My Purpose

As a recent college graduate preparing to be a teacher and a recent bride, I'm learning how to live in a limited budget. In the process, I've had to find money saving tips & ways to re-use common items, create cheap lesson plans, cook inexpensive meals, design DIY wedding projects, and more. With the economic situation that many of us are in, I think we can all use any ideas that people care to share, and that's exactly what I want to do-- share my own ideas and those that I've found in my searches. I hope you find this blog useful and share it with others.

The blog can be viewed in chronological order of posts via the "Home" button, or you can select a specific title for pages that contain information organized for one idea, such as "College," "Wedding," or "Party Planning." Also, you can view pages specific to one particular label by using the "Categories" element down the left side of the screen.

New Uses for... a cake stand

Uses for a Cake Stand

Set a mood. Use cake stands as platforms for votive and pillar candles in assorted sizes.

Exhibit your treasures. Display your collections--old toys, jewelry, Christmas ornaments, etc.

Remind yourself to do what you have to do. Place a cake stand (or two) on a table near the front door to hold letters to be mailed, bills to be paid, and your shopping list.

Show off. Display small photos and mementos, which look more important on a platform.

Raise the bar. Heighten the appeal of guest soaps and washcloths, or even use one to display your condiments for guests at a family get together.

Feel pretty. Organize your perfume bottles or jewelry on an elevated tray on the vanity table or dresser.
