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.

  1. I would love to be able to repair my own appliances. Last year was a terrible year with lots of things breaking in my home. It cost me a lot of money!

  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…

Lotus Foods Rice Review and Giveaway

​​

I tend to eat quite a bit of rice in my diet. First, because it's a healthy grain. Plus, I'm also gluten-free and it's a good grain for me to have that won't negatively impact my body.
So I usually purchase one particular type of rice brand, so I was really eager for the chance to try out a new kind. I tried out rice by Lotus Foods. You may have seen them in the store or heard of them before! 
What makes Lotus Foods different? Well they work towards improving the lives of the farmers they work with first of all. They use what is called a "System of Rice Intensification." It's a way of allowing farms to "double and triple their yields while using 80-90% less seed, 50% less water, less or no chemical inputs." Basically, more rice, less water. So I tend to be a visual learner, so if you want to know more about what this means, watch this really short video below:

They also partner with small scale farmers, which I think is amazing and I really …

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

I absolutely love peanut butter. Really, I mean peanut butter is such a huge part of my diet. And you know, I really appreciate when peanut butter has simple ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And that's it. I don't like added oils and I'm not TOO big of a fan of flavored peanut butters. Although I'd never turn down chocolate peanut butter (if I found the right blend!).
Anyways, I had the chance to try out some peanut butter by a company called, "Crazy Richards." Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter has been around a while. It was formed and combined by two Richards about 30 years ago and was recently passed along to the newest generation.
Well, I got the chance to try out their peanut butter - creamy and crunchy. I loved it. Here's a weird thing I love with peanut butter - whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt with blueberries! Sure people put peanut butter in smoothies, but I scoop out some of my favorite vanilla greek yogurt into a cup and put it in the freezer with …
