Here is one of my few crafty things I have done in my life. It combines everything I like. Recycling and being frugal. This was a simple Halloween decoration but I have gotten many compliments on them and they were so easy to make.
I saved a few milk jugs. Cutting the hole in the bottom of the milk jug would be a parent only activity but drawing the faces on

So excited for our local team, The Kansas City Royals!! It has been a long time for Kansas City Royal's fans to be in any post-season games. I can safely say that Kansas Citians across the metro area are wearing Royal Blue.
I got to see the Kansas City Royals back in the 80s when they were Champions. I watched the legendary George Brett play ball and have a love of the game. &n

Last Thursday we decided to have an inexpensive family fun day before school begins. Since our boys love trains, we usually drive by train tracks all of the time in hopes of catching a train.

So I like Cinnamon Chex. Recently, the box got a new look. I picked it up and instantly knew that I was getting less. And sure enough the new packaged Cinnamon Chex has 1.4 ounces less of cereal. Luckily, I had a picture to display my findings from a breakfast cereal post on January 23, 2013. The cereal box on the left was taken in January 2013. The picture on the right was taken July

If you are selling your house this summer, please check out New World Flat Fee Realty. With a traditional realtor, they are collecting a portion of the sales price of your house. And having a buyers broker and a sellers broker, that can add up decreasing the amount of money you receive from selling your home. But with New World Flat Fee Realty, they are taking a flat fee, saving you lo

With severe weather season coming up, I found some great tips on how to handle food safely during a power outage. It would be unfortunate to throw food away after a power outage because that is money being thrown away. Best tip is to not open the refrigerator or open it as little as possible. Put foods in the freezer so they stay colder longer. Group your foods toget

I was at my son's basketball camp today and someone said that the onion is a magnet for bacteria so you can leave on your kitchen countertop overnight and it will absorb all of the bacteria and mold. The next morning, just throw it away and you have a clean kitchen countertop. I thought that sounds fabulous. I have several recipes I use that call for about 1/2 of an onion.

As I change my air filter today, I thought I would share the value of homeowners changing their air filter on a regular basis. The standard recommendation is to change your air filter every 3 months. But it should be changed more frequently if your house has pets or smokers. Having a dirty air filter decreases air flow making your air conditioner work harder to keep your house co
