  1. I like reading all of your helpful suggestions and viewing your decoration, etc in your apartment. i am curious as to where you bought the tray on the back of your toilet. I could use several in my tiny house.

  2. Great remedies, Brenda. Aren’t baking soda and vinegar wonderful? I use them for cleaning all the time. So much better than commercial products with all the additives that can cause who know what maladies.

  3. Brenda,

    Good evening! Thank you for sharing your great tips! I cannot wait to try them out.

    I hope that Ivy is staying away from your beautiful tree and that Charlie doing well.

    Have a great night!

  4. Brenda, these are pretty cool! Thank you so much for sharing them! One thing I do for the garbage disposal is to grind orange peels through it. They make the kitchen smell wonderful! I do the baking soda for the fridge…it keeps it all neutral-smelling in there. I also have a sprayer filled with a mint/orange scent that works well in my bedroom closet and bathroom. Love and hugs!

  5. Good ideas, I plan to use a couple of them. I wish I had a place in my bathroom to put a couple of plants. I love how you have done yours. I have so little light that the plants would up and die immediately.

  6. Great ideas but my kitchen disposal isn’t working at the moment and I think it might be the electrical as the switch doesn’t turn on. One more item to tack on for getting repaired in 2019. How is Charlie?

    1. Charlie’s okay. Took him down to the office in a blanket for awhile just to get out. I have a garbage disposal, but have never used it.

      1. Good, I was worried about the little guy. I’m finding I don’t miss the disposal since I cook so much now with a crock pot. Thank you for the update.

  7. Hi Brenda,
    Daily reader but I don’t typically comment. Love reading your blog – especially the antics of your fur babies! I just thought it best to let you know that many essential oils are considered quite harmful to pets, in particular cats. Might be worth looking into if you’re planning to use them in your home. Just a suggestion!

    Since most simple drain clogs/slowness are a result of hair and soap build up,here’s a hint.
    Take a night when you’ll be sleeping in the following morning,after you finish bathing,dishes etc. Pour a couple of cups of plain white vinegar down each drain,don’t run any water,go to sleep letting the vinegar do it’s work,the drains should be much improved by the morning.
    Do this monthly.
