Mayonnaise is one of those foods that most people don't think too much about when they slather it on their sandwiches, but it's surprisingly easy to make, easy to add flavor to, makes a huge difference in your sandwiches, and can be made in less then 2 minutes. Here's how.

Gel air fresheners are easily available at any grocery or department store, but they're not exactly cheap, and you're limited to whatever horrid smells the manufacturers give you. Thankfully, with a little gelatin, essential oil, and water, you can make your own suspended air freshener to keep your home smelling great for weeks for much less.

The fable goes that the nice white-haired appliance guys are a dying breed and they're way better than their outsourced, van-driving, retail store counterparts. But sometimes the local guy is just as bad as the guy in the store wearing the official colored shirt. When her Kenmore model 417 front-loading washer went bust-o, Jane discovered she was able to save $400 in repair costs by learning how to fix it herself from Youtube videos.

I use the tubs to put it in and they are wide and it makes it easy to mix when the oil goes to the top. Plus it better then the organic one that are pre-made in jars that are who know how old and many have other oils etc added to them. 100% organic nut butter you get made fresh is the best.

I also leave out the organic butter that last a couple weeks or more.

Cucumbers, Lemon I keep in the fridge but guess that is wrong.

Credit may be difficult to come by, but card issuers still need you and your money more than you need the credit. If you're thinking about signing up for a new credit card, don't just apply online, give the issuer a call and see if you can negotiate some of the terms. According to Credit.com, a little haggling before you sign on the dotted line can save you some serious money.

Love to do this with wheat berries at night, for cereal in the AM.

Thermos bottles were designed to keep hot beverages from cooling down so workers could have a hot cup of coffee all day long. Their insulating properties make Thermos bottles ideal to cook foods that take a long time to prepare such as oatmeal, dried beans, and whole grain cereals. Simply bring your ingredients to a boil and pour everything into the thermos and give it time to cook.
