Simply Saturday

     Good morning I hope everyone has had a great week. It has been a week of ups and downs here and we venture deeper into getting healthy, getting in shape and getting out of Texas for good. As I go on day 4 without a soda or caffeine at all I wonder why I ever had it. Still not sleeping well but I am feeling better once I actually get up and moving. It has become a bigger and bigger reality that it is going to be very difficult to make it out of here in the 261 days we have planned for. Land where we would like to go is going up and up, but we are trying to not let this get us down saving away as much as we can. From making sure every light bulb is turned off in the house, to unplugging everything that we can before bed. Every dollar counts when it comes to leaving. This week I also started hanging out laundry. I do 20-30 loads of laundry a month even if I can save $10 a month on our energy bill I figured that would be great! Do you have any money saving tips for me??

I commend you for going caffeine free. I do not think I could do that. Every dollar adds up so even if it is only $10 that is a great savings.
I went for weeks without soda/caffeine. Then one day I out of habit ordered one in a drive thru and am right back to my horrible addiction of caffeine. Keep up the good work, I have to get back there again.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
