Spring is here early and many of us are thinking about our gardens. A frugal way to feed your garden is with homemade compost. Composting is cost effective if you garden and good for the environment because you are making sure that biodegradable foods are getting to break down.

Of course, you can buy a container specifically designed for composting. It will cost more then a regular garage can. read more
