home and tired out. and hungry.
I came home and had a glass of water, a cup of coffee with cream, a piece of bacon and some almonds, also half an Atkins bar...all low carb stuff, but it will hold me until supper.
have no idea what that will be.
that stuff you have to drink is terrible,right? the first glass wasn't to bad, but by the time that I finished the last glass this morning, I thought I would gag. 1 polyp, they will biopsy and let me know in due course.
as far as paper towels go, use rags and wash them in your homemade laundry soap...lol
seriously, we don't use many paper towels. Mostly rags, old t shirts, old mended many times even old washcloths and towels, can be cut up into rags. They may need a bit of sewing on the edges so they don't fray, but the knit items will not need that.
Any double knit pj's turning the corner from night wear to rags?
Any shirts that have been mended and are full of stains?
take the buttons off, (save them of course in a jar) and cut up the shirts...
especially old sheets have lots of use for them.
You can even make cloth napkins, we use those, and not paper napkins.
All these items save money, and just take a bit of time.
You can also use baking soda for toothpaste. easy peasy. Just put some in a covered container, and stick your wet toothbrush in there and brush away. Your teeth will come plenty clean.
ok, enough money saving thoughts for today. But, you can check out frugal sites and get lots of ideas. We incorporate some of them.
Also, if you can get the Complete tightwad Gazette or ebay, money well spent
I still buy toilet paper, and will not use handmade toilet paper cloths to use...ugh
but some ladies made their own monthy snitary pads. Just google. I think you can even use them for bladder incontinence, but would need a waterproof backing, like a plastic tablecloth, or something like that.
There are lots of ways to save money. You just have to find them out, and incorporate them into your everyday life.
take the free envelopes that you get in the mail, turn them inside out, and reuse.
see just a simple little thing could possibly save you a penny. But a penny adds up, when you add in all the other little things that can be done.
We do a few things, and many we don't but we couldeasily incorporate many more.
Like hanging clothes instead of a dryer.
If you can't hang them outside, hang them inside on hangers on your shower bar. You could even get a second shower bar to be able to hang more...
so many ways to save. and those little bits add up..\man, what a rant I am on...I need to re-read my tightwad gazette again to get those juices flowing again.
We have never had a lot of extra money, so saving where we can is just good common sense, and a good use of the money that God gives us.
ok, man what a rant...sorry girls.
I love being frugal I love doing things the old fashioned way because mostly they were quite frugal.
