Benefits of Coasting When Driving

Most people hate to see people 'coast' through life and put a negative tag to such a thing. But when driving, I've found it to be an essential tool every driver needs to utilize.

Remedy for Persistent Bleeping Smoke Alarm

My smoke alarm was set off when there was a lot of dust during a DIY job. It wouldn't stop bleeping when I decided to replace the battery on completing the DIY.

Cleaning with Rubbing Alcohol and Hairspray

If you are like me and have a favorite pair of Converse that always get dirty on the white areas, you will like this part of the instruction. Take a paper towel (also try kitchen towels and rags) and wet it with some rubbing alcohol and rub it all over the white parts.

Getting Rid of Pilling on Laundry

We all have that favorite sweatshirt or blanket that accidentally got put in the dryer. Well there is a way to get rid of almost all of the balled up lint that has been stuck there. Just take a razor preferably new and run it over the fuzzies stuck to your sweatshirt.

I just love summer vegetables. They are beautiful in color and delicious to taste. There is so much you can do with summer vegetables, cooked or raw. Be creative! Enjoy your veggies before summer is over.

Insurance Tip for Better Coverage

We recently changed health/vision/dental insurance companies. Our new insurance carrier denied several vision and dental claims that according to their handbook should be covered. I called to ask them why. They told me that they did not pay on those particular services until after we had coverage for 12 months. Further explanation brought forth the fact that if I could prove we had prior coverage and that our old insurance company covered those services, then they could waive the 12 month rule. This is to prevent people from changing insurance companies just to get things covered.

Peanut Potato Chip Chocolate Stout Cake

I call this the ultimate snack cake because it's packed with some snack time favourites: chocolate, potato chips, chunky peanut butter and beer! Thrown together as a cake, it is the ultimate sweet and savoury dessert. Good luck not going in for seconds or thirds!

Save on Cooling and Heating

Why cool or heat unused spaces? Keep your closet, pantry and cabinet doors closed. As an experiment, I measured all our cabinets and closets in the house and added them up. It added up to over 500 square feet. That is the equivalent of a good sized room.

Granny's "Vacuum Sealer"

Freezing things in plastic freezer bags is great, but vacuum sealing those bags is even better. Here's how this Granny does it without a pricey vacuum sealer: Use a straw!

Deter Scent Marking Dogs

I have a lovely, long row of arborvitae. All are strong and healthy, but still young and tender. Things a mature tree would tolerate, could surely kill these saplings, urine included. Neighborhood dogs have started marking there, so with a few prickly blackberry limbs tucked under them, problem solved.

Remedy for Pain from New Dentures

I'm in my mid 30s and had a full extraction done 11 months ago. I just got my permanent dentures. The tops are awesome. The bottoms fit fantastically, but I am so freaking sore by the end of the day and it hurts. I actually cry when I put them in. I've been swishing with salt water and taking Advil.
