FRUGAL FRIDAY #6

Whew! I just made it! It's still Friday! and here's my TIP.
Dog pee pads.
If you have little dogs, old dogs and/or if you have to be gone for several hours.
Pee pads can be the answer.
But they can be expensive and if you are like me, if they even just peed on the corner, well...I don't want to have it just laying there, with PEE on it. So there goes another one!
Until I discovered -
MEDICAL UNDERPADS.
They are used for people with incontinence.
They are used on wheelchairs.
On beds.
and they are WASHABLE!
You can go to an online medical supply store and order some or....
Go to EBAY! That;s where I got mine. I ordered a 6-pack and I always have a fresh one handy!
You can get them in different sizes. Some fit nicely in a dog kennel  or you can get a bigger one that works great if you want to spread it out in the corner of a laundry room or something and if maybe you have several little dogs.
So, that's my tip!
Got it in just under the wire!
I think that's the cheapest and tidiest way to go...
unless you are able to train them to do this -

Do you have any tips this week?

This is the best tip ever! When I first got Lita I got those pee pads then switched to newspaper. I will look for these cause my dog pees like crazy because of her allergy meds plus will not go out to do business if it's raining. Thanks so much!

I'm still praying mine will figure out how to use the pot. If they don't one of these days I'm gonna have to find me some pot and then I won't care!

Happy 4th!

Thankfully very few problems like that here at home. But it is a great tip!

Can´t think of anything frugal at the moment :-)

Have a great day!
