Making My Indoor Air Better with Venta Airwasher

Making My Indoor Air Better with Venta Airwasher

While I love to have the windows open when the weather is nice, it is definitely the minority of the time that happens. The windows are usually all closed up and the air conditioner or heater is running. I want my indoor air quality to be better no matter what. Venta Airwasher sent me one of their units a couple of months ago and it really does make a huge … Continue Reading →
The New IKEA Store in St. Louis, Missouri

The New IKEA Store in St. Louis, Missouri

Yesterday I finally got to visit the IKEA store that just opened here in St. Louis. I had never been to an IKEA before but have browsed their online site often.

Fun Food Bar Ideas for Entertaining and Food Bar Tips

I am very lucky that my family gets together at least once a month. We celebrate birthdays and play card and board games and of course, we eat. What I have found is that my family loves interactive meals where they can build their own plates just the way they like them.

How to Save Money with Your Freezer

How to Save Money with Your Freezer

Last year we finally bought a small deep freeze and it has been great. Our refrigerator is a side-by-side so the freezer space there is limited, but with the extra freezer we have a lot more room now. As much as 30 to 40 percent of all food in North America is wasted, according to the United Nations Environment Programme. That’s about 20 pounds per person every month! In terms … Continue Reading →
