Frugal Decor Tip - Recover Upcycle A Table

My card table gets used a lot and had some tears in it. So as I was redoing my kitchen drawers and shelves with contact paper the idea came to me to recover the table! Easy and was only $2.00! Frugal upcycle of a card table that I was thinking of throwing out! The 2nd piece took longer to put on because I had to match the flowers up. But, I think I did it pretty good!

Smart Renovations that Transform Homes

Create a personal space that fits your personality by investing in key upgrades. There are several changes you can make to the home that will personalize the space, ensure that it suits your needs, and possibly even boost the property value. If you’re ready to make an investment in your home, then consider these smart changes.

Custom Closets
Storage space is more important now than ever before, and savvy buyers are looking for closet space. If you have an older home with cramped closets, then it’s time for a change. Even if the closets are tiny, you can still turn them into sharp storage space with custom inserts that make better use of the cubic feet. You’ll love the look, and you’ll open more space throughout the home by getting things into storage where they belong.

Clever Kitchen Accessories
If you love to bake, then you might like a pop-up shelf that can take your stand mixer from counter-height back to a handy storage area. Kitchen islands with built-in wine racks are also popular, or you may want a built-in desk where you can sit down to do the bills. Open shelves and glass front cabinets are also in demand, and you can use these spaces to showcase your favorite things.

The Attic Bedroom
If you have an attic with plenty of overhead space, then consider turning it into a living area. Attic renovations are great because they expand the living space without expanding the footprint of the house. Use the attic as your personal office, home theater, or even a soothing library.

Bring in the Light
If you have a room that feels dark, then consider enlarging the windows to bring in more light. French doors that open up to the patio will make the room feel larger while boosting the value of your home. When the space feels brighter and more welcoming, you’ll find that it’s more enjoyable to spend some time there in the evenings.

Any of these improvements can make your home more functional and enjoyable, and a professional team can assist you with the entire process. Get details now so that you can learn more about your options and make a fully informed decision regarding your next renovation.

Fun DIY Skirt!

I'll begin by saying that I suck at sewing. I don't do it often and when I do, I generally do a rushed job of hand sewing. Sewing machines are just.. complicated. Too complicated for me anyway. Recently, however, my mom decided to begin teaching me how to use one of those complicated machines. I didn't do any of the sewing this time around, but I did watch as she showed me what to do, told me about the different parts of the machine, and about different stitch patterns. She said that making a skirt is an easy way to begin learning to sew so that's what we did with the shirt featured above. She simply cut the top off of the shirt, hemmed the top edge of what would eventually be the skirt on the right, leaving an opening, and then worked elastic all the way through! It's cute and comfy! And, it was relatively easy to make! And no worries about hemming the bottom edge because it was already hemmed for us! :p

A Bit Dressed Up ~

I have an eye dr appointment today and want to dress up a bit. Which to me is wearing a button up shirt. I really like to be comfortable and the crop jeans have some stretch to them and so does the top. The top was $1.00 at my favorite thrift store and the cropped jeans were from Ebay for about $6.00. So far , I have spent very little on my Spring / Summer wardrobe. I have been pretty lucky at finding what I want for very little money. I love saving money and being frugal is fun.

I have had this purse for a couple of years now. I love it. It is my favorite purse of all time. Perfect size and look. I paid $3.00 for it at a local thrift store. I have gotten my money's worth out of it.

Ready For Summer

I am loving the hint of summer that we are having today! Warm enough for me to wear a cute outfit. When I go out later to the park I will throw a denim jacket on. I am wearing an outfit that I got the last time that I went to my favorite consignment shop. $1.00 for the top and $1.00 for the cropped pants. The Cute White Sandals I actually got off of ebay.They were about $10.00, But, I had gotten some money put in my paypal account for a review I had done. So they were pretty much free!

Homemade Yoga Skirt

I love yoga skirts and cannot get enough of them. I had this short "dress" that I had wrote about a while ago of me wearing it with leggings. Well, I was grabbing it out of the dryer yesterday and when I was holding it up to fold it , I noticed that IF I was to cut it under the armpits , it would be a perfect length yoga skirt. So , I got out the scissors, and cut it across just under the armpits. Now I have a perfect yoga skirt that has a cute print to it.

         No need to do any sewing or anything. Just cut it across. Let it bunch down on its own.

I really like the skirt a lot better than when it was a long "dress" top. More comfortable and I can wear it with a lot more things.

Shrink Your Grocery Bill

If you don't live under a rock , then you have probably noticed how expensive the groceries are getting. Things I usually buy are sky rocketing. It is 2 times and sometimes 3 times more each week for my grocery budget. That is just for the basics that I buy. Using my food storage as a base , I still have a sky high bill.

These tips can help shrink your grocery bill. Every little bit helps.

Use a list and stick to it. I have gotten really good at planning out my meals for the week and sticking to a list. This has saved a lot.

NEVER shop for groceries on an empty stomach. Shopping hungry makes for a lot of impulse buying. Which adds a lot to the bill.

Leave everyone home when you go to the grocery store. You will be able to focus more on finding bargains and using coupons etc.

When you see something on sale that your family uses a lot of , buy as much as you can. Adds to your food storage and saves money in the long run. You will have it on hand and not have to buy it when the price goes back up to the higher price.

Buy store brand as often as possible. This has saved our family a lot.

Check the store ads each week and use your store savings card. You can save a lot doing this. Also use coupons as much as possible. I don';t rely on them because they are usually for items that are higher priced even with the coupon, but sometimes I have coupons for free items that save money for us.

Yoga Skirts - Comfy Style

Not sure why, but lately , I have become obsessed with yoga skirts. They are so comfortable. I already had one black one that I wear all of the time. I went to a thrift store the other day and found 3 more - I used my $10.00 bonus card so all 3 of them cost me about $2.00! I found a Free Sewing Pattern so that I can make some more whenever I find some t-shirt knit fabric. I have some dark purple that I plan on using now. These will be great for this summer when it gets hot!

                                          (disclaimer - I have never or plan on ever doing yoga!)

DIY Reading Nook

If you are like me, you love burying your face in a good book! And, a comfy reading place makes for an even more enjoyable reading experience! Enter: the reading nook. Online, there are countless inspirations to be found for reading nooks, from transformed closets to window seats. I happened upon one pictured in a child's room; complete with a canopy and star shaped twinkle lights. So, I decided to make my own (pictured below). 

What You Need:

-a canopy(purchased at Salvation Army for less than $5)
-a screw-hangin- hook to hang from ceiling
-twinkle lights 
-plenty of comfy pillows (I purchased 3 pillows and a nice velvet throw from Goodwill for less than $10)
-comfy faux fur blanket(xmas gift from my grandma)
-other blankets for cozying up with
-nearby bookshelf.. FULL OF BOOKS!

I chose to situate my canopied reading nook in front of a window so that I would have the light of day for light during the daytime.  Using the ceiling hook, I hooked the canopy up to the ceiling and plugged the twinkle lights into a nearby plug in, bringing the lights up the wall with tacks and, finally, draping them from the hook so that the lights would be on both sides of the canopy.  Then, I laid the faux fur blanket down on the floor, piled up all sorts of pillows, and now I have a comfy place to enjoy a good read! I also can't get enough of the romantic bohemian feel! Love it! And, my dog loves it, too! I often find him snuggled up on the pillows. <3

DIY Legwarmers & Hat

Do you have a sweater that you love , but just don't wear anymore? Either too small or whatever. Take it and make some quick legwarmers. No-Sew! Really easy and then if you sew , take it and use another stocking cap as a pattern to make a matching cap. Keep warm and not cost any money!!

                     Lay the sweater out flat and cut the arms off straight across from the armpit.

                                                           Wear them to keep warm!

Take another stocking cap and lay it on the sweater towards the bottom to make your self a cap. This one I left a lot of the bottom so that I could fold it up.

                    Easy winter items and they cost me nothing , but about 10 minutes of time!!
