MibsBlog Thrifty Tips – March 2012

Here I try to share any money/time-saving tips that I have found to be useful each month.

Do feel free to share yours also if you don’t mind me keeping the list updated!

( I will of course name you as the author of your tip!)

 

NEW TIPS MARCH 2012

Make Your Own Watering-Can! 

 

Today I had just finished potting up the next batch of seedlings into their new larger homes and was about to water them in my usual way for indoor watering with a jug, when I spotted the empty plastic milk bottles that I have been saving up to use as cloches. One brain wave and a few stabs with a small screwdriver later ( be careful and DON’T do what I did and stab yourself in the process!) and hey presto, a fab indoor homemade watering-can! 

With a bit of practice, turned upside-down you can control the flow of water simply by squeezing gently!

 

Make Your Cut Flowers Last Longer 

I was given this bunch of flowers a few days after my birthday as a belated birthday present….it’s now almost two months gone and with a bit of careful stem trimming every couple of weeks, and gently pulling off the flower petals that turn brown, I STILL have a lovely display!

The pic above shows them after my latest “tidy up” session!

Leaving a plate full of “food”    for Bill & Ben!    lol
