Five Great Tips to Make Life Easier
How did it get to be Friday so quickly? And September? Seriously? Wow!
For you regular Nourish and Nestlers, you know that the first Friday of every month is our Five Tips Friday feature, a short post all about Tips to Make Life Easier, a little more organized and maybe with a few more $$$ in your pocket.
And since I’m a huge believer in crowdsourcing, if you have noodled a way to do something easier or cheaper…please consider passing it on. I’d love to incorporate tips from our readers into the Five Tips Friday list. Email your tips to [email protected]
So, if you have a hack that makes life easier, is a less expensive way to do something or saves you money…bring it!

Many restaurants have the drops boxes and you can also print off a label at reduced shipping to ship your crayons here.
That recently happened to me and I’m going to show you how I mended it. I have tried mending with needle and thread before, but I have found that on a fine gauge t-shirt, it’s hard to have the mended spot stay ‘smooth’.
This time I tried using a little light fusible bond instead of traditional iron-on, which I topped with a lightweight stabilizer. I felt the traditional iron-on patch would have been too heavy for the fine gauge.
I then ironed the stabilizer with a medium heat iron.
As the fusible bonding is adhesive on both sides, you need the stabilizer between the iron and the bonding. If you look real close, you can still find the hole, but it’s so much better and much less obvious now. Plus, this mending will prevent the hole from getting any bigger.
