Last time I was in need of a bookcase, I checked the stores and was pretty uncomfortable with prices. So I hit the local construction materials store and went back home with some planks and screws and other stuff I needed; they were even so kind to saw them by my measures for free. One evening lacquering, another one assembling, and I have a nice floor-to-ceiling bookcase, made of good pine, which costs me less than a beaver-board one and fits into the apartment much better, because IYAMCHEAP.

I have long hair with bangs. My hair doesn’t need to be trimmed often, but my bangs need to be trimmed every few weeks. Rather than pay to have it done, I bought a pair of inexpensive hair cutting scissors and do it myself at home. It’s easy to do in front of a mirror, and IYAMCHEAP.

I convert really tiny miniskirts that I find at the thrift store into fashionable shorts.

This week I made another bookcase for my room. It’s made of wood, not chipboard, so it’s much healthier. Also, it’s made to the exact measures of the space I fit it in and all the vertical space is used. The shelves are exactly one regular book high, not an inch more. Finally, it worth in materials less than any one, even in the cheapest of the stores. And the proud look on my kid’s face when we finished it was worthless. All that cause IYAMCHEAP.

For Christmas my fiancé and I don’t have a lot to spend on presents, but we both love giving gifts. This year we did most of our shopping at the dollar store, the discount department store, and warehouse sales! For our grandmothers we bought body lotion, scented candles, bubble bath, and other bath essentials all at the dollar store! Then we got a reusable plastic basket and wrapped everything up in it. Each basket which would have cost over $50 in the store cost us less than $20!!!

I wanted a nice thick rug to put beside my bed, but the price of a decent rug was quite daunting. As I was looking around I found a how-to on braiding rugs and crocheting rag rugs…. and dug out my craft supplies. Now I have a nice thick rug, only having had to buy a couple thrift store bedsheets to finish it off. 4’x6′ rug for less than $20… approximate savings? Hundreds. IYAMCOMFY and IYAMCHEAP

Saw on TV, make-up saver ideas:
Buy slightly darker shade of liquid foundation and thin it with moisturizer.
Use Witch Hazel as toner, add drop of essential oil to smell nice.
Use egg whites for facial firming.
Use mayonnaise on hair for weekly deep conditioning.
Use fresh pineapple juice (not pasturized) to inhibit hair regrowth on legs, etc.
Use lemons on elbows & heels to soften skin.
Eat more red/orange/yellow vegetables to get richer/rosier skin.

I live in the British Columbia okanagan, we are known for our fantastic growing conditions. During the harvest season I go to the keremeos fruit stands (cheapest in the okanagan) and buy all my fruit and vegetables in bulk. I can find cherries, apples, pickling cucumbers, beans, peppers, tomatoes, onions, etc for 30-40 cents/lb, then I go home and can them. Then all winter long I have cheap fruits vegetables sauces and salsas. They also make great Christmas gifts
