Launch Day

Well today is launch day and I am so excited about this new blog!! I am going to do a lot of research for frugal tips, websites and companies and you will find all kinds of helpful tips and articles right here!
So my first tip is Listerine to kill and repel mosquitos! My wonderful friend CW shared this tip from her daughter (my cousin! LOL). So hope as we head in to the summer time fun outdoors that this tip will make it more bearable!!!
A little insight on Listerine.
I was at a deck party awhile back, and the bugs were having a ball biting everyone. A man at the party sprayed the lawn and deck floor with Listerine, and the little demons disappeared. The next year I filled a 4-ounce spray bottle and used it around my seat whenever I saw mosquitoes. And voila! That worked as well... It worked at a picnic where we sprayed the area around the food table, the children's swing area, and the standing water nearby. During the summer, I don't leave home without it.....Pass it on.
OUR FRIEND'S COMMENTS: I tried this on my deck and around all of my doors.
It works - in fact, it killed them instantly. I bought my bottle from Target and it
Cost me $1.89. It really doesn't take much, and it is a big bottle, too; so it is not
As expensive to use as the can of Bug-spray you buy that doesn't last 30 minutes.
So, try this, please. It will last a couple of days. Don't spray directly on a wood
Door (like your front door), but spray around the frame. Spray around the window
Frames, and even inside the dog house.
Now these are Good Mosquitos!!!
