Washing walls the easy way, (great for horizontally challenged)

I was mopping our wooden floors with the sponge head that is best for wood, and noticed a bunch of smudges on a wall.

Fresh Frozen Fruit

I love my fresh fruit, but I found I was wasting my money when the fruit would go bad before I could finish it. Now to save money if it gets close to browning or going bad I now fresh freeze it. Slice it into small peices and reuse the fresh frozen for smoothies or fruit salad as needed!!!

Then $50 goes into my IRA and the other $50 is for something special - a pedicure, night out with friends, a movie, new shoes. It's fun to have ...
