Getting Kids Ready For Back To School
Here are some tips for getting kids ready for back to school. Start putting the kids to bed earlier every night so that by the time school starts they are used to a school time bedtime.
In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add potato slices in batches and cook over medium heat until softened and browned. Drain thoroughly on paper towels. Make a layer, overlapping, in a 8-inch springform pan.
Reheating Bread, Pizza and Rolls in the Microwave
When reheating bread that has been refrigerated, put in the microwave with a cup of water. It saves pizza, pancakes, muffins and bread from getting dried out or rubbery.
Staying in One Place Saves Money
I have joked that for a penny pincher staying in one place is a way to save money! But it's true that moving is a costly business. So think twice before re-locating! For all the fact that we like to travel, my whole family has always liked a settled "home".
Great Photo Storage Trick
I store my daughter's 8 x 10 inch school portraits in the same frame, with the latest one on top. Every year, when we put the new photo in, we lay out all the old ones and compare hairstyles, additions of braces, or glasses.

In an intense heat wave, I have saved my garden produce from sunburn and kept the plants green by covering them with old bedsheets.
In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, cauliflower and onions. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients.

The extra toilet paper was never close enough to get to it when needed. I took 3 rolls and put them on the plunger handle. The plunger has an inexpensive cover. It sure has come in handy and it does double duty.

Watch Out For Vinyl Bibs From China
I just read in the newspaper that some vinyl bibs from Toys R Us were being recalled because some of them had too much lead. Made in China. It's possible that some of the bibs ended up at other stores under different labels.

I'm not sure if most people know this or not, but this is a tip if you buy your new vehicle from a dealership. Afterwards, send your friends and/or family members to the same dealership and salesman and have them purchase a vehicle.
