Quickie Notes

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Some of my frugal notes:

  • has a LONG list of places to get FREE eBooks!
  • I have been enjoying the free old books I have downloaded from onto my Kindle for PC app on my computer - all GRATIS.
  • Touched up my hair with hot coffee around the hair line to disguise some grey (?) hairs. Otherwise, I am using highlights from plain old hydrogen peroxide (on dirty hair) & rinsed hair with cranberry juice, as I am worried about my irritated scalp. Also tried my red/blonde Roux on my hairline. Looks ok.  (Hubby has NO idea how much I save on my HAIR.
  • Where did I see a tutorial about making your own jump rings for handmade jewelry?  (I think it's on You Tube). They curled 20 gauge wire around pens or markers & such & then clipped them with a wire cutter.  I think the wire of paper clips will work for this too.
  • Trying to make a pair of $1 thirft shop jeans fit - fine on legs, but tight around the middle - Cut a gusset at the back seam & put an elastic from the button to the closure to close the zipper area.  Almost worked - but the rise is VERY LOW.  I am thinking about something like a belly band (maternity style) to compensate for the low rise, etc - and maybe put in a fabric gusset...I do like the grey/black material!
  • Wearing my bargain Laise Adzer (sp?) to hubby's music gig this weekend. Pink is in style, so I am OK. & I can layer it.
  • L.A. now has a SECOND classical station, as Kmozart had reappeared at AM 1260 & on HD radio, whatever that is - Great to have a choice!
  • Doing my own taxes as usual, so I am filing for an extension electronically. (Remember this year we have until Monday April !8!!)
