Survival Tips for One-Income Households


on February 23, 2011

I seriously would not know what I would be like these days, if YouTube wasn’t invented.  It is like an information highway…  Not only is it entertaining watching funny home videos, but EXTREMELY educational as well.  It will show you “how to” do just about everything.

ORGANIZING…  Numerous videos on how to organize just about EVERYTHING in your house.

REUSING… Want to know what to do with your over abundance of recyclables?  Some great examples that I found off YouTube…

1.  Reuse soda bottles/milk jugs/juice containers…
a.  Create a FREE Topsy-Turvy for your tomato plants using a 2 liter soda bottle and some string to hang…  Just paint the outside with some craft paint or glue some fabric on it to make it look nicer, and Voila!!!!
b.  Create soil pots for planting indoors!  I just started this one… I can’t wait to see how it all turns out!
c.  Make your own greenhouse… Mini style.

2.  Reuse magazine pages…
a.  Make storage bins-cover a shoe box with magazine cutouts and then roll up extra pages to glue all the way around the box.
b.  Make a vase- This one is way cool.

3.  Reuse toilet paper/paper towel rolls…
a.  Use for holding your hair ties
b.  Use as a seedling starter cup

4.  Reuse old clothes…
a.  Reuse those jeans you can’t fit into anymore by turning it inside out and make a purse. Those pockets are great for storing things.  Make a laptop bag or a shaggy area rug.
b.  Reuse those sweaters to make mittens, hats, scarves, arm warmers, leg warmers, etc…

HOW TO crochet, knit, sew, paint (watercolors, oil paints, craft paints), speak a new language, play an instrument, shave, put your makeup on and what you should buy, etc…

BUILD a house, computer, go cart, robot, deck, your muscles, etc…

Forget how to do CPR?  Watch it on here and keep it fresh in your mind.

You can watch FREE workout videos

The list goes on and on…

Let me know your favorite things to watch on YouTube!
