Fabulous Baking Soda

Banking Soda has a ton of uses! Not just baking. I using it for scouring messes in the kitchen. Freshening up the litter box and laundry!




I bought this 5 lb bag at Sam's Club for about $5. But check your local warehouse store such as Winco. I can get bulk baking soda for about $.30/lb. So that is about 5 lbs for $1.50!! BIG savings!

I re-used an old spice container and filled it with the baking soda.


When you have a mess, such as stuck on food on pans or the counter just sprinkle on some baking soda spritz it with your vinegar/water mixture. Let sit and then wipe right off!








I also use baking soda to freshen up the litter box.

Ingredients:
~old spice container
~baking soda
~essential oil

Another re-used spice container.

Fill it up with baking soda.

drip in 10-15 drops lavender essential oils. Shake up.


This truely smells amazing. I also use it as a carpet freshener.
Sprinkle on the carpet. Vacuum up. Wala!




Lavender Essential Oil- purchase at any vitamin store.




















Always be sure to label your baking soda. This is not to be used as a baking ingredient!!



















I highly suggest this book as a great reference: Baking Soda By: Vicki Lansky

The winds of Change...

There came a time in our lives when our planning just didn’t make the cut. We recently moved in with family due to Chevy Man injuring his foot. I know a lot of you will understand that when you live paycheck to paycheck there just isn’t enough money to put aside for a rainy day. Now I am learning to pinch my pennies even harder than I did before. Chevy Man was in an accident on September 24th with a friend and injured his foot. The first doctors told us he broke his ankle and put him into a cast and on crutches for 8 weeks, with possible surgery. I was relieved that he wasn’t hurt more than he was, but what were we gonna do for 8 weeks!?!I called my Grandma and asked if it was alright if we stayed with her for a while. We were planning on moving to this area anyways at the end of the year so that just moved us faster and in a little less desirable situation than we would have liked. But I am so very thankful for my family. They are amazing.I packed all of our belongings into a 10x10 s…

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?




How to Make Buttermilk From Regular Milk

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.




How many times have you started making something only to realize that little container of buttermilk you bought 6 months ago is expired. Has it really been in there that long?

Here is a quick way to make buttermilk out of regular milk.

Ingredients:

-Milk (just under 1 cup)
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

Put the vinegar (or lemon juice) in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup. Then fill it up to the 1 cup line with milk.

Let it stand about 5 minutes. Then you have Buttermilk! It gets kinda chunky, this is normal. Now you can use it in any recipe just as you would buttermilk.
