Green Tip Tuesday - Saving Up

 Today I wanted to talk about something that most of us go through every year.... Power Outages, No or low water flow and more. What do you do and are ya'll trully ready when natural disasters happen? Well, there is a way that you can prepare with out spending a DIME! Well, for certain items that is.

I wanted to let ya'll know how to prepare your own water storage/back-up. It will be a short post because it's just that simple & easy to do.

Who buys the 48-59oz jugs of juice?? Well, instead of throwing them away or recycling them, just rinse them out and poor a bit of soap in there and wash/rinse it out and fill it up with either filtered water (if you are going to use the water to drink) or tap water (if you will be using it to take a bath). Ideally, you would want both kinds of jugs filled. Be sure it is a food grade plastic or better yet, BPA FREE jugs! And if you have the 5 gallon jugs of water those would be great to! You would also need about 5-10 gallons per person, but that would be about 10 orange juice jugs per person! But you really only need about 2 gallons to take a bath and to wash clothes. So just figure out how much you would really need for everyone in your family per day. It is rare to go weeks without a clean water supply, so prepare appropriately!

So now, you don't have to rush to the grocery store like everyone else when a hurricane is in the near furutre and you are saving tons of money. With us living in Texas and prone to Hurricanes during the fall/winter season I would start saving jugs every January (buying about 2-4 orange juice jugs a month or so), and then start cleaning them out and wash them again during the summer, and then start filling them up in July/August. You would save each jug for about 3-4 months and then throw out the water for safety reasons.

Now i hope you can prepare for the next natural disaster that may happen near you.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
