Why I Love My New Desk

As I write this I am still unsure what I want to share and if you, as readers, even care but I am determined to write and share it.

As many of you know it has been another crazy season here at Treasured Tidbits and nothing much has gone according to plan BUT we are still pressing on.

(Thrifty Thursday #2)

Thrifty Thursday #2 Decorating on a Dime

 Last week I shared my daughter’s finds at our local Goodwill here on our first Thrifty Thursday Post- “Gorgeous on a Goodwill Budget”.

This week I want to share the great finds I found.

While she was winding her way through the rows and rows of clothing available I was carefully perusing the linen department, hanger by hanger, looking for specific items and colors.  Of course, I found a few surprises too.  Like the adorable gobble, gobble towel and fun hot chocolate towel as well as the cozy blue item that will be used in at least two projects in my house later.

Most of these may seem like simple changes but the difference they can make is AMAZING.

Taking Control Week 1: Controlling Your Power Cords

Who is tired of seeing their power cords all over the floor?

Gathering dust, growing dust bunnies and just making your space look messy?

I know I am!!!

So when we remodeled our master bedroom (details to come) and I was on a mission to “declutter and simplify” our master.  I began brainstorming how to control the mess of cords we had in four different areas of our room:  my nightstand, hubby’s nightstand, my desk and the TV area.  (We have a TV area because our syndrome often leaves us bed bound and I don’t want a TV in my teen’s rooms.  Mean Mom, right?).

Yes, we shop at thrift stores and rummage sales.
