Home Improvement – Now Made Easy

Kia Knows Quality, My Kia Optima EX Review

I recently had the chance to review the 2013 Kia Optima EX. The exterior color (Dark Cherry) and design of this car is absolutely beautiful! Inside, the leather interior and dash board are equally impressive. She's a beauty! Maybe I've been spoiled a little by my previous reviews but my first thoughts once inside was disappointment over the lack of navigation system, back-up camera, or … [Read more...]

2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport LE Review

I recently spent a week driving the above 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport LE. It's not only beautiful to look at, but a pretty nice ride too.

This one I put to the test with my daily routine and my family's busy schedule. The Outlander Sport is … [Read more...]

My 10 Year eBay Anniversary

It didn't take me long after I was introduced to eBay to jump … [Read more...]

I Love Being Paid To Read

Do you love to read but don't always have it in your budget to pick up the newest and greatest books? If so, you're not alone. In a day that eReaders and eBooks are the "thing" I still enjoy the feel of holding an actual book in my hands, and turning the pages when I read. Shopping and buying books has been a weakness of mine that can be compared to how some women shop for shoes. I tend to keep a … [Read more...]

This giveaway is now closed. Pizza is almost always a big part of our family fun nights. We often chose a movie and then make a call for delivery. Like most families, we're really feeling a hit to our budget, so I've been giving thought to how much money we could be wasting on ordering pizza delivery? Doing the math - it's really quite a lot. Since a recent Oxfam International survey announced … [Read more...]
