Save Money and Learn a New Skill by Repairing Things on Your Own [Guest Post]

Individuals who have an interest in learning a new skill and have the time it takes in order to learn a new skill can save a lot of money by repairing things on their own. Fortunately, there are many videos available on the Internet and how-to articles that can teach individuals how to do almost anything. Of course, some things are learned by trial and error. You can look for a video on how to build a computer and get some very in-depth information. However, once you give it a try, you may see that it is a lot harder than it looks. What you want to do is be patient and take the time to learn how something works and what it needs to be fixed.

Many individuals have appliances in their kitchen. They may have a microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, and other things that have been designed in order to make their life easier. When one of these appliances break, do not simply throw it out and then go to a local department store and purchase another one. You can take the time to learn how to fix this appliance. It will likely save you money, and you will feel proud that you learned how to do something new.

Once you realize that an appliance is broken and needs to be fixed, you can look online for different how-to articles and videos. You will first get familiar with how the thing actually works. From there, you can watch some videos to see how individuals have figured out what is actually wrong with the appliance and then you can see what steps need to be taken in order to fix it. If it is not too complicated or dangerous, you can then begin to get the tools that are necessary and start the project.

In order to fix household appliances, you usually only need a couple of tools. These can be found at a local hardware store for a very reasonable price. Depending on what is broken, you may need to purchase parts in order to fix the appliance. For example, if you are fixing a microwave, you may need to purchase new directional couplers.

After you have fixed the appliance successfully, it is likely that you will start having friends and family members ask you to fix their broken appliances. Who knows, you may have just started your own small business.

  2. It is a good thing to do, so many small appliances only need a small repair, but get tossed out because to take it somewhere you can buy a new one cheaper, but that isn't environmentally friendly.

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

The Best Gluten-Free Soup I've Had in a Long Time (And Giveaway]

​​​​​​​​ Since I've been gluten-free it isn't always to figure out easy lunch solutions. I'm not a huge fan of frozen options and I really don't think I've found the perfect, consistently amazing lunch time bread. And soups? Well, I haven't found my favorite soups yet either. Until now.
So I had the chance to try out Blount's Soups! I tried two different kinds - 
Tomato Bisque

Broccoli Cheddar



Here's what I thought:
The Good:
Theses soups are non-gmo, organic, and gluten-free. First, the tomato bisque. I found this tasted so good. I like when Tomato Soup is on the creamy side. And this was! I'm never a fan when tomato soup has more of a ketchupy, liquidy tomato flavor. But when it really tastes like a soup? Oh yum! 
For the Broccoli Cheddar, it may not have been as thick and creamy and cheesy as I usually love about Broccoli Cheddar, it was still really tasty. I just needed a bit more salt. 
The Not so Good
You know, not like I'm trying to avoid a…

Why You Should Buy Organic Coffee [and Giveaway]

I'm always on the organic route when I go into a grocery store, but I have only just recently heard that we really should be drinking organic coffee. I never really thought of this before and didn't realize the importance of choosing organic coffee until now.

One major reasons to drink organic coffee?

You avoid a good majority of the pesticides.

This is the main reason I choose organic produce. Did you know that coffee is known to be one of the most heavily sprayed crops? While many argue the roasting process eliminates the pesticide residue, this still doesn't leave warm feelings in my coffee pot about what the coffee bean could entail. (SOURCE)

It's also environmentally beneficial. Many conventional growers will clear out forests to make room for their crops. This eliminates natural pest killers like birds and other creatures and this leads to more pesticide use. Organic coffee is grown more naturally, maintaining the forest life in the surrounding area.
