More than One E-Mail Account

E-Mails can be annoying and then there's the ones from Nigeria which are super polite and want to help you obtain millions of dollars by just paying some minor fees to obtain the money!
But if you are careful whom you give your address to then most of these won't appear on your personal account.
The solution is to set up another account and give that address when signing up for things online that require an e-mail address or for companies where you do business but you won't need urgent alerts from.
I have three accounts, one for personal e-mails, one for writing/business related e-mails and one that might possibly generate junk.

Water Bottles in Planters

When you have a deep planter, it can both use a large amount of soil to fill and make it extremely heavy. I saw a tip this week that suggested putting water bottles (leave cap on) in the bottom and then fill with dirt.

This is from Jessika Taynara DIY. Her You Tube video is not in English but it's easy to see how she made a great set of kitchen furniture for her daughter using items she already had.

Homemade Air Freshner

You don't need to buy expensive air freshener. Use a few ingredients you probably already have at home.

To make a batch:

Essential oil (30 drops)
Water - 3 cups (use distilled water if you intend to spray it on furniture or carpets and make sure you test a small area first)
Baking soda - 1 1/2 tablespoons

Make sure ingredients are blended/stirred well and put in a spray bottle.
