House Repairs

Since we currently own two homes because we bought a house then moved and now rent one out and live in one we are constantly doing house projects.  I love doing projects on the house I live in but it is a challenge when we have to spend money on the house we don't live in.  One project we keep discussing and trying to figure out is the roof.  Should we do the roof or should we just try to sell the house.  Tough choices!  

Since we have purchased our house that we rent we have had insulation put in, done floors, redone the steps, painted both porches, refinished the step out porch, painted a bedroom and the kitchen, and purchased a new stove, water heater, furnace, and toilet.  We purchased the house in 2006...that's a lot of completed projects. I have to give so much credit to my husband who has made several 2 hour trips to go fix things.  I am so thankful I have not had to do all the work he has had to do.  I like projects at our house but not at our rental property... I know that is terrible.  

The house is over 100 years old so its not like it was made with ICF.  Anyone else have a house they use as a rental property?  How do you save money on house repairs?

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
