Homemade Weed Killer 1 gallon of white vinegar, 1/2 cup salt, Liquid dish soap (any brand), Empty spray bottle. Put salt in the empty spray bottle and fill it the rest of the way up with white vinegar. Add a squirt of liquid dish soap. This solution works best if you use it on a hot day. Spray it on the weeds in the morning, and as it heats up it will do its work. Good to know! by luella

Breakfast Smoothie Extraordinaire This is whole30 compliant & wonderful!!! So exciting to have this as an alternative to eggs... I pretty much want to have it every morning. Sometimes I use strawberries instead or in addition to. The almond butter & spinach make a weird brown color, but don't let that turn you off. WONDERFUL (coconut supposed to be canned kind) by gay

You Don't Have to Be Pretty. You don't owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don't owe it to your mother, you don't owe it to your children, you don't owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked "female". I'm not saying that you SHOULDN'T be pretty if you want to. (You don't owe UN-prettiness to feminism, in other words.) Pretty is pleasant, and fun, and satisfying, and makes people smile, often even at you. But in the hierarchy of importance, pretty stands several rungs down from happy, is way below healthy, and if done as a penance, or an obligation, can be so far away from independent that you may have to squint really hard to see it in the haze. But what does you-don't-have-to-be-pretty mean in practical, everyday terms? It means that you don't have to apologize for wearing things that are held to be "unflattering" or "unfashionable" -- especially if, in fact, they make you happy on some level deeper than just being pretty does. So what if your favorite color isn't a "good" color on you? So what if you are "too fat" (by some arbitrary measure) for a sleeveless top? If you are clean, are covered enough to avoid a citation for public indecency, and have bandaged any open wounds, you can wear any color or style you please, if it makes you happy. by lorena

Going on a cruise and don’t want to spend a fortune on drinks? Pour your vodka in an empty Listerine bottle, add 3 drops of blue food coloring and 1 drop of green. Wa-la! You now have a 5th of vodka to use for your beverages!!! If you drink a dark liquor, like whiskey, simply use the white listerine bottles!  I don't even know what category to put this in but it made me LOL so hard! by nell

DIY: Decoupage Plates - Sometimes a large, empty wall is the elephant in the room. The space can be hard to fill, yet just as awkward to leave empty. I think a collection of similar objects, such as decoupaged plates, is the perfect solution. Clear glass plates are easy to find, and I use color copies of my own hand-painted designs as the artwork to back them. by mindy

when I was in France (which i still have a lot to post) I was inspired by their breakfast set up. The table had recycled wine bottles filled with all kinds of juices. I thought that was amazing, so I filled a couple with orange juice and almond milk. If you were having a brunch, you could use wine bottles and fill them up with pineapple juice, orange juice, iced coffee, apple juice, and milk. by chrystal

The best way to water your garden is to set up a drip irrigation system with an automatic timer. But what if you do not have that option?. If so, a great option is to bury a milk jug with holes drilled in it next to your plants. To water all you have to do is stick the hose in the top of the jug and fill up the milk jug and you are done! It also makes it easy to fertilize, add a scoup of fertilizer into the jug and add water and your done! by TamidP

Strawberry Pyramid. Build a pyramid planter for your strawberries. Each hole in the concrete block will hold more than enough soil for a strawberry plant. Wooden pyramid options I've seen waste too much soil under unused space. Once the plants grow in you will have a nice strawberry terrace effect. If you just make a border of blocks and don't terrace out the center, fill it with soil to plant some herbs or veggies. -gardening, landscaping, by Gardendiva
