    Simple Solar System

    I set out to hook-up a small charge controller to my inverter, battery bank, and solar panels. My cabin is totally powered by two 100-watt solar panels except for the times I need to fire up a generator to power things when I've had too many cloudy days or need more power. I've run an air conditioner on 100-degree days by running the generator.

    Dare to Say No to Single-Use Plastic

    Dare to Say No to Single-Use Plastic

    If you’re like me, the idea that inorganic, non-biodegradable, single-use plastics are somehow the go-to packaging unit is just illogical; almost as illogical as seventeen states in our country having statewide ban preemptions or preventative measures restricting even the possibility of future bans of their use. As crazy as it may seem to some of us, we are still the ones allowing it. Therefore, the purpose of this article is not to place blame, rather, the purpose of this article is to establish personal accountability. Corporations use plastic because it is durable, inexpensive, and accepted by us all.

Yes, I'm not fully awake even when my kids are jumping on my husband and me in bed at 6 AM. This is also another reason why I seriously need my coffee.

    How to Move Out as a Teenager—What You Must Consider

    I moved out of my family home at 18-years-old. I was not kicked out, but circumstances within the home became very difficult, to the point that I found that it was an impossible place to live. To do so, would mean that I would go backwards rather than forwards in recovering from depression and mental illness. It was a painful and disappointing endeavor, but one I am glad I made. It had seemed impossible, I didn't know where to begin and I needed to move quickly.

    A Beginner's Guide to Thrifting

    To the millennial, thrifting is a unique way to add one-of-a-kind pieces of clothing to your wardrobe. It is also a great way to save money on clothing. Most items at thrift stores have lived on Earth longer than you. The trends seen today were trends created years ago. The best part about thrifting is that you'll find the same trendy pieces you'll see at the mall, only for a cheaper price. Thrifting is not only a way to cheaply express your personality through style; it is a helpful way to fight against pollution and climate change.

    DIY - Homemade Dry Laundry Detergent

    As my lifestyle swings further and further towards a radical self-reliance (even though a friend of mine insists there's nothing radical about self-reliance), it is obvious that additional consideration must be given to the things we take for granted in our lives. A sense of cleanliness and respectability are mandatory if one of the primary objectives is to mingle with the people of the world and seek their stories. It goes without saying that you cannot smell the scent of my active lifestyle through a video posted online, but I guarantee that I am very self conscious as I proceed with my plans of going completely off grid with every aspect of my life.

    'Excitebike' Perler Bead DIY

    Greetings, Vocal readers. It’s been a while since I’ve done a perler bead DIY. The last one I’ve done was the Nintendo logo, which was about a month ago. In case you haven’t seen it, I’ll post a link to it at the end of this article. In this article, I’ll show you how to make this rider that you see above from Excitebike. This game made its debut on the Famicom in 1984 and as a launch title for the NES a year later. When I first played it on the NES Classic a couple of years ago, it wasn’t like any of the other racing games that I was used to playing. Every time I would jump over a ramp, I would fall off my bike. So long story short, I placed 23rd in a race and haven’t played that game since. Hopefully I’ll play it again someday and improve.

    Modeling

    Growing up I was always told that I was ugly and couldn't be anything beautiful because I wasn't "allowed" to. I always wanted to be a model and or actress but between kids & my foster parents I never thought I'd be able to. Now I am modeling and acting, I've changed my appearance and the way I feel about myself and I feel more in control of my life. It took a long time but it is worth it. The way I see myself now, no one can bring me down ever again. I know that from the start if wouldn't be easy but I knew it was possible. My confidence level is higher than ever and I am thankful for the people who support me through this journey and who bring me up when I'm down.

A product review is important for any shopping platform as it provides clients with an opportunity to rate and give their views on products they have procured. This is done precisely on the product page where other consumers or potential product buyers go through when deciding on which product to purchase. Product reviews also give sellers an upper hand in penetrating the market segment by attracting more potential buyers.
