Yochi Yochi Giveaway!!! -CLOSED-


Winner

I haven't yet tried Yochi Yochi shoes, but they look adorable! Their website states:

"Yochi Yochi is proud to introduce the latest trend in Japan here on American soil! Yochi Yochi shoes are made with a small squeaking diaphram in the heel of each shoe which causes a small squeak when your child takes a step. The noise is fun, but we think it goes beyond that.

With the squeaking sound in every step, you can find comfort in the fact that your stealthy child will have a hard time getting away from your side without knowing.

In addition to safety, many doctors have suggested that when your child can audibly recognize their footsteps, the sounds can reinforce the natural rhythm of walking and actually help train them to walk."


With 2 cute styles to choose from, "Prince Kairu" (little frogs) for boys, and "Princess Sakura" (pandas) for girls, your little little ones will be stylish and ready to walk!

Yochi Yochi is giving one pair of shoes away to one Tight Wad in Utah reader!

This means YOU should enter to win. These unique shoes make great gifts!

Here's how to win:
Leave comment for each entry

- Visit the Yochi Yochi site and leave comment saying you did

- Like Yochi Yochi on Facebook

- Blog/Tweet/ Facebook about giveaway

- Subscribe to Tight Wad RSS feed or emails - on right side bar


Giveaway will end Tuesday December 21st at 10 p.m. MST. Winner will be chosen by Random.org. I will be given a free product to review. All opinions are my own.

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!
If you're an interior designer, you might quali…

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…
