It’s no secret I love animals and have had pets my entire life. I can’t imagine not having a pet as part of our family.
I saw this article on how to get rid of stains on carpet and furniture and found the tips interesting.
This is such a great idea and so simple to do. If you have children and crayons, odds are, you have a collection of broken crayons or crayons so short, it’s hard for little fingers to use. Instead of tossing them out, you can melt them down and create “new” crayons in whatever fun shapes […]
These are simple wreaths that took about 5 minutes to put together and cost less than $10. You can of course use the same ideas and make yours more elaborate but I just wanted to show you that even if you don’t have a creative bone in your body, you can make one, inexpensively.
I try to do a spring and fall closet cleaning and organization every year. These are great times to weed through what you don’t use, what doesn’t fit or needs repairs and to pull out seasonal clothes.
The very first time my husband and I made a meal together when we were dating and then cleaned the kitchen together we created a habit we still do to this day. We both carry the dishes to the kitchen, I put any leftovers in the fridge and take the dishes to him, he rinses […]
I love having floral arrangements scattered throughout our house, especially when we entertain, but I don’t like the expense of them. Today Ashley and I show you how to make some quick, easy, and affordable arrangements using flowers from the grocery store mixed with items from my yard. All of the vases we use, including […]
Here’s some fun and practical ways you can use those corks…
I was at an estate sale the other day and they had their check-out area in the garage. While standing in line, I saw a shelf of cleaning products, glues, and miscellaneous spray cans of stuff. I went over for a closer look and spied a can of Static Guard and was THRILLED…especially because it was almost full and only 50 cents. I have seriously needed a can of Static Guard for FIVE years but always forget to buy it at the store. Seriously.
I saw some car wax on the clearance aisle at Target and almost picked some up and then thought, “I bet we already have some”, and then my next thought was, “And who’s going to actually wax one of the cars if I do buy it”….(for some reason, neither my husband or I do that on […]
There’s no such thing as “a simple glue gun project”. It’s soooo addicting. Proceed with caution. I warn you.
I shop at The Dollar Tree but even if you don’t have that particular store in your area, these are basic items you can find at any $1 store.
Everyone usually has clothespins in the house…even if you don’t use them to hang up clothes on the line to dry. They are cheap, easy to store and can easily be used in some nontraditional ways.
Whether you’re having company over for a Labor Day barbecue or you just want to add some festive flair to your home for the holiday, you don’t have to spend a lot of money or time to whip up some red, white, and blue fun. FOR THE DINING TABLE – You can pick up bandanas […]
Honestly, sewing is not a strength of mine. I can and will sew a button back on a shirt or skirt but that’s the extent of my sewing expertise. So when I saw these no-sew napkins in my “Freakin’ Fabulous On A Budget” by Clinton Kelly book, and saw that they were made from old shirts, […]
I have so much fun trying out these “As Seen On TV” products. I’ve been very surprised at how well some of them work (my favorites so far have been the Genie Bra and Gray Away.) This month I decided to try Windshield Wonder because my car windows were really dirty and I actually found one, […]
I love when I can find everyday items I always have on hand and use them in different ways, especially when it can save me money by not buying “specialty items” that serve only one purpose. EXFOLIATE – This is my very favorite way to exfoliate. I use this method on my face, legs, elbows […]
Plastic squeeze bottles are sold as containers for ketchup and mustard-perfect for an outdoor barbecue. But they’re perfect for other jobs too……you can pick them up in yellow, red or my preference, clear, at the Dollar Tree or any discount store.
Would I ever cook salmon in one? I think not! Would I put my keyboard in the dishwasher, even after I took all the electronic guts out of it? Definitely no. But for plastic toys, baseball caps, and even AC vents: absolutely!
We have a walled-in courtyard area in our front yard which we very seldom used since we love hanging out on the back deck with all the wildlife. For years we kept just a basic table/chair/umbrella set there. (Very similar to this one.) Well, this summer when we did go out front to sit, I […]
