Charlette Carollo, the mother of seven, has been making her own version of
popular store-brand items for years. One day she realized the chili packet she
bought at the store costs mere cents to make compared to the amount she had paid
for it. From then on, she challenged herself to make and package her own
products. With a large family and a tight budget, Carollo learned how to save
money by creating everyday essentials from items found in her kitchen.
Â Carollo wrote a weekly column of money-saving tips entitled Putting It
Together for the Slidell Sentry-News. She gives seminars to small groups
about canning and food storage. She also enjoys community service activities in
her spare time, such as making rosaries for churches and missions and crocheting
hats and blankets for those in need. Carollo serves on the school board of St.
Charles Borromeo Catholic School.
Her seven children, who are all now fully grown, lived on a large farm with
Carollo and her husband, Norman Ladner. She lives in Picayune, Mississippi.
