Crayon. Dryer. AGAIN! Are you KIDDING me?!?

After the last incident, where a crayon found it's way into our dryer, I have been ever vigilant about checking pockets.  Although it was great fun to spend hours scrubbing waxy stains out of clothing at the expense of my poor skin-less knuckles, I never wanted to have to do it again.

And then....TODAY!  I get home from a nice relaxing run to find THIS:


Him....it was him.

His defense..."It must have been in that ONE pocket I didn't check."


Now...this girl is trying desperately not to complain.  I mean..I realize I am a very lucky girl.  I'm married to $uper Man.  He's very helpful and very involved.  He washed, folded and put away 4 loads of laundry today.  See what I mean...he really is $uper.  

When he asked "Okay...so what do I need to do to get it out.?"  

I sighed, "Not today....it can wait."

Monday he will officially become a student of my class,  How To:  Get Melted Crayon out of Clothes 101.


(P.S. Roberto said I should give him more credit than I posted here.  He really did think he had checked every pocket.  Then I had to explain to him that sometimes humor is lost with too many words.  Poor guy.  He really is awesome...did I tell you that already?)

"Angry Birds" Cake

Yeah...we're pretty big "Angry Birds" fans around here. The "fever" became even hotter when we got the kids Angry Birds: Knock On Wood Game and Angry Birds plushes for Christmas.  Now we can't seem to get enough of them.
(I've become quite the master builder and they the master "knock-er-down-ers)

So it didn't surprise me too much when Little Red picked an "Angry Birds" cake for his birthday a few days ago.  

We googled and pinterested (Yep.  I make up my own words) and didn't come up with anything this cake decorating rookie thought she could manage.  Everything was made with fondant (including the characters), which I DO NOT do (I can barely handle store bought tub frosting), so I had to come  up with something else.  I packed all 4 of my XY's into the car and headed to Winco with this particular card (which Little Red picked out from the game) as inspiration.
Shopping for ingredients becomes a difficult task when you have a child with nut allergies (birthday boy) so we had to get creative.  The original plan was to use Little Debbie Nutty Bars (which I would still recommend using if you can) but turns out they are manufactured in a plant with tree nuts (he's deathly allergic to cashews) so we had to strike that plan and find another solution. We settled for these instead:
Now...for the birds/pigs.....  
We scoured the bulk section and decided on these:
It took a bit of time, manipulation, and a tooth pick, but I was really satisfied with the results.
The pigs
black and red bird

yellow birds

pigs:  green Tootsie pop, Tootsie rolls
black/red birds:  Tootsie pops, Tootsie rolls, sprinkles (for eyes)
yellow birds: dots in center (to form Tootsie roll around), Tootsie rolls and sprinkles (for eyes)

Now for the cake:
I used a regular 9 x 13 sized cake (you could definitely go bigger) and frosted and textured it, with the back of a frosting knife.  You could also try coloring coconut and sprinkling it on top (I didn't because my kids don't like it). 

Add some regular ol' kabob skewers to stabilize the structure (if using Nutty Bars you may not need these...just a bit of frosting to hold it together)...
 even from the back


Now....I have to say that I would STILL recommend using the Nutty Bars if you can.
Cream filled cake pieces were just not as stable (even with the skewers) as I would have liked them to be.
After falling over three times, from the sheer weight of the structure, 
we decided to let it rest.
 The kids thought that was pretty cool too.
("Just like in the game")
Whew...thank goodness.

The best part about it...
the entire thing was edible (unlike nasty fondant).
The birds/pigs were the kids favorite part.

and when they're happy....I'm happy.

It was a really fun project/cake.  I wouldn't hesitate doing it again.

So what do you think?  Any ideas on what I could have done to make it more stable?  I'd love some feedback!

"No...cuz you're not very stylish"

One of the BEST things about hosting a GIVEAWAY is getting a chance to test out the product.
Aren't these CUTE!?!
It's not very often I get the privilege of enjoying pretty things.

I put one of these fancies on tonight (the one with the gray ribbon) and my oldest, 8 year old G-McBabe, kept looking at me...baffled.

"What?  Don't you like it?"  I said.

Still staring...."uhhhh...," he stammers.

"Not me?" I ask.

He hesitates, "No...(and then...) cuz you're not very stylish." 

I feigned offense....and then laughed.

He's got a point.

I did try the necklace on with my gray Gonzaga hoodie.  Yeah...I'm cool like that.

What I took from the situation was, A. Even my 8 year old thinks these Paparazzi pretties are "stylish"
and B.  I need to wear them more often and change his opinion of ME!

What do you think?


If you want to be "stylish" too, be sure and enter the Paparazzi Accessories GIVEAWAY and have a chance to win one of these beauties for yourself.  You have until February 6 so hurry up already.


Shame on me for not doing my homework first.  Bad Melanie....Bad.

Anyone remember the little Food Storage Project I've posted about...and been working on.....anyone?  You know...the One Year Food Storage for $5 (ish) Dollars a Week?....yeah?  That one? 

Remember me telling you that we had to give a bit of breathing room for skyrocketing food prices (because I wasn't exactly sure how long ago the program had been written), hence the "$5(ish) dollar a week" thing, instead of just plain ol' "$5 dollars a week"?  Yeah...well.... the "ish" seems to be quite a stretch of the imagination.

As I've been out....researching this little project....I have come to a conclusion.  This little "program" is a lot older than I thought.  $5 a week...even $5 (ish) dollars a week just isn't going to cut it.  Not even close.  $10 dollars a week....maybe.  Maybe!


Time for a new "food storage" plan.  I can see it is going to take a little more work on my part.  I'll let you know what I come up with....as soon as I come up with it. 

Sorry for misleading you...it was not my intention.

Laundry Updates PLUS How To: Deodorize your washing machine

It's been two months since I first started seeking out tips to $ave money in the laundry room.  I thought it time I report back.

First, the Homemade Laundry Soap is working out fabulously.  Now, although I have never been a Tide snob, I do have certain expectations for the cleanliness of my laundry and this soap passes the test.  Which is fantastic...because it's $uper cheap and easy to make.  In fact, I'm making my second batch today.

Then, I discovered a way to get rid of static in the dryer by using a tightly wadded ball of aluminum foil.  We tried it for a while (and it worked great at first) but have since abandoned this idea.  As winter set in, and there were no signs of precipitation, things got really dry around here...and our clothes got extremely static-y.  The aluminum balls just weren't cutting it.  Plus, we started noticing some black/grey streaking on the inside of the dryer.  I don't think they were denting in....just leaving marks...and so we said "bye, bye aluminum balls" for now.  Shucks....I hate it when frugal ideas don't pan out. (if you tried this out....leave a comment and tell me how it went for you.)

One last thing to update on.

We've been using vinegar as a natural deodorizer/fabric softener, as a supplement to the Homemade Laundry Soap , for "soiled" loads of laundry (thanks for the tip livingrichwithcoupons).  It totally works.  I highly recommend it.  (Fresh smelling underwears and sheets makes for one happy mama).

Speaking of vinegar and laundry (I swear, do I ever have a chance to think about anything else?), today I wanted to share something new with you.

How To:  Deodorize Your Washing Machine

Have you ever opened up the lid to your washer and almost passed out from the stench.  I used to...all of the time.  Then, one day, I couldn't take it anymore and went about looking for a way to remedy this problem, without spending a lot of $$ on those brand name (expensive) washing machine cleaners you can find at the store.

That's when I came upon some pretty interesting information (at ehow.com).
In 1999, Dr. Charles Gerba, a University of Arizona professor, conducted a study on the cleanliness of Americans' washing machines. After washing a sterile washcloth in 60 homes, he found evidence of fecal matter and E.coli in approximately 25 percent of the machines. Dr. Gerba theorizes that laundry has become less clean due to fewer Americans using bleach and hot water in addition to shorter washing and drying cycles. Deodorizing your washing machine should be a frequent task not only to eliminate odors, but to kill the bacteria and germs left behind when you finish a load of laundry.
Nasty, yes?  Luckily, following were some tips on how to clean out said odors/bacteria....which I got to, right away.

First step: Pick your cleaning agent.....distilled white vinegar or bleach.

To clean interior (rim, lid and dispensers) and exterior of your washing machine:  Soak a cloth in equal parts distilled white vinegar (or bleach) and hot water.  Wipe all surfaces thoroughly. **Don't forget the rubber seal (especially on a front loader)**.  Allow surfaces to dry and resume normal use.

To clean the tub:  Start a normal wash cycle and allow the tub to fill with HOT water.  Once full, add one GALLON of distilled white vinegar (or 2 CUPS bleach) and allow machine to completely run through the cycle (washing, spinning, rinsing, draining).

WALLAH!  Stench free and sparkling!  For under $2.

Other tips/ideas:
*Leave the lid of your washer open in between loads to allow for drying/airing out.
* If you frequently wash in cold or warm water, consider adding at least one HOT water load to your weekly routine to prevent mold and mildew from forming.
*According to ConsumerReports.org, four common culprits cause odors most frequently in washing machines: using too much detergent, using fabric softener, washing clothes in cold water, and infrequent use. Modifying these habits may decrease the need to deodorize your machine as often.

Have a happy, stink free day, y'all!  :)

Custom Coat Hanger---Yes! It's finally up!

If you'll remember, several weeks back, I set out to find a solution for this problem:
I think you will agree that this coat rack is far to small for our families "needs".

I was inspired by Katie from Project: Possible and her post project: from empty wall to mud room to create something workable for my family/home.

I headed off to Home Depot and picked up an piece of scrap wood for $.87 and a round stick to cut dowels out of.  Then I sat on it and sat on it.

I sat on it because I realized that, while I loved her idea (and was SO in need of it's inspiration), it was not exactly what I wanted.  What I wanted was something a little fancier (because it would be a major decorative piece in my scantly decorated home), something that would last for a lifetime, and something that would easily accommodate our growing family (nope, not an announcement).

But...what I wanted was definitely going to cost me more than the $1.80 I had already forked out.  I so wanted this project to be $uper cheap.  Bummer.  What was a girl to do?

In the end, I turned from what was most frugal and, instead, went for what I really wanted, despite the cost difference.  (My mama always said, "Buy the best you can afford.")

At least I still used the $.87 piece of scrap wood. 

I sanded, painted, distressed, polyurethane-ed, measured, drilled and added hooks (just under $4 each)....and this is what I ended up with.
Yeah...it cost me more than I originally intended but....the results are priceless.

Where else are you going to find a custom made coat hanger with seven (yes, 7!) double vertical hooks, spaced 3.5 inches apart, in the precise color you want....for under $35 dollars?
Believe me...I looked.

And....despite our sincerely lacking carpentry skills, my husband and I FINALLY got it hung on the wall.
(See how nice and organized everything is?)
Now...I'm not going to lie...it may or may not stay up for long.

But, hey....at least it will look good while it lasts.

There's always plan B.
(What's a few more holes in the wall, anyway?)

$5(ish)/week Food Storage Round-up--Week 1 and 2

Like I told you to begin with, I will be reporting my own $5(ish) dollars/week Food Storage finds to give all y'all a better idea of what we are up against, with food prices on the rise. 

I went out shopping today for both week 1 and week 2.  Here's what I picked up (keep in mind that I have a family of 6 so I multiplied my weekly budget and items x 3):

Week 1
15 cans of Cream of Chicken Soup @$ .97each = $14.55
- $1.50 in coupons
Total =  $13.05 or $4.35 per 5
($1.95 under my families budget for week 1 or $.65 under per 5)

Week 2
24 cans Chicken Noodle Soup (substituted for Tomato) @ $.79 each =  $18.96
- $3.60 in coupons
=  $15.36 or $5.12 for 8
($.36 over my families budget for week 2 or $.12 over for 8)

The plan is to take the leftover money (for me it's $1.59 or $.53 per 2) and put it in an envelope or jar to Save for future food storage purchases. 

WEEK THREE is 6 LBS salt and $5 in small bills ($1's) so as the grocery circulars come out tomorrow, keep your eye out for any sales on salt.  You can also try your local bulk foods store (Costco, Cash and Carry, etc) and see what they have.

Have you been out yet?  What did you find?  Care to share?

Amish Friendship Bread

If you will remember, this is what I gave out for frugal neighbor gifts this year and, I must say that we, ourselves, have been enjoying it (every 10 days...he he he) ever since.

It's the gift/recipe that just keeps on giving and giving and....you get the idea.

What I like most about it is that it's cheap, it's flexible and it always turns out SUPER tasty. 


IMPORTANT NOTES:  Do NOT use ANY type of metal spoon, bowl, whisk, or beaters...
(see note* below).
DO NOT refrigerate
Batter will rise, bubble and ferment...
if using a plastic bag, let air out as needed.

1 pkg active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees)
1 cup sifted flour
1 cup white sugar
1 cup warm milk (110 degrees)
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water for about 10 minutes.  Stir well.  In a 2-quart glass, plastic or ceramic container, combine flour and sugar.  Mix thoroughly (or flour will get lumpy when milk is added).  Slowly stir in warm milk and dissolved yeast mixture.  Loosely cover the mixture with lid or plastic wrap...or place in a plastic zip bag.  The mixture will get bubbly, let air out as needed.  Consider this Day 1 of the 10 day cycle, or the day you received the starter.  For the next 10 days handle the starter as follows:

Day 1- make or receive the starter, do nothing
Day 2- Stir starter in bowl, or if starter is in a plastic bag, mush the bag
Day 3- Stir or mush bag
Day 4- Stir or mush bag
Day 5- Stir or mush bag
Day 6- Add 1 cup each flour, sugar and milk.  Stir to mix or mush the bag.
Day 7- Stir or mush bag
Day 8- Stir or mush bag
Day 9- Stir or mush bag
Day 10- Follow these instructions

If in a bag, pour the contents of the bag into a non-metal bowl.  Add 1 to 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1 1/2 cup flour and 1 1/2 cups milk.  Stir (with a non-metal spoon or whisk).  Measure one cup batter into four 1-gallon zip bags and give away, along with a copy of the recipe.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Add the following to the remaining 1 cup batter:
3 eggs
1 cup oil (or 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce)
1-2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 large or 2 small boxes instant pudding**
1/2 cup milk
1 cup sugar (some recipes don't call for this)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups flour
Grease two large loaf pans.  In a small bowl, mix together, an additional, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  Dust the greased pans with 1/2 of this mixture.  Pour batter evenly into the two pans and sprinkle the remaining sugar mixture over the top.  Bake 50-60 minutes.  Cool bread until it loosens evenly from the pan (about 10 minutes).  Serve warm or cold.  

*NOTE:  Because of the starters extremely acidic properties, the use of metals can cause a chemical reaction that messes with the fermentation process and basically kills the yeast (not to mention contaminating the starter).  There are some arguments as to whether clean, stainless steel can be used for the starters.  I don't use it.  I do, however, use my stainless steel beaters after the starters have all been divided up and placed in bags and I am prepping the rest of the ingredients for baking. 

**You can use any flavor pudding you want.  Try using one small vanilla and one small banana cream.  Try one large chocolate pudding plus add 2 TBSP cocoa powder for SUPER yummy chocolate bread.  The possibilities are endless.  You can find lots of varieties (like lemon poppyseed, banana or apple) on allrecipes.com .  

Today I tried 1 small box butterscotch and 3 boxes chocolate pudding...then added chocolate chips (pictured above).  SO YUMMY!

Helpful Hint (I got this idea from my mom):  When giving away to others, it's always nice to include the date of your starter (day 1), the date they will need to add ingredients (day 6), and they date they will bake (day 10).  like so:

Remember that if you keep a starter for yourself, you will be baking it every 10 days.  If you get tired of the cycle....give all the starters away and make some for yourself again when you are well rested and ready to go again.  :)

Happy Baking and Making Friendships!

One Year Basic Food Storage for $5 (ish) Dollars A Week--January

If you missed reading One Year Basic Food Storage for $5 (ish) dollars a week--Overview, head on over and take a look.  Otherwise, none of this will make sense.  :)

So...here are January's weekly lists.

Keep in mind that this list is for every 2 people in your family.  Adjust the food and $$ amounts according to your needs.  Also...remember that some weeks you may have extra....save that change in an envelope or jar for the weeks that you will go over, because it will happen, but it all evens out in the end.

Okay...and one more thing.  We do have to cater to inflation.  This "go around" is sort of experimental.  I'm going to try $6 a week for every 2 people ($18 for my family) and see how that works out.  I really have no idea.

Okay....I think that's all the prefaces....

WEEK ONE:  5 cans Cream of Chicken Soup
WEEK TWO:  8 cans Tomato Soup (our family is substituting Chicken Noodle)
WEEK FOUR:  20 LBS sugar
WEEK FIVE:  50 LBS wheat

So...happy Food Storage-ing this month.

Don't hesitate to report back with your questions or finds.

One Year Basic Food Storage for $5 (ish) Dollars A Week--Overview

I grew up in a home where food storage was taken very seriously.  My mother has ALWAYS been good at hording food and it saved our families bellies over and over.  When my husband and I had just had our first child, I became a SAHM and he made $7.75 a hour.  We relied pretty heavily on the food storage my mother had been building up for us (Christmas presents...he he).  Some weeks, I only had $12 or so dollars for fresh groceries.  True story!  Our food storage definitely saved us too.  

One of my "New Years Resolutions", this year, is to get a better hold on my year food storage.  It's looking pretty sad right now.  Something about dragging 4 kids to the store and pushing around a full cart while trying to wrangle them just doesn't appeal to me....so I have been avoiding it at all costs.  And it shows.  Like I said...our storage shelves are looking pretty empty and the task of filling them once again seems daunting, to say the least.

Then I remembered I had picked up this "Food Storage for $5 dollars a week" program at a church activity not too long ago.  Ta Da!  Perfect.  I can do that.  (I only wish I knew who came up with it so I could give them the credit...but I don't.  So...if it was you....thank you.)

The basic idea is that, for every two people in your family, you can build up a basic years food storage on just $5 (ish) dollars a week (because there are 6 of us, that's $15 a week, $60 a month).

The reason I say $5 (ish) dollars is that, as you know, food prices are rising.  This program is a few years old, at least, so we'll have to account for inflation.  My plan is to keep track of my purchases and report the present day cost to give all y'all a better idea.

By following this plan you should end up with:
500 lbs wheat
180 lbs sugar
12 lbs salt
6 lbs yeast
10 lbs honey
6 lbs shortening
40 lbs powdered milk
5 lbs peanut butter
45 cans tomato soup (we dont eat this so we will be substituting for chicken noodle)
15 can cream of mushroom soup
15 cans cream of chicken soup
21 boxes mac and cheese
12 lbs macaroni
24 cans tuna fish
500 pain reliever pills
1000 multi-vitamins
                ---for every two people.

Now...if you don't have the room to store this much food (we are going to have to get creative ourselves) you can adjust the amounts as you see fit.  The idea is to prepare yourself for whatever may come (unemployment, sudden financial hardship, etc) and to do it little by little so that it doesn't stress you out or strain your food budget.  The way I see it...something is better than nothing. 

Basic Instructions:
Each week you will take your $5 (for every two people) and purchase the items on the list.  Some weeks you will not spend the whole amountSave the left over in a jar to be used for the weeks you may exceed the $5 (like when purchasing wheat and pwd milk).

These basic staple items should be enough to sustain 2 people for one year.

Remember to add an extra $5 dollars a week and double or triple (or quadruple...or  he he) the amount of items being purchased for every two people in your family.

How does that sound?

Happy Hoarding!
