Burlap Window Panels

I know I am not alone in saying that I love burlap and it’s price. The fact that I can get it for a couple of dollars a yard with a coupon makes me wonder why stores like Ballard are charging around $200 for one burlap panel. Sheesh! Alicia from Thrifty and Chic shows that you don’t have to pay those outrageous prices, not when you can make your own burlap curtains for $12, and that’s for two panels!

Wal-mart Kitchen Mat Makeover

Doreen from Hymns and Verses fell in love with a pretty and functional kitchen mat from Ballard that features a measurement conversion chart. What she didn’t love was the price of$75. Doreen instead decided to try her hand at making her own with a similarly-shaped comfort mat from Wal-mart and a chalk marker. Doreen designed the chart on the computer and then used a nifty transfer method to trace it onto the mat. The final cost of Doreen’s mat was under $15 instead of the more pricey original!
