"Frugally Sustainable"

You know what's fun? Finding interesting and really useful ways to save money. I hate buying cleaners and have used white vinegar to clean lots of things, like the oven hood, the floors, etc. I found this great website, Frugally Sustainable, where I get great information and links to other blogs which have ingenious suggestions, recipes, and hints on using common, everyday stuff you probably already have or buy to clean and cook. I'm not a penny pincher by any means but I do get a kick out of finding ways to save money. And if I can save money on cleaning and cooking, it gives me more cash to by FABRIC.

Today there's a blog hop over there and you'll find dozens of useful website. I just started Weight Watchers a few weeks ago and this recipe for home made ice "cream" got me all excited. I started thinking of substitutes and variations and calculating points in my head immediately. So I'm about to go freeze some bananas so we can have this stuff with our Independence Day dinner tonight!


  1. Penny pinching pleasure! I love it.

    I know your interest in Israel and want to recommend In the Courtyard of the Kabbalist. I can't review it yet because it is a NetGalley read and isn't due for publication until September, but it is a LOVELY book by a fine writer. Check NetGalley for the ebook--I think you'll love it as much as I do.

  2. Jen! It's wonderful to hear from you! I will definitely check it out. I am reading Canti-cle for Liebowitz by Walter Miller along with a few other post-apocalyptic books which I will review later this month on the library's blog. I am fascinated by that genre. And it's not just my love for Walking Dead! I was into PA literature way before then.

    Take care!

  3. Yummy faux ice-cream recipe! Thanks for the link. I saw a tip for frozen banana pops today that you might like as well. Put a popcicle stick (or fork) into the end of a banana. Spread the banana with yogurt (using the back of the spoon). Roll this coated banana into granola or finely chopped nuts...or your choice of topping. Cover with food wrap (Saran, etc) and freeze. The staff of the TV Show were all chowing down on, should be worth a try!
