Making Your Own Basket Liners

I had these four baskets in my credenza that I wanted lined. I looked at several stores and wasn’t finding what I was looking for. The odds were against me: not only did I need to find baskets with a cute liner that matched my decor, but also baskest that fit in the credenza.

It wasn’t working. And I was getting frustrated.

So I wondered how difficult it might be to make my own basket liners. I did a Google search and found a SUPER easy tutorial, no pattern needed! I made the liners today. Didn’t they turn out great?

Here is a close up of the fabric. Isn’t it gorgeous?

I got it at Joann’s, at 50% off. I paid $4.99 for each basket (I got those awhile ago somewhere) and $10 for all the fabric, which was 3.5 yards. So it ended up costing me $7.49 for each basket. Not bad when they are custom made!

I was surprised how easy it was to do this, and I am NOT a seamstress! Here is the video tutorial I used from

If you try it, let us know how it goes for you!

Thrift Stores for Back to School Shopping

I have been a thrift store shopper for several years. As far back as I can remember actually… When I was a teenager, although I enjoyed shopping there, I would have been so embarrassed if one of my friends saw me there. Apparently, this thinking has changed for a lot of teenagers recently.

I have talked to several parents whose teenagers actually enjoy shopping second hand. I think that in this economy even some teenagers are noticing the money that they can save by shopping second hand. Most thrift shops are a bit picky as to what they sell, I have bought my kids some used stuff that is in excellent condition recently.

In my area we have a few thrift store options: Savers, Deseret Industries, The Salvation Army, Kid to Kid, a few consignment shops, and also Plato’s Closet.

If you are struggling to purchase name brand school clothes for your teens, check out Plato’s Closet. They only sell name brand clothing. Seriously you can buy the jeans that are $60 in the trendy mall stores for less that $20!

Consider thrift stores for other needs to. Home decor and housewares are also found at great prices at thrift stores.

Homemade Eggo Waffles

I’m sure most of you already do this. I thought I would do a post on it anyway because maybe there is someone out there who could use this idea.

When you make homemade waffles or pancakes for breakfast, double or triple the batch on purpose. That way you can freeze some for later. Whalla! Homemade “Eggo” waffles.

We had homemade wheat waffles with cinnamon syrup for breakfast this morning. I made 20 extra waffles, fit them in this Ziploc bag, squeezed out the extra air, and now I have a few breakfasts done during the next few weeks. I love it!

Doing this does take a little extra time, but it’s worth it! Your family is getting homemade goodness instead of the stuff from the store that is full of high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, and artificial colors/flavors. You know what is in these…you made them! And, it really does save money. You may think that box of Eggos at Costco is a good deal, but if you make waffles from scratch and freeze them yourself, it is still much, much cheaper.

I posted my recipes above that I made today. Do you have any recipes you want to share?
