Laundry makeover for under $3000 – before and after

Laundry makeover for under $3000

I’ve hated the laundry in my house ever since we build it. For 11 years now it’s been a washing machine and a metal basin, with a dryer on the wall. I’ve had no real storage and it’s been higgledy piggledy and annoying. So I finally decided to do something about it! I didn’t have a lot of money so we decided to attempt a laundry makeover for under $3000. Here’s how we did it…

Cricut for Beginners – Easter Bags

Cricut for beginners

Hello! How are you all feeling at the moment? Now that we are basically in lockdown, I’ve had some time to play with my Cricut. I’ve even been taking classes at Spotlight (well until they were postponed along with everything else). One of my favourite projects is these Easter bags I made for all the kids we camp with every year. However, camping has been cancelled as well so I’ll hold on to them until next year.

The world has gone mad and the people in the supermarket have gone even crazier. There is no toilet paper, no flour, no canned goods – nothing (except a lot of Easter eggs, which I’m fine with!) If you’re someone who has no idea where to start with a Corona Virus 14 day pantry plan, and doesn’t want to be the woman I saw today buying 20 boxes of Sultana Bran, then I’ve put together a plan and a shopping list for you, as well as some good online shops you can order from.

Back to school hacks for busy mums

back to school hacks

Now that Christmas is over we are all starting to plan for the kids to go back to school (it can’t come fast enough, right?). I don’t know about you but I’m back at work now, so I have to juggle my full-time job with getting everything ready for going back. Thankfully I just have one going back to school this year! Two kids down and one to go. After three kids and nearly 20 years of parenting I’ve got a fair few back to school hacks up my sleeve, so I thought I’d share them with you. Hopefully, this helps make your organising a little easier.
