Daily Living Made Easier

Follow SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation on TwitterHot diggety dog. There are some great sites for you to check out on Twitter and I’ve got some of them right here:

Check out Penny Raine’s site for her new eBooks including some yummy recipes that are free. One has LOTS of chocolate. She is limiting the amount of free downloads so it would be best to check it out as soon as possible

Oh my, Amazon has five MP3 albums on sale for $5. There were two in particular that I really liked. I love the praise and worship style of the David Crowder Band and their album, Remedy, is on sale. If you prefer classical, you can find Mendelssohn pieces by Anne-Sophie Mutter. It’s important to note that an MP3 album means that you download all the music. You won’t get a CD or other type of physical music media. You should be able to play it on your computer, copy it onto your MP3 player, or burn it to your own cd using something like iTunes or Windows Media Player. (This was written a while back. The choices may have changed but there are still great options for $5 and even less! 🙂 ) 

Frugal Business Twip – A lot of Baby Boomers and others in the Sandwich Generation are self-employed. Most of us probably work from home but if you are starting to outgrow the house or various family members (elderly parents, adult children, grandchildren, etc.) have moved in and there’s no longer room for a home office, have you considered sharing/renting space from another company’s offices? This is quite popular with lawyers and I’m sure it would easily work with other businesses as well.

Here’s a fun Friday story from Seniors for Living now known as Our Parents . And guess who was interviewed? Yup, twas me! 🙂 

Good news – Wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord.

Farmers made a fascinating discovery of a monastery beneath Israeli soil – per CNN , via @NerdNews, two of my favorite sources of news.

“I read the Bible everyday and the newspaper everyday. That way I know what both sides are up to!” Zig Ziglar

“DNA proves “DNA analysis of bone fragments has proven that two of Czar Nicholas’ children believed to have escaped were killed with their royal family during the Russian Revolution…One of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century.” Per CNN , via @NerdNews. Does this mean the grandkids won’t want to watch Disney’s Anastasia anymore? 🙂

The Grocery Game is a great way to save time AND money at the grocery store.

Great news – In You, O Lord, do I take refuge…For You are my rock and my fortress; and for Your name’s sake You lead me and guide me.

If you use iTunes and find the print is too small, there is an easy solution! Read Rick Broida’s article at PC World and you will find several things you can do to make using iTunes even better including increasing the size of the print. I don’t know about y’all, but it seems like the print on everything is getting smaller and smaller, just as my eyesight is getting worser and worser. It’s nice to be given an option.

Debt-Proof Living has been one of my favorite frugal sites for years. Her current article has some frugal tips including a creative way to make good use of your grandchildren’s works of art. It’s titled “Creative Preservation.”

Here are some food tips from my favorite foodie site, @Foodimentary. I wish I’d learned this YEARS ago! Cleaning a grater after shredding cheese can be made easy by grating a potato afterward. It clears the gummy cheese out. Also, if you drop an egg on the floor, cover it with salt and leave it for a couple of minutes. Cleaning will be much easier!

Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.

Well, that’s it for this week. Did you find an idea you  really liked? We’d love it if you’d let us know by leaving a comment.
