This project was inspired by my own unfortunate patio table accident. I was setting up our old patio table furniture outside in the spring. When I tried to put the patio umbrella through the hole in the middle of the table, I lost my footing. Because the umbrella pole was only partway in, it fell sideways. The glass top couldn’t handle the pressure and, as a result, shattered into millions of tiny pieces.
There’s a good chance you have the ingredients you need to make this simple chili– even if you’re running low on food at home.
It only requires 6 ingredients!
Inspired by current events and the need for my family to self-isolate, I decided to do the “Food On Hand” Mega Meal Plan Challenge. After inventorying all of our food, we were able to make a meal plan that should last us at least 3 more weeks – without going grocery shopping!
In this post, I share how you can save money on a refrigerator. Our family bought our refrigerator for half off the retail price simply by shopping online. We literally saved more than $1,600 on a brand new refrigerator!!!
Have you ever struggled to keep some plants alive in your garden? Do you painstakingly place them in the ground, only to watch them slowly wither and die? And have you wondered why some kinds grow well for you while others are constantly sickly? Do you wish you could figure out the secret sauce to growing plants successfully in your garden every time? What you probably already know is that all plants need some combination of three things to grow…
If this is your first time starting your veggies from seeds, you don’t need to spend a fortune to be successful. In fact, it can be a rather frugal undertaking.
For starters, save your money on seed starter kits.
Instead of spending money on seed starter kits at the store, you can easily make your own!
And you can make them with items you probably already have in your home right now!
Decluttering our entire home is one of my new year’s resolutions (again). To help me reach my decluttering goal, I’m reading “31 days to a clutter-free life.” This post is about what I did to declutter the kitchen during week 2 of reading.
Decluttering is happening at the Smith house this month. If that’s one of your goals for this year too, please join me as I concentrate on decluttering for a month. Check out how week 1 went and see before/after photos.
