About Me

Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

I heart the dollar tree

The organizing just never stops here and I LOVE coming up with new ideas for how to get my things organized and easy to get at!  My newest project was above my stove.  At my Georgia home things we didn't need to get at often went over the stove.  But at this house...it couldn't be any other way.  So my spice "cabinet" had to get put there!  In our old home it was in a cabinet that was pretty much at eye level and my most used things were always in the front.  It's not so much eye level anymore.  Here is the before - it literally came out of a box and SHOVED up there so we could get the box out of the house!

I found these jem's at Dollar Tree for you guessed it!  A DOLLAR!  Blue isn't the color of our kitchen so I sprayed them with a marron plastic fusion paint (which I happened to have on hand!)

 It's too hot in texas for them to dry properly so I had to bring them inside when they were done!  I put a peice of parchement paper in the bottom of each one just so they wouldn't stick or if anything spilled it would clean up easily!
 AREN'T THEY SO CUTE!  and look how much that cleaned up that cabinet - now it's all organized in "sprinkles" "baking" "seasoning" and I can simply pull down one at a time and all the corresponding things will come down with it!
