SUPER Frugal December Challenge!

So far its been a week of the Super Frugal December Challenge

We have mostly ate at home. DBF has wanted to eat out a lot.. I have talked him out of it about 3/4 of the time.. lol

No lights have been on during the day.

No spend day 4/15

As far as the kill-a-watt I am still reading directions

Entertainment has been solely at home, this is great!

Still coming up with “Dreams” for the dream book- check back on monday.. This will be next weeks project :)

Hope all of your Frugal Challenges are going as planned


  1. Eating out is a big issue here. I want to stay home and Wendell is always wanting to go out. Today I came home and have been wanting to start supper for the past 90 minutes but he is not hungry. Wonder if the disappearing pizza in the fridge has anything to do with it?!

    Hope your staying warm!


  2. DBF is exactly like that! He's not hungry when i want to start making food.. then by the time i just don't want to make anything he's hungry!

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.


-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.
