This WWII frugal living series has really opened my eyes. There are so many things in our cupboards that we use for only one purpose. To think that we could have been saving a whole lot of money if we just knew all of the other ways that they could be used.
Since starting this series in January 2013, I have added a number of these frugal solutions to my daily routine. I have to say, many of them have worked better than the pricey solutions that sit on the shelves of the stores.
For instance, I always buy an ear wax removal kit to clean my families ears, I normally pay around $10 for it. Well this week I decided to try one of my grandmothers remedies instead. I put a couple of drops of warm olive oil in my ear followed by a couple of drops of hydrogen peroxide and within a few minutes my ears were just as clean as they were with the $10 kit. Other than being amazed at how well it worked I was even more amazed that it only cost me a few cents.
Although I haven’t tried each and everyone of the solutions that my family has suggested, I have to say that the ones I have tried have worked just as well, if not better, than the items that I used to pay top dollar for.
I have a shelf that is dedicated strictly for tea, so I can’t wait to try out some of these remedies.
