Before packing away the clothes, wash or dry-clean them, making sure there are no stains. You can roll them to prevent creases.
Sweaters need to be kept away from moisture, so don’t store the container in an attic or a basement, if possible. Find a closet, storage space underneath a bed or some other area in your home with the same temperature, etc., as your bedroom.
Just be careful – depending on how much you put in each envelope, the postage may go up.
Susan, there is an easy hint for cleaning these appliances: After you are done using the blender or processor, rinse the pitcher or bowl with water. Fill half of the pitcher or bowl with warm water and add a drop of dishwashing liquid. Put the lid on securely and turn the appliance back on for 20-30 seconds. Also, it takes only a drop of detergent – don’t overdo it, thinking more is better. Rinse, dry and that’s it. The appliance will be ready for the next time you want to whip up a meal.
2 cups biscuit mix, 1 egg, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, 11/3 cups club soda. In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients using a large spoon. Be sure not to overmix, and use the batter immediately so it does not have a chance to go flat.
Get out your waffle iron and start making delicious, fluffy waffles for everyone to enjoy, or freeze for later!

It seems that now scammers are pretending to be from the registry, calling homes and asking people to verify their personal information, or asking if they want to sign up for the registry. No one from the registry will call you! These folks are asking “to confirm” names, addresses and even Social Security numbers. Trust me, no one should be calling you to ask for this information. My hint: Hang up!
Once you have signed up with the registry, it permanently restricts calls from telemarketers, so you never need to renew your registration – it never expires. Call 888-382-1222 to sign up today!
P.S.: Another good hint is to never give your personal information over the phone, especially if you get a call you were not expecting asking for it.
I was frustrated and ready to throw the foliage in the garbage when I decided, in a last attempt, to put all the pieces in the dishwasher.
I secured the pieces with clips to the racks and lost a few leaves in the process, but the greenery was cleaned and able to be displayed again.
