New Mouse Pad for LessI've been needing a new mouse pad for ages. All of them that I saw were small ones that cost upwards of $6. I just replaced the old pad with a plastic place mat that cost $1.47 and it works great! The palm trees are very trendy, too.

 

Add Cartoon Characters To Children's ProductsDo your children beg for products emblazoned with their favorite characters? I know my children do, and it makes me crazy! The same yogurt can cost up to two dollars more because it has some kind of cartoon character on it.

 

Scrap metal fish collage on wood.

Fish Collage (Metal and Wood)This art project is for the true recycler. By combining old pieces of metal, a scrap of wood, and leftover paint, you can create a primative work of art that depicts the synergy of man and nature. My father creates these unique pieces in his spare time, and they are indeed works of art.

Buddy, Our New Found FriendOur new dog was found on a busy street. No tags, collar or chip. We put up flyers and sent one to the local pound. No one has claimed him after 35 days, so we have named him "Buddy". He doesn't like frozen dog food or treats, dog biscuits, dry or canned food. He really likes chicken. He doesn't know how to play. No balls or chew toys or rope/sock tugs. He likes to go for walks/car rides and for people to rub his chest. He doesn't like cats. But is good with kids and other animals. He is a good little guy, and we have fallen in love with him.

Saving on Swiffer Dry ClothsI use both sides of my Swiffer dry cloths before I throw them out. I purchase the Dollar General brand which is 20 for 2.00. I saw Save-a-Lot has a 20 pack for $1.00, but I haven't tried them yet. My mom does the same thing!

Dog is Too SubmissiveI have a 5 year old long-haired dachshund that I rescued last December named Doodad. I know a little about his previous life in a household with 4 other dogs, but what I wasn't told but suspect is that he may have been abused. When I reach down to pet him, he acts like he thinks I am going to hit him and frequently flops down onto his side and squirts out a little urine.

Natural Homemade Tooth PowderI want to make my own tooth powder from natural ingredients. I would like this powder to be safe enough for everyday use. I would also like to use sage or the equivalent to whiten my teeth as well. Is there a safe, homemade tooth powder that whitens, too, and can be used on a daily basis?
