Re-decorating on a Budget

Most of us know that we have to keep an eye on how much money we spend on decorating or better said redecorating. And so, with the help of my trusty companion the internet to direct me in the right direction or soooo I hope???

Well, there I landed on a Website that really caught my eye. They used this sticky plastic stuff and transformed their kitchen in a jiffy, and it didn’t look too bad either…. Though when I went to my local DIY to check-out that product, it wasn’t as cheap as they mentioned on the internet. I guess that has to do location???

Then I wandered over to the paint section (This idea stems from online, too) The wonders of modern technology are amazing, but at the same time how much is true??? Anyway, there was this idea of using the color of “gray” throughout the house to reduce the need to clean so often…,. No comment from my side here!!!

Colors may hide the fact that I haven’t dusted in a week or so but the thought of it and the possibility that someone my stop by wearing white gloves and doing a “white glove test” on my furniture just is toooooo much for me!!

Image someone like that stops by your place and you aren’t prepared for the “white glove test” then what …. You got it!!! Posted immediately online and everyone in your neighborhood knows that you don’t dust regularly… That’s a OMG moment … to say the least and your reputation is ruined!!!
In that case then no gray tones in my house so as to hide the dust. NO THANK YOU!!!

But what I am not too sure about is using that sticky plastic stuff behind my stove top or sink… I cannot image that it would adhere to the wall that long, but than no one asked me.
I need to look more before I start to re-decorate… Another tip (hack) was vintage or like it used to be called “used furniture” or “antiques” …. All the same stuff at the end of the day. Only the price plays a role and what are you looking for.

Vintage furniture sounds like it could be somewhat special with a bit of a flare from when it was “in” back then when I was a kid or “antique” sound like it is something really expensive and really has that style that could be emulated in a country home.

This whole idea seems to be getting out of hand here with re-decorating and the more I look around the more I am happy with what I have. So, I can stick to my budget too.

Enjoy what you have and if you are re-decorating… Enjoy!

Endless Advice – 1

It is amazing that where ever you turn or whatever website you visit, i.e. newspaper or the such there are always tips and advice on relationships. How did we manage before the days of the internet???

No internet was there when I started dating to give me all the unnecessary advice to make me worry about if I am doing the right thing or not.

No we had our friends and that was it and amazingly we managed!!! What a surprise…. Or??
We survived our dates we had our sorrows and ups and downs but we just kept on with it and didn’t need a website to tell me which food to eat if my date went bad…. What should one eat I ask???? Chocolate, pizza and other junk food or be levelheaded and eat healthy food such as a salad….. Good question???

Then there’s the worst place to find a guy or gal….. That could be anywhere or is there a guarantee when you meet a person at a certain place that everything will be hunky-dory and if you meet that person in say a DIY store then well … you can write it off!! These problems that one must face to meet someone is burdening….

Or “why are you still single?” – That is a tricky question if you ask me, because there could be many factors involved here. Firstly, is the person really looking for someone and secondly, does that dream guy or gal actually exist??? A good thought. So naturally.. No scientist needed here; the person won’t meet anyone anyways and can say to everyone “No one is interested in me.” Bad luck on your part!

But a real winner is – How to get ready for a relationship. Everyone please tell me how this works… Thank you!!!

Now that I am ready for a relationship… Thank goodness, I was worried there for a moment! And I have a date now… what a relief

I have to worry about how to impress the person…. Pure stress and just the things I have to consider before the date here worries me. If I was single again and had to think about all this stuff I would give myself a heart attack!!

But there is the stuff you shouldn’t do on a first date. I guess that’s like you shouldn’t wear dirty clothes or maybe don’t pick your nose and hopefully go to a nice place and not some burger joint, though being on time could be important too… don’t you think so???

I think this is enough relationship and dating stuff for today, because this whole thing is just too much for me and will write more about it at another time. So for all you out there looking or dating remember don’t forget to follow all the tips and advice out there, otherwise your date may not go off as planned.
Enjoy dating!!
