DIY Saving Piggy Banks

diy savings piggy bank

We are all about making our own things, and saving money while doing so. Why not put all that money that we are saving in a safe place that we make ourselves? Welcome back to another DIY blog post. Today’s article will be on DIY Saving Piggy Banks.

We have all owned a piggy bank at one point or another in our lives. It is like a right of passage for any child to become an avid saver.  As such, why not reintroduce such an excellent practice to your young one. The videos below will show you some of the most creative ways to make saving boxes.

Let us have a look, shall we?

 

1. Creative DIY Saving Banks

This box is amazing because you can customize it in any way at all. The box in this tutorial will require some basic carpentry but it’s nothing you can’t do yourself. The result is a sturdy finish with an imaginative design. It can also be motivational, and can push your child or yourself to save the desired amount of money so that you can achieve your heart’s desire (maybe travel the world). This is definitely a must try DIY task.

 

2.    DIY Saving Box With Safety Feature

This video shows a mini safe, with a combination lock and everything. It may seem a bit complex to make but if you follow the instructions carefully then you will make it perfectly. If watching the video is not enough, you can find the written measurements for all the required pieces in the description below the video on YouTube. This project is good for persons who are in communal living conditions, such as college students. The best way to make this safe even more secure is to use wood instead of cardboard.

 

3. Simple DIY Saving Bank

Here we have another mini diy safe. This tutorial will teach you how to make a simple but creative box to save in. It does not require a lot of time (it takes less than a half hour to make) and you only need a few materials. You can be done in a few simple steps if you try it now. Once again, this concept can be applied with a stronger material like wood for a sturdier box.

 

4. Basic DIY Money Jar for Saving

This is quite possibly the simplest saving bank for your money. Literally, all you have to do it use a mason jar, or any other jar that you may have and cut a hole for inserting the money into the lid or cap of the jar. 

You can use mason jars to do a lot more things. They are very inexpensive and you can get yours here..

5. DIY Piggy Banks from Plastic Bottle

Instead of throwing away your plastic bottles, how about recycling them to make something useful? You can make these super easy piggy banks, just like the ones you buy at the store. The best part is that you will be using materials that you would otherwise throw away. Also, you can use water bottles of any size; the bigger, the better!

Healthy Popsicle Recipes

healthy popsicle recipes

Welcome back to another blog post on healthy eating. Today’s article will be on Healthy Popsicle Recipes. As we all must have realized by now, the days are getting hotter and hotter and we need something to cool our bodies down. One of the best ways to do that is by having some cool fresh popsicles!

Many of the store bought popsicles we have are high in sugars, and have a lot of artificial ingredients, such as food coloring and other additives. The recipes below, however, use all natural ingredients and little to no sugar whatsoever. So, not only will you be enjoying a cool and satisfying snack, you will also be doing it in a healthy way. What’s better than that?

Let’s get to the videos…

 

1. Strawberry Popsicle Recipe

This recipe uses strawberries as the main flavor. The recipe is also very substitute friendly, meaning you can substitute almost all the ingredients for anything that you prefer. (Anything that is healthy, that is.) For example, you can substitute the strawberries with other fruits so that you will have a new flavor of popsicle.

You can buy popsicle molds here on amazon, or, you can learn how to make it for yourself here.

 

2. Healthy Oreo Popsicles

This recipe only calls for milk, Oreos and vanilla extract. You can mix and switch any types of milk that you would like. Remember these recipes are not set in stone. I recommend using non-fat milk as much as possible. Oreo Popsicles are perfect for children, or anyone who loves milk and cookies. It is also a fun way of substituting those milk and cookies. You can use chocolate chip cookies, or any other cookie instead of the Oreo in this recipe.

 

3. Healthy Popsicle Recipes for Energy

These popsicles have a lot of health benefits for the body. Each of them has its own good-for-you qualities. They are also fun to make, and fun to eat. Some of these popsicles are unusual but will definitely not disappoint you. It just goes to show that you can use almost anything to make popsicles.

 

4. Easy and Healthy Fudge Popsicle

Here is a chocolatey, healthy and delicious fudgesicle recipe. It only requires four ingredients, which are coconut milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and maple syrup as the sweetener. Go ahead and give it a try.

 

5. Vegan Popsicle Recipes

With only two ingredients each, these popsicles are completely vegan and healthy. The fruit flavors make them extra delicious and will leave you wanting more. They are easy to make so you can go ahead and try it right away.

DIY Body Exfoliating Scrubs

body exfoliating scrub

Welcome back to another DIY blog post and today’s article will be about DIY Exfoliating Body Scrubs. You will learn how to make them, and how to use them.

Since we are all in quarantine, this is as perfect a time as any to refresh and rejuvenate our minds and bodies.  We may not get time like this again so we should definitely make the best use of this. Remember that self-care is ultimately the most important thing, and exfoliation is one way to do it.

I highly urge you to relax, clean and open up those pores, and use this time to reflect. Reflect on your achievements and failures, and also think about what you can do better when all this is over. Self-improvement is key.

Now, without further ado, let’s learn some amazing self care routines…

1. DIY Coffee Face Scrub

Here is a natural scrub for your face that uses ingredients that you more than likely already have at home. This works best for persons with oily skin, who want their faces to be a little less greasy. Coffee has so many health benefits, including the fact that it is an anti-aging agent.

Check out these other benefits of coffee on the skin.

 

2. DIY Exfoliating Scrub for Dry and Sensitive Skin

This video shows you how to make a face scrub if you have dry skin, or sensitive skin. It is soothing and it moisturizes your face to reduce the dryness.  All you need to make this are coconut oil, baking soda, and honey. Each of these ingredients has its own benefits on the skin and a combination of all three works wonders for the face. Try it for yourself today.

 

3. DIY Exfoliating Scrub for the Body and Face

Sugar is one of the best items to use to exfoliate the skin and brown sugar is best to use because of its rough texture. This makes it able to really get rid of all the stuff that don’t belong in your pores. It is excellent for ‘unclogging’ your pores, leaving your face and body feeling clean and breathable. You can make this scrub in any consistency that you prefer, whether it is more on the watery or thin side, or more on the dry and thick side. Go ahead and give it a try.

 

4. DIY Body Exfoliating Scrub

This video is very similar to the previous one, in that it also uses sugar as the base of the scrub. The difference is that, instead of using honey, this tutorial uses olive oil as the moisturizing agent. This scrub is also more on the liquid side, but it is perfectly okay to make it thicker.

Check out these benefits of using olive oil on your skin.

Healthy Dessert Recipes

healthy dessert recipes

Welcome back to another blog post on healthy eating. Today’s article will be about some healthy dessert recipes. Yes, we love all our readers, so we have compiled a few videos that will help you to indulge in desserts without feeling guilty.

Remember though, that it is important to pace yourself. You cannot, and should not eat more than the portions set out, otherwise the whole point of having healthy desserts will be lost. Self discipline is important, so try as best as possible not to get carried away. We know that the desserts are delicious, but being healthy is best. So let us treat ourselves with some delicious desserts, that are not bad for your health.

Let’s get into the videos…

 

1. The Chocolate Brownies You Must Have

As seen in the video, this recipe is completely dairy free, gluten free, and sugar free. It only requires four essential ingredients which are all wholly natural. The process to make these brownies is not long either. All you have to do is add all the ingredients to a blender, or any mixing machine. Then pour the mixture into a prepared pan, bake and serve. 

 

2. 4 Delicious and Healthy Muffins

The four muffins that are in this video are chocolate chip muffins, apple banana oat muffins, cinnamon raisin muffins, and strawberry muffins. These are the healthy at home versions of treats we usually buy that pack a lot of calories. They are good for you and taste great. You can have these as healthy snacks, desserts, and even for breakfast.

Oats are one of the healthiest ingredients you can cook with. Check out this article on 50 Things to Make with Oats.

3. Lose Weight with these Healthy Dessert Ideas

The dessert ideas in this video are toe-curlingly delicious. They range from fruit crepes, to peanut butter cookies, to banana cakes, with only a few ingredients. You will definitely find something you love in this video. You can go ahead and try them all to see which one is the best.

 

4. Low Calorie Dessert Recipes

Did someone say chocolate? All of these desserts incorporate some chocolate. These are healthy because they are so high in protein, and so low in calories. One of the biggest keys to having healthy desserts is to ensure that you are reducing and limiting the amount of sugar in your desserts.

 

5. Healthy Desserts with No Sugar Added

Ice cream with three ingredients, your own Starbucks Frappuccino with three ingredients, and cookie dough with only four essential and healthy ingredients, are all what you will find in this video. If you did not believe that desserts could  be healthy, I am sure you do now. Just remember not to get carried away when having these desserts.

If you know of the ketogenic diet, you will know that it works very well, especially for people who wish to lose weight, or reduce their intake of carbs.

After that, your body starts burning fat for energy easily.

The videos below will show you how, and what you need to make the amazingly healthy meals to help you to reach your goal.

You will hardly have cravings, and if you do there will always be a keto food to eat that can crush it. The best part is that you will absolutely love the meals, and you will always be full.
