Reimagine That!

It all started several years ago with a hutch. I wanted one; specifically, large and solid wood. I checked every retailer I could think of. Not only were they out of my budget, but I didn’t really love any of them. Most were not well made, not the right color or the wrong style. We’re an average family with an average income and common sense. I wasn’t about to overspend on something that wasn’t even perfect. I look at a $4,000 hutch and all I see is braces, groceries, and school clothes, you know?

Cash in the Closet

We’ve all done it. We’ve flipped through our closets only to find clothes we don’t love as much as we did in the dressing room. To make matters worse, there’s a tag dangling from some items.

Cause for Alarm

Does your family have an escape plan in case of fire? You should. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fires and burns are the third leading cause of fatal home injury.
