It sounds kind of gross but it really is time for me to get a new waste bin. The poor thing looks like it’s seen better days. I have one big one outside that I fill up and bring down to the curb once a week. Well, actually I have two, one is for trash and the other is for recycling. The two outside are still in decent condition it’s the one I have indoors that needs some work.
I’d like to get the kind that can go under the cabinet. Maybe even something fancy that can roll out. I saw in a magazine the kind that has two waste bins on rollers. If I got something like that I could use one for recycling and the other for the trash. That would make it really easy as I empty the stuff in the the appropriate large bins outside. The thirteen gallon trash bin I have in my kitchen is just soo ugly and grimy looking that I would love to get something hidden away. I guess I’ll be on the lookout for something like this this weekend.
Last night I was watching a do-it-yourself show on the television. The guy on the show was showing you how to make a really neat padded storage ottoman. I love items that you can use to decorate with but also have a purpose like organizing. This ottoman was made with a plastic file crate, plywood, some batting and the fabric of your choice. It looked very easy to put together.
I would love to make a few of these to use in Lady Bug’s room. She can use the extra storage space for some of her board games. Because she is small they could double as seats. I bet she would want to fill them with her toys and call them her treasure boxes.
So the other day when I changed the batteries for the smoke detectors it got me thinking about other thing that contribute to home safety. I founds some very helpful tips online. I’m considering getting a home security system and there are a lot of different choices for monitoring your home and giving you peace of mind with alarm systems.
One company I found has three different pricing options, all of which seem to be pretty affordable ranging from $35.99 to $45.99 a month. These seem pretty reasonable when it comes to the safety of my family. One item that I was particularly fond of in one of the packages was an alarm that sounds when doors or windows are opened that are protected. I know this would put my mind at ease if all I had to do would be listen for an intruder alarm.
No matter what system I might choose to get, my family’s safety is my number one priority. I just want to make sure my daughter and I are both safe and secure.
Buying a house seemed like a daunting task. I worked really hard to find the best rates and looked at a few places to get ideas about what was going on in the market at the time. I was very pleased with the outcome of my mortgage rates and even happier with the house that I was able to purchase.
I’ve been working on paying off my mortgage for awhile now and am trying to make sure that I can get some decent refinance rates. I’m hoping to lower my monthly payments so that I can pay for a few other expenses during the month, especially those pertaining to my daughter. Lady Bug has expressed interest in playing some team sports and I know those leagues aren’t free to join.
The FHA refinance rates are a lot better than I had hoped. If I’m approved for the new loan, I think I will save a few thousand dollars and pay off my credit cards. I really hate being in debt. I’m just happy that most of all my debt is because I’m a home owner, and not because I went and had a shopping spree on things like expensive shoes.
I guess I never realized just how many different sizes of machinery parts a person or business might need until Bobby showed me the huge selection of items that he often buys from the reid supply website when he needs something that he can’t find locally. The sheer size of the inventory, from the standpoint of having to create and maintain the website is mind-boggling to me!
