for the perfect frozen slushie drink. My Schnickelfriz and I often stop at the QuickTrip to get a frozen black cherry slushie. As the weather has gotten hotter, we've been stopping more frequently. My tightwad instincts are that I can do it better and cheaper at home--it's just a matter of getting the right combination of black cherry Koolaid, sugar, water and ice.
Another thing I want to try and make is a FlipFold shirt folder so Fritz can fold his own laundry. I've seen the TV commercial but am unwilling to fork over $20 plus shipping. I've found several people who have shared their home version on the internet--most seem to use cardboard. I'm wondering if foam core board would be more sturdy? Next trip to Walmart I'm going to get supplies. I'll keep everyone posted.
