What will you share this week? I am so looking forward to your submissions! Remember: My favorite posts will be shared on my facebook page!!!

Here we go!


  1. Thanks as always, Andrea! Today I linked up 2 posts – one on keeping a low grocery budget by shopping at Amish Stores. The other is Part 5 of a series on our efforts at renovating a round topped barn we moved to our property several years ago – where I introduce our barn ghost! Have a great week. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I shared our Pepper Garlic Rib Steak recipe. We got a lot of rib steaks with the last cow that we bought ( and came up with this simple, tasty way to prepare it!

    Thanks for hosting, Andrea!

  3. I’m sharing my all natural formula for curing cold sores immediately and in the future. The beauty of the recipe is that it only has 2 ingredients. This stuff puts Abreva to shame!

    Thanks Andrea!

  4. Sharing a post about how the simple things are best. ๐Ÿ™‚ Blessings! ~Lisa

  5. Thank you for hosting once again Andrea. This is really my favourite link-up as I love to see what you are experimenting with on your homestead each week. I am definitely planning to try your hair detangler. It would have been such a blessing when my daughter was a young. I’m going to save it to pass it on to my DIL, too, as I have two grand daughters that will one day actually have enough fine blond hair to need it. (One is just a week old.)

    This week I shared my explorations in using the pines that are growing abundantly on our homestead for herbal medicine. What surprised me as I was researching my article was the absolute abundance of uses for both pine and spruce, by the pioneers — from drawing salve, and basketry to violin bow rosin and cough suppressant. The pine tree is truly a miraculous tree for healing and homestead craft. And it offers these benefits to us for free. What an amazing gift!

    Since there are 34 different species of pine, native to North America, you probably have one growing close to you. And if not, the spruce has many of the same wondrous benefits.

    Thanks again for hosting Frugal Days, Sustainable Ways,

  6. As always, thanks so much for this link-up, Andrea! And thanks a million for sharing my cooking spray on your Facebook page – I’m new to this blogging world and you really helped boost my subscriber base! That link has been spreading like wild fire on Pinterest!

    Can’t wait to check out the links for this week! This week, I shared how to make hash browns in your waffle iron:

    Thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. There is so much wonderful inspiration here! Thank you for hosting such a great linky!

  8. I posted two this week: My review for the gardening documentary “Back to Eden” and a story about a recent visit to the grocery store.

  9. Thanks for another link party! Today,’m linking up a simple recipe for Easy Baked Chips. They are low calorie (compared to store bought), easy to make and aren’t fried! Hope you like it and have a great week!

  10. I am just so excited that I can make my own cooking spray! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been using a Misto sprayer from BB&B, but this is another great option!

    I’ve linked up three:
    1. Why I Don’t Soak Grains
    2. Life Insurance for Stay At Home Moms – a frugal choice in the long run
    3. Mama’s Sausage Macaroni – comfort food at its finest.

    Thanks for hosting, Andrea!

  11. Lisa Sanders says:

    I just have to say that your blog is the least frugal blog I have ever come across. There are so many great ideas on here that I spend hours and hours of my day soaking up information and then going out and trying to find the ingredients to make all of the fabulous projects. And when I am NOT on here, which is now rare, I am thinking about things to look for to see if you have it. Really, you are taking too much of my time away from Facebook, cleaning, and stressing. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m really praying you got the sarcasm in all of that. This has become one of my FAVORITE blogs, and I am visiting all the time. It is almost overwhelming sometimes.

  12. Thank you for hosting such a great event every week! I shared my Grain-Free SunButter Cookies and Butternut Squash Risotto recipes today. Be Well!

  13. Thank you so much for hosting! This week I skipped adding one, I am on vacation. Can’t wait to read all the other great posts!

  14. I didn’t want to share this in the linky, but I thought many readers would enjoy the Simplify Your Life series of ebooks that is on sale till Fri 4/20 at 9am. Lots of real food recipes, parenting guides, blogging tools and more. Enjoy!

  15. I found some great tips here this week! Love it, thanks for hosting!
