I'd say that the biggest thing that makes me waste money is how (pathetically) messy I am. Some suggestions for frugal crafts along those lines could be: measuring tape so you don't buy wrong sized clothes, a clock to make sure you are on time and don't do things like order take out instead of making dinner, any type of organizing bin to keep things in and avoid buying multiples. Also if the partners agreed you could do a stash buster for a small craft. It's like getting new stuff without buying a thing. I hope these suggestions fit the theme Smiley

oh man I just went through a had master 12 remove his old school clothes and I now have a large pile of red shirts, some almost new, sizes 10-14 kids.......anyone want a red blankets.....lol stenciled or embroidered, or even a cut down little girls dress, same deal. I used to always give this type of stuff to the op shop but seeing how much they throw away as rag I am rethinking that and wondering what to make with them......
I even thought of cutting them up to make a crochet rag rug for near the door, but red clashes with my blue colour scheme.....

Cool, have you got pics? Do you think this would also be possible with "useful" plants like herbs/veggies?

I bought a new teapot yesterday (a good one; one that I can use without spilling tea on the table while pooring... Roll Eyes) and desperately need some reusable teabags. I drink tea (herbal & green) all day long.
Maybe that's something to add to the list?

Oooh reusable teabags ... so made out of a fine mesh, I suppose?  Great idea!  I'll go add.

Awww, you guys are so sweet.  That's my naturally Type A tendencies coming out. Cheesy
