Calling All Weekend Warriors!

Are you a "Weekend Warrior"?  

Do you get a home improvement project in your head and just go for it?  Do you cringe when someone suggests you just "hire someone" or "go out and buy one"?  Can you sympathize with Heathcliff Huxtable and his ongoing mission to fix the kitchen sink by himself?

If so - we need YOU!

I'd love to start a new weekly segment on DIY home/yard projects (They can be big or small!) that shows how Do-It-Yourselfers save money creatively!  Watching someone else complete a DIY project always motivates me to roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty - so why not inspire each other?

I'll get things started for the first couple weeks with a few DIY projects my mom kindly documented for us (Week 1: Compost Pile Week 2: CampFire Circle).  That will give you guys *2 WHOLE WEEKS* to take some pictures and write up a brief "How-To" of a project you've done recently!

Just email your "Weekend Warrior" project, along with at least *3* photo attachments (I like pictures, what??) & Step-by-Step instructions to: time2saveworkshops @
Here's an idea of a step-by-step post, although this one is a cake....

If your idea is used:

You'll have the fantastic prize of knowing you've inspired us all to get up off our lazy behinds and do something productive!  And of course, bragging rights for your own DIY awesomeness :)   I'm really looking forward to seeing your ideas!!

Simplify Sunday (5/30) Memorial Day

Debby McCuiston, self-proclaimed "Queen of Clutter-Free", does a segment for us each Sunday on simplifying our lives, getting rid of "clutter", and focusing on what's important.  We're really love this weekly segment - and hope you will too!  Take it away Debby...
Happy Memorial Day! May I take a minute to say a very special THANK YOU to the men and women that have been willing to put themselves in harms way to protect my freedom. They are amazing people!! They go where and whenever they are called to give more than most, for me and my family. I stand in awe when I think of the sacrifices they have made on behalf of people they may never know. The sweet moments they miss with family and friends. The little and big problems that they know are going on at home but still continue to do the job they have been called to do.

I will forever be in debt the the families that have lost their precious son or daughter, brother or sister, husband or wife, and daddy or mommy so I can continue to live my life. Because of their sacrifice, it makes me want to live worthy of what they are willing to do for me. Please take a minute, anytime you see someone in the service, and thank them. Maybe if you know their family you could help out while they are away. Let them know we realize that without them we would not be the living in "THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE".  Thank you!!!
