Have you discovered Pinterest yet? I have, and I have fallen in love! Pinterest is full of great fashion tips, decor ideas, craft and DIY projects and so much more. But what you may not realize is that Pinterest is also full of great ideas for the frugalista too. From DIY to recipes to natural solutions, there are dozens of great ideas posted every day. Every week I do my best to track down the original post and share the best frugal ideas found on Pinterest.
ApartmentTherapy.com tells us that if you wipe dryer sheets on your baseboards, you’ll not only have clean baseboards, that they will stay that way. Apparently the dryer sheets break the static charge that attracts the dust in the first place, and leaves behind a protective layer that causes dust and dirt to not cling to the boards as easily.
I don’t know who originally pinned this, but this is brilliant if it works! Add a few drops of saline or eye drops to your mascara to extend the life of your favorite mascara. A quick google search shows a lot of people talking about the idea online. If you’ve tried it, let us know if it worked or not.
This beautifully brilliant tip comes from the blog MooreMinutes.com, from a home party she threw: cut open the tip of glow sticks or glow bracelets and empty the chemical into a clear glass bottle. Swirl around and you’ve got these brilliant glow stick bottles! These would be great on tables at parties, but I can also imagine using them for luminaries lining a driveway or sidewalk during the summer. Or maybe along the deck railing…there’s so many ways these could be used. So pretty too!
Are you running out of room for your stockpile of cleaning supplies? Check out this clever idea from Whine and Cheese: hang an over the door shoe organizer over your pantry/laundry room door, and slip your cleaning supplies into the pockets. What a fantastic idea for keeping them easy to find and well-organized!
Here’s a great idea for the little ones who might be bored while trapped inside on cold or rainy days: use rainbow rice for sensory play! Much easier to clean than sand, and if they’re older they can even help you to make it. This beautiful idea comes from Share & Remember, who has the full tutorial of how to make the colored rice on her blog. The instructions look really simple, and the whole project is really frugal.
