Dishtowel Bib

Catherine Hall's mom had this idea and I loved it. I have been looking for a bib with sleeves and one that is tight fitting. My kids destroy their clothes when they eat, even with a plastic bib on. So here is the solution. This is a bib made out of dishtowels purchased at Costco. They come in a pack of 10 for 13.86? I think. The only other purchase is bias tape. Or in my case I bought some cheap fabric at walmart and made my on bias tape. Either way (maybe 1 or 2 dollars?)
Here is a slideshow of the instructions start to finish. Even a "non-sewer" can do this. If you don't have a sewing machine come over and you can borrow mine. I'd be glad to help.

A Little Penny Pinching

I was at the Post Office the other day and stamps are going up in price once more. The lady told me to buy these "forever" stamps that I can use regardless of the price.
I also found these that I thought were interesting & wanted to share:
*Tired of paying a fee each time you dial 411? Dial 800-FREE-411 then follow the prompts to get your desired number.
*The BBC is on a mission to enrich people's lives. They are offering language lessons for free, such as Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Greek, Mandarin Chinese & more. visit
*One person's castoff is another person's treasure at FreeCycle
This is a local chapter dedicated to helping the environment by reusing goods & keeping stuff out of landfills.
*I have joined this website because I am obsessed with books. I have been able to find LDS authors & some books that are hard to find from my childhood.
