1. DIY Candy Jars. Do you have a small side table,
or the corner of a buffet table you are looking to decorate? How
about these DIY Candy Jars. We found three separate candle holders
we had around the house. one was wood, and the other two were both
different colors. We unified them with a can of glossy black spray
paint (we were decorating for Halloween, but you could use any
color). We then cleaned out an old pickle jar, pasta sauce jar
and mason jar in our fridge and painted their lids black. We
attached them to the bases with Gorilla Glue and added candy.
Are you still waking up to frost? Or even worse, snow? Do you
believe that the rumors of spring have been greatly exaggerated?
While spring may not have arrived to your region yet, it is still
possible to start your garden now.
Why would you consider starting a garden when you are still wearing
long johns? First, you can't get any more local than your backyard.
Second, you have complete control over how your produce is grown,
so you know exactly what was used on your fruits and vegetables.
Finally, eating homegrown produce is a great way to save on your

Egads, the Holidays are fast approaching! Whether you're a professional in the kitchen or just dabble at a few recipes this Holiday season, we can all use some great kitchen tools to get us through it all! So I posed the question to the DealPros: "What is your favorite kitchen tool to get you through the Holidays?"....and here's what they had to say:
The only new piece of furniture I own in my house is my mattress.
Everything else is a hand-me-down. Not only have I furnished my
entire house for less than $1,000, I'm saving the environment by
reclaiming furniture that would have otherwise ended up in the
trash. To make everything match and look nice, I have repurposed
many of the pieces. I'm no handyman, but there are several ways you
can repurpose furniture with little experience and
without spending a ton of money.
A fresh coat of paint gives life to an old piece of wood furniture.
You can paint the furniture to match the original wood or in any
color you like, (I have a blue desk.) The major hardware chains
sell samples of low-VOC paint for about $3.50 and its enough paint
to finish most jobs.
I have four children under five--my house is a virtual
daycare! While we by no means have it all together, these
products have really helped bring some sanity to our lives.
If you have a houseful, I'd love to hear about products that you
have used with your kids to help keep some semblance of order.

When we moved into our little house 2 1/2 years ago, I thought it was my dream house. We worked hard before we moved. We avoided paying rent by living in a camper for 9 months (even through part of a South Dakota winter!) in order to save up money and pay off bills so we would qualify for a mortgage.
We found the little house nestled on 10 acres of prairie land and declared it perfect, blindly ignoring that fact that it was a foreclosure and may have unforeseen problems. We got a great deal and we were in good shape to buy the house. We moved in in the middle of winter and looked forward to the spring and getting our home all set up.
The inside of the house was a mess. The doors and light fixtures were about 40 years old, maybe older. The paint was an extremely high gloss that we discovered was not at all easy to cover up, even with four coats of very good paint. The bathrooms were small and had cheap fixtures and the outlet sockets were so old that you could plug something in, only to watch it fall right back out.
