 If you want to get more involved with your local community, then you’ll be glad to know that this is very easy to do.

Look out for Local Events

If possible, you need to try and keep an eye out in the local newspaper for any announcements. It may be that there is a music festival going on, or that someone is hosting an arts exhibition. If this is the case, then you may want to try and do your bit to take part. If you can do this, then you will be able to attract people to the local community and you may even find that you can do your bit to help people who may be in need of an extra pair of hands. Simply attending the events will also help you to boost your local community spirit.

Give up your Time

There truly are so many ways that you can give up your time. It may be that you choose to give up your time and offer people who need it, dog walking services. You may also want to visit your local animal shelter to see if they need any help walking the animals that they have. Think about what is truly important to you, and then reach out to the organization that may need help. If you can do this, then you will soon find that it is easier than ever for you to feel satisfaction from the efforts you are putting in.


You don’t always need to give up your time to help the local community. Sometimes donating your clothes or even your household goods can be good. if you have any bed linen that you don’t use anymore, then give it to a homeless shelter. You can donate your books to a local library, or you can even donate toys to a children’s play center. If you want some additional ideas, then explore school fundraising to see if there is anything you can do there.

Shop Locally

Buy from your local vendors where possible. You never know when you are going to find the cutest bracelet from a festival or when you are going to find paintings that might have been created by a local artist. Shopping at a farmer’s market is also a good idea as this means that your money will go right to the people who need it. Sometimes it is the smallest acts of kindness that make the biggest difference, so be mindful of this if you can.

Join a Group

If you can take the time to find a group that may be going on in your local area, then this can also be a very valuable use of your time. If you go to a local group, then you may find that you can learn of people who are just like you, and you can also learn about activities you might enjoy as well.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
