Summer Vacation Summer List Essentials

Today is the official Summer Day! Yup done with the Spring and hello to Summer!  My son's school is already ended, and I'm planning to bring the family to a short summer FUN vacation in South Lake Tahoe.  And here's my check lists and available fo you download.


FREE Household Budget Planner

I was looking from free printable on-line but some of them are not free, so I did it myself  and created it using Microsoft Excel to put it all together.  I hope you find this budget sheet helpful to plan your financial expenses and savings.  I separated the Fixed and Variable costs.  This way you can easily view and adjust the cost to fit your budget. 

Other than having a hard copy I love using mint.com.  Super easy to use and you can tell ahead of time if you still on tract on your monthly budget.  More budget binder coming soon.

The pages are designed to be printed on standard letter 8.5" x 11" paper. The files are in PDF format which open best with Adobe Reader which can be downloaded for free.

Accessorized Old Barretts

Found a tons of hair barrets that are out of style and left out.  Using my loose beads from my accessories project I thought I can bring it back to life.


Old or New Barrets
Plastic Strings
Note: You can find above materials from craft stores like Michael's and Joann's crafting stores.

1. Take out the inner stopper while wrapping the beads.
2. Create a knot at the end hole of the barrett, make sure you tie it securely.  

3. Strings the bead.

4.  Wrap it around the the barrett until you covered the whole top part up to the other end hole of the barrett.

5.  Finally, just tie the end securely and put back the inner stopper metal.
