I’ve read a lot of articles that talk about how junky and poorly made items are that you can pick up at dollar stores and while I agree that you have to double-check expiration dates (like I do even at the grocery store) and that toys can easily break (just like at any other store), for the most part, I enjoy shopping there and find great buys.
September is National Honey Month. Loaded with antibacterial and antifungal properties, honey has a multitude of benefits, in addition to sweetening foods. Honey was considered to be the “nectar of the Gods” by ancient Greeks and ancient Egyptians actually made offerings of honey to their Gods. They also used honey as embalming fluid and as […]

I feel like I’m a relatively informed person when it comes to choosing bottled water. I’ve kept up with the news on how to read the labels, making sure the bottled water I’m buying has the #1 PET or PETE symbol on the bottom, (which the government has deemed safe.) So when I came across an […]
The more I read about turmeric, the more it seems like a “miracle” herb/spice. For thousands of years it’s been used to treat a huge variety of illnesses due to its potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits and also as a natural beauty product. There has been extensive research, studies, and tests done on this amazing spice […]

Love, love, love shopping at the Dollar Tree stores (or any dollar store where everything is actually only a dollar.) Two of the items I picked up this month were almost exact duplicates of similar items I bought at a higher dollar amount and they worked the same.
Here’s my top five favorites this month:
Summer’s approaching and with the warmer weather, flip-flops will be the standard fare for many. In fact up to 65% of us wear flip-flops in the summer. And why not?

Razors and blades are expensive. You pay a small fortune for them, after hunting down a store employee to unlock the store case they are usually displayed in, use them a few times and then toss. During the winter months I kind of “forget” about the cost of shaving (tights, pants, leggings, long-sleeves,) but […]

We always have a few lemons on hand because I use a lot of lemon juice when cooking and both my husband and I like adding the lemon zest to a lot of our dishes. I’ve also started drinking lemon water in the mornings again, which has really felt beneficial to my body. I know […]
I recently had a routine mammogram which thank goodness, was just fine. While at the imaging center the mammogram technician asked me why I had skipped several years since my last one and quite honestly, I for some reason had thought the guidelines had changed a bit and that I didn’t need a yearly test. […]
