I have also found that marinating is a great way to improve inexpensive meats, especially for things like fajitas.

The last few years, in addition to my regular full-time job, I had a part-time online job where I was paid as an independent contractor (1099). So, no tax taken out. I didn't pay in estimated payments and instead just paid every year when we did our taxes. I didn't earn a huge amount at that job, but it can still be sticker shock when you realize what you owe.
I'd encourage anyone who is self-employed to either take advantage of this, or set aside savings to cover the taxes. less

Does anyone else get excited about these coupons they always send out and think about all the amazing stuff you could buy for your kitchen, your bath and to decorate with?
Now, that I am so excited, I am going to delete this mail. Thank you Bed, Bath and Beyond for the opportunity to fantasy shop and live a fantasy life where everything in my house is new, matches and looks fantastic.
Now that I am done with all that crazy shopping, I need to get busy. If you need me, I am spending my day hunting through discount stores for containers to make my homemade bath and beauty products. I am also looking for good bargains on summer clothes.
My bed and bath will look great with those eclectic containers filled with oils, sugars and powders. It will smell nice too.

Note: I have doubled the recipe and put in a 9x13" pan. The last time I did this, however, it was really tough to get the caramels out of the pan.
It works best to line with parchment paper. Do NOT try it with foil ( even buttering the foil first), because the aluminum just gets embedded in the caramel.
Ingredients: 1 c butter1 lb brown sugar (2 cups)dash salt1 c light corn syrup14 oz can sweetened condensed milk1 tsp vanilla
Directions: Melt butter in 3 quart or larger saucepan.Add sugar and salt.Stir in corn syrup, mix well.Gradually add milk, stirring constantly.Cook and stir over medium heat to firm ball stage (245°).Remove from heat, stir in vanilla.Pour into 9x9 buttered pan. Cool, cut into pieces and wrap in wax paper.Ok to freeze. less

I held three yard sales with my mom's belongings after she passed. I had never been to an estate sale, so I didn't know what to expect. However, due to issues that popped up, I think these tips should be mentioned to anyone thinking of doing such a sale.

It used to be that finding work to do at home, especially on the internet, was a dangerous thing to do. So many scams and pennies per hour "jobs" were prevalent that the real jobs were like finding the proverbial needle in a haystack.
While there certainly are scams and underpaid work available, es...
