I'm so excited! We only have a D.I. in the town in live in. BUT, there was a commercial for goodwill on the other day, and I scoffed at the tv, WHY? do they play commercials in areas that don't have that business?-I thought to myself (seriously though, why must they tease me with a CVS commercial when we will probably never get one!?!) But at the end of the commercial, it named a neighboring city that is abouit 45 minutes away. SCORE!!

I had to wait until we could group a few errands together, I mean I can't drive 45 minutes just to go buy something now can I? Ok, I could, but I'd feel horribly guilty.

There wasn't a ton I needed. But a few things I wanted :)

Then I found out the same town has another D.I... so I had to check it out.

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.
