2018_08_05_beach_trip_budget

All right, all right. You might want to think twice before clicking on my budget beach trip music video link (right here.) Yes, please think twice. I’ve gone over the top (call me a dork if you want.) It’s true. Here’s how to take a beach trip on very little money. My husband said we couldn’t do it for under $150. I proved him way wrong!

How to fix basement leaks:

Yes! I fixed my basement leaks for just $8.00 and I had supplies left over. Is it perfect? No. But, in the coming days or weeks, I hope to have things looking real snappy! I’d like to feel good when I step into my basement. Many basements are dark and damp. I would like the opposite. A refreshing feeling is what I’m going for. So, in this video, I show step 2 of my¬†basement remodel.

Life Hacks – It’s Home Repair Time!

I don’t live in a new home, and it’s previously owned. It needs tender loving care since it was built in the early 1900’s. So, I’m giving it some of that tender loving care! I figure, if I give some love, it will give some back. A room in my basement that is separated from the others needs lots of attention. It has water leaks and gaps that spiders can get in. I’m tackling these things first and then moving on from there. My goal is to open my cellar¬†doors without fear of a spider jumping out at me. I want to open the door and feel welcome. I’m not going to hire a contractor since there are other things I wish to spend my hard earned money on. I only plan to spend a few dollars remodeling this disgusting room compared to hundreds if I had hired a professional. This is video #1 in my life hack series! Watch as I share my tips, tricks, and possible bloopers in the weeks to come.
