My Frugal Ways this Past Week 11/6/16!

With the coming of Fall and less chores to do outside I have had a little more time to make some things to help my household. Many times I cannot imagine these things myself but I become inspired by posts from other bloggers.

What a neat way to save my seeds for next year-Vickie's Kitchen and Garden

I saved my pumpkin seeds and  made a seed packet.   I was inspired by this post.

Memory game is a great way to keep the kids busy!   Vickie's Kitchen and Garden

I made a memory game for the granddaughter. I had most of the colors of felt that I needed and used a Joanne's coupon for the rest.   I was inspired by this post.   I made some of the shapes myself. Other designs I found online.  I hope to make a shapes game next. We have just used this at home so far not for any travel. 

Other ways I've saved this week:
