The Super Bowl is right around the corner and it’s time to starting planning the game day party! I am not a fan of football, or sports in general, but I always love a reason to have a party! Here are the food and decorations that I think I will be using this year. All these great ideas have got me really excited and I can’t wait to try them!
One of my favorite things to do is organize. I like to have everything in my house and life organized at all times. I think it helps to get more things done and to be able to find everything that I need. One of my favorite ways to keep my life organized is with printables in my home binder.
This past week I have been working on making new printables for my binder. My old ones were starting to feel a little blah. So I figured it’s new year so I need new printables! I love this new design. Mostly because they are pink, clean and easy to read! Here are the new daily, monthly and a year at a glance printable calendars that I am using.
Recently I have been looking for cute DIY décor for my house and I have seen so many amazing wine bottle projects! So, I decided to make some of my own for my half bath makeover that I am working on this month. The first thing I had to figure out was how to remove the labels from the bottles. I tried a few different methods but this one worked the best and the labels came right off!
I love printables! Using printables and a home binder is a great way to keep everything organized and in one easy to find location. My home binder has to-do lists, cleaning schedules, meal plans, grocery lists, bill payment information, my debt pay off plan, maintenance schedules and so much more! These are a few of the handy printables that I use in my home binder and they have made my life so much easier!
My house goal for January is to do a mini-makeover on my half bath. Since this is the smallest room, and hopefully the easiest room I figured I would just do it and get it over with so I can stop thinking about it all time! I have been avoiding pretty much every room in my house because I can’t decide on paint colors so this is a good place to start.
I have A LOT of plans for my house this year! Most of it is just painting and décor but even doing just that can be expensive and overwhelming. To help keep my sanity, I use a project printable that allows me to list what I want to do and what my budget is.
Do you have a big empty space above your kitchen cabinet and are unsure how to decorate it? I sure did! I spent 2 months looking at the empty space above my kitchen cabinets daily trying to figure out what to do with that space. It’s an awkward little area because if you put smaller stuff up there, no one will be able to see any of it and if you put too much stuff on top then it’s very busy and just doesn’t look right (at least in my opinion is doesn’t). Finally, I just decided to try a few things to see what would work.
I have always bought new shower curtain liners every couple of months when they start to get nasty. There’s nothing else to do about it right? Wrong! They are washable! In the washing machine! I new you could scrub them by hand but who really wants to do that?
I rely heavily on meal planning. If I don’t plan out my meals weekly then I forget to pull forget to pull meat out of the freezer, don’t have the right groceries to make a complete meal and end up eating out way to much (which is really hard on my budget!). Every weekend I sit down and plan out my meals for the week and make a grocery list to avoid eating out or having a frozen pizza 5 days a week.
I have 2.5 bathrooms in my house and I always dread cleaning them but I hate dirty bathrooms even more! So, I thoroughly clean all my bathrooms every Wednesday in under 20 minutes and then just pick up or wipe down surfaces as needed throughout the week. Since I am not a fan of cleaning the bathrooms, I kind of made it a game that I play with myself where I race to get it done as quickly as possible. My best time was 11 minutes but the bathrooms weren’t very dirty that week.
