I love to garden as it provides me with fresh air, exercise, and of course fresh fruits and vegetalbes to feed my family. I also strive to keep it organic as I don't want unwanted chemicals and pesticides on my food. I was excited when I learned about Whitney Farms® as it is organic plant food to help boost my garden's ability to produce more food, and also will help to keep my plants healthier. As you can see my garden is looking very lush and the vegetables are coming in quite nicely.
Whitney Farms® has 25+ years of gardening experience and has improved their products to have low to no dust which is great as nothing is worse than pouring out food that will blow in your face. No manure smell and is easy to apply. It contains beneficial microbes which will help to make your soil easy to work and accepts water easier. I love using organic soil in my garden to make it the very best I can which makes the plants produce the very best vegetables and fruits for me.
I know how expensive it is buying plant food so Whitney Farms has a $3 off coupon to help save money! What will you grow with Whitney Farms organic plant food?
Today’s frugal living tip is to use both sides of the paper when printing. I cannot follow this tip for school reports, but I use this often when printing coupons, and other items where it doesn’t matter. It is cost effective and cuts down on the amount of paper used.
My son comes home with an obscene amount of paper from school, and mostly it will just get thrown away. I let him draw and color on the backs of those pages so he isn’t wasting my good print paper. That paper is not cheap. I do recycle all the paper in our house.
Do you print on both sides of the pages or do you also let your kids draw on the backs before discarding?

Today’s thrifty living tip is to always buy generic prescriptions and over-the-counter medications. It will save you a lot of money depending on your insurance copays. For me it is a $40 difference for one prescription! That is a savings of $480 per year if I have to take it monthly. The generic medication is made with the same formula as the name brand. It’s extremely rare for the generic to not be made as well. The only reason you are paying so much for the brand is the name. Usually a brand means quality but not in the world of medications. The only time I buy a brand OTC medication is if I am getting it cheaper than the generic or for free after sales and coupons.
Do you buy generic prescriptions and medications?
