Customizable Tote Bag for $1

If you read Sisters with Stuff blog very often you'll notice whenever I post a great deal I always mention "great for gifts" that's because I struggle with gifts, gifts are my nemesis. I love giving to people but I have such a hard time finding something that I think they will like, I overthink every gift and it completely stresses me out so if I find something inexpensive and it's meaningful like something with a picture on it then I am all over it.
So that's why I love this tote bag, perfect for Grandparents if you put the Grandkids picture on it or pictures of your furbabies or if you just want to treat yourself put a picture of something you love on it!!!
Tote Bag from is just $1 plus shipping.

We finally made the plunge but I promise not to turn into a Zombie from the Walking Dead!

We finally made the plunge and got smartphones with texting and a data package, we've been talking about it for the last 2 years but we just didn't want to fork out the ridiculus amount of money they want for cell phone packages now, it used to be your first born as down payment but they no longer require the down payment so we just pay monthly. Up until now all we have had were the free phones, no texting, no internet, we were probably some of the last people on the planet not to have texting, our friends would look at us like we were leprys "you don't have texting?" "how am I suppose to talk to you?" UHHHH You could call us!!!!!!!

When we got the phones I promised myself that I would not become one of the "Smartphone Zombies", you've seen them, they walk around constantly with the phone in one hand and their head down staring at the screen, scrolling, texting, splitting atoms whatever, I don't know what they are doing but apparently it's pretty important because they can't look up long enough to avoid walking into moving traffic, I stay away from them to avoid being bitten and infected. Then there is the "The person texting me is more important than the person in front of me, call waiting phenomenon" (I really should use the acronym instead of typing the whole thing out) that's where you are talking to someone and suddenly they are no longer in the conversation, they are head down staring at their screen. At first I thought well it must be really important if they are stopping their conversation with me midsentence to answer the text they just recieved, they are probably getting their orders from Mission Impossible headquarters about their next mission, but then I found out it was just a text from their friend saying "WASSSSSUP?"

Long story short,  (too late) if you know me and you spot me doing any of the above, please slap me and put my phone in time out for a while, or just text me, wherever I am or whatever i'm doing I'll be sure to answer you!
Found this and thought it was so fitting!

I'm going to start buying Baking Soda in bulk!

Between baking soda and vinegar I'm convinced I never need to buy another cleanser again, I'm going to need to buy bulk bags of baking soda, those little teeny boxes aren't going to cut it.
I found a few more uses for baking soda that I had to share:

To clean and freshen plastic retainers..yes the retainers you wear in your mouth to keep your teeth straight, soak in a cup for 30 minutes in a mixture of 2 teaspoons baking soda and water. I actually still have my retainer and I wear it sometimes at night, i'm sure it could use some serious cleaning and freshening since it's over 25 yrs old.

Same goes for denture wearers, soak them in the same mixture of 2 teaspoons baking soda and water for 30 minutes.

For a natural way to get fresh breath and neutralize onion and garlic odors, rinse your mouth just like mouthwash with a mixture of 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in a cup of water, be sure not to swallow.
Who's doing this already??

Make sure you aren't getting tricked into paying for your Credit Report!

If you are trying to get your credit report, don't get tricked by the catchy song on tv about free credit report, if you read the fine print you will be enrolled in a 7 day trial and if you don't cancel within 7 days you will start being billed $16.95 per month, they probably made you use your credit card number when you signed up for your "Free" credit report so they will just start billing your credit card.
The only FREE credit report is Once a year you can access your credit report from the 3 credit reporting companies, Transunion, Equifax and Experian. You do have to create a username and password and you will have to enter some personal information and they will ask you specific questions to verify that you are who you say you are. It's a good idea to check yours yearly in case there are mistakes, it's easier to fix them if you catch them right away. I've used this before and found several small mistakes and was able to fix them without too much trouble.
Keep in mind this is different than your credit score, this will not give you your credit score. You can purchase your credit score through one of the reporting agencies Transunion, Equifax or Experian.

Homemade Neti pot solution!

It's super easy to make your own Neti pot solution, you don't have to buy those packets anymore!
I am not a doctor so of course consult your health care provider if you have questions about the safety of this, I did find this link to the Mayo Clinic where someone asked if it was ok to use homemade solution, you can check it out.
So here's the recipe: dissolve 1/4 teaspoon of salt into 8 oz of bottle or distilled water (you can also boil it and then let it cool) you can add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda if you like, try it with the baking soda and without and see if you can tell a difference.

Anybody else in the same boat?

I use Facebook to connect with friends and family members, I'm reconnecting with lots of old high school classmates that I haven't seen since graduation. But can I tell you how strange it is to see pictures that my old high school friends post of their kids that are graduating from HIGH SCHOOL and COLLEGE or getting MARRIED................and here I am with a 4 YEAR OLD watching sprout and singing the wheels on the bus...seriously!! I'll just say I'm in my early 40's, enough said, but I don't feel like an older Mom, where I live now I have lots of Mom friends, some the same age as me, some younger, but we all have kids around the same age so it's never an issue, (we are all in misery together).
I don't regret my decision to be a Mom later in life, I've been able to do so many fun things because I waited but I am certainly not judging anyone for starting a family earlier in life. Everybody has to do what works best for them, but it is really strange to think that I could have a child that is graduating high school or college. Next summer is my 25th high school reunion, I want to go, I haven't been to one yet (I know shame on me) but I'm just wondering if everyone will be discussing what college their child got into or what major they are studying and I'll be like "oh yeah well my kid can read Go Dog Go and wipe herself".

Another case of Vinegar to the rescue......Stinky Laundry

I admit sometimes I forget that there is a load of laundry in the washer that needs to be put in the dryer or I start one in the morning and then we're gone all day and I come back and it smells musty and stinky. If you have a front load washer you know if you don't take the laundry out right away it starts to get smelly really fast, you can read how I try to keep my front load washer clean & fresh without chemicals.
Here's what I do if I've left a load of wet laundry in the washer for too long, I just pour a small amount of vinegar in the soap receptacle then I change the settings to the shortest amount of time and I change the temp to cold, no need to run a full wash with laundry soap again. The clothes come out smelling fresh and no musty smell, you can actually use vinegar in every wash to keep your clothes smelling fresh, just put vinegar in the fabric softener receptacle, I promise the clothes don't come out smelling like vinegar they just smell fresh and clean.

Banana hangers have a purpose!

Did you know there is a reason why bananas should be kept elevated in some kind of banana hanger? I always thought it was a decorative thing, not so...... here's what I found out. Bananas give off gasses that make them ripen and turn brown, they need good air circulation around and under them, if they are just sitting on a counter the gasses accumulate underneath and cause them to ripen faster. If they are kept elevated, air can circulate underneath and dissipate some of the gasses. Obviously there is nothing that will stop the ripening process completely but you may be able to hold it off for a little while longer. What are your tricks to keep bananas from ripening too fast?

Did you know you can Freeze Ripe Bananas if you want to make banana bread or something else with them but don't have time to do it right away!
