3 Easy Ways to Guard Your Health Before You Leave the House

  Guest post by Nina Nelson Does your family get sick all the time? It doesn’t just feel like it – you literally say, “we’re sick again” at least twice a month. I’m sorry, friend. I know how it is, really. I used to say the same thing quite frequently. But not anymore. Now, illness just isn’t something that happens much in our home. We’re exposed to a lot of it, for sure. My husband is a paramedic and spends a good deal of time taking […]

Elegant Rose Boutique Review (Natural Beauty, Hair & Skincare for the DIY Challenged)

Many of our Keeper of the Home readers are big on DIY, and I can understand why. You can create your own products, customized just the way you like them, with ingredients you know are safe and pure, for much less than you can buy them for. But, it’s not for everyone.

DIY Hand Sanitizer for When You're Out and About {KeeperOfTheHome.org}

Simple DIY Hand Sanitizer

  By Leigh Ann Dutton, Contributing Writer I’m not a germaphobe. I think dirt is good, and I like to keep beneficial bacteria around. I believe these things strengthen the immune system, which is especially helpful as we come upon cold and flu season yet again. Needless to say, I’m not running around wiping everything clean 24/7, rubbing hand sanitizer on my children’s hands at the drop of a hat, or refusing to enter the public domain for the next six months. We can’t avoid every […]

If you’re going to spend a big chunk of money on a high-quality blender, you want to make sure it’s going to do the job and do it for years to come.  For most of us, an expensive purchase like a Vitamix or Blendtec high speed blender is a carefully-made decision, and a purchase for which you’re likely to spend time saving up for. Ultimately, the cost is worth it in my opinion. It was 8 years ago that I first saved up to purchase a Vitamix […]
