Time to Redecorate Your Home

I love to decorate, and redecorate as the seasons and holidays come and go.  I have different bedding, curtains, rugs, etc that I use in my home depending on my mood and what is going on.  Even different table cloth and centerpiece that is changed a few times a year.  Not sure why, but it makes me feel good to change things up.  I even like getting new furniture and accent pieces from time to time.

We recently got a new couch and I am waiting for my recliner to finally give out before we replace it.  Mainly because the recliner has special meaning as it was from my husbands Grandma.  But, we love our new couch.  However, with our new living room remodel I was even looking at corner sofa as it would fit good but not until our chair is done for. Wide range of corner sofas is available online and in stores around the world. I have been scoping them out and have a few picked out that might work well for us.   Take a look at a few I have on my list.  I like the chaise lounge on these.  Looks comfy right ??

So, do you like to decorate and redecorate?  I would love to hear your decorating tips, stories, and even see pictures.  If you have ideas to share leave me a comment or visit us on Facebook and share your pictures.  You can find our Facebook and Twitter buttons on the top of the right column.

Quick Tricks For Around The House

  • Grease the “Threads” on glue and nail polish bottles and they wont stick.

  • Ladies, if you use rubber gloves while cleaning. Try placing cotton balls in the finger tips to prevent holes from long fingernails.

  • When you are packing for a move use items from you linen closet; wash clothes, hand & bath towels, etc. to wrap all your dishes. This will eliminate waste of packing materials. Plus, when unpacking you can put away clean dishes and clean linens. Two jobs in one.

  • To fill your home with a pleasant aroma place a few drops of scented oil on a cotton ball and place it inside your vacuum cleaner. As you clean the carpets the air will begin to smell and will last for a long time after wards. Try oil of cinnamon, it will make your home smell like baked apple pie. 

  • Save money on razors. Take a medium mason jar, or any jar with a lid. Fill it with enough mineral oil to cover the head of your razor when you place it in the jar. Keep razor here after rinsing and using it. This will help lengthen the life of you razors.

Finely Crushed Ice Trick

Here is an awesome trick I picked up for making finely crushed ice for daiquiri’s, snow cones, etc.

Save your plastic milk cartons. Thoroughly rinse out carton, fill with water and store in freezer. When ready for finely crushed ice simply remove from freezer, find a solid concrete sidewalk or patio & slam it against the cement on all four sides until it quits going “Crack” & starts to go “Thunk”.

Open top and pour out your crushed ice. If you only need a little, replace cap & return it to the freezer. This is great for when you have unexpected guests or a bunch of kids to entertain. No need to waste money on an ice crusher.

Save Money with Great Dog Food Coupons


Save Money with Great Dog Food Coupons.

Why should humans be the only ones cashing in on great deals?
Our pets deserve the best, and we deserve to save money while giving them the best.

I love my dogs and I give them the best I can, but sometimes I need help in doing so and being able to get valuable coupons on dog food helps me do so.  Dog Food Coupons are not easy to come by these days either.   But, if you sign up for the newsletter at Pedigree you can be in the loop for many valuable coupons when they become available.

My big boy Marshall is my pride and joy.  And my little girl Abby is my cuddle bug.  I am often teased about how I treat them better than my kid.. LOL!  Well maybe I do, but I am all they have.  I believe that when we choose to give a pet a home we need to take care of them like they are our kids.  I would never tie my kid up outside for hours or days, or leave my kid to find their own food or shelter.  So, why do that to a pet.  My dogs are my life.  But, just like when shopping for food for my kid or family I look for coupons and deals to help with the household finances so that is why it is great to find coupons for dog food as well.  Take a look at my babies ~
