Everyday Containers, Up-cycled! Unrecognizable!! :: Dilly Dally & Flitter
I really like this idea.  I will now start saving cans of all sizes, and keep my eye out for scrapbook paper that will coordinate with different rooms in our home.

Being A Better Husband :: Derek Semmler

This was such a refreshing post to read. This guy gets it, doesn’t he ladies?  He is on a mission to make his wife feel cherished.  Very cool.

One Hundred Ten Days :: Scribbit
If I had an extra $17,000, my children were grown, and my husband could go with me, this is what I would do.  It. Sounds. Awesome.

Thirteen Ounces Or Less :: GiversLog
Did you know if a package weighs 13 ounces or less, you can send it first class?  So I could send my little nephew a package in the mail, for a buck or two, as long as it weighs less than 13 ounces.  At Giverslog, she has a whole bunch of gift ideas that would fit this category, and claims that you can slap a label on just about anything and our US Postal Service will get it where it needs to go.  She has mailed things in TP rolls, water bottles–she even mailed a frisbee with no box, just stuck a label on it.  I should run this one by my dad, since he just retired from the post office–I’ll let you know what he says:)

Got 5 Minutes? :: 5 Minute Life Videotopia
This is your “one stop shop for instructional videos and DYI projects.”  If you got 5 minutes, you can learn something on just about any topic.

Eco-Friendly Wall Art :: ElleDecor
If you have some twigs, spray paint, a glue gun and a mirror, you can make this great looking wall art.

How To Convert Any Toilet To A Low Flow Toilet :: WikiHow
“The New York Times reported that a sealed half gallon container will save half a gallon on each flush.  If you, like most Americans, flush 5 times daily, your family of 5 will save 350 gallons of water every month.  These savings will significantly cut your water bill, too.”

Chalkboard Removable Decals :: AllModern
I want to stick these all over my house to write reminders, love notes, Scripture verses and knock-knock jokes on.:)  I’m gonna have to wait for them to go on sale–or I could just pick up a can of chalk board paint and some stencils, but that would be more permanent and just not as much fun!
