A few months ago I was visiting the Hip2Save site. Every once in a while some of the ladies that are part of the Hip2Save team share items they can’t live without. I always enjoy those posts because knowing that these gals are frugal means they must really love something to shell out money for it, especially if it’s expensive.

Well, this post was about Jamie’s love for her newly purchased bidet. I’ve always been curious about just what exactly a  bidet is and being from the states, we just don’t see many! After reading Jamie’s strong recommendation, I went over to Amazon to check out ratings and to get more information. Continue reading “My Bidet”


Martha Stewart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Many of us would love to own a Le Creuset enameled cast iron dutch oven. The problem is about $350 stands in our way.

I have found this great alternative from the Martha Stewart Collection at Macy’s. At the time of this writing, it has over 700 mostly 5-star reviews. That’s impressive. It’s available in 7 colors and retails for $179.99. If you watch for a sale on this great addition to your kitchen, you’ll be able to pick it up for a steal like I did. A couple of years ago, I paid around $50, not even kidding!

Fiesta Dinnerware by Homer Laughlin

I was introduced to Fiesta as a child in my parents home. In our kitchen cabinet resided a colorful set of dishes which made an appearance on our table at each meal. I think my mother purchased her set in the 1950’s which came in a box of mixed colors.

Brandless was founded by entrepreneurs Tina Sharkey and Ido Leffler several years ago. I personally began shopping on the Brandless website this past fall.

A unique feature of Brandless and one you can’t help feeling good about is the fact that when you check out at Brandless, a meal is donated to someone facing hunger through their partnership with Feeding America.

Greek Yogurt Maker

I have recently learned that the difference between regular yogurt and Greek yogurt is simply the removal of whey from the yogurt.

This Greek yogurt maker is essentially a high-tech fine mesh strainer. You can use it to strain regular yogurt from the grocery store and it will become Greek yogurt. Most people (including me) will use this gadget to strain their homemade yogurt.

The Best Electric Toothbrush!

Hello friends! Guess what? I love this toothbrush! It is the Oral-B Vitality Floss Action Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush and retails on Amazon for $24.97. It receives 4.3 stars out of 5, with over 3,100 reviews.

I have a smallish mouth, and it is so difficult to get those back teeth with most toothbrushes. Not this one, as it has a small round head that allows me to get every nook and cranny in my mouth.

Walking at Home

As I have focused on getting healthy while saving money this month, I had to share my favorite frugal exercise program for the last 20 years. It’s Leslie Sansone’s “Walk At Home” Program.

For many years, the program was only available on CDs to play in your DVD player.  Even though you can still walk with Leslie by playing one of her Walk Away the Pounds CD’s, she has recently gone on Youtube. Leslie also has an online program called Your Daily Walk that is $49.99 for a yearly membership or $4.99 monthly, and you receive different online workouts five days a week delivered to your email inbox.

Madeon Hard Lotion Bars

I first ordered a trial size of Madeon Hard Lotion Bars through a blog I read frequently called Money Saving Mom. Crystal raved about them, so I gave these lotion bars a try, and I have to say – I love them!

Madeon Lotion Bars only contain a few ingredients, namely beeswax, coconut oil, and shea butter. To use the lotion bar, you simply rub it on your skin. Your normal body temperature will cause it to soften immediately.

Plan to Eat

I’ve been a subscriber to Plan to Eat for the last several years. What I love about this particular meal planning service is that you are able to use your recipes, not someone else’s (which never works out for me).

When I’m browsing food blogs (too often) or see a recipe on Facebook that I want to try I simply click on my Plan to Eat Recipe Clipper. It uploads the recipe and photo to my personal recipe book page on the Plan to Eat website.

OXO Good Grips No-Spill Ice Cube Tray with Silicone Lid

This post contains affiliate links, and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

You may look at this ice cube tray and wonder what the big deal is. Allow me to share! First, and probably most significant, is the fact that there’s a silicone cover for the ice cube tray. What a great idea that is! You, perhaps like me, may have an ice maker in your freezer and think you wouldn’t have any need for an ice cube tray, cover or no cover.
