Ray and I were looking for ways to save money on our groceries by making our own oatmeal packs for his breakfast. I found this YouTube video, and this lady has a lot of great ideas. She has a lot of great money saving tips on her videos too, and as with any thrifty tips some are more extreme than others. Enjoy!

I love to grow my own vegetables, but I have a hard time creating the ideal garden. It seems inevitable that we move right when I get my garden sorted out. It takes awhile to understand the local soil, climate, and watering conditions. For this reason I usually like doing a container garden because I know what soil works best for what I like to grow, it is the cheap $1 a bag manure compost, it stinks but it works wonders.
I used to have two wooden barrels as planters, but after this last move we had to drastically reduce our household goods weight. So while planning my garden this year I found the perfect container garden system that can travel with me without causing problems.
This year I have planted celery, tomatoes, sweat peas, lettuce, and spring onions, but I have a few more things I would like to plant as it gets a little warmer outside.
