Soft Hands

Slather your hands with bag balm. Rub as you would with hand lotion paying a little extra attention to the nail beds. Slip into cotton gloves, your gardening gloves or latex gloves while relaxing or doing a chore. When you remove them your hands will be soft and supple.

Dog Wipes

Many dogs, and cats for that matter, need constant cleaning around their eyes and/or mouth. Soft shop towels are fantastic to use to gently clean these areas. Just tear the amount required (no sense wasting a whole towel on a small animal), moisten with warm water, wipe.

Gentle for the pet and you can just throw it away. Makes sanitary sense to me!

Available at auto shops. Usually less expensive than the big stores that they are also available in.

Organize by Category: Plastic

Oh those nagging, messy cabinets that have mis-matched plastic ware (maybe never used jars, too) piled high because they are assorted sizes.

Throw out/recycle all the ones that are not PBA free. Toss the ones without lids or bottoms for that matter. If possible, replace them with PBA free or glass storage conttainers that nest and have interchangeable lids.

Mason jars also make excellent storage containers.

Organize by Category

One room at a time, one category at a time.

Today's focus: anything made of cloth. Pillows, linens, clothing, curtains, dish towels, etc. Even rugs!

Save, throw away or donate? Taking care of this one area will make a big difference in how you feel.

Grocery Gift Cards to Me!

I learned from the government shutdown that a sudden pay loss can be crippling to a family. When the dust settled and the paychecks resumed I bought a gift card from the grocery stores I frequent. Each week I add $10 to one of them. Should an emergency occur, I have some back up to be able to feed my family.

Pet Back Pack

We keep a backpack in the car filled with dog supplies. When we take our dogs hiking or on trips, or even on errands, everything they may need is in one place ready to go.

The back pack includes: Bottle of water, bowls for food and water, leashes, can opener and canned food (one dog only has a few teeth), dry food, towel and plastic bags for cleanup.

Do One Thing, Do it Well - Cynthia Heald

The author foused on this at a recent women's event highlighting simplicity. You can gracefully say no because your focus is on one important activity. You are honored to be asked, but no, not at this time. Another point, never just automatically say yes. Pray, then get back with a prayed out, thought out response.
