Link Roundup – Week of 8/24

This week’s frugal roundup

Steel cut oats in the crock potThe greenest dollar has a great article on making steel cut oats in the crock pot. Since I am working alot of mornings now, and don’t have the same kind of time off anymore, I needed a way to get my oat on, without watching the pot for half an hour. I have not tried this yet, but I will be putting my oats on the pot in about an hour. I’ll let you know how they go!

Even better yet, he uses a kill-a-watt to measure the power consumption in cooking the oats. No spoilers here, go read the article.

What is TimeBanking – This was sent over to me by jillian. This is is a great idea. The gist is, you do something for someone (paint their fence, fix their computer, etc.) and in return, someone does an hour of work for you. I would TOTALLY do this! This is the best!
