Since starting my Spending Fast a little over three months ago, I have learned quite a bit more about myself than expected. One of the main things is that I have a lot of marketable talent that I completely didn’t realize. Last Monday I started a new job (hallelujah) and my title went from “Clerk” to “Information Technology Specialist.” I tell you this because my college degree is in Spanish. I have no formal training in computers, I just happen to enjoy working with computers. I realized this a few months ago and added my skills to my resume. After meeting a new friend, I mentioned to her that I was good with technology and she told her boss; the rest is history.

When my husband and I bought a spec home, he saw a bigger garage and more room to play…I saw a blank canvas. I immediately fell deeply in love with the wood work and details, but I knew in my decorating heart of hearts that this little room for my son really needed a something to take it to the next level. And that something, my friends, is the best secret (or not secret) in all interior design…Paint DIY! Can I just tell you…a fresh can of quality paint is under $30.00! That is sooooo affordable on any budget, including a tiny budget like mine. But here’s the thing about paint: it has a few tricks up its sleeve. Don’t think you can just throw it up on the wall and call it fabulous. No there are indeed some important tips and tricks you should know when attempting a full room facelift on a $30.00 budget!

Okay, so Spring Cleaning isn’t exactly a party. But if you’re anything like me, it’s usually still a big to-do. Lately I’ve been inspired to be more environmentally responsible in my cleaning, and it’s usually the case that the natural, green, safe products with the pretty packaging are far more expensive than the hardcore off-brand Clorox made of god-knows-what. And part of what you’re paying for is that pretty packaging. (An exception: Target often has great in-store sale prices on J.R. Watkins stuff, which I love.) So I was delighted to find a slew of recipes online for DIY cheap green cleaning, made from easy-to-find (you-probably-already-have), inexpensive ingredients.
