Homestead Hack: Tame Electrical Cords

by Tammy Taylor~

In my kitchen I have an appliance cabinet.  There I store various electric appliances & hand tools, such as slow cookers, blenders, a stick blender,  electric knife, etc.  The hand tools such as the electric knife & stick blender are small so I bundle them into a wide-mouth bucket on one of the shelves.  But when it’s time to fetch one of them I used to hate how the cords would always be all be tangled around each other. But no more! Use Whatcha Got, y’all!  Check out this Homestead Hack.

How do you tame all the electrical cords for your small appliances? Use Whatcha Got! Check out this Homestead Hack. #TaylorMadeHomestead Continue reading

Want To Keep Christ In Christmas?

by Tammy Taylor~

For fellow Christians who really want to keep Christ in Christmas, there’s no need to demand that companies say ‘Merry Christmas’ instead of ‘Happy Holidays’ or shout about the design on a disposable cup.  It’s actually much easier than you’d think.

Let’s all strive for a kinder, gentler holiday season this year.

Thinking of Adding a Pup to Your Home this Christmas?

by Tammy Taylor~

When the kids were little we brought home a little black mini-toy poodle – our youngest named him ‘Toto.  Yep, you can just guess which of her favorite movies our daughter had just watched!  Toto was her constant companion from the time she was 4 years old until she was grown.  When she moved out after she graduated high school she even took him with her.  He lived a long time & died at a ripe old age of 14 years, well loved all the way through.

Are you thinking of adding a pup to your home? That's AWESOME! But be sure you're ready for the commitment. #TaylorMadeHomestead

Homestead Hack: Saving Your Fingernails When Cleaning

by Tammy Taylor~

We’ve all been there.  You scrub & scrub your stove but that tiny little stuck-on piece is being stubborn.  You scratch at it with your fingernail to dry to dislodge it.  But since your hands have been in the water, those fingernails don’t have the same ooomph as when they’re dry.  So you continue to scrub instead.  But I’m all for not spending more time cleaning that necessary.  And sometimes the easiest solution to a problem is also the simplest.  Check out this handy Homestead Hack.  Use Whatcha Got!
