A whole box of wipes J_Kieviet? Wow, that's an amazing amount of wipes. Some un-paper towels would be a Great idea for her! I used to make my own wipes, the solution is easy to prepare (has mild liquid soap in it, sometimes glycerin, tea tree oil etc). Google for some recipes, you'll find tons of variety. It can be kept in a small spray bottle and just misted on baby, then wiped off.

Mmm fritatta. I want some for breakfast... I think we're getting fresh juice though, my mom's in the kitchen doing something.

Ysmeine, do you have any chicory growing near you? You can roast those roots for "coffee" too. Purslane is one of my absolute favourite weeds, it's also called pigweed which makes the kids laugh. It's very tender and delicious, even later on in the summer.

I buy the box of 40 cheap ones since the lid almost always gets lost, but still $1/week is $52/year - I'd rather buy paint and supplies than cleaning stuff.

saved $6000 today by closing out our cking acct. THE STORY thus far: ordered ck from checks unlimited at the end of last mth, required signature for cks well little ole brown decided to leave them *they went to memphis, and were left on the doorstep of apt, no note or anything, called today got tracking number from CU.com, then called bank and was told 'better safe than sorry' so 3 hrs, one rainstorm, later and new free cks are on their way AGAIN.  this time I know for sure they are coming to my house.  so that was my frugal today, didn't do any shopping in town.

got the daybed up last night, kids love it (once we finally figured out how to get the trundle to work it will go either 2 twins or 1 full when trundle is extended)
oh wait I did do something, I picked plums to make some jelly have them soaking now will fix jelly tomorrow.  we love plum jelly but I'm selfish and wont let the kids have any.... I'm a mean mama. Wink

So I wasn't really frugal, but sort of frugal, I had bought fabric for nieces party dress, but then I was told Island princess barbie, not the all pink barbie, so I went to town and found the fabric $2/meter but 50% off for the base, and the tule was .80/m for the majority, and $3/m but 50% off for the little extra bits I may use.  Dor a total of  $9, she will be island princess, maybe even little sis will get one, we'll see.  As for the pink, I'm thinking "princess of the piggy's" as she is currently CRAZY about pigs


On a side note, does anybody know of a way to make your own glitter fabric paint, it's way to expensive to buy it online, and nobody around her sells it.  thanks for any ideas, I bought solid blue fabric and it needs the glittery swirls on it now

So many great frugal projects have been posted this month, I canít wait until the 1st to do the drawing for the Visa Gift Card.

On a note that I am not so thrilled to announce, I am locking the frugalong thread down. It will still be available for everyone to view and browse for ideas, it will just not be available for new posts.

Although we have formed a lot of friendships in here, shared and learned so much, and have gone through hard times together, I feel as though this thread has moved very far away from what it was originally intended to be all about, Crafting frugally. Technically, this thread should have been moved to FOC Off Topic a long time ago, but I struggled and fought to keep us going alone in the pursuit of frugal crafting.

We have so many great crafty smart women in this thread, and I hope you will continue to post all around Craftster your amazing frugal projects so that more people can learn about the frugally crafting lifestyle. Right now though, I just donít feel like I have the time and energy to devote to our thread, and to keep us going in the right direction. I would not feel right leaving this thread being the one who started it, so that is what ultimately drove my decision to lock the thread.

I hope to see some of you on the FOC off topic Frugal thread
