GIVEAWAY: $5 Amazon eGift Cards! 3 Winners!!

This week I'm giving away some of my 
Swagbuck earnings  


Three people will win 
$5 Amazon eGift cards!!

To enter (Mandatory):  Join Swagbucks, that is if you haven't already.
It's awesome!  Go here for more info on it.
Leave a comment saying you joined or you already have.

Swagbucks is a free search engine like Google.  At least a couple times a day, if not more, you are rewarded swagbucks just for normal web searching.  I usually get 10 - 40 a day and it takes 450 to get a $5 Amazon gift card.  There are other prizes you can get, but this is the one I love :).  I installed their toolbar which makes searching easier, and I still also use google throughout the day.   You also get swagbucks for referring your friends!  They do not spam or sell your info.  
They don't need much personal info (name, email, zip code, & birthday)

4 more ways to enter (Optional):

Do (or have done) one or more of the following for up to 4 additional entries.  Leave a comment for each so that it's counted!

-Like Tight Wad on Facebook

-Subscribe to Email on side bar

-Follow with Google Friend Connect scroll to top of page and click Follow

-Grab the button and put it on your blog or website on side bar

-Tweet/Facebook/ or blog about giveaway leave link to post/update please

Giveaway will end Tuesday May 25th at 10 pm.  Winners will be chosen by Random.org.

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

What to do with Apricots: Homemade Fruit Leather

If you have access to an apricot tree I highly suggest making fruit leather.  This was my first time attempting any kind of dried fruit and it turned out heavenly!
Plus my house smelled great all day!!  And if you read a recent post you can see why that would be needed...lol

Apricot Fruit Leather

4 cups chopped apricots
sugar
cinnamon
nutmeg
lemon juice
1/2 c water

Add apricots and a 1/2 c of water to a saucepan on low heat.
Cover, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes.
Add sugar 1 T at a time till it tastes good
Add lemon juice 1 tsp at a time to taste
Add cinnamon to taste
Add nutmeg to taste - I did a lot of tastin'!! :)
Simmer for 5 minutes on low heat until thickened a bit


In batches add mixture to a blender
Blend until smooooooooth
Prepare baking sheet: line with microwaveable safe plastic wrap
Add mixture to sheet about 1/4 inch thick


MAKE SURE the plastic wrap doesn't fold over mixture and that it doesn't touch your oven
Bake at 140 degrees for 8 to 12 hours - fruit leathe…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
