I usually cut my old bath towels into smaller towels and old t-shirts that I use as kitchen rags and to clean everything around the house.
Great tips and I really liked the idea of saving change. I used to do it but then I started “stealing”~it for little things… Got to learn not to do it 🙂

Great tips! I also use the envelope technique – that is I take money out of the bank and divide it for bills (that are paid at the shop), gas, food, magazines and I know (after having studied my budget) that it is all we can afford so I have to make it stretch. I also have a piggy bank for extra savings that I use in times of trouble.
Very thorough. Congrats on your accurate budgeting. There were some nice ideas that I will try to apply to my life.
Great tips. I also substituted lamps but still haven’t noticed any difference in terms of $. Just in August…
We use fleece sheets which are really warm and the kids love them.
I have a pantry list and then I started to go round supermarkets and bought essential items. I wrote the prices on my list (a table with the different supermarkets) and now I shop where it is cheaper. I also bring it along sometimes when there are promotions to see if it is really worth it.
I also intend to start gardening and cook from scratch as much as possible… Happy 2009!
My baby is 6 mo and no problem. My oldest, now 6, started eating soup 4 1/2 mo and adjusted fine and he had colics since he was born. I’ll be now adding more vegetables like lettuce, and again because the doctor told me so :).
my baby just started on solids. what I do is peel one potatoe, one carrot, some squash and then add an onion or a turnip. cook it and blend it. I freeze in small portions except for that day and the following one. I also give him cooked apple or pear (he loves drinking the water where it was boiled – no sugar or salt used). It is really cheap and sometimes I double the recipe and freeze more – this was my baby’s pediatrician that recommended and though he spits a lot it is not very costly.
These are great ideas. Can we make a rag rug by changing the strips to make it longer and more colourful?
We have a leftover party everyother week. I sometimes freeze leftovers and on a given date, usually when both me and DH are working late I take them out of the freezer and make nice dishes (eg. fry rice with egg or almonds, cut spaghetti into pieces and add some kind of sauce etc.) that look good, with a nice dessert and we call it a leftover party 🙂 The kids love it!
Not bad at all! Though Tacos and brocolli would certainly find enemies in my home 🙂
Soup is always a must at our home and we usually have for dessert fruit cut into small pieces with yogurt. Everybody likes it and it is dinner… 🙂
Thanks! Now I just have to find cloves 🙂
