that are a departure from the standard hunk-of-meat and packet of...
  5. Secondhand Shopping
    The area where I live now has only 4 thrift shops, so my frugal shopping is limited, but my imagination is not. A little paint, material and time will turn any trash to treasure. There was this flea market in Ill. I would take my merchandise( I was selling hair clips and bows) out to sell and...

  7. Homesteading and gardening
    I live in a flat in San Francisco, which is a house that was basically converted into 2 separate apartments. When I moved in (about a month ago) my roommates mentioned in passing that they and the people living in the other flat never used the backyard and it was very unkempt. I finally got...

    Yesterday we were able to pick up the keys to the 'new to us' house and start cleaning. Of course I was jealous because I had to go to school and that would Wendell to have all the fun. When I finally go over there he told me to go look in the closet. I did and found a wonderful old...

  12. Homesteading and gardening
    I just love my garden, and every time I go out and look at it, it's like a treasure chest. All the colors of the plants and fruits are like rubies, and emerlds to me. Some of the treasure is right in front of my very eyes, and others I have to dig for. I can show off my jewels to anyone. Some...

    I've never seen any posts on this here, but I guess it's worth a try. Does anyone do any trash to treasure craft projects? The 3 R's are Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and I try very hard to reuse what I can. I keep many things out of the trash for my art/craft projects -- all carboard, the mesh bags...

    ~I found a digital kitchen scale on the clearance shelf at Bed, Bath and Beyond. It was marked down from $30 to $15 because of a scuffed up box. I used my $5 off a $15 purchase coupon and paid just $10 for something I've been wanting for awhile. Yey!~

    ~I found a Crayola crayon maker at a yard sale today for $.25! It was missing the starter crayons and labels but in was never used, still in the box. It runs on a light bulb and it still had the cardboard insert where the bulb should be. DH picked up a bulb($.65)while he was out today. DS and I...

    Yesterday I didn't have time to go to all the garage/yard sales I saw, but I really wanted to. So next weekend I've decided to go scouting. We're moving in early October and we're wanting the new place to be more "home like" because the apartment we're in now is white bare walls and well, just...

The candle holder is for citronellla candels. stands abuot 3 ft high, but the bottom part is all broken. the top part looked great still. so i...

    Yesterday I was going through the boxes in the garage for the garage sale and found a box I haven't looked in since about 1980. In it was my 5 year diary for the years 1968 thru 1972! I was 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18 through out those years. I looked through it awhile then called my Mom, lol...
