How to Survive a Home Renovation on a Small Budget

Home renovation is something that all of us need to go through at some point in our lives. Keeping in mind that it’s not something that most of us have experience doing, it’s very easy for us to get distracted, frustrated and for the outcome to be worse than we originally planned for.

Since nobody wants to end up going that path, the operation of home renovation is indeed something that needs to be very well planned ahead. Overcoming financial problems along the way is never a good idea and you should be aware of the expenses associated.

Remotely knowing what you want your house to look like after renovation in most cases won’t be enough. You will need to be as detailed as possible (especially with so many handymen and workers around the house that don’t share the same vision or level of creativity as you do).

But, before everything, you will need to take care of…

Where Will You Stay During the Renovation?
Yes, one thing that most of us doesn’t take into account until the actual renovation starts is where your family will be during the process.

Depending on whether you’re going to take an active role in the renovation or you just intend to leave the keys to the person responsible to finish the job while you’re traveling with your kids, we can talk about a diametrically different approach to this matter.

No matter what solution you choose, bear in mind that you need to give your best to keep the stress levels of you and your family as low as possible, as renovating the house can be really stressful and it often lasts more than you originally planned.

Save Where You Can
Rearranging things around the house can be devastating to your budget. Even if you think you got it all under control, you can still easily get carried away with so many people involved and so many situations popping up along.

However, if there is a right time to do something then renovating your home is definitely the right time to get rid of all the unnecessary stuff you kept in your house until now.

Organizing a garage sale or simply putting your products online can both free up some living space and earn you a dollar that you can reinvest in your new/old home.

Do It Yourself, But Don’t Overdo It
Now is not the time to act like a know-it-all. If you have a God-given gift that you can use to handle some activities around renovation (refurbishing the old furniture or gluing tiles in the bathroom) then you should definitely do it yourself if you’re confident of your skills.

However, lots of people tend to overdo things and they think that they can do something when they actually can’t. Keep in mind that overdoing things will not only eat up your time and nerves, but it will also cost you extra as you’d definitely need to hire a gun to fix what you did afterward.

Be considerate and realistic about what your capabilities truly are. Pay money to the people who know their job to do the rest.

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
