    Hi, just wanting to know if the Niacin and vitamin E oil worked. I am new on here and commented I think on the sight about my story, but can't seem to find it. I have been battling Cow Itch for three months on my finger and it seems to be spreading to my palm from under the skin.

    Hi, I saw some great re-purposing ideas on Facebook and joined to find more, but I can't seem to. Could you point me in the right direction please? Love this site and have gotten some great ideas from FB posts!

    Hi Liss, I just want to say thank you for this site. I'm very excited to get started learning new things and new ways of doing things I already know how to do.

    Dear Liss,
    I was very excited to make the laundry sauce. I really messed up the first batch. The first page with the list of ingredients and the amounts to use, I misplaced after showing it to my daughter-in-law. I remembered the ingredients as I was familiar with all of them.......and...I remembered reading,"use all of it". Unfortunately, I used all of the washing soda and borax in addition to the Fels Naptha! big mess. Have six jars of something, don't have any idea what to do with it.
    Today I tried again, with better luck. However, I think I used too much water, the jars were too full. Also, I wonder if 4 hrs. might be too long to wait. The solid part was TOO solid. My blender couldn't blend it. I took a long knife and sliced into the mass several times and then blended it. It worked fine. Haven't used it yet. I'm wanting to print off the labels for the laundry sauce but every time I try there is a message that I can't print labels until I'm a member -[I am]- and have to have at least 1 post - [I do ]. Now what do I do?

Financial Freedom is Huge, but THIS is Worth So MUCH MORE

by Liss on 01-13-2016 at 11:40 AM
I've been running this Finance/budgeting website for over 15 years now and Financial Freedom is Huge, but what I've come to understand in the past 15 years is, Emotional Freedom is worth so much more.

If you learn nothing else from reading this site, I implore you to learn this fact: What Other People Think of You is NONE of Your Business.

Ready for the Holidays?

by Liss on 12-05-2015 at 01:46 PM
The kids are mostly grown now.. one is a sophomore in college and the other is a Senior is High School. Santa is dead and gone in their eyes and getting them together in the same room during holidays is like pulling teeth (mainly due to their jobs). I've gotten to the point where the holidays don't really mean much and I don't really look forward them

Why I absolutely LOATHE Facebook...

Campfire Hot Sandwiches-delete-fb.jpgFacebook, Facebook, Facebook.... I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOATHE this "resource" online. It is the #1 source of contentment in my life because it's an evil necessity for Websites and blogs. The vile media has put so much emphasis on it that people fall all over it. Here are just a few reasons why I don't

The Social Media Era- Are we raising a generation with No Respect for Basic Decency?

by Liss on 03-12-2015 at 10:19 AM
One Pot Pasta-privacy.jpgLately while browsing the internet it seems we've entered the era of no Privacy, no decency and no respect. This morning I was perusing my facebook feed and came across photographs taken at a funeral, of the deceased in his casket. The photo exhibited several family members standing over the deceased, in tears. Why, pray

What a Litigious Society we live in . . .

by Liss on 02-03-2015 at 09:02 AM
I rarely listen to the news these days, partly because it's rarely any actual "news" and instead mostly hype designed to fill people with baseless fear.. but on the rare occasion that I do subject myself to the drivel of the morning news I am usually floored by the insanity of the world.

Take this morning for instance.. people are literally
