So, you printed an ebook…what are your choices for keeping it all together? I’m going to share with you the simple, cheap, and easy method I devised the other day to bind eBooks using something you probably have in your desk drawer right now (and how I’ve made printing less aggravating, too). But first, let’s compare the pros and cons of some typical binding methods you’ve probably already used.
Why dye a shirt in mason jar? Our youngest son needed a Harley Davidson orange dress shirt for his oldest brother’s upcoming wedding. I found all kinds of long sleeve shirts, but no luck with short sleeve in his size, even on Amazon, that either did not cost a fortune or would arrive in time for the wedding. What does one do when one needs a specific color shirt and… Continue Reading
We are oddballs. We purposely live on one income in a society that says you just can’t make it unless both parents work outside the home. It’s a choice we made for our family, because we felt it was best for this momma to be home with the kiddos. We do without a lot of things. Never necessities, and I’m so blessed that we lay down to sleep at night… Continue Reading
If you cook, you know how important it is to keep food from sticking, right? Do you use parchment paper often? Does it just burn your cookies to buy something that’s just going to get tossed out? It does mine! I used to think parchment paper was just a frou-frou Martha Stewart thing, but then I tried baking on it and loved the non-stick qualities. I even reused it as… Continue Reading
How to create a weekly meal plan is something that befuddles many of us. A weekly meal plan, however, is a great way to ensure that you stick to your budget and have healthy, nourishing food for yourself and your loved ones. Planning ahead can help reduce waste as well as impulsive eating out or snacking on foods that are less than healthy.
Making your own fire starters is practical as well as easy! In preparation for our Sukkot camping trip, I whipped up these fire starters in less than half an hour. I’d been saving dryer lint and toilet paper tubes for several months. That doesn’t sound very exciting, I know, but I planned to make some kind of fire starter with them. I’d seen some pins on Pinterest and I had… Continue Reading
My favorite this week is from Our Simple Life – Finding Freedom in Owning Less. It’s a topic that has really been on my mind for the last couple of years, actually – living with less stuff! Getting rid of stuff I don’t need is a slow process, but I’m getting there. I love her tips for living with less and enjoying it, there truly is more freedom in owning… Continue Reading
Necessity is the mother of invention, right? I was making these delicious Shredded Beef Tacos last week and wanted to use my homemade Taco Seasoning Mix. To my dismay, I was out of it – but hey no problem, right? Just whip up another batch. Only I didn’t have chili powder. I haven’t bought chili powder in ages because I had bought some at a bulk foods store and it… Continue Reading
Have you heard of the “No Poo” movement? It has nothing to do with elimination, aside from being another way to eliminate unnatural chemicals from your life. I’ve tried to do No Poo with homemade shampoo, and I have to admit that I love sudsy, bubbly, shampoos that smell like heaven in the shower with scents that linger throughout my day. I love things that smell good and feel good,… Continue Reading
It’s that time of year again! Do you have your planner ready? Do you buy one already made or do you design your own? Last year, I learned that I can make my own planner very inexpensively. AND I could make it however I wanted. Determined to not end up with a bunch of pages unused because they just don’t suit my record-keeping style, I designed my own and took… Continue Reading
