my 'Green Art',recycled,reused metal earrings made from tuna cans! I added gem stones and beads to make it 'shabby chic' style. What do you think?
click link to se what yo can save on now if you want to be a frugal,smart,persisitant shopper. (hint) you don't need ot go to Lands End store or outlet to get shoes. try 'Label chopper' for the same thing for $ 15.! Accessories too are down. i know i make jewelry. I sold earrings of sterling silver and gem stone for $ 15, to a hair salon store owner, that normally costs $ 22! no, the cost of silver and shipping it did not go down folks. I simply want to sell what I have as is overstock.

Want FREE magazines,newspapers,books?


Save money by going to your local recycling plant and bring home lots of good stuff FREE! Today I brought home 2 bags of shredded paper to mix in with my cat litter to extend it. I also didn't get the sunday newspaper so I looked at it at the library and got 2 packets of coupons instead at the plant. I also got magazines. Two days ago I got a book and some other magazines. It saddened me to see books being thrown away as I know someone took the time to put their soul into what they wrote.

Today, I saved $64 at the supermarket,almost the amount I spend a week on food!
