DIY Drawer Dividers

I have always wanted some of these spring dividers from Container Store/lots of other places.  Apparently they are awesome and work really, really well… like nearly 5 stars well.  Almost anywhere I’ve looked.  Pretty darn solid.

As much as I dream about owning them one day, rather than shell out the money  (because you know you can’t just get ONE…these things are like potato chips), I decided to try my hand at making my own.  And I am so glad I did.  They were so EASY to make.  The whole process probably took me 30 minutes start to finish?  Easy peasy, and the result is awesome.

What I used for this project (click to learn more):…and YES THE DOLLAR TREE CARRIES FOAM BOARD!   You’re welcome 😉

                           

They are sturdy and professional looking… and I want to keep doing this to all of my drawers!

Here’s how to make them step-by-step…day by day by day….;)

IT’S MONSTER HUGE!

Before we grew zucchini, I was always intimidated by having it in our garden.  Like if WE tried to grow it, we would end up with some shriveled looking alien food.  REALITY: It’s one of the easiest plants to grow.  I talked about my zucchini obsession in my last garden video.  All of our plants have started producing enough food that we haven’t bought veggies in the past 5 weeks.  Hello, savings!

Just to give you an idea of the size of the zucchini yield…here is a giant zucchini… and Carson… for scale.  We get about 2-3 of these a day from just 3 plants.  And oodles of beans and tomatoes.

Yup.  The kid was trying to eat it raw.  Luna would also like to say hello.

Zucchini takes up about 4 squares of a garden using the square foot gardening method.  It’s a big plant… but worth it.

OUR GARDEN ESSENTIALS

(yup, we use dollar tree buckets to gather our produce and bring it inside!)

                         

Last year (when I was still pregnant) Char and I filmed this video about how to make your own raised bed garden on the cheap.  So this is sort of like a #tbtuesday?  Yay cheap, healthy things!

BEHIND THE SCENES NOTE:  I was so tired when we filmed that I sat down to hold the camera for most of it.  Oh first trimester…how I don’t miss you. 😉

Baby deals! 6.23.14

It’s tough to find coupon codes on Amazon…I know I rarely see them. We are in the market for a new convertible car seat (Carson is huge y’all), and of course I was searching for deals, reading reviews, and trying to find this most economical option this morning.  I did a search for Amazon coupon codes and JACKPOT!

Right now Amazon has a 20% off select baby gear coupon code: SUMMERGEAR

That makes this Graco Convertible Car Seat that retails for $179.99 just $119!  I usually really like Graco products.

IMG_3634Wanted to pass this along in case any of you were in the market for one.  To be honest, I don’t know when this code expires, but I know this code also applies to lots of other baby items that might be worth browsing! These are the other featured deals!

What did/do you look for in a car seat?

welcome!

Welcome to Doitonadime’s corner of the web!

I want this blog to be simple.  Straightforward.  I want to have a central location where I upload my videos but also share with you content that matters.  Frequently asked questions, printables, my favorite organizing products, great deals online…all of the above.  This is also a place that I can connect with each of you and share more about myself and my family.

This blog will be a blog of few words since the meat of my content is in my videos.  When I read blogs, I mostly skim and go for the pictures and videos anyway.  Don’t lie, you do, too 😉

So click around, explore the links up top, and let me know some things you’d like to see!  This site is brand-new, so expect it to grow with time 🙂
