Helpful Hints…or in other words, I’m Bored

I don’t have anywhere to be for about an hour so I thought I’d share some words I like to call wisdom.

1. There’s a common phrase about having a “buttload” of something. Did you know it’s actually supposed to be a “boatload?” Think about what you’re saying with the first one and you realize how stupid you sound. Trey brought this to my attention.

2. If you want your house to smell better, put some potpourri in your vacuum bags. It smells amazing and you might enjoy vacuuming even more. Or you can be like Ashley and pour it directly into your vents.

3. Speaking of vacuums, if you have 2 levels in your house buy 2 vacuums. I find that I don’t vacuum the upstairs as much because I hate carrying the vacuum up there so I recently purchased a second one. Now I’m just waiting for it to come in the mail so I can vacuum upstairs. Lazy American? No, smart American.

4. Don’t quit eating a delicious food you love for the sake of a diet. It will only make you miserable. That’s why I’m never quitting Diet Pepsi again…it makes me happy. Just work out a little harder if you need to.

5. Shop more on eBay. I save so much money on dumb things like razor blades or even perfume when I get it on eBay instead of paying full price at the store. And plus, it’s fun to get packages once in a while.

6. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t get gas til the light comes on in my car. I recently found out that you should not go below 1/4 tank because there is actually a lot of crap at the bottom of the tank that will clog your fuel filter and pump. After spending more than $2000 this summer to fix both of our vans fuel pumps and filters I have learned my lesson.

I can’t think of anything else off the top of my head but if you have any ideas that would improve my life and well-being please share them with me.

Hey, uh, just a heads up - Diet Pepsi doesn't have any calories in it.

Ok you might be making fun of me for the whole vent thing but try it, it works!! :) And you'll wake up in the morning to a delightful aroma surrounding your nostrils. You're welcome.

Those are great! I love the vacuum one. My downstairs is always neglegted because of my laziness.
