Ever go to cook a fabulous meal, but found your knives deadly dull? Your tried and true blades were with you through thick and thin, went through a heavy mining process to get to your knife block, and deserve longer lives. So before tossing them in the trash, try sharpening them.

Maybe you already do it (though you’ll never admit it), but did you know peeing in the shower can actually save water?  The average toilet uses 5-7 gallons of water each time you flush, which is about 80 glasses of water (10 days worth, if you’re doing 8 a day).  Multiply all of those gallons times the amount of times you pull the handle in a day day and that’s a lot of wasted water.  Each time you skip a flush, you’re saving water.  Peeing in the shower might seem gross, but fresh urine is actually sterile and harmless, and you’re washing anyway, right?  Give it a try — it won’t hurt you.  Yellow can be green when you skip a flush!
