I am not a 'shopper'.  I do not like it, I do not do it unless absolutely necessary, and today is one of those days.  Groceries (ugh), pharmacy, Walmart(ugh), and just listing them makes me tired.

I hope your day is a quiet, peaceful one, unless you love to shop!  Go for it!

Hints for today:
1. Spray wd40 on a cloth and wipe over leather shoes or leather boots , then buff with a soft clean cloth to shine and make them waterproof.                                                                         
2. To make nail polish stay on nails longer first coat fingernails with white vinegar using a cotton ball. Let dry then apply nail polish. To quickly dry nail polish dip fingers into a bowl of cold water. Then shake excess water from hands and allow hands to air dry.

3. Shaving your legs with hair conditioner instead of soap makes them soft and smooth. Just apply, shave, and rinse.

  1. I need to run to the Grocery store too, double yuck:( Hey, I tried the wooden spoon tip to keep the water from boiling over and it worked! Thanks for the tips! HUGS!

  2. I am sooooo with you on shopping!
    I despise it!!!!
    Thankfully now I have a teen old enough to drive who helps out!
    Hope you are home and settled soon! : )

  3. I detest shopping. Just reading your list made me feel tired. When I make one I feel poor (thanks to the inflation that 'they' say doesn't exist but I know is a lie because I actually buy groceries). Ok, I'm in one of those moods. *grin* Probably because I also just went shopping and am still reeling from the expenses.
    Wish I'd known the tip about the finger nail polish back when I was a working girl. That would have helped prolong the polish. I don't bother anymore. I would be too much like putting lipstick on a hog. Talk about UGH! *lol*
    Hope your day is blessed too my friend. ~:)

  4. I'm so with you! I hate to shop. I do enjoy is when we go home on furlough for a week or so then I go back to hating it.
    Thanks for the tips, I'm gonna try the fingernail one.
    Happy first day of Fall!

  5. I LOVE to shop! Just got back from some outlet shopping and grocery too. It's all good :) if I lived closer I would gladly go for you, no kidding!
    Hope your day is good to you. God Bless!

  6. A trip to the grocery store is one of those necessary evils. Much like stopping to get gas.

  7. Some great hints there Linda. Enjoy your day regardless of the shopping bit :)


  8. I also dread shopping, but it's a necessary evil. Cute cat picture and great hints, Linda!
