The Yard Saga

We are still working on our front and back yards… does one ever stop? We are converting our lawn to a dry garden. We figure the best way to save money is do as much of it as we can ourselves, take our time and propagate as many of our own plants that we can.

Last Spring we ripped out the parkway lawn and planted cactus and succulents.

Buying Green

I’d like to put forth an idea….. . It’s actually “GREEN” to buy upscale furniture.

Instead of buying cheap, disposable furniture, buy the best quality you can.  Instead of throwing away cheap furniture every few years into land fills, buy fewer pieces of better quality that you can keep long term.

Estate Sale Finds

I love good linens. I use them during the holidays for our family breakfast presentation as well as for a formal dinner. After the Holiday meal, I wash and press my linens. I have to admit, I actually like doing it….It has become a yearly ritual. Most of my linens were gifts or were inherited and tend to be older…. From the 1930’s-1960’s.

After a request from a reader, it dawned on me that I don’t see fine table linens much anymore.

Seek and Ye Will Find

I do a lot of online research and read a lot of newspaper and magazine articles. I am always perplexed by national articles on bargain shopping. They seem so limited in scope.

I find a lot of blogs and print coverage tend to think “bargains” are only found in thrift stores, garage and yard sales.
