With no apologies to the credit card commercial


Beautiful mums all over the deck... expensive.

One small golden rust mum plant from store... $2.50

One small yellow mum plant from store... $2.50

One tiny purple mum plant from store... $1.00

Thrifted granite ware container they sit in... cheap... already on deck.

Getting the look of lush mums without charging lots on credit card... priceless.

This is both thrifty and pretty, so I compliment you.

I love Chrysanthemums. And like you, don't really want to spend a fortune for them....If you plant them in the ground, they'll come up next summer and you can divide them for lots of plants.

Brenda, I finally remembered to bake extra potatoes so I could fry them next day and it was so easy and tasted great! Thanks!

It doesn't take a lot of money to make an attractive deck. I compliment you.
We can be creative in our decorating and in our spending...

I have thought of that ad campaign several times when I have thought of our family times as priceless and such. Zero expense put out but priceless just being together. Thanks for the thoughts Brenda! Sarah
