Back to School Staples Giftcard Giveaway

 

Back to School with a Staples Giftcard Giveaway

Back to School can be a seriously expensive time. New clothes, new shoes, school fees, and school supply lists can really break the bank.

And homeschoolers can add in new curriculum to that long list of supplies! While we often don’t need the same thing as our public school counter-parts, homeschoolers can still shell out a lot of money for back to school.

That’s why I’m happy to have a quick Staples Giftcard Giveaway to help you out, whether you’re a public schooler, a private schooler, or a homeschooooler like us- $100 or $50 at Staples would be pretty darn awesome!

Preserving Digital Memories with Lyve


Preserving Digital Memories with Lyve #MemoryLane - digital pictures

How many digital pictures do you think you’ve taken over the years? If you’re like me, you’re probably snapping away all day long. I’m old school, so I remember taking pictures with film and the thrill of paying to pick those pictures up from developing and happily seeing the memories I was able to capture. I have to tell you, while I took a lot fewer pictures in those days, more of them ended up being displayed or put in albums for future reference. Dealing with my digital pictures is something I think I’ll get to “some day” and then never seem to get to at all. If something happens to my computers (and I have digital pictures stored on I don’t know how many different computers) all of my memories are pretty much lost.

How to Make Homemade 12 Grain Bread

Many thanks to Wondermix for sponsoring this post.

Continuing with my Earth Month Challenge this week – I’m moving to food. Today, I’m showing your how to make a delicious, homemade 12 Grain Bread. Bread is often a source of hidden ingredients (potassium bromate, trans fats, monoglycerides, diglycerides, BHA, high fructose corn syrup, coloring, soy lecithin – to name a few). Since I’d rather not feed my family these ingredients, I’ve learned over the years to bake my own super yummy bread. Another bonus – baking my bread is also lot cheaper than buying it from the store!

How to Bake 5 Loaves of 10-Grain Bread in Under 2 Hours and a Wondermix Giveaway

One way that I keep my costs down is to grind my own flour. I buy wheat berries in bulk from Azure Standard and make my own flour for pennies on the dollar. Because I don’t have a lot of time, and I have six hungry people to feed, I need to bake a lot of bread very quickly. Using the right equipment, I’m able to grind my own flour AND bake five loaves of yummy bread in under two hours – from start to finish, including clean up time. That’s not all active time either. The bread rises for half an hour and also bakes for half an hour.

How to Make Homemade 12 Grain Bread and WonderMix GiveawayI grew up eating what I call REAL BREAD in Germany. Bread that crunches. Bread that’s made with whole ingredients. Bread that has flavor. We used to joke that American Bread was plastic compared to the German bread we bought from bakeries. You know what plastic bread I’m talking about, right? After I got married and started cooking for my husband and then later my kids, there weren’t many great bread options for me. The good bread that I could find was seriously expensive and out of my price range. After meeting a woman who ground her own flour and baked her own delicious bread in 2003, I think, I was hooked. And I have been grinding my own flour and baking my own bread ever since.
