21st Penny Pinching Party

Friday, February 12, 2010

Welcome to the 21st Penny Pinching Party! There were tons of really great ideas last week, here are a few of my favorite (Don't forget to grab your "I Was Featured" button):

Domestically Speaking by Maryann was inspired by this Pottery Barn pillow. She cut up an old sweater to make her own cheaper Sweater Pillow.

Sweater-Knit Pillow Cover, 26"

Organize and Decorate Everything did a great job making this dessert display.


I loved Frugal Fundraising by Ballard Boys


How to Sell Used Books by Frugal Follies

Keeping it Simple made the cutest Valentine gifts with used cans. These could be used for Easter, St. Patrick's Day, and any other holiday too.

I loved this Simple Easy Bake Cake by Casa Haus. My Daughter got an Easy Bake oven for Christmas and has baking up a storm. It is great to have recipes that don't require those expensive mixes.

Frugal Home Design made this DIY Book Display
