Natural Frozen Fruit Bars

Waiting for Fruit

I have struggled the past year to try to eliminate high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) from our diets and treats including fruit bars and treats. It is very difficult to find sweet treats without HFCS and even more difficult to find frozen fruit treats. I will buy a few treats like the frozen lemonade and fruit popsicles during the summer, and sometimes I just make my own. Affordable Frozen Fruit Bars I was in Sam’s Club and found these Chunks O’ Fruti Fruit Bars. They are made with premium actual fruit and fruit juices. They have just a minimal amount of sugar added to enhance the fruit flavors. […]

Homemade Fabric Softener Crystals

Homemade Fabric Softener

You may have seen I was giving away fabric softener crystals from Purex last week. I love these little crystals and I wanted to know how could I make homemade fabric softener crystals myself. I have made my own homemade fabric softener in the past, but I like these little crystals. When I picked up the bottle to read the label  the first ingredient listed was sodium chloride. This is the fancy name for salt. Yes, they are selling you just plain ole salt that smells good. Well I know I can make something that smells just as good for less than half the price of that […]

How to Make Natural Face Toner

Face Toner

I have tween daughter and as her body is changing into the wonderful women I know she will grow to be, her skin is changing too. She has developed a little acne on her face, nothing too serious. She needs to keep her face clean more than just washing. I am trying to teach her the importance of hygiene to maintain not only her appearance, but her health. I wanted to find a way we could make our own face toner. I grew up using Sea Breeze for maintaining my skin. I wanted to find something I thought would be comparable for her skin. Her skin is a bit […]

Today I would like to tell you some benefits […]

How to Make Sea Salt Body Scrub for Radiant Skin

Body Scrub

Frugal indulgence is what this week is about. What better way to pamper yourself, than with a luxurious sea salt body scrub. This not only will exfoliate, but also provide a rich moisturizer for your skin. My skin gets really dry during the winter, so I need a little extra moisturizer during this dry time of year.  Let’s talk about exfoliating your skin with a good salt scrub. I like to use sea salt, since I have a Sprouts store where I can buy sea salt for about $0.49 a pound. It is super cheap and a great frugal spa ingredient! Sea salt is great for baths […]

Homemade Biscuits Recipe: and Pancake Mix

Homemade biscuits recipe

This homemade biscuits recipe is where my journey for making it homemade began. I had been purchasing those refrigerated biscuits from the store. Then I noticed all the extra stuff in those. In order to be more homemade, I purchased a box of Bisquick with a coupon. Then I wondered if I could still get biscuits cheaper by making my own. The women of the south and on the prairie didn’t have the luxury of just opening a box to make biscuits. They had to make them by hand and from scratch. So I knew this could be done. I did a lot of research […]
