Our goal is to be as debt free as possible at the end of 2016 and to do that we needed a plan. After much research, we decided to use the Dave Ramsey snowball method.

His first step is to secure at least a $1,000.00 emergency fund. We did that by reducing our food budget for the … [Read more...]

Quik Shade Instant Canopy

Disclosure: The Quik Shade Instant Canopy pictured below was provided compliments of Quik Shade. Our Shadepro Vista Awning Shade (more about that here) does a very good job shading our outside area, however it can only provide shade where our awning is and the design of our awning sucks big time. Keystone totally dropped the ball on this one. Our outdoor compartment, where the TV and all our entertainment is, is not covered by our awning at all. Because of this, we are not able to really use our outside area during certain points of the day- enter Quik Shade.Quik Shade Instant Canopies offer a wide … [Read more...]

Disclosure: Drainwig was sent free of charge in exchange for an honest review. About a month ago I received the Drainwig to review.  I was super exited to try this because I lose a lot of hair while showering.  The Drainwig claims that it will prevent clogged shower drains by inserting the snake like ball chain and "whiskers" down through the drain and then leaving the plastic flower cap resting on top of your drain cover.   Drainwig recommends to keep this in your shower/tub for 2-5 months, pull out, toss and replace with a new Drainwig.  The Drainwig comes in a pack of two.As I am inserting the … [Read more...]
