Thrifty Tip: 5 Great Uses For Chalk Around The House

Posted on February 6th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

We’ve had so much chalk–and pieces of chalk!–around the house with two little ones in our family. It seems that I always come to a point where I stare at a bowl or pile of chalk and ask myself if we really need it around the house at all! Well, if you have ever found yourself in a similar predicament, I’ve got some answers for you and all your little pieces of chalk! ;)

Chalk can serve some very practical purposes around your house. Here are just a few.

1. Deodorize your closet. Because most closets are closed, the air doesn’t circulate much. That’s part of the reason that there may be an odor or musty smell in there. But, it’s also the reason chalk works so well in your closet. If you put chalk in and around your closet, it will absorb any of those odors.

2. Stabilize a screw. If you are anything like me, then you have had many times of trying to keep a screwdriver IN the screw while trying to screw it into something. Well, just rub some chalk on your screw and your problem is fixed… hopefully, whatever you are fixing is too!

3. Keep ants away. I love anything that ants don’t like. So, apparently, ants do not like chalk. They won’t cross a line of chalk. Guess what, chalk can be your new all natural ant deterrent!

4. Stain remover. Chalk absorbs the oils in a stain and makes it much easier to clean. So, just rub chalk on your stained clothes and let them sit for 10 minutes. After that, just wash as usual and see the magic.

5. Prevent rust. Chalk seems to absorb a lot of things. So, among its amazing abilities is chalk’s ability to prevent rust. So, all those little pieces of chalk you were wondering about can be put to good use in your husband’s tool box or anywhere else in the garage that has a problem with getting rusty.

What do you do with your chalk pieces?

Thrifty Tip: More Ways To Use Baking Soda

Posted on February 5th, 2015 by Discount Debbie

Baking soda is one of those things… it never ceases to give me reasons to love it more!

I use it all the time. Aside from using it for baking, I use it as a household cleaner in my kitchen and bathroom. I use it to eliminate odors and to remove stains on a regular basis. But I have discovered even more uses for this lovely, thrifty product, so I thought I’d share them with you.

Cleaning produce. Baking soda makes for a quick, easy way to clean your produce. Just sprinkle some onto a damp cloth and wipe that fruit or those veggies right off. Talk about easy.

Clean brushes and combs. Just add about a teaspoon of baking soda to a small amount of warm water. Soak the brushes and combs in the water for as long as you’d like to. Then, rinse and dry. Done.

Brighten clothes. Add a cup of baking soda to a load of laundry to help clean and brighten up your clothes.

Put out a grease fire. Did you know that if you sprinkle baking soda by the handful over a grease fire, you can put it out? I had no idea.

Got dandruff? Just ditch your shampoo for a few days and rub baking soda onto your wet scalp instead. That should do the trick.

Iced tea. Use just a pinch of baking soda to reduce the bitterness and to remove the cloudiness of the iced tea. Who knew?

Weeds. Sprinkle baking soda into the cracks on your driveway and sidewalks to discourage weeds from growing.

Clean a toilet. To clean a toilet, just pour 1/4 cup of baking soda into the bowl and scrub.

Exfoliate. Mix 3 parts of baking soda to one part water to create a scrub. Apply to your skin in a circular motion and then rinse.

Isn’t baking soda fun? What do you do with it?

How to Not Get Stuck Living in Survival Mode

Posted on September 2nd, 2014 by Discount Debbie

Survival Mode

When living on a budget we sometimes end up in a state of mind that our family calls “Survival Mode.” It’s a state of constant worry about your finances that colors your mood about everything else in life. You feel your budget is tight now, so you feel your future is dismal. Cheer up! Nothing lasts forever. Not even Survival Mode. Here are a few ways to stave off those frustrating feelings until then.

Focus On What You Can Afford

Instead of focusing on not being  able to go to the movies, attend free or low price events. Rather than feeling guilty about not getting your child the latest and greatest toy take them camping in the backyard or canoeing at a national park. This won’t only brighten your point of view about what you can give your family, it will also teach your children to focus on the positive. Children are especially sensitive to Survival Mode and your example will reduce the chances of it affecting them.

Take Action

One of the best ways to beat the feelings of not having enough resources is to make a plan to make what you have last as long as you need it to. This could mean picking up extra hours, reducing what you use, or bartering with others in your community where both of you are getting something you need. It may even be that the only action you need to take is to tweak your budget. It’s a good deal better than tiring yourself out with worries.

Have Goals

Goals are more than just a way to give us a direction in life. They inevitably breed hope in something we don’t have yet. The object is not to get frustrated with not having your goal yet. Instead treat it like a puzzle that you need to work out and finish. Enjoy the process of getting to your goal as well as the goal itself.
