Patio Chair – “Trash to Treasure” DIY Transformation

Do you ever pass furniture and random items that people have put out at the curb for trash pickup? Well, I recommend taking a closer look when that happens and you might find your next cheap and easy project! I’ve started doing this in the last few months and have picked up a coffee table (which just needed some screws tightened to make it like new again), a small desk (which I up-cycled into an entryway bench and garden supply…

Save on all your online shopping with this one simple tip

I was just recently reminded about a free way to easily get cash back on online purchases.

Get Scholastic Books for Free

Spend nothing and bring home (nearly) all of the Scholastic books that your kid wants

Is your kid like mine? When it’s Scholastic books time, she wants all the books! She comes home from school with the Scholastic book order forms, grabs a pen, and starts circling. The next thing I know, I am being handed order forms that look like poorly written papers graded by a strict teacher – covered in markings with upwards of 30 books that my kid wants me to buy.
