I am looking for a vegetable garden expert for next Monday’s episode of Frugal Coast2Coast. Any suggestions? What gardening questions (vegetable or ornamental) would you all like to see answered on air?
When we moved into our house, I was thrilled to have beautiful hardwood floors. They are so classy and warm looking. However they do take a little bit of upkeep.

Not only are they flying us out… Keep Reading

Jax is the lucky winner of the Great Green Giveaway prize package! Her entry was chosen randomly-but here is her tip: I cut up some of hubby’s old worn out t-shirts that we use for rags and for spills. It has saved so many paper towels! Congratulations Jax!

I’ve only just returned from a week of vacation (family here, then visiting family-including over 14 hours of driving in 4 days-I’m wiped) so I thought I’d do a quick and easy post today highlighting… Keep Reading
