And remember…

Now, let’s take a look at our weekly household and blogging tips.

Weekly Household Tip

I love to tear apart fresh lettuce for my salads. However, what I don’t love is that lettuce, left in the vegetable drawer, can go bad before I get to it.

My solution? Separate the lettuce leaves, clean and dry them, and then put them in a gallon size zip lock bag. Now add a piece of paper towel in the bag and, the best tip… Put a straw in the bag, close the bag with the straw sticking out, and then suck the air out of the bag. Instant vacuum seal without the appliance! (I also put just one little puff of air back into the bag before removing the straw and sealing the bag.) My lettuce lasts ‘forever’. 😉

Weekly Blogging Tip

If your Pinterest traffic seems to have slowed down as of late, don’t be discouraged. Pinterest often has algorithm updates that are hard to keep up with.

Try switching things up. Create some new ‘fresh’ pins for your content. Use a different photo, add a new title overlay, and/or use some updated keywords on the overlay. And remember, pin 80% of your content, and 20% of others (we all want to spread the love)!

Now, let’s get to the features!
