To keep cats from getting into things that you don’t want them to, take a plastic bag and fill it with aluminum cans, shake the bag at them and they will run from what they are about to get into. They will learn what this bag is and they will stay away from whatever it is you want them to stay away from. This works because I have tried it.


Household tip: Buy a caddy and store aluminum foil, wax paper and other small items in it. By doing this, they will be at your fingertips. Store this caddy under the sink.

Shopping tip: Whenever you buy a new clothing item, throw out the old item or give it away, you can also do this whenever you buy other new items.

Shopping tip: Before shopping for new clothes, always check to see what you already have, this way you will not buy clothes that you don’t need.

Pet peeve: telemarketers calling a person that is on the “Do Not Call List.” These people should check this list before making calls to someone that is on the list and should never call the same person three or four times.
