Around the 'Net - Kashless

Instead of splurging on brand new ice skates that your kids will soon outgrow or splurging on a brand new flute that your child will no longer be interested in playing in a few weeks, visit the newest exchange site Kashless.  You can get pretty much anything - sports equipment, school supplies, instruments, furniture, you name it -- for FREE from others. 

It's also a great way to clear away your own clutter.

Works for Me - Hang a Picture

I love sharing household tips and ideas that others may not have thought of, so I am going to share them with my dedicated readers and followers.

Hang a Picture
Need to hang a picture, but not quite sure where the wall stud is?  Studs are usually 16 to 24 inches apart, and you can find one by using an electric razor.  Turn on the razor and move it horizontally against the wall.  When the buzzing gets quieter, you are over a stud.  When the buzzing gets louder again, you've passed the stud.  You want to place your nail in the middle of the stud.

Bulk Blogging

I'd like to encourage you to try blogging in bulk, instead of blogging every day. Try blogging by the week or better yet by the month. It really relieves you of the stress of daily blogging. I have over 12 blogs and each are totally different from each other and different than your blog(s).  My personal goal for each blog is 2 - 3 posts per week. That is only 8 - 12 posts a month.  Everything else in addition to this amount is a bonus. Surely you have 8 - 12 things you can write about . . . right now.

Holistic Wisdom

Like many of you, I have seen my Aunt, Grandmother, Grandfather, and Mother suffer from cancer, and they all have passed from it.  So many amazing and beautiful women have been afflicted.  You need to be educated about breast cancer and practice preventive measures through diet and lifestyle.

Life is short and celebrating the pleasure of life is important!

Recycle That One Can

According to the EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency), the energy saved from recycling just one aluminum drink can is enough to power a 100-watt light bulb for 20 hours or a TV for two hours.

If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money can't buy.

Simply Healthy #7

When washing your hands, don't skip the soap.  Rinsing them with water alone, even hot water, doesn't get rid of bacteria and viruses.  Scrub your hands for 15 to 20 seconds, then dry them thoroughly, as germs attach more readily to, and multiply more quickly on, moist surfaces.  Then turn off the faucet with a paper towel, since that handle is often the dirtiest thing in a restroom.  If there isn't any soap, use the mini sanitizer you keep in your bag/purse.

If you want children to keep their feet on the ground, put some responsibility on their shoulders.

Around the 'Net - Trial X

Promising new treatments for common diseases may be within your reach years before they're available to the general public.  If you have a serious illness, like diabetes or cancer, consider joining a clinical trial.  Visit, a site that uses specific criteria to match you to a study.  Enter your personal info (age, gender, condition, and location), and you'll instantly receive a short list of relevant, nearby trials.  Print the details, bring them to your doctor to discuss, then email the researcher to apply.
