However, today I am going to share a much more fun use for tin cans. Check out these cute cans!
I have been making my own weed killer for years. Ever since I heard that Round up has a big link to cancer, I decided I would use only weed killers with commonly known ingredients. My homemade formula does not work as well as chemicals, but the trade off is more than worth it. However, recently I have changed one ingredients in my homemade weed killer that I have been using for the last few years. That change makes a big difference!
If you are anything like me, food storage is always a problem. It either takes up a lot of shelf space or room in your freezer. There is one method that takes up very little room on the shelf and no room in your freezer. Dehydrating! It is easy to do and takes up so little space, you will not believe how much food you can store in a cabinet or closet shelf. Grow your own vegetables or buy them in season and you will be eating them all winter long.

Standard practice today is to keep almost all foods in the refrigerator. Most of the time we don't even think about it, we just put things in the refrigerator, but did you know that many of those things really don't need to go in the refrigerator?

Sometimes you find yourself with too many eggs to use before they spoil. Maybe there was a great sale, or your hens have been overly prolific in laying or you bought a dozen forgetting that you already had a couple dozen. Regardless of how it happened, it does happen. What do you do ?
The barnwood look is so popular right now, it is used in crafts, in home decor in furniture and much more! The only problem is that now that everyone wants it, of course, the price has skyrocketed! Even the people with barns that are falling down want big money for the wood, even if you remove it yourself! However, there is a very easy way to make new wook look gray and weathered like barnwood. You won't believe how easy it is!
If you really love laundry that smells great, you have probably already tried store bought laundry scent boosters like Unstoppables. While they don't do anything towards making your clothes cleaner, they do make your laundry smell wonderful! The downside is they are pretty expensive and I have often wondered exactly what is in them. Most all commercially made laundry products are usually full of all kinds of chemicals and artificial scents. Manufacturers are not required to put all the ingredients on the label, reading labels will not help you. The best way to deal with this problem is to make your own.....it is so easy you will not believe it!!
Over the last few years, I have found myself using tortillas more and more. I use them instead of bread for sandwiches. (otherwise known as "wraps") I toast them in a bowl shape and put salad in them. Of course there are tons of Mexican food applications like soft tacos, enchiladas, tostadas, etc. I have also toasted them in triangles for a crunchy snack, either with salt or with cinnamon sugar. Their uses are endless! But, as always with stuff that is good, they are not that cheap, so I decided to learn to make my own. I was shocked at how simple it was.
