5 Ways to Make Better Scrambled Eggs

When I’m home alone, I’ll often make scrambled eggs for dinner. The catch? I wing it every time and have no idea what I’m doing.

Says Lib on 10 things to keep in your kitchen: “I’ve started paying close attention (not in a creepy way, but in a present and interested way) to other people’s grocery items while I wait in line. Makes the time actually enjoyable, and seeing how other people choose to fill their carts and homes feels so intimate to me, like a glimpse into their solo weeknight creativities or kids’ favorites.”

Says Lauren on New Year’s resolutions: “I’ve found monthly resolutions to be much better for me. Having just 30 days to accomplish a goal gets me going more than a yearly, ‘Okay, THIS is the year I stop eating so much chocolate.’ January’s resolution is to not use my phone in bed. Small, but I’ve already gotten through most of a novel! At the end of the month, I can stop and move on to the next one. However, I’ve found that a month is enough to make something a habit.”

Says Jen on New Year’s resolutions: “My snarky goal one year was to replace all of my small, silly underwear with huge panties and just BE OK WITH IT, and it is still the best resolution I’ve ever made! My life seriously changed when I bought undies two sizes too big. So comfy! No wedgies! I am a hardcore big panty evangelist now.”

P.S. We have a partnerships job opening, if you’re looking!
