Social Security For Children
Your child is eligible to draw social security if one of his or her parents draw. If it is less than the court ordered amount, the parent would have to pay the extra.
Wildlife: Squirrel At Wedding
This little furry friend helped himself to our wedding cake. I know, he was just hungry, and a squirrel has to eat too, right?
Homemade Foot Powder
This is a guide about homemade foot powder. Store bought foot powders can be expensive, often not very effective and sometimes full of noxious chemicals. Making your own foot powder can save money and will ensure you know exactly what you're using on your body.
Decorated Candy Jar
Decorate an old jar (any kind of container will work!) with scrapbooking paper
Organizing and Storing Photos
I'm overwhelmed with old photo prints, 3 or 4 generations worth. Any suggestions on sorting, and storing? I'm not a scrapbooker, but eventually, would like to do one for each of my children.
Lab Forgets How to Use Dog Door
We have a 2 and half year old Lab. She has been house trained for a good year and half. She has her own doggy door which she comes in and out of when she pleases. She is suddenly acting like she can't remember how to get out of the house.
What is This Plant?
I am wondering if there is anyone who lives in Florida or where it is warm, that might know what this plant is. I live in Michigan and was given a plant that grows Florida. It looks just like my aloe plant except that it has longer thorns on it and they are sharper.
Granny Square Heart
Using a granny as a base, you can make this pretty heart for any occasion.
"Vintage" Cake Platter
I had two china dinnerware plates stored in my cabinet; I wanted to display them or use them. I made matching cake platters. I used an inexpensive stemware piece, coarse sandpaper, quickset epoxy glue.
The kid's really enjoyed helping with this one. They're fun and cute to make for ornaments in the kids' rooms.
Mr. Jingles (Dumbo Rat)
Mr. Jingles is a 5 month old Dumbo rat. My husband bought me Mr. Jingles (and gave him his name) just last week. Mr. Jingles loves to sit on your shoulder, and he loves to eat macaroni and cheese!
Three "R's" That Make You and Your Pet Happy
Routines simplify life for both pets and pet owners. From the time you bring a new puppy, dog, kitten, or cat into your home, you should establish a routine for feeding, walking, playing, and quiet time.
Gasoline Smell on Shoes
Somehow, gasoline spilled on my brand new shoes. I have washed them in cold water with baking soda and detergent twice to no avail. The smell is still there. What else can be done?
"Dump-Stir" Stew (Crockpot)
This is my basic recipe for something I call "dump-stir" stew. The items you dump into the crock pot can be altered depending on what you have available. Frugal cooks aren't wasteful and this stew is an excellent way to use up leftovers you have in the refrigerator.
Freeze Sliced Beets
While reading the solutions to the question about freezing cooked beets, I realized I could freeze them like I do fresh berries.
Get Partial Fill On New Prescriptions
Due to a serious illness, I developed allergy/reactions to various medications, especially prescription drugs. This was costing me a small fortune, as I would fill a script and after 1 or 2 pills have to dispose of the rest because I could not tolerate them.
Hot Towels For Ingrown Hair
Keep applying hot towels, especially when it is infected. I wet a wash cloth and place it in the microwave, make sure you do not burn yourself. I wrapped it in another wash cloth and used it that way until it cooled down.
Make Nail Polish From Eye Makeup
I always love it when something I do is shown on TV (or in a book, etc.) and now it's "cool". When I saw a episode of Rachael Ray showing something I had learned in high school, I thought I'd share. Being Thrifty is a way of life for me.
Use Bag Balm For Dry Scaly Skin
Winter is here. Being in the nursing field, I wash my hands probably more than a 100 times a day. Using the alcohol based sanitizers irritate my skin. Bag Balm is a wonderful substitute for lotion. Use it at night and see what a difference it makes.
