Domestic Diva: Takes on the Dining room

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

I have to say I usually put flowers on the table. I recently had to do a photography assignment using cool colors. I came up with the idea to use a vase with beads in it. Then I places a bracelet on the base of the vase. I believe I paid $.50 for the vase. The bracelet was from a company called inpink. I just love them! Then one set of beads is from my daughters collection. The shell necklace was from goodwill and the other necklace was one I made. I though it looked pretty neat. It is also a ...

The Beauty of Tantrums

A week or so back I saw one of my new-mother friends having a really rough time. She was a first time mom, nervous to be alone with new baby (then again aren’t we all?), scared to go anywhere with new baby, but most of all….new baby would not go to sleep. She was living on a couple hours of sleep daily, as her beautiful new baby would not calm down enough to sleep more than a couple hours at a time. As much as I hurt for her I realized….she is not the only woman out there who wants to pull ...

How to Care for Pets on a Budget

Before I begin I should preface my life. I share my 2 bedroom apartment with 5 animals. I have 3 cats, 1 dog, and 1 rabbit. I also don't have alot of money left over each month after bills are paid so I have to stretch my dollars to the max to care for my animal family.

You could go through the coupons in the Sunday paper, or to save me money from buying the paper I typically get coupons in my mailbox once a week and I go ...

Water, Water Everywhere!

I don't know about you but as the temperatures rise, our family goes through a lot of water. I was talking to a friend the other day and she commented how expensive it has become to buy multipacks of water for her family. It dawned on me there had to be a less expensive way to stay hydrated.  I suggested refilling reusable water bottles from a water cooler loaded with a five gallon bottle. After doing some math (which is not a strength of mine), I discovered I was wrong.  Here's what I ...

Couponing for the Extremely Normal: I Won’t Pay Full Price

Welcome to Couponing for the Extremely Normal! My daughter decided she wants to play lacrosse this year.  Fortunately, her school received a grant and those players without sticks and goggles were given loaners for the season.  The only problem is she can't carry the lacrosse stick on the bus unless it's in a case.  I priced out carrying cases on the internet and learned it was going to cost about $30 to buy a new one.  Now lacrosse is something she is just trying out and I'm not going to spend ...
