    I so enjoy your blog. I was raised on a farm in IA. We canned from our garden and butchered animals from our farm. Things are so different these days. We are so spoiled as we want the easy way to do things. I also buy food in bulk and freeze. Freezing seams to be the easiest and most inexpensive say to store extra food. We are now retired and earn a little extra money welling online. Keep up the good work. Thank you.

      Hello Linda, It’s nice to meet another farm Gal. I’m so glad you shared your thoughts with me. When I was a child I remember my Momma use to save jelly jars and butter bowls, ect. I couldn’t understand why she did that. But last week as I opened my cabinet door, I laughed. Because my cabinet is full of butter bowls, jelly jars, ext. And I find that they are very useful and free containers. It’s funny how we never get far from our raising. Hope you keep in touch! Trena

      Michelle, I am so glad you like my web site. I also wish your Mom was still here. I’ll never have another friend like her, and I still miss her very bad. Truth be told it was her idea for me to start a web site, she always thought I had a lot to share with people. So I took her advice and here it is. Hope you signed up for the e-mail updates for it. Love you, Trena (Mint)

    Hi! I just followed you on twitter, and ended up here, and I can’t wait to explore your site & blog. I’m a homeschooling mom to 3 girls living in middle TN, and I LOVE this country life! We live very frugally, and like someone else said, it’s hard to see what our friends are going through right now, who don’t live this way. Like Dave Ramsey says, “you’ve gotta live like nobody else, so you can live like nobody else.” Glad to meet you!

      Howdy Shari, Very nice to meet you! I am so glad to meet another Tn-gal out here! I so agree about LOVING this country life! As you can see I am as country (fugal) as I can be, and I love every moment of it.
      Wow you are raising three girls! So you really understand the word frugal. And the great thing is you will teach them how to be the same way!
      My daughter also is raising three girls, two of them are twins. Thank goodness I raised her to be fugal.
      Life can throw a curve ball at anyone at anytime and I wish more people knew how to be fugal. Like my husband says ” You might be on top of the world today, but a tiger might eat your leg off tomerrow.”
      I hope you find something on my site you can use, cause it does my heart good to share with friends.
      It’s wonderful to meet you and I hope you will let me know what you found useful on my site or blog. And also let me know if you need anything that I might be-able to help you with. All you have to do is HOllAR! LOL!

    Well, you know what a cheapskate I am! But I could always learn a thing or to, and seems like you know it all. BTW, I just got through eating some crockpot cooked boiled peanuts..a great protein source! The local produce store sells dried peanuts, and even though it takes several hours to cook them, I do it about once a week. Of course, they don’t last long! LOL

    Love ya!

    Hey Girl this is an awesome site, I’m a country gal from Montana happily married to Stan. I have 4 kids & 3 step kids, they have given us 19 awesome grandkids. Stan has been a logger all his life but the economy has shut that down so we’re building a business online. I love animals, have 3 German Shepards and a Quarter Horse mare that I love. Nice to connect with people like you that enjoy the simple life Thanks Naomi

      Thank you Naomi and I’m glad you like it. I am adding stuff all the time. I enjoy sharing things that I know and use. I am that person in the family that everyone calls when they want to know something. So I thought hey why not start a web site. Thanks again for visiting and hope to chat with you on Twitter!

    I agree with you. I have friends that complain about the econony and have cable and cell phone bills and go out to eat all the time. Drives me crazy. We have always lived frugel raising five children (in the country) making food from scratch, not going out much, buying clothes on sale or discount store or even garage sales.. I have a hard time feeling sorry for those that won’t give up a few things to save some money in the bank….

      tncountrygal said,

      Thank you Fran, It makes me feel better that I am not the only one that gets frustated by the complaining. I just want to shake them and tell them to wake up! I also have a hard time feeling sorry for them. But yet I feel sorry for the day it’s going to hit them, I hope it’s not to late by then. Raising five children Wow! I’m sure you understand the meaning of pinching pennies. I pinch pennies so hard I get the copper under my fingar nails. He! Isn’t the country life wonderful? I just started a frugal recipe page today on my blog. I hope you will share some of your with me. It was nice meeting you and I hope you visit me again. Stay happy, healthy & Safe!
