So, it was super-hot here about a week ago, and from what I've been hearing, it got super-hot everywhere else this past week. I FEEL YOUR PAIN, everyone. To all of those out there without a/c, I salute you! To those of you with a/c and/or pools, can I come hang out at your house?
Anyway, here are some links to entertain while you are huddled around your oscillating fans in your frugal homes, dreaming of autumn:
Life before air conditioning, a classic post from from @mental_floss
Different categories of people without A/C, in order of the reasonable sympathy one bears for them, from @thehairpin
The many uses of dryer sheets from @hellogiggles
4 easy steps for DIY laundry detergent from @suddenlyfrugal
How to save money on birth control from @tbtam
Handmade handtowels to brighten your bathroom is a pretty easy-looking craft (...if you have a sewing machine) for an instant bathroom makeover from @kkthriftyways
And congrats to Little House in the Valley, who just celebrated their almost-2-year blogversary with a massive giveaway (and I totally won an Amazon gift card... score!!)
AAAND here are some kittens playing DJ on some turntables. I mean, if you're into that sort of thing.
