$40 Bedroom Makeover
By shopping at thrift stores and making do with what I had, I spent under $40 redecorating my daughter's room. Elly's new room took me two days work, 15-30 minutes at a time, resting about 1-2 hours in between. It took me about one day to put the paint on the walls.

New Vinyl Flooring Not Laying Flat
I need help with my new floor. My husband and I put down vinyl in our kitchen and it is not laying down. We are on a fixed income so there is no way we can hire anyone. Any help would be good. Thanks so much.
Scrapbook for Student Assignment
I've heard about the scrapbooking craze but have not been involved. My 13 year old son has been given a school assignment to create a scrapbook about himself. His instructions were to take each letter of the alphabet and give 2 words beginning with that letter to describe himself. He said the teacher suggested they use buttons "and stuff" to put on it. The project is due in about a week, so I assume it's not expected to be too grand. We've already come up with his words, and I thought about writing them in calligraphy form on the pages. Any quick or easy suggestions out there for what to use for the book/pages, decorating, etc.? Any ideas are welcomed!
Tips on Getting Kalanchoe to Bloom

Severe Itching Caused by Okra Plants
Every year I have my vegetable garden and I always plant okra, which I love. When I get around the plant and start picking, I start itching like I have gotten into poison ivy. I use long rubber gloves for my hands and part of my arms, but my neck, face and the rest of my body itches so bad....

Donkey Ride On The Beach
Instead of taking the kids to the funfair on holiday, spend time on the beach with them. A little tent is ideal for putting up and stowing all kinds of things. A donkey ride is just as much fun as many of the kids rides - and a lot cheaper and greener too.
Check On Repairing Instead Of Replacing
While we have central air conditioning that we primarily use, in summer months. At one time, we only used a "swamp cooler" (an evaporative cooler), but not your basic one.
