Thrifty Tips for April 12




When you are out and about you may find the need to find a WiFi spot.  WiFi Finder is the perfect app for you.  Search out the hotspots for where you are or where you are going.  After the app finds the spots, you can simply save the ones you may use to your favorites.  That way you know where to go when you are out and about which comes in handy if you don't have WiFi.  This app is available at Android Apps and iTunes.

This is the story of my life.  My personal motto back when I had one (I'm talking AOL time) was "Where are my keys?"  I have pretty much gotten this whole thing down finally.  It took me many years, but I learned the key was to basically put my keys in the same spot.  Now my personal phrase or motto is "Can you call my cell phone?"  This is because I will get involved with something while holding my phone, and distractedly set it down.  Basically it might as well be in an abyss.  If my husband is home, I would simply ask him to call my phone.  It is effective but embarrassing.  If he isn't home, it is a little more complicated.  Well, not anymore.  Now I simply go to, enter in my phone number, and it rings.  Of course you do need to remember not to put your phone on silence.  :)

The summer is coming and at the very least we have been experiencing fluxes of warmer weather.  What does that translate to?  Shedding.  I thought now would be a nice time to share some pet hair help.

I have a long hair and a short hair cat.  The long hair is a tough customer because she has so much hair, but it does come off in clumps.  The short hair just leaves hair EVERYWHERE.  You can purchase all kinds of fancy doodads to clean up that hair, but really, it is not necessary.  Here are a few tips.

1  - Remove pet hair from furniture, clothing, even carpeting by donning dish washing gloves (yep those big honkin' gloves mom used to where) and rub the fur right off.  It seriously works great.  You can also use gardening gloves if they have the little rubber nubs on them. 

2 - A long squeegie also works like a charm to remove fur from rugs just like a push broom.  It seriously works remarkably well, and you can pick one up fairly cheaply.

3 -  Brushing daily helps as well of course.  One extra trick is to dampen your hands and pet and then use a comb or brush on them.

4 - Dampen a dish towel or old hand towel and repeatedly rub the pet with the towel.  It will accumulate a bunch of hair and you wont.  :)

We have 4 cats and that tip for removing hair from furniture with dishwashing gloves is the best--I use it all the time! Nothing does it better, not even the vacuum.
