Save Money Cooking With a Crockpot




If you don't have a crock-pot yet, you should go ahead and invest in one. A crock-pot is so easy to cook with, and the recipes will come out so delicious, it won't be long before you are addicted to cooking with it!

A crock-pot in the kitchen will save you money and time. You can put all the ingredients for your meal in the crock-pot in the morning, let it slowly cook throughout the day, and you will have a delicious meal ready at dinner time. And one of the greatest things about using a crock pot is that you can use less expensive cuts of meat--it will still be delicious and tender because it slow cooks all day long.

Another benefit of the Crock-pot -- the energy usage is much smaller when compared to using your oven! You will find countless recipes for your crock-pot that are healthy, delicious and will save you money at the grocery store. Just check the Internet for recipes, or check out some cookbooks at your library.

One last thought. If you get a crock-pot meal started early in the morning, it doesn't matter how hectic and crazy your day may get when it comes to dinner because you will still have a great meal ready for everyone--no need for a pizza or other fast food to feed the kids when mom is exhausted at the end of the day!

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
6. Make a Hanukkah Gift out of a soup can.

Home Made Spider Costume

Attach each sock to the side seams of the shirt (two socks on each side)
(I would suggest sewing the socks to securely attach them to the shirt, but duct tape can probably work as well.)

Next,  you will want to attach the black yarn in-between each sock and the cuffs of the shirt. This can be done in a couple of different ways. You can use the duct tape to attach a yarn piece at the cuff of the sleeve, and then tape the end of the yarn on t…
