You Might Be a Redneck If...


You use your coffee pot as a candle warmer.



I save my scraps to put in my tart warmers, but I don't even have tea lights to burn those. So I thought, I sure wish I had a candle warmer.



And this idea was born.



Actually, I think it's quite brilliant. I'm getting right back into the swing of things with being poor. It's like riding a bike. I'm also getting use out of all those half used lotion and shampoo bottles I've saved over the years. I knew I would need them.




P.S. who can guess what that white object is on the right?

Being poor makes one resourceful. ;-)

Dude! That IS brilliant. Oh, I'm all about pouring the last little bit of old shampoo or conditioner into the new bottle. I'm all frugal like that. And I will sit and try to smack out the last drop of lotion for 10 minutes before I open a new bottle.
