Trick or Treating

Authored by Leandro Delgado
While we were trick or treating this year through the neighborhood, I noticed how many of our neighbors had security systems installed in their homes, or at least had the sign out in their yard. I was surprised to see how many neighbors had a system installed, because I never thought of our neighborhood as a high crime area, or that anyone would want to come in here and steal from us. We are just your basic, working class neighborhood. I can’t imagine someone wanting to come in and steal what we have. It did get me thinking, though, that maybe the neighbors aren’t as worried about being robbed as they are some other kind of violence. I mentioned it to my husband, and he said that we should look into getting a home security system as well. It seems sort of extravagant to me, but whatever. I am often behind the times, so I wouldn’t be surprised at all if I was behind the times with this as well. It won’t be the first time, or the last time.

An Other day of Window Shopping

With spring coming so quickly to the U.P. of Michigan so incredibly early this year, I have been window shopping via the internet. I found this cool website that I wanted to tell you all about. It is www.become.com I have found so many things that I could use around my house. 
I was checking out indoor hammock chair. I would love an indoor hammock chair for in the boys tiny little bedroom, that way if it were not being used it could be tied to the wall. Tied to the wall it would be up out of the way not taking up precious floor space.

I was also looking at the kohler finial french gold light fixtures. I could not make up my mine as to which one I would like to use in my living room. Oh Yeah and the robert allen lighting torchiere bronze.
I liked also and could decide which one I liked the best. I guess I should really wait until the end of summer when we plan to redo living room and boys rooms to actually choose which one I am going to purchase.

Getting a handle on my daughter's accessories

Guest post written by Em Morgan
I know that it's good for our budget that my daughter mainly gets all of her things from thrift stores because she's a little fashionista. But that doesn't' mean that the sheer size of her collection of clothing and accessories is a problem. That especially goes for her accessories. There are just so many of them and she's really run out of room for all of them. So I told her that we need to figure out some way to organize them during her spring break.
She said that would be fine if that meant that she didn't have to get rid of any of her stuff, but I think I might still make her get rid of the stuff she never wears any more. I looked up some handy accessories organizational tips for my daughter and while I was looking around, I read some debt counseling information and after I did that I decided to try and get some counseling for our family's finances.
I'm buying a few different plastic bins to use to store all of her stuff. I'm also sending her back to her dorm with some of them too so she can keep her stuff there organized.
