BubbleWrap insulation: Use bubble wrap on windows for two three+ years now, and I'm amazed how quick and easy it is. This year, we are even covering the windows in the guest room -- we just take the bubble wrap down when guests come, and put it back up when they leave -- 15 seconds a window.
Why didn't I think of that?!?! Easy wainscotting idea: buy frames from Michael's, glue to wall and paint over entire lower half. Got this tip from a savvy home improvement person. Ha! That's stupid easy.
TICK BE GONE A nurse discovered a safe/easy way to remove ticks, making it less traumatic for the patient and easier for you. Apply a small amount of liquid soap on a cotton ball Cover the tick with the soap soaked cotton ball Blot it for a few seconds ( 15-20 ) The tick will spontaneously detach and stick to the cotton as you remove it. Notify everyone! This may help so many, especially with those hard to reach areas. Keep liquid soap & cotton balls in your summer first aid kit.
