The other day I was in the Dollar Tree and saw Eggies (an As Seen On TV product) that promised to hard boil eggs without the shell. Now since it was only a dollar, I decided I had to try it.
Besides cooking on the grill while enjoying time with my husband and a glass of wine, my favorite thing to do in the spring and summer is to garden. The perfect day would actually include gardening for about eight hours and then lounging on the deck, sipping wine while watching my husband grill lots of goodies […]

Even though I’m not as much of a DIY crafter as I once was, I still enjoy looking at different project ideas and passing them on. My favorite ones to share are those that don’t cost a ton of money and aren’t so complicated that you need a million different supplies and hours in order […]
I just found two completely opposing views on how to launder your bed sheets to make the last longer. What way do you recommend?
I don’t mind bugs but I do prefer they stay outside. I am one of “those” people who really try not to kill them just because they made their way inside. Most bugs don’t do harm to your home and won’t hurt you but still, who wants bugs in the house? There are some though that can […]
We have already shown ways you can clean cheaply and greenly with baking soda and also with white vinegar …another easy, cheap and readily available product you can use to clean with is salt.
Kitchen gadgets and tools. I have friends who just love kitchen gadgets and the more, the better. I also have friends who believe less is more. I’m kind of in the middle of the road, wanting tools that will make my life easier if possible but not wanting so many that I forget what they’re used […]
Ever been to the grocery store and smell the bread or cookies baking? Not only are they baking goodies to sell, but the delicious smells wafting through the store can make you buy more. The same goes for color.

All of the products cost $1.00 each and I tried each one out (I didn’t go as far as to clean the house, just tried them out on the appropriate surfaces.)
The Clever Cutter 2-in-1 Knife & Cutting Board, one of those As Seen On TV products that claims to make your life easier or better if you buy it. You know, one of those products you see advertised late at night, maybe in the early morning hours when you can’t fall back to sleep, and […]
I love animals and luckily my husband does too. We have 4 cats ranging in ages from 3 to about 12 and they keep us laughing and happy. But as any pet owner knows, it can be like having children in the house, with them getting into things they shouldn’t. With our children grown and out of the […]
Chances are you’ve bought something at least once that contained one of those little packets of silica gel. You know, those little packs that say “DO NOT EAT” THROW AWAY DESICCANT. They can be found in vitamins, beef jerky, shoeboxes, purses, electronic equipment, and many, many more items. I’ve always been super cautious and thrown […]
I bet our forefathers would be a bit surprised that what started as a day to celebrate our first president George Washington and his birthday, has now turned into a 3-day weekend of great shopping deals. President’s Day is celebrated on the third Monday in February and was originally called “Washington’s Birthday.” (His actual birthday […]
For years I have been dusting with used dryer sheets and I also use them when cleaning our window blinds. They really work, I don’t have to use dusting spray, and when I’m done, I just toss them. And the best thing? I save money by getting a second use out of something normally thrown […]
