One Paycheck and A Housewife: Home economics on a small budget

When you live in Northern California with the housing market rising, cost of living excelling, and trying to make it work on one small income...creativity and surrender comes into play. This housewife has learned, from years of making ends meet on a small budget and making money mistakes, just how to create a lovely shabby chic home, feed her family nutritious and healthy foods, and make a fun life for all of them on little funds or for free. She has also realized what can be sacrificed to afford what really matters. There is homesteading in town, canning, even if you have to buy your produce from Sprouts because the garden wasn't as abundant that year, beauty regimes for hundreds less than a salon, decorating from hand me downs and making the house look amazing, and luxuries that don't cost much at all. There is a lot in this small book to inspire the homemaker, woman or man, and many references to vlogs and books to keep you motivated and learning how to improve the families life and survive these times.

Tidying Up: Learn The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing

This is not a cleaning manual. It is the beginning of self-transformation. Really?

How can the tiresome and tedious task of tidying up your house change your life? Why has the Japanese Art of Decluttering and Reorganizing become such an extremely popular pursuit? Why is it often called "Magic"?

If you truly commit yourself to this process, if you employ the various techniques recommended, yes, you will be transformed as if by magic! No, the rudimentary task of tidying up is not magic. The cleanup isn't magic. The magic lies in the process itself, not the tidy house. It is the process itself that will change the "old you" into the "new you".

Your new you will be:

a person who puts his or her life into perspective in terms of the past, present and future

a person who is more decisive than ever before

a person who has sense of self-worth- a self-worth that comes from within

There have been many who have tried this process and failed. They found it difficult once they embarked upon the task. That is why this experience really is transformative. And transformation is never easy. Do you really want to transform yourself? It is well worth the journey if you don't shy from a challenge.

IRONING MADE EASY: The Far Easier Way to Iron (House Cleaning, Decluttering, and Organizing Made Easy Book 1)

Stop struggling with the ironing. Do it the easier way.

I used to find ironing hard.

I hated it. I particularly hated ironing leggings as new creases used to form on the other side from the iron itself. They were a real pain.

Over time I discovered what worked better. The main thing is the lifting method. Combined with the other things I do, ironing is now a lot easier and faster.

Even though this is still not my most favorite thing, I find it a breeze compared to what it used to be like.

Find out what I know...

The Complete Guide to Under Cabinet Lighting

Today, the kitchen has to be multifunctional. It's not only a place to prepare and eat food, but also a place to relax, a place to entertain, and a place to enjoy. It should be inviting, bright, functional, and easy to control. The right kitchen lighting will help you stay clean, organized, and safe, while letting you create the perfect atmosphere for an early morning baking frenzy, board games with the kids on a rainy afternoon, or spending a couple's night in.

Most of all, light layering (having multiple light sources for different purposes) is the most important, all-encompassing rule in kitchen lighting design. A single light source never does any space justice. You need different sources of light for different purposes. Ambient lighting, task lighting, accent lighting, safety lighting, and mood lighting are all essential parts of great kitchen design.

This book will first and foremost address task lighting in the kitchen.

Under cabinet lights are the most popular, attractive, and handy kind of task lighting for the kitchen. Lighting designers agree that the path to any beautiful, functional kitchen starts with excellent task lights. Kitchen task lights have one simple purpose - to help you out. When you really need to get down to business, to cook a gourmet dinner or finally scrub down those countertops, task lights allow you to see.

In this book, you'll learn how to get that perfect lighting in your own kitchen. You'll discover what kind of under cabinet lights will work best for your space, the ins and outs of every light source and fixture style, and even what kind of lights will work best with your personality. Then, move on to step-by-step instructions on how to layout, install, and operate your under cabinet lights.

Already have under cabinet lights in your kitchen? Just flip over to the maintenance section to learn what to expect from your lights over time, and how to fix common problems that may come up.

You may also want to note that under cabinet lights work in areas other than the kitchen - offices, labs, workstations, even in outdoor cooking areas.
