My Favorite Winter Hand Lotions

My Favorite Winter Hand Lotions During the winter,  my hands get very dry. It's caused by a combination of a few things, beyond my control, so finding lotions to use to prevent cracking, etc. has been my mission this year. Pictured above, are the four that I've narrowed down as My Favorite Winter Hand Lotions, on my couch. Why four? Each of them works well, in their own ways, on different issues I'm having. I've tried a multitude of lotions from the drugstore, some which work well during other times of the year. The guys are having their OWN skin…

How to Organize Important Paperwork

How to Organize Important Paperwork I've always had a goal of really getting my important paperwork organized, and over the past year, I've really gotten serious about it. I'm sad to say I'm still not done, but I do make progress each day! When my kids were much younger, I knew that I needed to KEEP the important papers, but they all ended up in a few big moving boxes when we made our cross-country move. I've made it a priority to spend 15-30 minutes each day going through all incoming paperwork to make sure it's properly handled, then grabbing…

DIY Homemade Oatmeal, Milk, & Honey Soap

DIY Homemade Oatmeal, Milk, & Honey Soap The New England winters are harsh on my skin. I recently went to a local craft fair and purchased some handmade soaps from one of the vendors, and we spent some time talking about my skin needs, etc. After trying some of her soaps (they were fabulous!), I did see improvement. The only problem was that she only creates her soaps in the summer, and then sells them in the fall and winter, so she was out of stock. I considered buying some online from Etsy vendors, but she kept encouraging me to…

Shows to Netflix Binge

Shows to Netflix Binge One of the most common questions I see from friends and family on Facebook is, "What show should I watch on Netflix next?" There are SO MANY good choices, my wish list is always bursting. Of course, the choice you make will depend on what genre shows you enjoy watching, but the list I usually share is long, and sometimes I forget a few when I'm offering a suggestion. I thought I'd take the opportunity to share my suggestions with all of you, and then I can refer people to this list, and I won't forget…
