things i’m digging…
You guys have heard of Dropbox, right? And you’re using it every single day, right? No!? What!?
Dropbox is my single most favorite online utility ever. Basically, you set up a free account, set it up on all your devices and you have an instant file storing and sharing folder. Need to access a file you were working on at home from your work computer? BAM. Put it in the Dropbox and it’s automagically there. Saved an important document to your computer but need to access it on the go? You can from the Dropbox mobile apps or website. I actually don’t even store stuff on my computer hardrive anymore. I never have to email myself files or say, “Oh, that’s on my home computer, I’ll get it to you tomorrow.” My favorite part is that there is no uploading. Dropbox is just setup as a folder on my computer like any other folder. I drag a file into that folder and it magically uploads it and distributes it to all my devices. It’s the cloud, friends!
Worth noting, I know this sounds like a paid review, but I promise it isn’t. I just get ridiculously excited about cool free tools. If you sign up through my link, I do get more space added to my account, which would be cool, but I mostly just want you to experience the awesome that is Dropbox.
2. My slow cooker.
It’s no secret that I have a serious love affair with my slow cooker, but I’ve been really putting ole Hammy to use a lot lately. I think the slow cooker is the single most important kitchen gadget for busy folks. You don’t even need a recipe! You can pretty much throw anything into the slow cooker and after 8-10 hours of simmering, it’ll be tender and delicious. We had pot roast this past weekend. And it was amazing. And took me all of 10 minutes to throw together in the morning.
3. Online window shopping.
The Johnston pay-off-debt budget plan has seriously cut into my cute clothes fund, but, for now, browsing the internet for beautiful things is satisfying my craving. I love all the clothes ever. Check out my fashion board on Pinterest for the sources of all of these beautiful things. Fake shopping is so much less stressful than real shopping anyway.
We started composting (with a little patio-sized compost tumbler) this Fall and it has been amazing! Since we eat so many whole foods, our trash was always packed with things like egg shells, potato skins and lettuce leaves. But now, our trash output has been reduced by a ton, and we are creating an awesome, healthy mix for plants. I was worried we’d fill up the tumbler too quickly, but the compost is doing its thang and even after over six months of scraps put in, it’s only about 1/4 full. Composting is cool!

You know what I’m not digging? My blog being so slow lately. So sorry for that! I’m working on it, I promise. Thanks for sticking with me.
