December Monthly Challenge

Have you got spare buttons, thread and enough cloth to make some simple cloths if necessary?  Teach your children how to sew on a button.

And just on the funny side of buttons - my Grandfather calls a button a "buttoff" if it has fallen off, and needs to be resewn.  Oh he is hilarious!

Week 49 of the 2011 Food Storage Challenge

Hmmm so my Blog seems to have a mind of its own.  When I set posts to be published at a certain time, it likes to be precious.  Dear Blog...just behave, will you! *winks*

Anyways, here's the details for Week 49:-

$10 Challenge
Store 2 large cans baked beans

$20 Challenge
Store 4 large cans baked beans

The bigger the can, the better for these challenges.  You can use the opened and rinsed out can as a camp cooker.  They're quite handy!

Of course if you don't like baked beans (I'm a disliker ;D), you can always store something else.

I'd prefer spaghetti, so I store that, but I have a husband and son who will quite happily eat baked beans.  Typical.
