How to Pack Only 2 Pairs of Underwear for Any Trip – Scrubba Review

I’m a minimalist. Sometimes people can’t understand why I minimize certain parts of my life but it’s like a drug for me. I love simple. I’ve been doing some traveling lately and I hate checking bags. I want to just take a small roller carry-on and my computer bag. If I have to take more than that, the trip is not worth it and I am probably spending way too much money. Six months ago I bought a Scrubba. It’s a small green laundry wash bag that has changed my life when I travel. No matter how long the...

The non-member student asked why he was a fan of University of Michigan if he attended the University of Utah. The returned missionary then stated, “Oh….well, you see, I spent two years...

Any topic can come up and they confidently say, “That reminds me of a scripture; let’s turn to it, shall we?” Contrast that with someone like myself.

Tithing Settlement Tear-Off Schedule

‘Tis the season to go shopping, make neighbor treats, attend Christmas concerts, visit the family, wrap gifts, put up the Christmas tree, and while doing all this the bishop needs you to find 15 minutes in your schedule to come settle your tithing. Don’t try to sneak out of this one or else the bishop will hunt you down and make the process more painful (not really). If you don’t show up the bishop will have to use his best judgement (wild guess) and declare your tithing for you. It’s best to open up your schedule and make some...
