Thrifty Tip of the Week

 With summer and spring here, I started to think about pest control and I realized that all of the products out there to help with that are not only EXPENSIVE but also extremely dangerous. Going along with the theme of my blog about being thrifty AND green (I love it when I get to incorporate both!!) I did some research and found a really great site about living frugally and found some wonderful tips for frugal and natural pest control. I will DEFINITELY be trying these instead of getting ant catchers or spray to kill any bugs! 


  1. Citronella essential oil n water make an effective non-toxic bug spray ...have u ever read theback of store bought stuff??! Scary!

  2. Thanks for sharing,But I would like to see some more good recipe websites.Can you share with me?

    Waiting for your reply.......

    Thanks in advance!!!
