You know how great inventions seem so simple once someone has invented it? Here is a perfect example: Most modern homes, or renovated older ones, end up with recessed can lighting all over the place. It's cheap, it does the job and it's inoffensive. But it also has no style and looks like you cheaped out on the decor, or couldn't make a decision.

Tuesday kicked off the Savings Pledge and I'm genuinely very
excited about this. I don't know about all of you, but for me, I
