    If you have a lot of pictures and mementos just stashed away in a box on your shelf, then it is time to take them out. These pictures usually reflect your hobbies, your youth, vacations, or photos of loved ones. Pictures say a thousand words but what is the use of them if they sit in a box under your bed. It’s time to get them out and create a scrapbook!

    Here are some quick and simple steps to making the perfect scrapbook for the person on the go, who is not looking to spend a lot of money! After conquering these steps, you will be able to preserve all of your favorite memories!
    Scrapbooks can be addictive. Once you make one, you will want to make more. The more you make, the more items you will want to put on the pages for decoration and detail. Have fun, enjoy and show your “books” to anyone who wants to see them.
    Its fun to capture your friends in the moment, and the places that you go. On a special event, keep a note on where you went, anything specific that you did when you were there and, of course, funny moments. If possible, try and write down funny comments that were made or embarrassing and entertaining stories that happened. It’ll help when you actually get down and start making the scrapbook. You could also cut things out of magazines like that cool sofa or just celebrities that you like… GO WILD!

    Disclaimer – As with all home remedies on this page, use at your own risk.

    1) Flies or bees bothering you? Spray them with hairspray and they will take a quick dive.

    2) Sealed envelope – Put in the freezer for a few hours, then slide a knife under the flap. The envelope can then be resealed. (hmmmmmm…)

    3) Use Empty toilet paper roll to store appliance cords. It keeps them neat and you can write on the roll what appliance it belongs to.

    4) For icy door steps in freezing temperatures: get warm water and put Dawn dishwashing liquid in it. Pour it all over the steps. They won’t refreeze. (wish I had known this for the last 60 years!)

    5) Crayon marks on walls? This worked wonderfully! A damp rag, dipped in baking soda. Comes out with little effort (elbow grease that is!).

    6) Permanent marker on appliances/counter tops (like store receipt BLUE!) rubbing alcohol on paper towel.
