Guest Post: My So-Called Home

Hey Liz, thanks for letting me share my little project with you and your readers. On a recent trip to my favorite thrift store Unique (on route 22 in Watchung, NJ) I picked up a sweet little table for only 2 bucks, thanks to a 50% off President's Day sale. I knew right away that I wanted to use it as my printer table and that I wanted to go for a two-tone look.

It went from this:

To this:

And the best part is that the whole project cost me less than ten bucks for a completely customized and functional printer table.

Head on over to My So-Called Home for even more details and all the behind-the-scenes goodies.

Thanks again!

Where the Savings Magic Happens

One thing I've learned from several sources, is that a FREE way to enhance your life is to keep things clean and organized.  This is especially true of your work space because a clean and organized work space will help you be more focused and constructive.  So, I thought I'd share one of my workspaces with you and the before and afters of the process.

This is where I coupon and blog.

It gets worse.

After spending quite a lot of time sorting, trashing, and putting it all back together (in between all of the day's regular activities), here is the result:

Ahhhhhh, much better.

My other workspaces are my kitchen and my sewing area.  Since my sewing machine is currently out of commission, that area is pretty neat and tidy.  My kitchen, however, has a pantry that is begging for attention. Maybe that will be the next project I post.  

Share your before and afters!  E-mail me at frugalistafind @ gmail with photos and description and I'll make a guest post from it!

Free Valspar Paint Sample

Available at 10:00 am EST every day for the next couple of months.  Only one per household.

Here's some incentive to get that painting project done!  I ordered one of these samples to test a color for the new baby's room, and it came with a mini roller, mini paint tray and $5 coupon.  YAY!  It's plenty of paint for crafting if you're not interested in testing out paint for a room.

Crock Pot for only $14.50

I love finding a hot deal on something I've been looking for like this crock pot!  I have a large crock pot that I used quite a lot, but the handle on one side broke, so it is no longer convenient for taking to church pot lucks or parties. 
Crock-Pot SCR300SS 3-Quart Round Manual Slow Cooker, Stainless Steel

This Stainless Steel 3-Quart Round Slow Cooker is just the right size for a single batch of stew or soup (I often double the recipe in my large crock pot) or for dips.  AND, if you're and Amazon Mom or Amazon Prime member, 2 day shipping is free.  I used a gift certificate I bought from Living Social ($10 for $20 gift certificate) so that made it very Frugalista Find.

Hot deal on SLR Camera + free camera bag and free shipping

If you've been waiting on the right deal to get your SLR, this might meet your needs.  Great reviews!
