Ways To Save Money, Honey!

Happy Monday, Hope you're having a great day! Mine has been, eh, okay. Just not feeling the best today. Anyhow, I have been trying to save money in many different ways and here are some I thought I could share. Maybe some of them will help you too.


-Make my own laundry detergent
-Make my own shampoo - it works great!
-Use a refillable foaming soap dispenser in the kitchen - buy dish detergent in bulk and refill adding water to prolong soap usage!
-Cut down on paper towel usage! Majorly.
-Reuse bags for grocery shopping
-Make my own spray deodorizer
-Make my own dryer sheets
-Make my own cleaners for the house - bathroom, furniture polish, window cleaner, etc.
-Cut my husband's hair
-Trim my kids' hair to extend hair cuts
-Coupons of course

More Mason Jars - Project To Come!

How's your week going? I'm hanging out, listening to music and multi-tasking tonight. Had a great day though. Great work out, great book study group, cooked a decent dinner. Overall I can't complain! Win/Win!
While I was cooking dinner tonight I started a little project that has been weighing me down for a while involving more mason jars. I'm so excited about it but have to get a few more jars and finish it before I can show you. It's seriously nothing BIG but it's the little things that make me happy.
Hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow! TGI ALMOST F!
Over and Out!

Happy Tuesday!

Halloweeny Flags!

How are you? Happy Monday! Hopefully not a mundane one for you! I've been playing catch up with the house and just thought I'd share a little festive decor from the front yard. 

This is a garden flag I found at a local store and I thought it was cute. 

Here's the house flag I put up for the month. The kids love it!

Do you decorate your yard for Halloween? What all do you do? Hope you have a great day!

Beachy House Decor

I love, love, love beachy decorated homes. Decorating with bright and airy colors sets such a calming and fresh tone for relaxation! Last week we went on a wonderful family vacation to Charleston, SC and I took a couple of pictures of some of the house d├ęcor I liked. I must sound cheesy! Since my house isn't decorated in a coastal theme, I just took it all in and enjoyed the scenery! Ah! Didn't want to come home and I'm feeling a little hung over from all the playing we did on the trip.
Here is one wall hanging I liked in the beach cottage we stayed in.  
Loved the colors in the house. It was so cool and fresh looking.
I'm also posting because my sister-in-law loved the color too! Maybe it will inspire her. :)

I love the different textures of articles placed together on side tables.  
 A little color in Charleston.
On that note, have a happy Friday tomorrow!

Clean Your Shower With V05

Yay, I'm finally able to hop back on here for a few. How has everybody been doing? Things have seriously been a little nutsy around here. I had a nasty vomiting experience last weekend which took everything out of me for part of the week(ugghh!) but I think I am ALL GOOD for the moment(fingers crossed).

I'm excited to share something my husband accidentally found due to his complete clutsiness. I can't talk because I have clutsy tendencies too but from his last one we actually learned something! Don't worry, he knows I'm talking about him here. Chuckles!

So he took a shower one night after a bike ride and accidentally knocked over an entire bottle of my shampoo. I didn't find it until the next morning and check out BELOW how it cleaned a giant spot in our shower. Please be gentile and don't judge our cleaning abilities on the filth of our shower. Yes, it gets dirty. I am working on it to clean it every. single. week. now!

I've mustered up the courage to show you our nasty builder grade shower that I didn't have nice and clean and in tip top condition. Bleh! It really smacks you in the face when you see it in a picture. GROSS!

Let me direct you to the center of the picture where the V05 spilled and poured down the drain! See how clean it came!

Below is a picture of the shower cleaned with v05 shampoo! I used a sponge and a little elbow grease!

 So v05 is an uber cheap way to clean your shower. Yes, I use cheap shampoo. So sue me!

Needless to say my hub's clutsiness came in handy for once! Gotta love him! HAHA Happy Friday to you!
