SAVE MONEY ~ DIY Cabinet Hardware Install + DIY Cleaning Solution

Image
Cabinet Hardware Install Project
We decided to take on a DIY project by installing our own kitchen cabinet hardware, doorknobs and drawer pulls.Despite some minor setbacks we finished in a few hours and then completed the master and hall bathrooms.
We picked out the hardware color for the kitchen based on our pantry doorknob, which is brushed nickel. This way the whole house has the same color scheme.The cost for all the hardware for the kitchen and two bathrooms was under $90 and the cleaning solution was made with items I already had.The kitchen has 22 doors and 10 drawers. The master bath has four doors and eight drawers and the hall bath has only two doors.The knobs were much easier to install as it only took one hole.
We purchased everything at Lowe’s Home Improvement and bought some handles and knobs in bulk boxes of 10 or 12 and then singles for the extras needed.You save money if there are 18 knobs needed, it is more cost effective to buy one box of 12 and 6 additional, otherwise…

Top 10 Toys ~ No Batteries Needed

Image
Oh, how I love December. We just made it through all 3 of our boys birthdays and Christmas all in the same week. Needless to say my boys receive a lot of gifts in a very short amount of time. One thing that has frequently annoyed my husband and I is how some toys are packaged. There are some that require scissors, muscle strength, laser vision and usually a broken nail or two just to get the darn toys out. After all that you then realize you need batteries, which then turns into needing to find the "small" screwdriver and hoping you have the right size batteries that aren't already dead. By this time the kids have moved on to something else and have lost interest. This year my boys received some very cools toys that did not require any batteries and were conveniently packaged. These toys have also sparked their imagination and creativity which we love. I was so impressed with these toys that I'd like to share our list. Our age range is 1-8 years old so these may not …

Week Day Lunches ~ Easy Burrito Bowls

Image
We are starting the new year off with some mini goals. We are making an effort to not only bring lunches to work but also make them interesting and healthy; no boring sandwiches here. I had some inspiration after watching a video from Tasty on Buzzfeed. They posted a video on how to make chicken burrito bowls and they looked amazing. We modified the recipe to fit what we had on hand and they turned out great. We very easily made 4 pre made lunches for the week that are healthy and delicious. Here is what we did.

Grab a 9x13 inch baking dish 
Place 3 thawed boneless skinless chicken breasts in the center
Slice a red, yellow, and green pepper and red onion
Place the sliced peppers on one side of the chicken and the onions on the other side

Now pour approximately 2 tablespoons of olive oil over everything
sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of taco seasoning over the chicken (both sides)
sprinkle a little salt and pepper to taste
and pour some of your favorite salsa over the chicken



Bake at 400 degrees for abo…

Getting Rid of Clutter

Winter break is both a blessing and a curse. I love having time off of work to spend time with my husband and kids, but December for us is absolutely madness. My husband and I both have company holiday parties, the kids all have school parties and activities, and then to top it off all 3 of my boys have a birthday the week before Christmas. So we throw in a few birthday parties and annual doctor checkups. We also have family stay with us from out of town and then BAM it's Christmas time. Oh and the darn elf.... which. is. not. coming back next year (explanation to come soon). I forgot to add that we live in the midwest where the temperatures were in the negatives all week. It's January now and we have slightly recovered from the madness, we are back to work and school and the weather is still horrible. We know we will be in the house for a long period of time (it usually warms up around Arpil/May timeframe). In the meantime I've had a chance to look around at all of our cl…
