Make Your Own Furniture!

Do you love the furniture from stores like Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel and other expensive furniture stores? Yesterday, a friend had posted about Knock Off Wood on facebook.

Knock Off Wood

So I took a look around yesterday and I love this site!! She shows you how to make the furniture you see in these catalogs. I love looking through my Pottery Barn catalog and dream of the day that I can somehow afford some of the pieces I see. But now I can! She has plans for dining room tables, bookcases, those huge entertainment centers, beds, kids furniture and more. She even shows you how to make those cute Pottery Barn play kitchen sets! She also has a few of her own designs. And what's great about making it yourself, is that you can customize it to fit your needs or style. One reader even shrunk an entertainment center to fit her needs. I can't wait until we buy our own home again! I'll be putting my husband to work! ;)
Here is a couple of her projects...
And of course there are much more and much bigger projects you can do too! I'm in love!

Here is her bragging board filled with pictures of her fans' projects using her designs.

Shopping Lists 3/7-3/13/2010

I've discovered a new Target list. This week, I'm featuring The Krazy Coupon Lady's Target list. She's very detailed and lists every coupon out there that you can use. Although, I'm not too thrilled with the sales at Target this week. I would recommend you still look at Pocket Your Dollars for the On-Going Deals.
  • Huggies Little Movers or Little Snugglers Jumbo pack Final Price: $5.49
  • Johnsons Baby Final Price: $2.00
  • Dial Liquid Hand Soap, 7.5 oz Final Price: $0.49

I'm not too thrilled with the featured items at Aldi, but it's still the first place I go when I go grocery shopping and then, whatever I can't find there, I just go buy at Target. Of course it would be my luck that the featured items are mostly Italian stuff. We just went and I had some of that stuff on my list!

And Aldi is featuring Easter stuff and toys this week. My kids are not into Zhu Zhu pets, but they have them for $5.99 which I think is a good price.

For the Aldi list, go to Cincinnati Cents.

Frugal Tip: Extending the Life of Your Magic Eraser

I think most moms know the amazing cleaning power of Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser. It truly is magic. This is the best cleaning product I've ever used! Well my husband was looking around the internet and found this little tip on how to make your Magic Eraser last longer. You can cut it up and use only what you need! I just cut mine in half and use it until it's no good. But you can cut it up smaller if you'd like. When my husband told me about this, I was like, "Duh Kerrie!" Why didn't I think of that?
