Who's being Frugal?

Get control of your summer water bill-thankfully we have a flat rate. But here are some tips for the rest of the world.

Is a package free grocery store possible?- the thought of this makes me giddy!

10 ways to stop wasting money- great post. Simple things a lot of people overlook.

Freeze homemade pizza-I'm terrified to try this.. I think I will now.


  1. I Love the Earth911 store idea! I'd love to see more stores offer this.
    Ahhh water- I try to conserve where we can- our suburbia :(...doesn't have gutters, we are in the process of do the gutter thing so we can set up a rain barrel. We have been blessed this month with SO much rain, I am sad we are not taking advantage of it. Other than that- I try- I have 2 teenagers- lots of showers in this house!
    Where else- our neighborhood HOA doesn't allow clothes lines (I know, I know ) so I have a drying rack set up inside, I manage about 1/2 of our clothes on it. Every little bit helps!
    I love your blog by the way!
    Have a beautiful weekend.

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.
