    Camping Checklist

    All You Need: Camping Checklist Camping is our number one summer to-do every year. And while camping can be an absolute blast, the packing portion of it can be quite a hassle (and time-consuming!) But, after trying to remember all the necessities year after year, I have developed this very extensive camping checklist that I use for every trip. This camping checklist is ideal for the family that is camping in the RV. I also find it easier to keep certain items in our camper all year long instead of taking things from our home. This saves me on packing…

    RV Reno – Painting

    Painting a RV Class C Motorhome Camping is one of our favorite summertime traditions. It is something that we both did with our families when we were growing up, and have continued since being married. Our camping experience has been in a tent, pop-up camper, a 1970’s camper, 5th wheel camper, and most recently a hybrid camper with a slide-out.  But last summer (Summer 2020) we decided to venture into the world of motorhomes. But after the first camping trip, we realized we needed to give our new (to us!) RV a little TLC. We had a leaking roof that…

    5 Budget-Friendly Ways for a Cozy Bedroom

    Warm and Cozy Bedroom Ideas What makes a bedroom cozy to you? Is it the color scheme? Or the bedding and pillows? Or maybe it is the rug? Everyone has a different idea of what makes a bedroom cozy to them. I want to share my top five budget-friendly ways to make a cozy bedroom.

    Organizing Kids Crafts in a Small Cabinet

    How to Organize Craft Supplies in a Small Space Organizing kids crafts and games was my initial goal for this project. The goal quickly changed to figure out a way to organize the kid’s crafts and games that they would actually be able to keep “clean”. Is this an easy or realistic goal? To be honest, probably not! Let’s face it, I may just be going through the cabinet again in a few months pulling out the half colored pages and throwing them out. All of this done, of course when they are not around (so they don’t actually realize…

    How to Make a Fresh Garland in 5 Easy Steps A fresh evergreen Christmas garland is one of the easiest ways (In my opinion!!) to bring a fun Christmas cheer into your home on a budget. I love how the garland smells, and since garlands can be pretty spendy, it is quite satisfying to get a great looking garland for next to nothing! Cut Evergreen Branches First step is to go and cut the branches. The types of evergreen branches that seem to work the best are the soft pine and cedar branches. You can also add any faux stems…
