Thrifty Gardening Tips

Posted on July 30th, 2014 by Freebie Felicia

thrifty gardening tips

Gardening can be a therapeutic and productive pastime when done correctly and frugally. Here are a few tips to keep the cost down.

Seeds

Seeds are much less expensive than a young plant. You can get them at dollar stores, grocery stores, and even at pharmacies. Learn to read the back of the packet to help you pick out the right seeds for the time of year that you will be growing plants in your area. The package will also give you directions on proper care and let you know if your plant is an annual (lives for the season only, must be replaced annually) or a perennial (comes back year after year).

Create More With What You Have

When gardening it’s nice to only have to buy the plant once. This is usually possible by using your first plant to grow other plants of the same type. Learn to take cuttings and to collect seeds. There are plenty of posts on Pinterest and videos on Youtube to teach you how to multiply your one plant into many.

Compost

Instead of throwing out those biodegradable left overs throw it in a compost bin outside. Compost is a great way to create a rich loam in which plants thrive. With proper care a compost heap will not smell. Using compost also reduces your amount of waste and even makes what you would consider trash useful.

Planters

Don’t buy new planters. Instead use an old kiddie pool, wagon, or even an old boot. If you have children just growing out of sippy cups and toddler bowels, these are great for planting herbs. Just create a way for water to run out of the bottom of your planter so you don’t drown your plant when watering it. (A drill and drill bit are the easiest way to form drainage holes.)

Child and Pet Safe

I don’t mean that the plants you grow are safe for your children and pets to consume (although that is highly recommended as well). I mean make sure your plants are safe from your children and pets. Hang them from porch rafters. Fence your garden off. This could save you in medical and vet expenses, but can also save you from needing to replace half your garden.

Top 8 Things Replaced By Your Smartphone

Posted on July 29th, 2014 by Discount Debbie

smartphone
Phone technology is getting to a point where we may not need other electronic devices other than our phones. They have many tools and uses. Here are some of my favorites.

1 – Calculator Anything from working out a budget to figuring out the amount you should tip can be done with your phone calculator. You will most likely have it with you while shopping, so you can keep track of how much your groceries are costing you before you get to the check out lane. As long as you have a charged phone with you there is no need to buy a basic calculator again.

2 – Alarm Clock This could include any type of time device. As long as you have a phone, there is no need to buy a clock or a watch unless you are one of those people that need a back up alarm. Watches and clocks are becoming simply a form of decoration for home or wrist.

3 - Entertainment Most phones can now play music getting rid of the need for any portable music device. Some you download your songs to. Others you log into your favorite music website using the internet. Our phones also have big enough screens for us to enjoy videos, and television, as well as games.

4 – Communication Naturally the phone has become the main way we communicate with each other. We can call each other, text each other, and email each other from the little device the size of our hand. We can even make our phone calls with live video feed.  We can also access our social media using our phones.

5 – Camera Camera use on a phone doesn’t just mean still life photos anymore. We can also record video with our phones.  These aren’t horrible cameras either. The have pretty good resolution and take great shots. Plus, going back to communication, it’s easy to share photos with family and friends without the use of the postal service.

6 – Internet Access Many phones don’t just access email anymore. They give directions, show maps, and connect to search engines. In addition to the before mentioned communication and entertainment uses of the phone, you may not need an actual computer for much more than a storage device or printer from time to time.

7 – Apps There are also helpful tools that you can now download with your phone. My particular favorite is the flashlight app. As long as I know where my phone is when the lights go out I don’t have to go searching for the flashlight I haven’t used in three or more months.

8 – Planning Our phones now also have notepads and calendars built into them as well. They can serve as our planners and even remind us of what is scheduled.

What’s your favorite use for your phone that has replaced something else?
