When ever I see a high priced thingy you guys use or a way of doing something, I will post a link or method that is cheaper. I'm not trying to insult you or anything but I'm frugal. Every $ I save on one thing can be used in another spot.
IE: I have found it's cheaper to buy a cheap inverter and hook up 110vAC lights to the inverter than to buy a pile of expensive 12vDC lights. I accomplish the same thing for 1/2 the cost of DC. I can take the $200+ I'm saving on lighting and use it someplace else.
IE: By painting our cabinets, I can use a lesser (cheaper) grade of plywood over buying expensive "cabinet grade" (stainable) plywood.
IE: By using an 8" deep one third stainless steel steam table pan we had, I didn't have to buy a bathroom sink.
Yep, I'm frugal. Yesterday, I made a cardboard template of the ceiling curve so that I can lay out the sides of the can rotators I'm going to install in the cabinet over the freezer. I will be building the sides of the can rotators out of the FREE 1/4" pegboard I found on Craigslist and some scrap plywood we have. I'm also going to use the FREE pegboard to build the drawer peg system
and some rotators for other foods like mac & cheese boxes, pasta, microwave popcorn packets (comes 28 to a box), instant cocoa packets (comes 60 to a box), and anything else I find a need for. I like free stuff.
