Help a Child Smile This Semester With CampusBookRentals.com

       I took this semester off from college but I wanted to bring to my readers not only a great opportunity to save money on  their college text books but an opportunity to help give the child a gift of a smile. With next semester approaching quickly most likely you have already selected your classes, and we all know what is next......yes, it will be time to get those books. This semester consider trying something new.....renting your books! CampusBookRentals.com has so many perks to offer:
  • save 40-90% off of bookstore prices
  • free shipping both ways
  • can highlight in the textbooks
  • flexible renting periods
  • we donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented
       And that isn't all, you can find more on their website CampusBookRentals.com, what I want to do is take a second to focus on something they do that really brings me joy. Every time a book is rented they donate to a great cause called Operation Smile. If you have been around the blog a while you have heard me talk before about them. Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives.  At Operation Smile, they are more than a charity, more than an NGO. They are a mobilized force of medical professionals and caring hearts who provide safe, effective reconstructive surgery and related medical care for children born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate. Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 of those children will die before their first birthday. The children who survive are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a productive life. Every child deserves access to safe, quality surgical care, a future filled with hope, and Operation Smile helps give them that.
       To often we are stuck asking what we can do to help, so CampusBookRentals.com has made it easy. All you have to do is rent your text books and they will take care of the rest, while saving you money. With this semester drawing to an end now is the time to think about what you will do with your old texts as well. Consider their new initiative, RentBack, that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students, which is awesome because you can 2-4x more money compared to what you would make through buyback options!

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

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
