52 Week Money Challenge - Are you game???

A while back I ran across a post someone shared on Facebook about a 52 Week Money Challenge.  I looked at it briefly and took note that this was something that I wanted to try.  Of course I forgot all about it and went on with my daily routine.  Thanks to Pinterest I ran across it again and this time I made sure to print out the 52 Week Money Challenge Chart, so I could track the amount to save each week.

 
So how does it work exactly???  Well for 52 weeks you save the same amount of money for which week you are on.  For instance week one you save $1, week two you save $2, and so on.  By the end of your 52 weeks you will have saved $1,378.00.  It may not seem like a whole lot, but it is when you are not taking that much each week from your paycheck and just putting it in a jar and allowing it to add up.  Since our household has two incomes we are both doing the challenge, so in 52 weeks we will have saved $2,756.00 or more because when my husband throws his loose change on the dresser- I add that in there as well....every little bit counts ;)
 
 
All you need to start is a jar and one dollar....Are you game for the 52 Week Money Challenge?  What will you use your money for? I'm sure we will find some DIY project to sink our savings into!

Shutters Make Me Flutter

I have a serious crush on our Bali EuroVue Shutters from Blinds.com.  A few weeks ago I shared that we had teamed up with Blinds.com to bring you some posts about their fabulous window coverings and they've done it again!  I didn't think it was possible to top the love that I have for our bamboo shades, but I was wrong!

I was on a search for shutters that came without a visible louver tilt rod like these...I was looking for something sleek and modern.  I was happy to find the Bali EuroVue Shutters, which offered easy installation, no visible hardware, and a contemporary design.  Ordering was simple!  But if you need additional help with ordering, they have design consultants to help you with all of your needs.  Once my order was placed it took about 30 days to receive our custom shutters and to my surprise I loved them even more in person.  I wanted to installed them as soon as I got home, but my husband was out of town for work so all I could do was wait.....



Installation was a breeze, and the entire process took only about 10 minutes!

Shutter Installation....

Step 1 - Assemble and Attach Frame to Window Jamb
  • Position side frames approximately 1" inside window opening.
  • Position light looks in the top and bottom of window between. installed side frames.

Step 2 - Prepare Hinges
  • Pry hinges open using screwdriver
  • Lift shutter panel up to window and slide hinges into mounting plates.
  • Tighten screws.
Step 3 - Attached Bumper Pads
  • Apply adhesive back bumper pads.


 
The shutters have a huge impact on our kitchen.  Everything looks much more custom and I LOVE it!  Make sure you check out Blinds.com and take advantage of our 10% discount offered to our readers (code: tyeshat) and right now the EuroVue shutters are on sale, so order yours today!!

As a DIY blogger I look for inspiration and how-to tutorials all of the time.  My main go to sites are Hometalk and Pinterest.  So imagine my surprise when I was contacted by Hometalk to curate a "Simple DIY Composting" board using their new "clipboard" feature, because they loved our Composting Made Easy Pinterest Challenge that we posted awhile back.
