My husband’s favorite coffee cup reads, “I’ll start work when my coffee does.” It drives home the motto that coffee is often the morning lifeblood getting things done around here. I love having a cute little bar area with everything in one place. Make one yourself and get your coffee maker sparkling clean at the same time!

You may be surprised to find that many homes, like mine, don’t have overhead lights in all the rooms. We are on a mission to wire and install 4 new lights in the house but keep our energy costs very low. You won’t believe how crazy the lighting was in my work-space but now it’s light and bright!
You ever notice how one project just seems to lead to another on the ‘ol list? When we had our solid hardwood floors installed, I was shocked at the price to replace the balusters, railings, and steps. But 2 $25 quarts of paint and some elbow grease made a huge difference.

There’s even a handy printable kitchen deep cleaning list to break it up into mini-projects if you wish.
