Light up your home

One of the things I noticed with my first house-buying experience was ensuring that each room had adequate lighting. That experience was actually when my mother bought a house when we moved from one state to another. She didn’t realize there weren’t any ceiling lights in the bedrooms.

Once I went out on my own that was one of the things I noticed in each place I lived; there is always a need to add the right lightening. Not only to showcase photos or your home, but to be able to accomplish anything – cooking, reading, working – without having to squint.

When it comes to lighting an elegant dining room or a fantastic entry way, chandeliers are the way to go. There are all types to satisfy the style and tastes of every individual from crystal or glass to art deco or rustic. So when you’re decorating your home don’t forget the right lighting, and put your best shine forward.


Selling on eBay

I can not believe it’s almost the end of the year. Before I know it it’ll be time to make another commitment for the new year. This year I’ve been working on organizing and minimizing, and when I started this project I don’t think I realized how much of an ongoing process this would be.

As you recall, in January we moved out of my house and into an apartment. I’ve done some decorating and acquired things to make this more of a homey place for us. It’s going well as I just do a little bit at a time.

Once again I’ve found myself with stuff that isn’t being used or that I don’t need so I’ve posted some more things on eBay to sell. As I list each item I put it in a box. If the items don’t sell then they will be given to Goodwill along with other used and unneeded items. With Christmas coming, you never know who needs what so I thought I would share with you what I have on eBay. There are antique glass pieces, a Sleeping Beauty puzzle circa 1970s and I’m considering putting an antique doll in the mix that my grandmother gave to me.

If you’re interested, search WrightWriter on eBay and see what’s left to buy.

How do you make extra money or get rid of the items you aren’t using?


Keep your lunch cold with PackIt

This post brought to you by PackIt. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of the hardest things about packing a lunch for school or work is taking something that will endure the temperatures of the day. If you don't have access to a refrigerator, which is a problem most students have, then you often have to get creative or use those ice packs that only keep things cold for about two hours. Now, thanks to single moms Jeannette and Melissa that is not a dilemma anymore. They created the PackIt to solve the problem of keeping their children's lunches cool.

AdvertisementPackIt stays cold for up to 10 hours and is perfectly sized for on-the-go. Pack your lunch, store it where ever you like and when you're finished fold it up for storage. Piece of cake! The PackIt, when open, is 8"  x 10" x 5" and when folded is 8" x 5" x 2". And it's more than just a lunch bag, you can tote baby bottles, use it for snacks at a sporting event and take it on road trips or plane rides.

I know what I would use it for or rather what my middle daughter would use it for: She really prefers to take her lunch to school and, at only 6 years old, she likes to pack different things that often include cold items. I have to remind her that whatever it is won't be cold or like she likes it so she has to change her choice. With one of the PackIt lunch boxes she wouldn't have to worry about that.

Now is a good time to purchase one too as a gift or get one for yourself because, for a limited time, when you purchase a PackIt for $19.95 you can also get one for FREE. Now you know I am down for BOGO.

What would you use your PackIt for? Leave me a comment and let me know then tell me why it might be better than the regular old lunch bags.

PackIt can revolutionize lunch, don't you think?
