If you’re like me and have an over abundance of tea bags that you aren’t going to use, try these uses that I found. Add a few to your bath and enjoy its soothing properties. Soak some in cold water and apply to your eyes to get rid of bagginess and dark circles. Apply to skin to relieve the discomfort of a mild sunburn or bug bites.

Have a teenager in the house with an acne problem? Try these homemade zit zapper remedies.

• Dilute some apple cider vinegar in a little water and then dab onto face with a cotton ball.

• Create a paste with baking soda and water and then apply to your face as needed. Leave on for 15 minutes and then rinse off. Repeat daily as needed.

• Fresh squeeze a lemon and apply the juice to your entire face. Leave on for about 15 minutes to an hour before rinsing off. For other acne remover ideas, visit http://www.littlehouseliving.com/homemade-zit-zapper.html.


If you’re looking for some inexpensive home entertainment or maybe a gift idea, Amazon has some DVDs that are currently $5 or under. Some of the family movies include “Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who,” “Annie,” and “The Secret Garden.” Others include “Sleepless in Seattle,” “West Side Story,” “Spider Man 2,” and “Walk the Line.” For more information, visit http://www.frugallivingnw.com/amazon-dvds-5-or-under/.
