Meet-and-Greet Monday

Share

The Natural Mommy got a makeover at MOPS last week.  Wanna see what I look like with makeup?  And trying my best to resemble one of those pretty ladies on the cover of a magazine? But, also, I’d like you to notice the little red dot on my cheek, to the left of my nose […]

Free Potty Training Help? Sign Me Up!

Share

We’ve ridden quite the potty-training ride this year.  (Are you potty-training?  Need encouragement?  Find it here.) We are recently giving up taking a break from all the efforts over here because, really, I’m not sure what else I can do to get her ready besides sit here and wait for her to declare, “I FEEL […]

I Almost Forgot To Brag.. Er.. Tell You About Benjamin’s Wrapping Paper

Share

So Benjamin’s birthday was… a month ago. And we got him presents. And we wanted to wrap said presents. But all we could find was Christmas wrapping paper. Neither my husband nor I wanted to go out and buy wrapping paper. My husband reasoned that a one-year-old wouldn’t know the difference and set out to […]

And Have You Seen The Hulu?

Share

Now that you’ve got Pandora, you may think you’re all satisfied and could want nothing more from your internet. Obviously then, you do not know about the Hulu. Hulu is free! television! shows! From the current season of The Office to the prematurely discontinued Arrested Development all the way back to The Mary Tyler Moore […]

Have You Heard Pandora?

Share

It’s my motivation during the day. Because sometimes I need some motivational music to get me off my duff and get stuff done. Pandora.com is, and I hesitate to say this, because it’s quite the understatement, an online radio, of sorts. Since 2000, it’s been hard at work on what it calls the “Music Genome […]

The Truth About Butter

Share

I like butter.  I don’t like margarine (it’s just not natural).  Butter is expensive.  Butter does not spread.  Spreadable butter is even more expensive. But I thought the only options were A) use margarine or B) spend lots of money on the spreadable butter. I started researching all the different things I could do to […]

Make Your Own Half and Half

Share

Here’s a tip I learned just today: Melt 7/8 tablespoon butter, cool a minute, then add to 7/8 cup milk. Mix well, and you’ve got yourself a full cup of half and half! I’ve got a recipe that calls for one cup half and half. The smallest container I can find at the store holds […]

Frugal Friday: Honey Oatmeal Bread

Share

This is the bread that convinces friends and family to go buy themselves a bread machine. Because, not only can you NOT (double negative, WATCH OUT.) find anything that tastes this good at Wal-Mart, but would you believe it’s cheaper, too? (See below for price analysis.) Ingredients: 7.5 oz water, 80 degrees 3 Tbs honey […]

Frugal Friday: Stretching A Sweet Deal

Share

About a month ago, I was able to get Apple Cinnamon Cheerios for $0.50/box. The whole family was understandably excited. See, being the Natural Mommy, I try my darnedest to get the family to eat such healthy breakfast foods as granola, oatmeal, and shredded wheat. My husband tends to prefer Cinnamon Toast Crunch. So, in […]
