FRUGAL FUN TIP! Tape glow sticks to a ceiling fan! When my son was little I glued glow-in-the-dark stickers to his ceiling fan, and he loved to watch it spin as he went to sleep. Now that he has grown up and left home that ceiling fan is in my bedroom - even fun for me to watch! LOL

How much do we really recycle? As for glass, paper and metals, recycling is the answer. But plastic recycling requires more virgin plastic to make something that really can't be recycled again. Refuse, Reduce, and Reuse is the answer.

Frugal-Freebies.com: Cross-Border Grocery Shopping -- On Saturday, we went to Niagara Falls, NY to go cross-border shopping - for the first time. I would say we cut our bill IN HALF - even without using coupons. I often buy store brand, but even buying store brand in the US Walmart was almost half-price - sometimes even more!

BEST soap scum remover!! This REALLY works well. After trying a few other Pinterest suggestions, I made this. It's odd, but it's GREAT. Make a vinegar "gel" by thickening vinegar with cornstarch. The vinegar CLINGS to what ever you spray it on...thus gives it more time to work. A little detergent cuts grease. I heated 1 cup of vinegar and 1 T corn starch in the microwave for 2 minutes. Add 2 T dish detergent and put it in a spay bottle. Spray. Wait 1hr. Wipe. Rinse.
