Frugal decorating finds

Yesterday my mother, sister and I took a little "girls’ shopping trip", yesterday. I was able to get a few things for decorating all for under $2.
The candy was free after Extra Bucks from CVS. I plan to use the green (and probably orange since the Irish flag has both colors) jelly beans to decorate for St. Patrick's Day which I’m in the midst of trying to decorate for. I will probably use them for Easter, too, along with the eggs. The hearts necklace is for next Valentines Day.

We got the book at our library for $0.20. We have some cookbooks on display on the bottom of our hutch in our kitchen, but really could use more, plus my sister enjoys trying new recipes and may be able to make use of it in her blog: Nurturing Cruise.

  1. I think it might be morally wrong to use Cadbury Mini Eggs for decorating instead of eating. They are my favorite!

    All joking aside- I'm sure you'll make something cute out of them.
