Drive Through ATM Safety
I prefer using a drive up ATM machine because I have a car full of kids and I feel safer. Even though I'm in a car, I can never be too safe. I keep my doors locked. If there is a car in front of me and I am waiting, I also keep my windows up.

The holidays are just around the corner. Most of the kiddies on my "good list" don't want toy trucks or Barbies, they want video games. There is a store "Game Stop" that sells new and used games and game systems.
Watch Price Tags for Sale Items

I happen to get quite a few spiders in my house. I hate to find them near my babies' cribs. I found a way to eliminate spiders without sprays. Put double sided tape on an index card or scrap paper.

Did you know that razors don't wear down due to shaving. They wear down because of getting wet. If you dry your disposable razor after each use, you can keep it for 6 months!

As a mother of two and one due in a few days, I've used many diapers. Huggies seem to work the best. However they are one of the most expensive brands.
