Friday, my DD and I stopped at our local Goodwill store. She wrinkles her nose when I pull in the parking lot and was very embarrassed to see kids from school in the store too. BUT.. she was very happy to come home with 2 pairs of designer jeans for $6 each. Aeropastle and Hollister! Shhhh... please do not tell her friends, you may embarrass her even more.
Enjoy this video I found posted at this blog.
Here is a link to Amy's book. In true frugal style, try your local library before purchasing this book. I have my own copy that I bartered for several years ago.

Once the fat is melted he added some very cheap bird seed he bought in bulk and dried berries from our yard seen here.
He then poured the hot fat mixture into tray we saved for $1.00 frozen meal. By setting it on the snow, the trays did not melt when the hot suet mix was poured into them. He left them there to harden for a little while.
This is what the finished suet looked like. the large pieces were cut in half to fit into out suet holders. We had 7 blocks of suet when he was finished. Next time he would buy more fat at the grocery store to make a larger batch. A larger batch would also bring down the costs.
Cost of Home Made Suet
purchased fat - $1.90
saved fat from meat cuts - free
bird seed - $.50
dried berries - free
Total = 2.40
That brings it to just over 32 cents per suet bar.
The cheapest I ever see them in the store is about 69 cents at the scratch and dent store. These were more than half the price. This will last us through the rest of the winter.

Bounce Dryer Bar - 2 Month Outdoor Fresh, 44-Use Box Carton and Plastic Clamshell (Pack of 6) - I was sent a high value coupon from the company to try this dryer bar months ago. I was very skeptical about it but ended up buying it anyway since I could try it very cheap with the coupon. That was 3 months ago. Today I can tell you, I love this thing! I am just now at the point of having to replace it. I love not having to think about dryer sheets! It is much cheaper that liquid fabric softener too! I hang laundry outside for 6 months out of the year. The other 6 months, I will be using this dryer bar for my form of fabric softener. I would buy this even without a coupon!!
I get a small percentage of all sales from Amazon whenyou link through this blog. All opinions are truthfully mine though.

This is the adult pizza. Half with just turkey bacon and the other half with turkey bacon, onions, mushrooms and green peppers. This was also enough to serve 1 person for a 2nd night.
It passed the test! We all liked it pretty well. Was it as good as pizza shop pizza? NO! BUT... it was still enjoyable and much healthier! I think we will do this again. I had enough to serve this a 2nd night by just adding a few healthy side like side salads and fresh fruit to round out the meal. It certainly was frugal!
We Are THAT Family - my pizza is also posted here!

Saturday night we pulled some fruit from our freezer that we grew last summer. This is peaches, blueberries and strawberries.
We added a pear, an orange, an apple and grapes that we had here fresh.
This juice was my favorite so far! Look at the smiles on their faces! They all loved it!
We are trying to eat healthier this year. This has been a great treat for us. We love seeing what the next mix will taste like. We are trying to buy in season fruits and veggies mixed with things from our freezer that we grew ourselves. We have found some great sale fruits and veggies too. Who cares if things are bruised when all you are doing to them is juicing them.
I make a small percentage of money in the form of an Amazon gift certificate from any Amazon sales when you link to Amazon from my site. Amazon has not paid me to buy this juicer or to talk about it.
