Thrifty Thursday – Cheap Weed Killer

vinegar

Weeds are in full force right now! They can really be a pain to keep up on. Weed killer can really be helpful in large areas but it can get very expensive. If you need to spray a large area use straight white vinegar right from the bottle. It is much cheaper.
