Frugal Tip Tuesday

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.
Have you missed earlier tips?


A great way to organize like items in a common place is a lazy susan. I found a two pack at the dollar store. I use the one below next to my stove with all the commonly used spices. Easy to find and not taking up a lot of room.



I have salt, pepper, basil, baking soda, steak seasoning, onion salt, garlic powder, cinnamon and sugar. If I need extra space on my tiny counter I can just grab the lazy susan and move it elsewhere in one easy movement.

  3. What a great idea; I need a lazy susan! I have a spice rack, but the bottles aren't sealed well, and the spices tend to get all clumpy. So I end up just using the regular spices, but they are all jumbled in my pantry. Thanks for the tip.

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?

One Month to love book review

This book is divided into 30 short chapters that cover all different aspects of relationships in your life.

Such as focusing on the person that you actually with. In the age we live in, it is often easier or more convenient to 'play' on our phones or computers, instead of paying attention to the people that matter the most.  Each chapter ends with a challenge which includes questions or things to think about and consider. While much of this book is just reiterating what we all should be doing to maintain and straighten our relationships there are some surprising ideas. One that stood out to me is the chapter entitled. ' Practicing the art of risking awkwardness'.  Included in this chapter is the idea of swallowing your pride and facing the uncomfortable stage where something has happened and usually run …
