Cereal, Soda, White clothes

Mix ‘n’ Match Cereal

My son loves all the colored sugar cereals, but they are pretty expensive. I like to give him that pleasure. So I buy one box of this expensive cereal and a bag of a very cheap (no sugar added), healthy cereal. In his bowl, I mix two parts cheap to one part expensive. The colors still look great, and the sugary taste is still there. Little Tristan (my son) can’t tell the difference, but mom surely can in dollars and cents!


Flat Soda?

If your two- or three-liter bottle of soda goes flat before you can drink it all, don’t despair. Just fill your glass 2/3 or 3/4 full of the flat soda and then top it off with a newly-opened bottle of the same kind or even a different kind of soda for a different taste. The fizzy soda will put the fizz back in the flat one.


Brighter Whites!

I have the brightest whites because of a little tip my husband suggested. I add two tablespoons of salt to my washing machine, along with the normal amount of detergent. I don’t know why it works, but for me, it does! Give it a try for your whites. There’s no need for fancy, overpriced products to whiten.
