file it friday

During the week I come across a lot of articles and blog posts that I think are worth reading. Or I come across a new recipe I want to try or a craft idea. Most of the time I don’t have time to read the whole article or follow through with making the the item at that moment. The ideas are just “filed” away for another day.

I thought it would be fun to share some of the ideas and articles I come across so you can file them for later. Plus this will give me a way to “file” the links to articles I want to read more about later!

This weeks File it Friday ideas:


Criss Cross Outdoor Planters: This blog post has step by step instructions and measurements for these cool planters!

 Backyard Games: Get ready for warm weather and outdoor time with your kiddos! Checkout this long list of backyard games!

TeePee Trellis: If you are planting peas or beans, checkout these tips for building a trellis.

Chicken Apple Bacon Burgers: Wow! This combination sounds AMAZING! Hopefully these will appear on my grill soon!


Homemade Ding Dongs: If you have a chocolate craving, checkout these homemade ding dongs!

I would love for all of you to share your File it Friday finds! Did you come across a post this week that is worth sharing? A recipe, a craft, parenting tip or another good article? Feel free to share the link in the comment box below.

  1. Hi Renae,

    I love researching for neat tips too. One tip is to hang dry your laundry all year round. I set-up an umbrella style clothes hanger in my basement next to the woodstove, you can see on my blog.
    Free drying, and free humidifying all winter long. The umbrella dryer can hold four full loads at one time!
