Homemade Fabreeze for Us Penny Pinchers

I've been hearing a lot of good stuff about making your own Fabreeze on Facebook and Pinterest. I'm going to give this a try. Here's the instructions if anyone else wants to give it a try. We all need to help each other out with the penny pinching. I need to dig up a spray bottle and give this a try!  If anyone has tried this let me know what you think.

Now that I'm in my mid 50s, I love being able to get senior discounts. On Mondays, I like the discounts available at Burkes Outlet stores. You get 15% off on top of the other markdowns they have!  A couple weeks ago, I got a nice LEATHER purse. It had been marked down numerous times and then with my 15% senior discount I scored at $12! I'm so old, that I remember when most leather purses were about $20 full price. Ah, the agonies of getting old lol!

My friends. You can have many acquaintances but real, honest and true friends are few and we are lucky to be able to count them on one hand. I have a great friend who has sent me a plane ticket to fly from home in Kentucky to California to visit. This is the 3rd year in a row she has done this. I'll be in the air flying to our visit next Monday and I've been packing, unpacking and repacking for a month! I'm not excited about our visit at all you know.  We've been friends since high school and I graduated in 75 so it has been a long time. 

Wishing you a wonderful week!
