Stay Home — 10 Tips to Prep for Hibernation

As the winter season grows cold, it’s time to head indoors. In the spring, it’s all about the garden, cleaning and getting reacquainted with nature. In the summer we dine al fresco, swim and sun, and find many a garage, yard and stoop sale from neighbors near and far. Come fall, we take in the changing of the leaves, hike through the hills, drive for the views, grill into the night.

But winter is really when we stay at home, inside, all cozy-like. Similar to our primitive ancestors, we hibernate, so to speak. Now is a time to bunker down, bundle up and appreciate how we are compelled to stay home

How To Make Simple Garlic Miso Soup

Winter is a tough season on our bodies. Our daily lives barely have time for self-care, add harsh weather and grueling commutes, and we find our bodies running on fumes. This broth has saved me time and time again from the bounty of germs winter tends to throw at us.

Here at Krrb Classifieds there’s nothing we love more than a good cause! When we came across Carpet of Life we absolutely knew that we needed to learn more about them and teach all of you about them as well. You simply send in old articles of clothing and they are transformed into beautiful Moroccan rugs made by women in M’hamid El Ghizlane. The act of making these rugs provides financial independence to women who have long depended on their husbands and families; as well as maintains cultural structure and pride in the community.

Krrb Cribs — Painting

Krrb Classifieds is all about redesigning, recycling and reusing. Living in an apartment full of dudes in their mid-twenties is a lot like still being in college. My bedroom definitely still gives off that vibe anyway. So I’ve decided to start redecorating.

As the years go on and I mature, my taste in home decor and the way I present myself does as well. I would like to bring guests back to my apartment and bedroom without it feeling like we’re hanging out in a storage space. So slowly but surely I will turn my room into the comfortable and cozy room it is meant to be.

Krrb founder, George Eid, bustin’ a move!

Music is such an integral part of our society. Whether or not you choose to, we hear music every day. Sitting in the office, grocery shopping or driving around, there’s constantly music playing. It’s no wonder that it can be so intertwined with specific memories from our life. So when we discovered The Nostalgia Machine we were pretty excited.

We decided to take a step back into our awkward teenage years and pick our favorite songs from when we were thirteen. See what special meaning these songs have to us!

It’s a combination of local sharing and technology that has a uniqueness all it’s own.

It’s no slight exaggeration to say that food is always on my mind; many days have been spent drooling over Anthony Bourdain’s culinary adventures that should have probably been spent being productive. However, with my recent move to Brooklyn and dramatically diminished budget, I’ve had to start being very careful with how much I spend on food each week.

How to Make Your Own Shag Rug Out of Old T-Shirts

IMAGE-1-FInished-Rug

Shag rugs were hugely popular in the 1960’s. Next time you watch an old movie, be sure to pay close attention to the room sets—you’re sure to spot a shag rug or two.

They started making a comeback a few years ago, but with lots of improvements. Weaving techniques and fiber content have changed. You no longer need a carpet rake to get the fibers fluffed up! Today’s wall-to-wall shag carpeting is commonly called “frieze.” However, if you’re not ready to replace your old carpeting, try making my version of a retro shag area rug. It’s perfect for the bath or kitchen. No sewing necessary!
