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. Hi Andrea! Today I shared one of my favorite summertime treats: Iced Latte. It is really easy to make at home and will save a bundle over take-outs from the coffee house. (In our town, the only iced coffee for sale comes from a drive through and is served in a disposable cup. Avoiding the cups is another reason to make my own.)

    Thank you for hosting, and have a great day!

  2. I also shared a recipe for sardine salad from my iron site.

  3. Hi! This week I posted on how to save a lot of money and fossil fuels by eliminating energy vampires in your home. I also posted on how to deal with garden diseases organically, including two DIY disease-helping recipes.

    Hope you have a great week!

  4. I LOVE looking at the creative neat ideas people have! So Inspiring!
    This week I am teaching people how to make 4 Homemade Frozen Crock Pot ready meals in less than 35 minutes! Saving $$, saving time, and eating wonderful family meals with little work. 🙂

  5. Andrea,
    It is so fun to come and just read, read, read! thank you for being the hostess with the mostess! Blessings!

  6. Hi, Andrea
    Thanks for hosting once again this week. Great ideas here. I shared my tutorial on how to make a Hugelcultur raised bed garden — a low maintenance, naturally fertile raised bed made entirely from waste wood and grass clippings or animal waste. It is warmer than the surrounding soil and after the first year it doesn’t need watering. My method of building it is easy, too.
    Have a lovely week.

  7. Good morning Andrea,
    A pleasure as always to share my posts with your wonderful linky! Have a wonderful week! Rebecca @ Natural Mothers Network ( Seasonal Celebration Sunday) x

  8. I just love your site. I’m so glad that I’ve found you. I love all the natural and organic tips-along with it totally being ok to be frugal. I love there is no pretension about wanting to save money!
    That said, good morning! Today, I’ve linked up my Simple, Spicy Salsa recipe (# 97 ) that’s super easy to make and pretty stinkin’ yummy. It’s cheap to make at home and it’s good for you! Thanks for hosting the party and have a great day!

  9. Sharing an easy tutorial for replanting hanging flower baskets with tips about replenishing the soil and an easy-care flower that blooms all summer long! Thanks for hosting! ~Lisa

  10. Hi, this week I posted a Mexican Hamburger Soup — love how the burger gets stretched in this meal by using it as a soup, and it was delicious too! Also posted instructions on how to grow, brew, and flavor your own kombucha at home to save money. Those kombucha bottles are too expensive to buy at the store!

  11. Thanks for hosting again, Andrea! 🙂
    I’ve linked up three:
    1. Debt Free and I Know It – our funny music video 🙂
    2. Biblical Response to Lending Money – yes the Word does cover that
    3. Tie-Dye in photos…so much cheaper to do your own than to buy the clothing!

    For this week’s link up I’ve decided to submit my contribution to the Secret Recipe Club – are you a participant?
