Use skim milk or whole milk powder in your recipes that require milk. I did this last week with my macaroni tuna bake that required 4 cups (1 litre) of milk. I couldn't notice the difference, and when you think about it - all those pasta and sauce sachets have powdered milk in them!
Woolies have generic milk powder for $6.46 for 1kg - this will make 10 litres.

Crowns can be made from paper or card (A4) by cutting a zig-zag directly across the centre (cut length-ways) and then attach the ends and let the kids go for their lives - colour in, stickers (I got cheapies from the post-office) and then they played for ages with them.. and we'll get some more days play from them too.
Rig up a patio clothes line
Weve got two of these but basically all it is is a retractable line and we zig-zag ours along our patio/deck hooking it around strong cup hooks which we've put in window frames/deck supports. I can get about 1.5 loads on each line (it's 15m long) . Cost about $15 from bunnings, hooks $3 for 4. This is the key to us not using our dry at all this winter!
