I'm such a visual person. I love looking at Pinterest or back in the golden ages magazines & decorating books. I also used to watch HGTV but haven't really in a year or so. I found so many neat ideas and inspiration from Pinterest. Here are some things I've done.
I made a mason jar soap pump and made homemade hand soap to go in it. I love how the hand soap smells. Also it was $5 for one gallon of it, not too shabby!
One of my very favorite things of Pinterest is ideas on how to use ordinary things around your house for another purpose. I use a Parmesan cheese container for Reid's crayons. I can throw them in our bag and don't have to worry about them falling out of their box or melting on something important. I also re-use my Clorox wipe containers to hold trash bags in the car. One container holds about 10. I also keep one upstairs for emptying trash cans up there. On Pinterest they have theirs covered with cute scrap book paper. I also save old jars to organize baking goods, spices, etc. You can posts about organizing my pantry here & here.
Also in efforts to save more money grocery shopping I read all about price matching at Wal-Mart through a link on Pinterest. If you know me at all you know I go in Wal-Mart maybe twice a year. I just don't enjoy shopping there. However, I tried this last time I shopped. It was easy and gave me big savings.
Also I see other ideas to inspire decorating touches around the house. I pinned the pic on the left forever ago. When my sister and I were putting my kitchen back together we both had the same thought to spruce up my chalkboard. It did have a brown frame. I painted it green and we added the wreath and cute ribbon to it.
And lastly check out how this pic (which she tore out of a magazine years ago) inspired her dining room redo!!
