Dishwasher not doing the job these days?
Detergent tablets may be to blame! Shreds of the tablet packaging can find their way into the dishwasher sprayers and block tiny holes that spray the dishes. Remove the sprayer arms and clear any blockages to restore the dishwasher's cleaning power.

Hint 1: Replace your expensive Dry Shampoo
Replace expensive store-bought dry shampoo with this DIY version you can make for pennies! Mix equal parts corn starch and baking soda in a bowl. Add a few drops of lavender essential oil, mix well, then funnel into a salt shaker. Sprinkle mixture onto your roots and work into scalp with fingers to freshen up your hairstyle on the go.

Hint 2: Keep The Fridge Organized With "Cook's Choice"
Before going grocery shopping, plan a "cook's choice" dinner, designed to use up leftovers. Toss the last bits of assorted vegetables and meats into a stir-fry, or chop and add to soup.
French toast for dinner makes good use of stale bread and the last few eggs, while lasagna transforms scraps of meat and cheese into a hearty meal. After dinner, toss expired foods and wipe down the refrigerator. You're ready to shop!
