Jeanie's S.O.S.

Save Money



Autumn's crisp temperatures provide the perfect backdrop for budget-friendly gatherings.

  • Host a classic marshmallow roast. The mellow scent of wood smoke, crackling flames lighting up the night sky, and the laughter of friends and family create memories your loved ones will cherish.
  • Competition isn't limited to the football field. Hold a leaf raking contest. Thanks for the idea, Tom Sawyer
  • Invite friends to a "Build Your Own Scarecrow" party. You supply the straw; your guests bring the clothing. Theirs and the scarecrows.

Organize



In a fit of organizing glee, my friend bought a tall plastic gift wrap organizer. Unfortunately, it's so hard to open she stopped trying to put her wrapping paper in it.


The Chic Site offers a simple fix. Put loose wrapping paper rolls into a garment bag and hang them in the closet.
Using a clear bag makes it easy to see your stock at a glance.
Simply genius.
At our house I use a rubber band around each roll to keep it from unwinding.


What other items could you corral in an inexpensive hanging storage bag?


Simplify



Have you ever been in a theater or watching TV with the family when--WHAM--inappropriate language or images pop out faster than the Flash flashing?

Focus on the Family's Plugged In website offers in-depth information about the content of movies, videos, television episodes, songs and games.

For instance, Plugged In's movie category provides insights into

  • Positive Elements
  • Spiritual, Sexual, and Violent Content
  • Drug and Alcohol Content
  • Crude or Profane Language
So simplify your family entertainment decisions with Plugged In, and leave the earplugs and blindfolds behind.
