This is a must read! Educate your children on "tricky people" not strangers....Tell them to find a mom with kids if they are ever lost...SO SMART! (I first heard this on Safety Kids.) Common sense stuff that isn't so common any more. Take a minute to read and think about how you will have these conversations with your children.

MUST grow some. Mosquito grass (a.k.a. Lemon Grass) repels mosquitoes | the strong citrus odor drives mosquitoes away--very functional patio plant.

I did not know this! Outdoor use. flies HATE pine-sol. Mix it with water, about 50/50 and put it in a spray bottle. Use to wipe counters or spray on the porch and patio table and furniture Drive them away!

DIY Fire Starters for Camping - You begin with an empty egg carton, add old dryer lint, and cover in wax. You just let the wax dry, break them into 12 individual cups, and light the cardboard corner to start your fire.

Golf tee fix for stripped holes - put in glue, hammer in golf tee, cut off excess, then add screw = fixed. Tried this, really works!

When a natural disaster or other emergency strikes, be prepared to have plenty of fresh drinking water on hand with the cool new waterBOB- Emergency Drinking Water Storage. Rather than temporarily filling up an open bathtub with water that could easily get contaminated or leak down the drain, just lay this innovative heavy duty food grade FDA approved plastic bladder out in any standard bathtub, attach the fill sock to the faucet and fill to capacity. In about 20 minutes you'll have 100 gallons.

When you paint a room, put some extra paint in a baby jar* and keep it handy for quick touch-ups. pinner said *I did this Aug. 2011 - don't use a baby food jar - use a peanut butter jar that has a PLASTIC lid or it will rust - that was a tip from my painter - it's all stored in a cabinet in the house - just take it out and shake well and use a q-tip for quick touch ups. This has got to be one of the best things I've ever pinned!!!!
