Frugal Planner Pages

2010 is right around the corner! So all of you will be needing to change out your planner pages. Instead of running on down to Staples or Office Max and spending $20 or $30, I've got this simple idea for you!

Items you will need for this Project:
planner ($1- dollar tree)
scissors
hole punch

total $1

Start out with a dollar store planner of your choice. Take it out of the plastic sleeve.




















Open up to the center pages and undo the staples.



















Remove the unwanted pages. (cover, phone numbers, etc.)















Keep it open to the middle pages. Cut down the middle of the pages.




















Now you have the beginning of your new planner!





















On the step I took one page from my old planner and used it as a template for the hole punches.





















Punch all the pages.





















Now slip it into your old planner. Wallah! A new planner for a new year!





















Happy New year!!

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.
