Thrifty Tips for September 13, 2012



I got married a little over five years ago, and we did things pretty small.  We had an outdoor wedding and I bought sweet little sandalwood fans that I decorated with ribbon and silver hearts.  I still have LOTS of those fans.  Often after a wedding, the bride is left with favors and decorations that may be packed away only to be lost at some point or tossed.  Here is a place where brides can sell their left over decorations and favors.  It is called Ruffled.  Ruffled is also a great place where brides-to-be can get wonderful wedding ideas and DIY tips for the big day.


Chicken breasts and thighs are on sale at Albertsons, so are Hunts canned diced tomatoes follow this recipe for Bruschetta Chicken Bake to make a different chicken dinner out of these sales items and a few inexpensive store staples.  The recipe calls for 2 cups of shredded mozzarella, I go for 1 cup to lighten the calories.

The books listed were free at the time of my posting.  They may not be now so check the price before you buy.
