  1. Plant Fertalizer. Love this for many reasons, not only does it make my plants fuller, saves me tons of money, and is safe around my kids, it also helps to reduce the amount of pesky gnats that like to nibble on my plants roots and leaves.
  2. Facial/body Scrub.  This is definitely a new one for me, but according to one of my favorite fashionista's blog, Michelle Phan, coffee grounds mixed with honey is an excellent exfoliate that can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. (Find out more by visiting
  3. Fabric dye. I'm always looking for a frugal way to improve my wardrobe.
