Works for me – Gift cards

What do you do when you have to shop for those hard-to-buy for people?

Some people may think gift cards are tacky but for hard to buy people they really are a lifesaver. Just be careful that you don’t get caught in the gift card scam as I call it – if you don’t use the gift card in a certain amount of time they actually loose value.

Works for me – Spring cleaning

Works for me …. spring cleaning tips. Here are some new ways to use Alka-Seltzer around your house. It’s simple, and fun (kids can help!)

  1. To clean a toilet — Drop in two Alka-Seltzer tablets, wait twenty minutes, brush, and flush. The citric acid and effervescent action clean vitreous china.
  2. To remove burned on grease from a pan — Fill the pot or pan with water, drop in six Alka-Seltzer tablets, let soak for one hour, then scrub as usual.
  3. To unclog a drain — Clear the sink drain by dropping three Alka-Seltzer tablets down the drain followed by a cup of Heinz White Vinegar. Wait a few minutes, then run the hot water.

Works for me – Meals Matter

Running to the grocery store every day can be a real pain chore, so I like to try to plan what our family is going to eat each week. I try to plan out 3 complete meals and then we can have leftovers in-between or filler meals if necessary from what is in the pantry.

I recently found Meals Matter a website that helps me with the planning and the grocery list at the same time!
