My sister is a stay at home mom and one way she's learned to survive is to pretend she lives in the 1950's... LOL
Meaning? She makes her bread homemade, she sews her daughter's dresses, she cooks all her meals at home and doesn't use any pre-packaged foods, she even makes homemade cookies and cinnamon rolls, etc.... She even found a way to make homemade laundry soap by using the left over pieces of the bar soap from the shower. I tease her all of the time and tell her she's such a miser!
But truthfully-it's helped save them loads of money. Now that the economy is not so swift, many people are asking her to show them how to do what she does.....I even started making homemade laundry soap myself!

"I take it this isn't a quilt you two worked on together?"
"Certainly not." Mrs. Campson sniffed indignantly. "I would've made her take out those stitches and do them over, and if you match your points as poorly, I'll do the same to you."
