SO GOOD AND EASY: in a 8x8 Pyrex (I use clear) layer: 1lb raw hamburger meat, chopped onion, 1 can cream of chicken soup, shredded Colby Jack cheese, and tater tots.  Use the cooking directions on the tater tot bag (usually a bit longer I like it a little crunchy!) I use the clear Pyrex so that I can peek at the bottom just to be sure the meat is cooked!  ENJOY by lucinda

DIY Lotion Fabric Softener. I want to be clear that I ABSOLUTELY AM NOT suggesting you BUY lotion to make this. HOWEVER, if you're like me and you have some lotion collecting dust, maybe you should give this a try. See, I liked the smell, I just didn't like it as lotion. I used a 1:1:2 ratio of lotion, white vinegar & WARM water. I just put it straight in a jar with a lid & gave it a good shake. It will seperate so shake before use. As for by Mummigurl

Poop trays make for easy cleanup. This is the way my husband built our hen coop. It is the greatest. I just pull them out and sweep the chicken poop into a big tub and it is ready to be added to composting. Absolutely love it! Clean-up is a breeze. by jeri

How to Build a Worm Tower - This visually illustrates the concept of building a worm farm in your raised garden bed, where you want your compost worms to go to work for you, feeding your vegetables with nutrients. This system allows you to recycle food scraps back into your soil. PVC is NOT safe to use as it leaches chemicals which can end up in your food - I recommend clay pipes or food grade plastic buckets with recycle numbers 1, 2, 4 or 5 (not 3, 6 or 7). | The Micro Gardener by larakie

Mod Podge. Love the stuff, but after a while it can get quite expensive. So for years now I’ve used Elmer's School Glue. I buy it by the gallon and make up the Mod Podge recipe as I need it in a mason jar. Just add half water, half Elmer's glue, replace the lid, shake it up and you’re ready to go. If you need it thicker, use less water! My preferred rate of dilution is 3/4 Glue, 1/4 water. by virgie

I just made a batch of this.  I didn't have any food coloring, so I used a random packet of kool-aid I found in the junk drawer.  Really fast to make (which is good for my 2-year old's attention span) and perfect consistency.  I will definitely make more.  I'll use beets, greens, carrots, etc. for natural coloring in the future. by charlotte
