Self-Watering Solutions for a Vertical Garden

My problem with vertical gardening is that I don't know how to find a watering system for when I am away from home for several weeks. Does anyone have any affordable suggestions? I would greatly appreciate advice about that.

Cheap Creative Vacation Souvenir Ideas for Kids

We are taking an extended vacation this summer and are determined to make this a cash only vacation (no credit card debt to pay for anything!). I am looking for cheap creative souvenir ideas for my kids ages 16, 11 and 5. Even though we have been planning this trip as a family for months and they are fully aware that we will not be spending much on souvenirs (there is very little allotted in our vacation budget for souvenirs), I feel like collecting souvenirs is a fun part of vacationing and my kids especially love it. I would love help with creative ideas for cheap (or free!) neat things we can keep an eye out for that will keep our trip fun and affordable and provide us with some great mementos to remember our trip by without me constantly telling my younger two 'no' to every gift shop we have to walk through to get out of whatever exhibit or activity we are touring. Or maybe creative things to do with our vacation photos that we can collect and create on our return. I think if they already have some fun alternatives to the pricey gift shop junk in mind, it can make this aspect of our trip more enjoyable for both my kids and us parents who have to make sure we stick to our budget. Thanks!!
