Charlotte Street on Etsy Review & 50% off code!


Are you a beret girl? Well, I can tell you I had never worn one till I reviewed one for Charlotte Street on Etsy. I must admit when I first got it I wasn't sure I could pull it off. But, as any good little reviewer does, I tried it out for several days in a row and...LOVE it! Even my husband who is funny about some of the stuff I wear on my head liked it; that's saying a lot! lol! ;)


This beret is only one item of several cool items on Charlotte Street's shop on Etsy (also called ChaZarlotte's shop). AND, each item is one of a kind! Charlotte, the owner makes all of her items out of recycled sweaters called: upcycling. I guess that means up-ing the coolness factor because she does just that! (I know, super cheesy but so true! ha!) :) This was one of the reasons I was drawn to her shop. What a great way to reuse an old sweater and so economical! The result is looking fabulous!


Her products include wristies (I love the button detail), her berets of course,


Super Cool skirts and more! Charlotte also has a spring/summer line coming soon so watch out for that! Many of these are from recycled t-shirts.

Right now Charlotte Street is offering Tight Wad in Utah readers 50% off her entire shop for one month only! Use code tightwad when checking out. She is in St. John's, Newfoundland (Canada, which is so cool in itself), so it does take a little time; but oh so worth it! This is a super great deal! It's a good time to stock up for gifts, and well...
yourself! ;)

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…

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!
