With all of the controversy regarding the ongoing damage to the environment that is bombarding us on the news, you may be tempted to pat yourself on the back for your contributions. Recycling is definitely a great step to take towards doing your part to reduce your footprint on the earth. There are many different rules regarding what to recycle and how. If you have curbside pickup for your recycling (we just got this about…

While there’s plenty of controversy surrounding whether or not eggs are healthy, there’s no denying that there are a multitude of ways to eat them, either on their own or as part of a meal. In a typical week, we go through about a dozen eggs, but from time to time, we’ll easily go through twice that amount. As we’ve become more conscious of the amount of waste we produce at home, we’ve taken a…

If you’re like me, you are not a morning person. At all. The sun makes you want to hiss like a badly-mannered cat or a vampire waking from a 3,000-year sleep. I’m definitely a night owl. I’d much rather be up till the wee hours of the morning than get up at the crack of dawn. So to compensate for my late nights, I would sleep in in the morning and wake up gradually. Enter…

My wife and I have two kids, two dogs, and three cats. As you can imagine, that leads to a lot of messes. Although we try to be environmentally conscious, we often take the easy route when it means it will save us some time and effort. In this case, I’m referring to using paper towels over cloth towels. While most of us would probably prefer to produce less waste, using paper towels often makes…

Paper towels are a convenience item that’s a daily staple for many of us, including me and my family. Although we use cloth towels when cleaning up large messes, we always resort to paper towels for just about anything else. We have always thrown our paper towels right in the trash bin, but as we’ve been trying to become more eco-friendly, we’ve started taking a look at some of our daily habits to see if…

When it comes to having a semblance of order within our society, we typically look to our law enforcement agencies to help keep things in balance. We have all seen situations where there are riots and things seemingly get out of control, as well as times where we see a little bit too much force being used by the police. When these situations happen, people within society normally want to help, but they aren’t sure of…

Although we’ve become less and less reliant on the mail system with advances in technology, there are still numerous occasions when it make sense to send something through snail mail. Whether you’re paying your bills, sending out wedding invitations, or mailing thank you letters, the mailing system still makes sense for plenty of us in the right situations. If you’ve ever mailed out even 10 items at once, you know that licking your envelopes to…

My entire life, I’ve had terrible allergies. Cats, dogs, pollen, you name it. All year long, it never stops. As you can imagine, I go through a lot of tissues. I’ve always thrown my tissues right in the trash, but honestly, I’ve never questioned whether or not this is the best place for them. It occurred to me recently that there might be better alternatives. My wife and I have become much better about doing…

Whether your home feels safe or not, it’s never a bad idea to have some hidden safe ideas to explore because even if you do have a state-of-the-art wall safe, it’s likely going to be noticeable. In the event of home invasions when a burglar knows there’s a safe there for valuables, they’ll demand you open it. That’s where they’ll expect you to store your valuables. It can be a good idea to have safes…

We all shed hair on a regular basis. In fact, it’s considered completely normal to lose 50-100 hairs every day. With all that hair falling out, where should it go? If you have pets, you’re probably used to seeing even more hair, or fur, all over the place. We have two dogs that shed like crazy. We can brush them one day and still pull clumps out of them the next. We’ve always thrown our…
