As I have mentioned many times before, I love Real Simple Magazine. Every month, I start reading it the day it arrives – it arrived last Friday, and I have already happily made my way through it. The cover makes me smile – it’s just so happy and sunny! You will see it on newstands on Monday if you are not already a subscriber.
There are two stories in this month’s issue that I really loved. One was the Back-t0-Basics cleaning. You may remember that a couple of months ago I wrote about using leftover lemon rinds to clean. If you found this concept interesting and have been experimenting with green cleaning in your home, you have to check out this article – it covers using essential oils, regular oil, castile soap, baking soda and lemons as part of an eco-friendly cleaning routine. The article is very informative and in the latest print issue.
The second article I liked is called “Can Facebook Be Your Friend?” – it is also in this issue, and this particular one is already up online. The article addresses well the pros and cons of Facebook and is a good perspective of what being a Facebook user can mean for you if you are not a student or young professional. It’s also a great reminder that as long as you know what privacy settings to use and how much you want to post online, Facebook can be a wonderful way to stay in closer touch with people than you might otherwise.
