I like to read about simple solutions to problems, which you can do yourself. For example, using vinegar to clean without using chemicals. Buzzfeed has an interesting list of D-I-Y suggestions: 30 Insanely Easy Ways to Improve Your Kitchen. It's amazing what you can do with a little imagination and some common things found around the house!
