For seasonal practices, photograph the "old" way as a record of what to do or not to do in the future. For example, in gardening you will have a future reference of what you like and don't like about your landscaping. Likewise, holiday decorations...furniture arrangements...outfits with accessories...

One way 2 change the appearance/energy of your home are photographs! 4 the price of an affordable frame you can take a photograph or one online & mount it 4 a new look 4 pennies! Size is irrelevant; you can take a number of 4x6 hanging them as a collection for a WOW factor. You can change them by seasons or whatever moves you. A 4x6 @ Rite-Aid is 19 cents. I always look for free frames on Freecycle.com or the local thrift or yard sale. Think out of the box or out of the frame so 2 speak!
I read an article yesterday about someone who rented a car, turned it in in good condition, yet got a letter from the car rental agency months later, claiming they caused thousands of dollars in damage to the vehicle. Unfortunately, they had no way of proving that they didn't cause that damage. When renting a car, it is a good idea when you take it back to the lot, to take dated and time-stamped photographs of the vehicle and save them, along with copies of the return receipt, for six months.
1.Unstick photos - Picture this: Water spills on a batch of photographs, causing them to stick together. If you pull them apart, your pictures will be ruined. Don't be so hasty. Stick them in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Then use a butter knife to gingerly separate the photos. If they don't come free, place them back in the freezer. This works for envelopes & stamps too. (Con't)
2.Extend candle life - Place candles in the freezer for at least two hours before burning. They will last longer.
