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. sorry that the picture is not the greatest in this post. But it is by far the repurposed creation I am most proud of!

  2. Hi, again, Andrea
    Thanks so much for hosting Frugal Days, Sustainable Ways again this week. I shared my post on harvesting and preserving Arnica for use as a wound and injury healer. In my research I found that there are reports in the literature of this beautiful flower, healing the paralysis of stroke, too. No wonder this plant is so famous as a healer. It is prolific right now in my community.


  3. Hi! Hope you had a great Mother’s Day weekend. This week I posted on stinging nettles, including a recipe for nettle patΓ©.

    I also posted on why we need to label Genetically Modified foods, which most people don’t know make up 70% of all foods on grocery store shelves and have never been tested for human safety. California is poised to become the first state in the nation to require labeling of GMO foods, and WE REALLY NEED HELP to beat Monsanto. If the labeling initiative passes in CA, the rest of the nation will follow.

    Have a great week!

  4. Thank you for the feature πŸ™‚

  5. This week I shared a few posts, including how to make homemade stevia extact, how to use a smartphone to save money, how to make raw vegan sugar free gluten free chocolate balls, and how to make homemade wonton soup, including gluten free and regular versions.
    I just have to say, the post on homemade washing soda that everyone loved, was based on a blog post of mine, and in some paragraphs, copied word for word from my post without acknowledgment, which wasnt very nice.

  16. I learned more new things on this weight-loss issue.
    A single issue is that good nutrition is tremendously vital while dieting.
    A huge reduction in fast foods, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sugary
    foods, pork, and whitened flour products may be necessary.
    Possessing wastes harmful bacteria, and poisons may prevent targets for losing fat.
    While specified drugs in the short term solve the condition, the nasty side effects are
    not worth it, and in addition they never give more than a
    temporary solution. It is a known indisputable fact that 95% of dietary fads fail. Thanks for sharing your notions on this site.

  17. Thank you for your whole efforts on this website.
