As the clock ticks down to the LOST series finale, I'm personally feeling a sense of relief. Yeah, I'll miss Sawyer, Locke, Desmond and Hurley (especially Hurley!), but this last season has definitely left me feeling WTF? and I'm really ready for it to be over. It also seems like there's no way possible, after 6-7 years of twists and turns, flashbacks and flash forwards, that the show can end well. And by that, I mean that I can't see how the writers can possibly live up to the fan-induced hype and come up with an ending that won't disappoint a large number of people.
Of course that doesn't mean I won't be glued to my TV set come Sunday
Giving up disposable products, plastic shopping bags and other
"conveniences" of modern-day life can be challenging, because we
think they make our lives easier. The New Year is a great time to
challenge those perceptions.
Here are a handful of quick, eco-friendly resolutions that might
even make your life a little easier.
Buy in bulk
You'll pay less per pound of food, and make fewer trips to the
store, when you buy in bulk. These airtight glass canisters make storing your
extra non-perishables easy; you might need freezer bags, or even a
vacuum sealer, for perishable items.

The holiday season is in full swing and many of you are traveling during this busy time. In the hustle and bustle of making plans and booking flights and hotels, you may overlook one small issue.
These small parasites can be found anywhere from motels to five-star hotels. People often have the misconception that bed bugs only reside in cheap motels, but the truth is bed bugs just need to hitch a ride on an unsuspecting human in order to find a new home.
A recent study showed that bed bugs take longer to find a place to bite on hairy arms vs. non-hairy arms. However, this doesn't mean that people who have hair won't get bitten. They just have more time to escape. If all this bed bug talk is starting to gross you out, here are some preventative measures you can take to prevent an infestation in your home.

Frugal people sometimes miss the importance of the splurge. When you can buy three days worth of groceries for $5, a latte just seems like a poor investment. But if that latte becomes important enough, a frugal person will find somewhere else to squeeze out that $5.
Little did I know when I wrote last week's blog post about replacing my washer promising to follow-up with outlining the replacement of my dryer vent line, that I would spend hour upon hour in the crawl space this weekend. And still not get the dryer vent replaced!
