- If you'll be camping: collect the dryer lint in a Ziploc bag to use as a starter. It weighs almost nothing, ignites right away and saves you from having to gather kindling.
- Document your travels with postcards. Jot down a few sentences on the backs. At the end of the trip add the notes to a memories box with cards from other journeys. You have photos as well as a journal
- Next time you take a road trip with a group, buy little car flags from the dollar store and have everyone mount them on their vehicles. You’ll be able to spot each easily.
- The disposable caps in hotel bathrooms make great shoe covers. Just slip a cap over each shoe and you won’t have to worry about getting everything else in your suitcase dirty.
- Here is a fun use for foreign change: attach a piece of magnetic tape to the back of the coin and voila- instant fridge magnet. It makes for an inexpensive souvenir! (I am definetely going to use this tip. I have coins from my trip to England just sitting in my jewelry box taking up space).
Today's Quote: "Positive anything is better than negative nothing."
If you want to taste the BEST lemonade ever, here is recipe I shared last week:
1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
8 c. water
1 1/2 c. lemon juice (juice from lemons or Real Lemon juice)
Combine sugar and 1 c. of water in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve. Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled. Remove seeds from lemons; squeeze juice, retaining pulp, if desired. In large pitcher, combine syrup with remaining water (7 c.) and lemon juice.
It's called "BEST EVER LEMONADE" and it really is!
