How To Double Ready To Spread Frosting

HOT TIP:  Stretch your ready to spread frosting using my tried and true trick.  My frosting costs me 1/2 as much because it goes twice as far.  Here’s how to double your frosting –put the frosting in a mixing bowl and beat it for 1 minute on medium speed with your mixer.   Beating the frosting adds air and makes the frosting extra fluffy and creamy.  It spreads further and tastes so light and delicious!

If you want more dense, just add 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar before beating it and that will do the trick. If you don’t have any, no problem– you can skip this step.

Colleen, Attended our June 2015 Long Island NY class “I had been couponing for some time and was able to cut my food bill in half. After coming to your class last month I cut the bill in half again.  I spent only $107 for $400 worth of food and paper products. I used $100 in coupons.  Today I paid $5.83 for 4 packs of Perdue drumsticks and 2 jars of 30oz Hellmans mayo. Cool huh! Thank you for enlightening me further.”

Frugal And Thoughtful Wedding Gifts

Frugal Wedding Gifts


Fun, Frugal and Thoughtful wedding gift ideas.  Giving gifts shouldn’t have to cost an arm and a leg but can be just as impacting with a little bit of time and love.  Check out these frugal wedding gift ideas from around the web.

1.  Wire Words

This was such a fun project!  Imagine what you could do for a wedding: love, forever, eternity, the couple’s last name, or a monogram.  Use their wedding colors or just use some leftover yarn you have laying around the house and you have one cute gift.  Plus, after you spend $4 on the galvanized wire, you can get several words done for more than one bride and groom.

2.  Conversation Coasters – My Computer is My Canvas

My good friend Colette has some super cute printables.  This one can be put together for a great inexpensive gift.  Print these coasters and glue them onto some .25 tiles from the hardware store.  Add some glaze on top and tie them all together with a great bow and you have a gift they are sure to talk about.  {get it? “talk about” – “conversation” – HA}

3.  Quilled Monogram – Craftastical!

Doesn’t this just pop?!  I can’t wait to try this one.  Can you believe this was made with cardstock and a pencil?!?  I just don’t have anything else to add.  The tutorial at the link gives really simple directions.  Have fun!

4.  Can of Dates – My Creative Stirrings

If you have an empty #10 can and some cute wrapping paper you are almost home.  You can splurge a little and put this gift in a $4 paint can from Lowes and add some cute ribbon to the handle.  Depending on your budget you can add some items from the list of dates or even throw in some gift cards to the movies or a restaurant.

5.  Personalized Pyrex – Make it and Love it

Use vinyl to etch the last name of the new couple.  Now they have a dish that will always find its way home.  Plus you can add some hot pads or other kitchen utensils if you want to add a little something extra.

And if that weren’t enough fun frugal wedding gift ideas, here are 5 more!


6.  Gift Baskets – Darling Doodles

Speaking of putting gifts together, this gal has some “Darling” ideas!  She even has put together tags to go with them.  I was thinking about a colander, pasta, sauce, olive oil, pasta spoon, and maybe a movie and some popcorn for a dinner and move in a pot.  I also love her taco gift basket…maybe because these two I could easily throw together with items I have on hand in my stockpile {yes, I am just that cheap that I would give away groceries}.  Heck, I could even do a laundry basket with all the laundry fixins too!

7.  Home Town Maps – Young Home Love

How simple and classy do these look?  You could spend time looking for vintage maps of the bride and groom’s home states or you could download and print some at Costco.  Imagine how cool these would look on the wall with a big wooden heart in the middle?  Nice!

8.  Recipe Card Maker – Skip to My Lou

This last idea may take some time and possibly a few other conspirators.  Everyone has a handful of “go-to” recipes for your family, right?  Imagine you are a new wife and need some tried and true dinners to impress your new hubby.  Now imagine you have a few friends who were generous enough to share their best bites with you.  Finally, can you see how awesome these recipes would look typed up, printed and put in a photo album that holds all the recipes?  I think I need to do this one for myself.

9.  Wedding Subway Art – My Digital Creations

So Colette has a sister named Lisa who is just as creative.  It’s really disgusting {love you girls}.  Gather some info and have her put together a personalized subway art for the big day.  Watch for some great sales on frames and you will be a wedding guest hero.

10.  Cash is King

Let’s face it… sometimes you just don’t have time for all these other ideas.  But if you are going to give cash, why not take it up just a notch.  Get a stack of $2 bills from the bank and add a tag that reads:  For the 2 of you.  See?  Cash doesn’t have to be tacky!


I sure hope these frugal wedding gift ideas helps get those creative juices flowing and you can see how easy it can be to put together gifts that are less likely to be returned or re-gifted {gasp}.  Any newlywed couple would be thrilled to get a gift like these that shows thoughtfulness even if it doesn’t shine like a crystal vase {say it like vaaaaz}.
