How to Remove Jar Labels

There are two easy ways to get labels off jars. One is with nail polish remover, which is a little smelly. The other is our preferred method: hot water and olive oil. First, peel off as much of the label as you can with your fingers. Then get some really hot (but not boiling) water and fill the jar with it, which will start to melt the adhesive from the inside. After a few minutes, dump out the water and use a rag or paper towel dipped in olive oil to gently scrub the label away. It works every time!

How to Host a Frugal Baby Shower

Here are some fun and frugal ways to host a baby shower! 

The Invitations

Homemade invitations are generally the least expensive way to go when it comes to making invitations for your baby shower. I plan on buying some colorful cardstock and a border punch used for scrapbooking. Other embellishments include die-cut paper (wonderful for dressing up the cardstock), die-cut ribbon, and rub-on borders. For ease of printing, plan on making two or four invitations per 8.5”x11” piece of cardstock. Lay out your wording in Microsoft Word or with a free online template (search for “free baby shower invitation templates”), print, cut, and decorate.

Other inexpensive (or free!) invites include e-mail invitations like those found on Evite.com, or you can buy pre-printed invitations relatively cheaply from a site like Tiny Prints, a personal favorite of mine. Invitations on Tiny Prints start for as low as $0.59 per card.

 

The Venue

Baby showers are often held in the hostess’ own home, which is, of course, free. If you’re not so lucky or if you prefer to think outside the home for a baby shower venue, consider having the shower in an outdoor location like a park — just remember to keep the comfort of the guest of honor in mind before planning an outdoor shower in August! Other frugal venue choices include churches, where rental fees are generally less than banquet space at a hotel or restaurant.

 

The Food

You can recruit friends and family to bring a dish or check Costco for great party trays. 

Here are recipes we like:

For dessert, consider making your own cake or recruit a friend to make the cake. Cupcakes are also fun- baby shower-themed cupcakes at MarthaStewart.com.
