The $10 Challenge

In case you haven't figured out, I am not all that creative, very short on funds, and desperately wanting a "cute" house. The last might be too much to ask for considering I have 2 little boys (4 and 3) and one big boy (love you Hubby!). As I was making the guest bed today I was wondering if I could make some subtle and inexpensive changes to help on the "cute" level in our home. So, I made a decision.

I am issuing a challenge for myself and anyone else who wants to join in the fun!

The challenge is to spend no more than $10 a week and to make a creative/ inventive/ useful change to your home. Take a before and after picture and post in on your blog. I will be doing the same, so check back late next week. If you decide to take me up on it, leave a comment so I know to come and check it out! Why $10 you might ask? Well, I think I can manage to cut $20 out of my grocery budget every two weeks. I think. I hope. Maybe it will be cereal for 3 nights instead of 2 :) (Love you Hubby!)
