Even buying at discount stores can add up. This is about utilising what you already have in your home & what many of us throw out or recycle. It's not about what you can afford but about not spending money if you don't have to. Well, you'll probably need fresh top soil. Head on over to the video, where I share some tips that I use in most growing seasons.

What are your favourite ways to save or not spend money while making your garden flourish, grow & feed you?

Till next time,


I'm getting too old to worry about style alone, although style and trends have never been my thing. Comfort is my priority. Broken ankles are not on my bucket list. The hills and inclines where I live, can be deadly to one's ankles and feet. So, I had to invest in a better pair of walking shoes. Shoe's that really grip my feet.


Looking for shoes in my size (12) has kind of been a nightmare (I know dramatic) because almost all of the stores that I went into, 9-9.5 in women's shoes were as high as they went. Really, I know I'm not the only big-foot wonder around! Plus, they (most that I went into, not all) "couldn't" order my size from the company. Wow!

So, back to online shopping I went. I found some Clarks on On sale, as a bonus. (I love a sale)!


I'm loving them! They come in a variety of colours and I chose the "Leaf Brown" because, why not?

I think I'll finally found a good pair of walking shoes, for my big Fred Flintstone feet. They are comfortable, solid and do a great job of keeping my feet and ankles, secure. Most importantly, it's waterproof. So far, so good and if they hold up I will be going back to the Clarks brand.


Do you have a favourite/go to, shoe style or brand? (The sale may be over now, but amazon has sales all of the time, especially with a new season coming up, if you head over to check it out. Clarks Women's Wave Trek Lace-Up Fashion Sneaker,Brown Leaf)
