4. For Fall decorating use old wine bottles to put tall dripless candles in or mason jars (mine are from old jam jars) for votives. Make sure you put rocks or sand in the wine bottles so they are not top heavy! For a more decorative look you can add pebbles to your mason jars and place the votive on top.
5. Cook dried beans then freeze them. Yes beans freeze well! They store well in the freezer for up to 4 months. This way you don't need to use canned beans, plus you save money!! I bought garbanzo beans dried for 1.69 per pound compared to Eden canned beans at 1.89 for a small can! 1 pound of garbanzo beans, dried, made 6 cups of cooked. That is ALOT of savings.!
