    In two months my dd will be 18 but still living at home, possibly for the next year. I'm very apprehensive about what this is going to look like. Lately a lot of conversations have come up between my older dd who has left the nest, my dd that is in the nest, and myself. These conversations...

    Just curious if anyone else had an urge to get a pet or two or three or..... after their kids left the nest? I'm really struggling, its the weirdest thing. I've always turned to animals for comfort. I found myself in a pattern of getting a new pet when life situations changed. I'm not sure...

    Okay, I have about 3 dozen quart glass mayonaise jars. I know years ago, when money was tight, that I would use them as back up jars when doing water bath processing. I was thinking they would be good for storing dry food. I need to find a use for them, or take them to the recyle bin this...

    I have a terrible habit of letting the little waste baskets in our home get almost to the point of overflowing before I empty them. Today I went around the whole house and emptied them all!! Definitely am proud of myself and intend to do so on a regular basis!! How full are your waste baskets?

    We are getting there once again. The first time, we ended up adopting. This time it's mighty scary because 2 of our kids will be moving to group homes. Anyone coming close or are empty nesters?

    I don't remember who wrote the post that I first read about saving the plasticky bags inside cereal boxes for reuse but what a helpful,$$$ saving tip that has been. Now that the family knows to save them too, we wash them and reuse again and again. I bought a paper towel holder that sits on the...

    I was just looking at eBay and saw that people actually buy empty used ink cartridges. I have quite a few here. Not sure why I haven't thrown them away. What would people use these for? I think I may try and put mine on there. Start the whole group at 99 cents and see what I get.
