Garlic Breadsticks

Garlic Breadsticks from Leftover BreadThe best thing with bread is that when you aren't able to consume all of it you can just transform or upgrade it in any way you want. I have plenty of leftovers from the New Year's eve. I didn't want them to get wasted so here's what I did.


Peanut Butter Balls on parchment paper

Yummy Peanut Butter BallsI made these over Christmas to top off dessert trays. Everyone went crazy over them! Remarks like I can't eat just one. They are very easy and taste better than a Reese cup.



Straws that have flower shapes on the end, as a gift.

A Soda Stream container repurposed into a container for laundry soap.

Use Listerine as a Glass Cleaner - reflections in a mirror

Use Listerine as a Glass CleanerUse Listerine to clean glass. If you haven't tried it you should! I use this on glass, countertops, pet messes, and toilets. It's very inexpensive and all you need is a spray bottle with half Listerine and half water. You can use it liberally on any surface. It will not smear or leave streaks and has a pleasant smell.


Solar outdoor garden lights that have been brought inside to use as emergency lighting.

Solar Lights for Power OutagesWe get our share of power outages and that is usually when my flashlight batteries are dead. I don't feel comfortable lighting lots of candles, so this idea is a good stopgap while waiting for the lights to come back on.

Astro (Terrier Mix)I got this pet yesterday with my sister. We walked in not thinking about buying a puppy and walked out with a puppy! He is the sweetest thing!


Clearing a Clogged Sink Drain

Clearing a Clogged Sink DrainMy bathroom sink had been draining slowing for a while and it was finally time to figure it out. I found a recipe on ThriftyFun for homemade Drano, using salt, baking soda, vinegar and water. It didn't go quite as planned but we were successful in the end.


A security camera showing two cars.

One Security Camera, Two AnglesAt our house, we have one camera set up which can help view people who come to the house since its facing the porch. Problem is; what if they try to break into my car and I miss it? I figured out a way by spending a buck.


Small Duck Pond

Small Duck Pond with RampMy husband created this neat little pond for our duck, using a mortar mixing tub and scrap wood that we had laying around. It has a frame to hold the tub and a built-in ramp. With only one duck, is it easy to clean and refresh the water.


A ream of printing paper that will be saved by the free prints at the library.

Free Printing at the LibraryNot all libraries have this perk, but mine does. I can use their computer and print 50 cents worth every day. Black and white is 10 cents per page and color is 25 cents. When I need to make a copy of something, I take a picture with my cell phone and email it to myself. I then print it out from their computer. If I used their copy machine, it would be 25 cents per page.
