Print Friendly
Have you ever come across at a web page, found it really valuable and decided to print it? What happened when you did? I bet you ended up printing tons of unnecessary pages, when you really only needed a page of that content. What's the solution? A website called 'Print Friendly' -- where it turns a web page into a compact printable document. This will save you a lot of time, paper and ink.

DIY Life
We have a new apartment here in the United States. Living here is very much different than in the Philippines. One big difference is that in Manila, we had great access to freelance maintenance work that practically cost nothing. Here, it costs an arm and a leg to get something simple done. DIY Life is my go-to website to home projects that I can learn to do myself.
