How to Keep Your Phone Charger Easily Accessible

There are some things in life that aren't necessarily huge problems, but rather little annoyances. They're the kind of things that can be the straw that broke the camels back when you're having a bad day. We all have these little annoyances, these little pet peeves; and one of mine is this...

How to Make the Most of Your Space in a Small Kitchen

Robyn and I don't have much counter space in our kitchen. At all. It makes it difficult to do more than one or two things at once (and we can forget about having the oven and dishwasher open at the same time). So sometimes, we have to get creative with how we use the space we have. To that end, here's a trick I'm anxious to try...

How to Remove Hard-Boiled Eggs from Boiling Water Without Dropping Them or Burning Yourself

I may have a long way to go on my journey to culinary expertise (a LONG way), but that doesn't mean I haven hard-boiled eggs before (after all, I love dying Easter Eggs)!

How to Fix Leaking Tiki Torches

With the Great Colorado Outdoors Show coming up this weekend, I got to thinking about outdoor fun. Obviously, anytime you're outside in Summertime, you're at the mercy of local insects, like mosquitoes.

How to Butter Your Movie Popcorn Perfectly

The last time I had movie popcorn with butter on it, it was disgusting. The person at the concession stand drenched the top of the bucket in butter, which then seeped down to the bottom and made the whole thing a soggy mess. It was so bad, we had to ask them for a fresh batch, with no butter this time. I've seen some theaters that let patrons butter their own popcorn, but I've always been afraid of messing it up just as badly as that cashier. Until now...

How to Pack Dog Food for Your Vacation

So, you're heading up to the mountains for a few days, and you want to take the pups with you. What are you going to do about dog food? Pay way too much for a small bag in a mountain town grocery store, when you already have plenty at home? No way! Fill a cheap zip-top bag with kibble and hope it doesn't explode in the car?

How to Soak Up Liquids at the Bottom of Your Trash Can

My wife and I moved recently; and when I went to empty the trash can for the last time before packing it, I couldn't believe how gross it had become. There was all manner of dried-up, syrupy gunk at the bottom. Yuck! I'm definitely doing something like this from now on...
