As the days shorten and temperatures drop, our utility bills are
going to begin to climb. A few small changes can reduce the amount
of energy you use. Here are some tips to help you decrease your
energy consumption and save money on your utility bills.
Put on a sweater and lower you thermostat. Set
your thermostat for between 65 - 68 degrees during the day and
lower it to 62 degrees while you sleep or are at work. If you have
a programmable thermostat, you can set it up now and not have to
worry about lowering and raising the temperature throughout the
Check the weather stripping around your doors and
windows. On a windy day, run your hand around the seams of
your windows and doors to see if you feel any drafts. If you do,
pick up weatherstripping at your local hardware store. You can find
self-adhesive weather stripping.

Money Saving Tips
Sugar and Spice and everything nice, that's what little girls are made of.
Yes, and make-up and jewelry and art projects and books and clothes and…
Does walking in your daughter's room make you want to walk back out again? It probably does to her, too.
I have had some of the best conversations spending the day with my kids organizing their bedrooms. I view my kids' rooms as their mini apartments in our home. As they age, I update the décor in their rooms as well as the furniture.
Just like I regularly purge and organize my home, I am teaching them to do the same in their little mini apartments.
If you have a girl and a boy, I suggest starting with your daughter's room. It will take longer than your son's, but it will be more familiar to you and she will tolerate organizing longer.

Stuff We Like
Stepping into my kitchen is always fun, as I pass the pots of green filled with fragrant smells and beautiful leaves ready to be plucked and added to soups, stews, breads or whatever else I take a fancy to.
Fresh herbs in the kitchen are a delight, and they are actually pretty easy to grow. With Spring arriving, many of you out there are wanting to get some gardening done. The sad truth is that most people will start to garden, and then end up failing because they take on too much right off the bat.
An easy way to start gardening is to just begin by growing some indoor herbs. Here are some of my favorite herbs to grow, that are also very easy to grow.
1. Pineapple Sage. This easy-to-grow sage plant smells of heavenly pineapple. It's perfect for soups, stews and Italian dishes, but I'm particularly a fan of just smelling its beautiful aroma on a daily basis.
2. Cilantro. This plant is so hearty, that it's pretty near impossible to kill. So if you have a thumb that is nowhere near a shade of green, then this should make you happy. Cilantro is great for when you're wanting to add a little bit of oomph to Mexican night.
Unfortunately, more and more people in today's society are becoming
single parents. The reason for this could be due to the growing
divorce rate or perhaps the decreased rate of marriages in the
first place. According to the U.S. Census Bureau in November, 2009,
there are approximately 13.7 million single parents in the United
States today, and those parents are responsible for raising 21.8
million children (approximately 26% of children under 21 in the
Being a parent in today's world is expensive either way, but being
a single parent is beyond affordable! However, 13.7% of parents are
expected to do this in one way or another, everyday. As for myself,
I became a single parent of three children in 2006 after my
divorce. Is it possible? Yes, it's possible. I'm living proof one
can do it even in today's society, however, be prepared to make

Turn off the oven! It's officially summer and (at least here in Los Angeles) it's HOT.
After a rather unpleasant experience last week when I foolishly roasted some bell peppers for our dinner and thereby raised the temperature of the whole apartment, I started thinking about cooler ways to cook.
Here are a few ideas I came up with.
