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. WOOT! I am on top of it today buddy! I saw this before I went to bed… less thing to do tomorrow. 🙂 And I would really like to have that nice, beautiful, blonde hair.

  2. Thanks for the linky, Andrea! I linked up a recipe for a delicious homemade 9 grain bread – it makes 5 loaves in under 2 hours without a bread machine. 🙂 Yum!!

  3. Thanks for featuring our chest freezer post! Folks might also be interested in our post about how to choose the right chest freezer.
    This week, though, we shared how we store the rest of our food! We save money by buying in bulk direct from farmers, but all that food has to go somewhere and our house is tiny. From a bookshelf in the kitchen to the cab of our truck, we make the most of the space we have!

    • I was slow to post today. I made bread for the first time as part of the frugal challenge, and it turned out amazing but turned my blogging world upside down. 🙂

      Inspired by Liberated Kitchen’s post last week, I posted a round-up of ideas for foods you can put in your chest freezer:

      I’m with Stacy on wanting Honey Bee’s golden sunshine hair. I was so inspired by her that I am going no-poo, and it’s been great so far! I am stunned at how well the baking soda/vinegar combo cleans my hair, actually.

  4. Post is linked at Sweet Swan Songs- thanks for all of the great content about becoming more frugally sustainable!

  5. Thanks for hosting! I posted today how to properly make an herbal tea.

  6. This week I posted a simple recipe for homemade coconut milk. Most canned milk has toxic BPA and most boxed milk has additives. Making it yourself is cheaper, more nutritious and delicious! Cheers!

  7. This week I am sharing a tutorial on how to get whey from raw milk. If you’ve ever been put off from trying this food because of the price, know that you can still find uses for it even after it turns sour!

  8. There is some great inspiration for frugal living here! I’m looking forward to visiting more of the links. Thank you for hosting!

  9. Good morning! Here’s my tutorial on my Easy Lace Shirt-which is more of a cape. It’s great project for the beginner or novice sewer. Thanks for hosting the party once again. Have a great Wednesday!

  10. Love your weekly link up. Such super ideas.

  11. Hey, Thank you for the link-up! We are making Pasta at Mosquito Creek Farm!

  12. Thanks for hosting! I shared my Antioxidant Power Smoothie and Chicken Curry Spaghetti Squash recipes this week.

  13. Hi Andrea! I’m loving the frugal challenge. This week I’m sharing my 10 Favorite Grain-Free Dinners on a Budget. Just because you’re saving pennies, doesn’t necessarily mean you need to stuff yourself with pasta and potatoes!
