Do you have information about Christian travel network. i know the Mennonites have places that you can stay at they’re house and they stay at yours. I’d like info about cheap or free travel in exchange for some one to stay at my house.

Hello. I have been following you on FB for some time now. Today I subscribed to your newsletter. I must say I’m feeling overwhelmed today – I want to continue to receive ALL of your wonderful ideas, recommendations and deals so ……My question is this; what is the easiest formate to do this in? Right now I pull your site up on my phone. As I am losing my eyesight this small screen is probably not my best choice. When I can I will switch to a larger computer screen. I just want to read your entries everyday and avoid all the advertisements. Please help.
Thank you.

Hi there:) My question for you is: are the affiliated links safe if I should accidently click on one? I really appreciate your disclosure that is posted everywhere! I did read your policy but didn’t get clarification if these sites are safe/malware… see, I have something crazy going on with my computer and im trying to weed out possibilities and this is my fav, on it all the time!



Cassie April 14, 2014 at 8:37 am

Hi Lori,

We don’t have any malware or unsafe links. Even though there are hundreds of add sources, we only use the top 2 reputable ones on our site – Google and Infolinks. They are safe, reputable and the top networks so there shouldn’t be any issues at all as we try very hard to not have anything unsafe :) I hope that helps answer your question!

I’ve been trying to look at your gardening links but they are double-lined and take me to other off-site links such as Kelly Blue book. All of your links seem to be this way today. Is that normal? I’m excited to start my own garden and would love to learn how you have been doing yours.



Mary April 18, 2014 at 8:00 am


Love, love, love your site! I just recently stumbled upon it.. and am trying to put together my home binder. Can you tell me if there is a printable ‘recipe’ for your liquid laundry detergent? I can only locate the page with the step by step instructions and cannot seem to print.

Thank you!

Are the home made cleaners good for a septic system? Those of us that live out in the country have septic systems, and you shouldn’t use anti-bacterial soaps and such. I have been reading your post on the oils and cleaners, so I was just wondering. You can’t kill the good bacteria in your septic system, that is what eats the paper and all.

The hardwood floors (1950) in my new home appear to be sealed with wax. What suggestions do you have for cleaning them?


Dawn April 29, 2014 at 2:20 pm

I’d also like to know if you have a DIY recipe for laundry detergent that is hypoallergenic & does NOT contain fragrance. My husband is asthmatic and struggles with allergies. Some of the ingredients listed in several recipes I’ve found online contain fragrance.

I have been trying to open up the recipes about 10 camping recipes. It keeps taking me to lots of ads but no recipes. Could you help please?


Cassie May 2, 2014 at 6:51 am

Hi Sheila,
Just click on the name of the site that has the idea after the @. It is a link to the idea or recipe. Hope that helps!

I am looking for a homemade eczema cream you had (?) with coconut oil and oatmeal.
Can you help me?

I can’t pull up your shopping lists for buying the products to make all my cleaning products

Oh no – I am sorry! Try this direct link and see if it works!

I hope your day is going well. I wanted to get in touch with you today to inquire about guest contributions for your site, I have a great infographic that I believe your readers would love. It’s a tongue-in-cheek infographic that covers practical ways to save money, including hilarious references to the Game of Thrones series. It also includes a bunch of interesting statistics as well as illustrations of the most well-known characters of the show.

I’d very much like to send you a sample to view if you’re interested! I also have a writing portfolio that you may take a look at when you have a moment. It includes a few writing samples as well as published works:

I am looking forward to hearing back!

Thank you for your time,

Nick Rojas

I was looking for the article that described your property and how much you have growing in a small space. Do you archive articles and is there an index? I love your site and all the wonderful information – I just wish I could rfer back to particular items and info.


Bessie Fielding July 12, 2014 at 4:27 am

Love you website!! Can you tell me how you get TV on Netflix? DISH has increased my bill $30.00 a mo.; now $73.00 & I don’t even have “on demand” or any “movie channels”. Plus they raised my internet to $57.00 a mo. on TWC. I am on a fixed income and sure could use some help help with Netflix. I remember you having it on our site a while back. Thanks for you help!!


Johnny Korell August 24, 2014 at 5:03 pm

I keep trying to download some of the information and my computer keeps showing me harmful page. What am I doing wrong?


Patty Hall September 6, 2014 at 11:02 pm

I got this also.

Is there a powder form of milk that is not cows milk to use in the sos mix? We do okay with Almond, Rice and probably Goat as he can eat goat cheese but no soy or dairy. I see so many casserole dishes that this would be of benefit to use because I can’t just use a can of cream of whatever. I was amazed when I went to look for white cheddar powder cheese for my popcorn (he doesn’t do popcorn) and found it on the internet. I honestly haven’t looked for powdered kinds of milk but I’m sure I’m not the only one with the question so I will ask it anyway before I look. I enjoy your site so much. So many neat ideas and I likely will use but a few but it is still interesting to see what all the other people have found to work for their situation. Thanks for sharing your time, your life and your helps.


Cassie September 3, 2014 at 11:57 am

Hi Virginia,

We have used powdered goat’s milk due to past milk allergies and that worked well. I am not sure about powdered form of the almond or rice, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work – I just haven’t tried it :)


Stephanie September 5, 2014 at 2:11 pm

Hello, I just read your article about Roku. Thanks so much for the information. What do you guys use for internet connection?


Desiree September 8, 2014 at 8:08 pm

Hi, I love your website. Thank you for sharing all your efforts and information with us. My question is about aged, no wax floors. I striped them with the manufacturer’s recommended product and I can’t tell any difference. I’d really like to take a commercial stripper to it, but I am afraid of what it might do to the floor. I don’t want to make it worse. I don’t like the yellow that looks like old wax, but the worst is the grime that doesn’t come up. There are also black marks on the floor because recently the refrigerator was moved out temporarily from it’s cubby and left marks. What can I do with this unsightly floor. It is a off white Armstrong pattern. Thanks for your help.
