The Resurrected Tin Foil

Sometimes I wrap sandwiches in tin foil to send with hubby for his lunches. I knew that he was on the frugal bandwagon for sure when he started bringing the tin foil back with him, commenting “we can probably use this for something”.

Last year, we had kept used tin foil, balled it up, and placed it in our garden beds to help keep birds away. (They don’t like the reflection). We’ll still do that this year, but I also decided to add it to the inside of our mini greenhouse. The greenhouse sits in front of a south facing window and the tin foil helps reflect light to the plants from more than one direction. That helps keep the plants from leaning towards the light and becoming spindly.  Just another frugal gardening trick I thought I’d share. 🙂

About finefrugality

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. :-) I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.
