29th Penny Pinching Party

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Since I didn't feature anyone last week due to McKLinky going down, I am featuring my favorites from the last 2 Penny Pinching Parties:

I am definitely trying this one by The Common Cents Home!
She uses vinegar in her carpet cleaner and it works better than carpet shampoo because it gets the carpet clean without leaving a residue behind.

Toddlers are very visual which is why I love these bookshelves by Texas Monkey
She was inspired by Frugal Home Designs who posted detailed instructions on how to make them at my Penny Pinching Party back in January.

I was very taken with this Vintage Clock Face by Lemon Tree Creations. It is a Pottery Barn knock off which is probably why I love it so much.

I have seen a few headboard benches on blogs, but I really liked this one by Sparta Savings. I love how she made it a project for her son to do too.

My youngest no longer eats baby food, but I kept most of the baby food jars because I just know they will come in handy one day. The 30 Girl has the perfect use for them!!!

And now for the Party!!!
