We had a busted drawer in our vanity that we couldn't afford to replace so se made a flase "Front" that looked like a drawer and permanently attached it to the vanity. It looked like a drawer but didn't open (like the "Drawers" you might have underneath a sink).
If you can, work a year (and travel too!) before attending grad school.
Is this your effort to start a paper trail in case you get busted for yur huge stash? Don't worry, we've got you (r no-poo head) covered Just send the Feds our way, ok?
Thanks for the link to the wesite! I hadn't heard of her project before As close as I ever came to "streamlining" my wardrobe like that was when I did extended travelling abroad. I was limited to my suitcase size (or backpack size, when we went on trips), and I found that I really could simplify my wardrobe A LOT. I still have trouble (back at home) with keeping things that no longer fit (I keep them - that's the problem lol), but I find I buy a lot LESS when I...
No real ideas, sorry - just want to sub and ride on your coattails - we need *serious* affordable decorating ideas in our bedroom.
Cool swimsuit! I like it A LOT (someone hold my hands so I am not tempted to buy something I don't need lol). I usually buy my swimsuits at the end of season clearance sales at department stores. We have a pool in our back yard so I have more suits than I *ever* had in my life, but it is nice to rotate them At this point, me and my bulgy belly wear bikinis whose tops/bottoms often coordinate with one another. But I agree with a PP who said that spending a...
Just wanted to drop a quick note of thanks to you and your frequent posts on no-poo (heheheh). I have some fiercly unruly curly hair that has been in a bun or braid for a year After your nagging (heheh you're quite convincing) I finally gave BS/ACV a try and I am in LOVE! I wear my hair down a few days out of the week now (it's 100 degrees outside though so HOT) and I get so many compliments on it! I have a handful of people here who are now trying no-poo and getting...

I LOVE having frozen onions and peppers (seasoning veggies, basically) and use them often in cooking. My tip: I learned you can cut and freeze ginger root for up to 3 months. CHANGED MY LIFE!!!! I was always modifying recipes or skipping them altogether bc I couldn't easily keep ginger in the house (it would rot before I used it or get hidden in the fridge or whatever). Now I can cook with the ginger I love (what a romantic story!). We freeze beans when we...
I laugh (cry?) at the "affordable" ads as well. But as far as housing goes (apartments or single-family), HUD calls an "affordable" house one that costs at or below 30% of the owners/renters monthly income. You shouldn't be spending more than that on housing (though - yeah. Lots of people do). Er - no idea what the Dept of housing and Urban development has to say on the affordability of coffee tables
