I've a site for you :)
Beth and Jenna are sorority of sisters of mine (ok, yes, I was in a sorority in college. That's a story for another time...) who have collaborated on several children's books and other neat projects to equip moms. Their Mommy on a Shoestring site is a brand new and growing place for all kinds of ideas, from thrifty-but-clever homemeade gifts to crafts to gardening. I especially love this frugal idea, found on their Mommy on a Shoestring blog.
