My freakin Pinterest bedroom


Yup. Finally followed through on some design ideas I got on Pinterest. ”This is one half of my bedroom and I must say I’m quite impressed with myself. No I’m not a narcissist lol.

Comforter set: Homegoods, $60 bucks

Headboard: Wayfair, $107 bucks

Wall prints(made from fabric: Goodwill $4 bucks for ALL!

Curtains: $7 a panel, Boscovs.

I’m sooo happy!!!

I don’t it over the course of 3 paychecks but I still made it happen and so can you.

My theory is that you can’t deplete yourself doing it or it’s no fun. There are so many ways to be smart about decorating.

Good luck!!!

A perfect hygge Sunday morning


It’s the little things….

A perfect cup of coffee

Your favorite candle burning

The smell of bacon cooking

Rain hitting the windows

And your kids sleeping safe in their beds….

Out of the Blue


I haven’t posted in ions. My life has taken a different path once again. A good positive path.

I went in halves on a house with my ex-husband. The house is for my boys and I. I guess I can say it is definitely my dream home with a lot of work ahead of me but so worth it.

From time to time I am going post before and after pics of the reno.

 

The picture with the fake red brick was the kitchen before it was totally gutted. The cabinet doors are what my son and I stained to a darker color. No more drop ceiling yay! All these are basically of the kitchen. More to come!

Self Sabotage, No Money but Wants Mo Money..it can be done


I feel like my wheels are always spinning.  I seem to never get out of this vicious cycle of feeling poor. I am always asking myself, where in the world does my money go? Out the window that’s where. I spend it foolishly on nonsense and that’s about to end! 

So I found this free budget app called Daily Budget.  (No this isn’t an advertisement for them). It has a little piggy bank  as its icon and I found it very simple to use.

First though I have a planner that I buy from Walmart every year to keep my appointments, subbing jobs, and ahh yes of course my bills in.  The planner cost $8 (if that)and without it I’d be lost.  It doesn’t have any bells or whistles. It’s just easy to follow because it has a month at a view glance which is great because you can see everything coming up right in front of you.

I love the idea of putting stickers in here or using bright colored markers but in reality I don’t have the time right now. That’s all a part of my bigger picture and my time management adventure that I’ll be tackling soon.

Sorry to cut this post short so for now I’m going to leave you with this but at the end of the week I’ll update you on my budgeting progress!!
