Cut Tomato Sandwich on plate

Tomato SandwichOne of my favorite summertime lunches is a juicy tomato sandwich. I remember when I was growing up in the 50's, in the summertime someone would bring tomato sandwiches to the covered dish dinners at church. The tomato sandwiches were the first sandwiches to disappear.

Recycled Coffee Lid Animals - five lid animals

Recycled Coffee Lid AnimalsThis is a fun way to recycle coffee lids by making cute animals with paint and/or construction/paper. This is a great activity to do with your child. You can actually tie a ribbon/string knot from the top (of the hole) as an ornament, or make this as a banner for a party, glue to a craft stick or play as is!

A vinyl placemat being used a shelf liner.

Vinyl Placemats as Shelf LinersI purchased vinyl placemats from the Dollar Store to line my cabinets. Easy to measure and cut to your exact specifications. These liners can be wiped with a damp cloth and will last a lifetime. I have also placed these liners in my bathroom vanity drawers and on my refrigerator shelves and drawers.

 

An outdoor car covered with a plastic shower curtain liner.

Protecting Outdoor Toys with a Shower Curtain LinerIt was an endless battle keeping the outdoor toys clean. My friend suggested going to the dollar store and getting shower curtains. I got the liners because they are white. Perfect solution! I save water, detergent and time.

 

Sunless tanning lotion next to a jar of regular lotion.

A hot water bottle partly filled with water.

Freeze a Hot Water Bottle To Cool DownIt is a balmy 111 degrees in Los Angeles today and I've found my best ally is my hot water bottle. Before popping it in the freezer, I fill it up with water only halfway, because water expands as it freezes. In a couple hours, I have a large, soft, super cold pack to hold up against my body to cool down.

How I Lost 125 Pounds on a BudgetI'd always been a bit overweight growing up. I just thought that was the norm since most of my family members always carried extra weight. "We're a big-boned family," we'd joke. But our appetites were huge, especially coming from cultural backgrounds where food was the primary offering in times of celebration... or any occasion.

My Cat Is Afraid of Me - black kitty outside

My Cat Is Afraid of MeMy cat is a black British shorthair who is five, but I've had him about 3 years. I got him from a animal shelter and he seemed very scared of humans and would lash out at people. I've been slowly getting him to be a lovely pet and since around 6 months ago he is a saint who never does anything to hurt people.
