DIY and save money #thrifty #frugal

DIY can save you pounds.  Whether it is car maintenance, home decorating, gardening or cooking. DIY (Do It Yourself) is the way to go. You might not be able to do all the maintenance on your car but just checking basic things before it goes in for a service like fluid levels and maybe checking the tyres and wiper blades can save a little.

Having the right tools for the job #thrifty

If you have the right tools for the job it can make work much easier. That can mean buying tools for doing the garden, DIY or even cooking. I prefer to buy quality when it comes to buying tools but we can still look for value for money. My motor mower from Screwfix was expensive but it is self-propelled and I just follow it around the lawn. I am still worn out when I finish the lawn but it is a lot easier than a hover-mower. It was value for money for me.

wine and grapes

The hardest part of making wine is clearing it once it’s finished. You add wine finings, the best is isinglass which is a gel derived from sturgeon. I used to use a brand called CWE, but I’m not sure if that is still available.  I used the various supplies like pectin enzyme that was produced by Young’s Home Brew and i think their website is worth visiting. You can syphon some wine off into a plastic soft drinks bottle, fill it about half full. Then add your wine finings and shake the bottle to disperse them through the wine. The finings should be kept cool, if they get warm, the gel becomes too liquid. The wine and finings mixture can then be added to the bulk of the wine. (more…)
