Are Cutco Knives Worth It?

At Home
Are Cutco Knives Worth The Money? If you're looking these up you are either curious on what Cutco is because you saw them being demo'd at a home show, or someone mentioned these knives to you.Then, you wondered, "What on Earth makes these knives so expensive?", and most likely followed that question up with, "Are they really worth the money?".I'm going to give you the most annoying answer there is: It depends.Do I own these? No. I saw them at the home show and our Brother and Sister-in-Law bought them there.Their Experience:They use them every day since they cook at home every day. After the initial sticker shock I have never heard either of them complain about the price. Our Brother-in-Law cut himself with one of the knives last week and verified that even...

How to Download MP3s for Free

Things I Taught My Mom
My Mom recently needed some music on her computer so that she could have it accessible when she wasn't online. She called me asking if I could help her set up Audacity so she could grab audio from online after reading a tutorial that told her to do this. Now while Audacity IS a great program, that would have been total overkill for what she was looking to do, which was just to get an MP3 song that she liked downloaded to her computer for free.This tutorial will teach you how to very quickly and easily download any song that is available on YouTube, with no registration or cost. You do not need Audacity or any other program to do this.InstructionsStep 1• Go to the site named MP3Juices.ccStep 2• Enter the song or artist that you wish to ...

What to do if you have a Nail in your Tire

What to do if you have a Nail in your Tire

Remedies
I recently found a nail (actually a screw) in the tread of my rear tire, situated pretty deep.I had no idea on what to do but luckily my father-in-law did.He said what I needed was called a "patch-plug" from a tire specialist, which is where they place a plug inside the tire and join it with a patch from the outside. He thought it would typically run around $20.00 or so.After testing it first to see if it would be safe enough to drive to the tire repair shop, I took it into Big O Tires.I was shocked in a good way to find out this service is free. When I asked them why they said "because they love their customers".Cool!I like being loved and free is always the best price.Talking to friends of mine, they mentioned that this service is free at numerous other t...

Home Remedies for Clear Skin Overnight

Home Remedies for Clear Skin Overnight

Remedies
The skin is the largest organ in the body and the first thing people come into contact with when they see you. Everyone wants glowing, bright skin unmarred by red splotches and bumps.I've struggled on and off with mild acne for my entire adult life. Pimples seem to know exactly when to show up, like when you have some important event and you wanted to look your fantastic best without a volcano-crater erupting on your face. If you're lucky, you might be able to get rid of it overnight (I'd suggest doing the Aspirin spot treatment followed up by a dab of the clay mask - or drying lotion if you have it).The good news is that there are wonderful free remedies that you probably already have ingredients for in your kitchen. There are also some excellent inexpensive products that can ...
Website Hosting Explained

Website Hosting Explained

Website Building
There are a lot of terms to learn when you are first starting out building your website. Which option of hosting services to choose can be a bit of a daunting task. Here are the different hosting options in laymen's terms to give you a better understanding of what each type of hosting means.The Main 5 Hosting OptionsFree Free websites are offered by companies such as Wix or Blogspot (Blogger) and will give you a “subdomain” under their domain, but it’s not really your own site (you can’t choose a unique domain name, etc.) These are for people who want to just create something for themselves (like a travel journal) and don’t actually intend to use this for a business. You will pay nothing and the slow loading speeds and ads that you have to endure speak to this. This might be com

Baked Chicken Ziti

Recipes
This recipe came out really, really good. It's also on the light side; everything we make we try to do with less whatever, less cheese, less cream, less fat. I don't need pounds of butter in my diet, I am unhealthy enough from my heart medicine (ahem, nightly glass of wine).I've made some life changes this year, and that includes trying to become a better cook. I have to say, I've surprised myself on occasion - this being one of those. Here's the deal, I am a rule breaker and I hate following a recipe. The original idea does come from Gimme Some Oven, I've been following her for years and she's got some KILLER recipes. But of course I did it up different, because that's who I am and I've learned to embrace the me that always has to be different.I am not going to give a calorie ...
How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

At Home
Survivalism has been around for a long time but with all the natural disasters we are experiencing in recent times, it becomes irresponsible not to be at least minimally prepared.While probably unrealistic, weird thoughts do cross my mind like, “How truly prepared am I for the Zombie Apocalypse?”. Let's be honest, I'm probably not even prepared for a really long power outage lasting more than a few hours.I have friends who are hopeful and eagerly awaiting the day they’ll get to use their zombie-killer maces and crossbows, but I confess, my arsenal is lacking.Although the reality of a zombie-plague is a bit of a fantasy, everyone should be prepared for an emergency where we might be without some of the luxuries that we have today.When was the last time you had someone wo

Moving Tips that Save Friendships

I think most of us would agree that moving is very stressful event, from both a mental and physical standpoint.Apart from being an exhausting undertaking in every way, it can be quite costly and time-consuming. It's also emotionally draining - you have to accept leaving your residential memories behind and watch all of your personal items get shoved in a box and potentially lost. At a minimum, a majority of your accumulated life's possessions will be inaccessible for a while.Moving is also stressful for those who are helping you, there are people I no longer speak to because of their inconsiderate moving etiquette.There is never such a thing as a "fun" move, but there are various degrees of success or failure - I think I've seen some of the worst moves in the history of bad...
