18th Penny Pinching Party

Monday, January 25, 2010

Thank you to everyone who participated in my Penny Pinching Party last week. Here are some of my favorites:

Who doesn't have one of these old glider rocking chairs or know someone with one? You can often find them at yard sales and thrift stores if you don't already own one. I just LOVE what Keeping it Simple did with hers!



She also posted a tutorial on how to transform an adult tie into a child's tie.
I Refuse to Recede is a blog by a man trying to be thrifty. In a blog world filled with women, it is refreshing to get a man's perspective on thrifty living. He is into ties and scored a ton for 38 cents each and will be doing a Tuesday Tie Trivia about each of his ties every week.

Fun to Craft posted a tutorial on how to make a Valentine Burlap Wreath. The ribbon and decoration can be switched out for other holidays too!

Taija's took this frame:

Just Devine Style posted some very cute Valentine gift card holders. Just go to her blog to print them out and make them for free!

I LOVE these family blocks that Chris, Erin and Jayce made! This is a toy that I wouldn't want my kids to put away.

18th Penny Pinching Party!
*Add the permalink to the specific blog post, not your general blog address.
*Link back to the party from your post so everyone can join in the fun!
If you link back to me, I may feature you when I highlight my favorite Penny Pinching ideas next week.
*You have until 1 am am MST, Thursday to get your link up.

*This is a Wednesday blog party, but I like to start MckLinky on Tuesday night since a lot of us moms are busy getting kids ready for school in the morning and taking care of little ones. MckLinky will start at 8:00 pm MST Tuesday night.
