Home Goods Giveaway & Learn Your Style Personality

Do you ever take personality quizzes?  I am a sucker for them and am always fascinated to learn about myself.  So when Home Goods asked me if I wanted to learn my style through their Style Scope quiz and then shop based upon my style I wholeheartedly said “absolutely.”

If you know my personality well then it is probably no surprise that my style personality is pretty similar.

Do you know what always surprises me?  Technology.  The fast pace it evolves blows my freakin’ mind.  If you told me 5 years ago my Iphone would be my third arm I wouldn’t believe you.  If you told me I would be able to stream video via Netflix or Amazon onto my home TV I would have gasped.  And now I can actually print from my Ipad or Iphone or laptop wirelessly with my Canon PIXMA printer – oh stop you are just teasing me now.MG7120_AS_blk_FrontShot_Sample

BLACK+DECKER Pivot Vac – the Best Handheld Vacuum

BLACK+DECKER Pivot Vac – the Best Handheld Vacuum

I am a firm believer in teaching the kids that as part of the family they have jobs to keep our home running smoothly.  Some of these job are family contributions – things they have to do simply as part of the family.  Then there are things they get to do (called chores) that they do to earn money.  I pay my kiddos half their age each week.  So since Kayla is 5 she makes $2.50 each week and Isaac makes $3.50 ($4 in a couple of weeks when he turns 8!).  In addition to collecting the shoes and putting them back at the end of the day, setting the table, and straightening the pillows on the couch each day Kayla has to vacuum the kitchen floor.  To make her job easier we bought her a BLACK + DECKER Pivot Vac.

HomeRight Paint Sticks

HomeRight Paint Sticks

Painting a room is probably one of my least favorite things to do when it comes to DIY projects.  It is just so monotonous and usually, in my case, messy.  I am always looking for ways to make it more efficient and cleaner.  Of course, a high quality paint goes a long way in making it easier.  However, I have found a tool that makes the rolling go faster.  Painters will tell you that dipping the roller back into the rolling tray is about 1/3 of your time.  What if you could eliminate the back and forth?  Well HomeRight has come up with a handy dandy invention to do just that.
