Tip Tuesday – No Mess Pomegranates

pom

We love pomegranates! Who doesn’t, but what a mess to seed. Lately the pre-seeded seem like the was to go, but the price triples. Well we have a little trick for you. Just cut your pom in half and let it soak in a bowl of water for about 10 mins. Make sure that the pom is fully submerged. The seeds will loosen and be easy to scoop out.

Add your pomegranate seeds to salads, smoothies or just as a snack.

Screen Shot 2014-02-26 at 1.29.59 PM

Are you sick of telemarketers calling your home phone or even your cell phone? We are! Even asking politely to be removed from their lists, they still keep calling. Did you know that the government has a free, safe way to stop these calls? It’s simple and only takes about a minute. Head to the National Do Not Call Registry and follow the steps. There are only 2.

1. Enter your phone number and email

2. Go to your email and confirm your registry

Done!

This service does take some time to kick in. In the mean time we found this other handy website that will give you instructions on how to block a phone number.  Check out this Wiki How for detailed instructions.

Enjoy dinner without the pesky calls

Thrifty Thursday: New Spring Wreath

photo (3)

Have an old door wreath hanging around the basement? For a simple and cheap tip, take that plain Christmas wreath and jazz it up with the upcoming season or holiday.  We added a bird nest, a few eggs and a cute, chevron burlap ribbon to brighten this wreath for a Spring Flare.  Since we want to be able to change out the decor for the upcoming holidays, we used fishing line to hold the nest in place and just tucked the ribbon into the branches of the wreath for easy removal
