Tips on How to Improve Your Home on a Budget

On my previous post, I shared some ideas to consider in home renovation. Home renovation needs huge amount of pennies. But what if you are on a budget? Here are another tips in home renovation. 

Limited financially this year? Want to improve your home? No worries. With a few simple tips, DIY projects, and the right attitude and time allocated aside, you can truly improve the look and resale value of the home, even if you do not have too much put away to spend. These are a few simple ways to go about improving your home's appearance, even if you don't have much to spend in the process of doing so.

Refresh it 
You'll be surprised at what a coat of paint can do to any room. Many people think new furniture or pricey flooring is the only solution. Painting a room is far cheaper, and you can choose from hundreds of colour combinations, which will truly add a pop to any room. But on the other hand sometimes you can pick up furniture to refresh your home for cheap. When looking for new furniture you should always look online and in your local stores to see if there are any deals on the items you are looking for. Sometimes it is better to make a little investment instead of spending time refurbishing items you already have. There are multiple catalogue comparison sites which can help you find the perfect deal. One example of a site is latesthome.co.uk.

DIY it
Yes, doing it yourself is a great way to save money. Need new cabinets? Consider refinishing old ones in the home. There are dozens of little projects you can hire a professional to do, which will end up costing you two or three times as much than if you were to take the time to DIY these projects. 

Crown moulding
Yes, crown moulding adds great resale value to any room. But, hiring a professional is costly; and, doing it yourself can be extremely tedious and time consuming. But, products like trimroc moulding simply require you to slide a few pieces into place, and fit the foam coated plaster into place. It looks great, and takes virtually no time or effort to complete. 

Carpet runners, a small staircase, or even utilizing cubby holes or hidden spaces for storage, are all simple (affordable) solutions to improving your home's appearance. And, the beauty of these projects is how simple they are to complete, and how affordable they are for any homeowner to tackle.

US TV Series First Time in Filipino

I have been fed up, no offense meant, with the primetime teleseryes in major TV stations. Most have the same plot. It always started where the main characters were kids especially on the first week of airing. This is one of the reasons why I am looking for US TV series.

Though most of the series are shown on a weekly basis, sulit naman kasi almost one hour din. Hindi bitin. Watching such series ay medyo nosebleed, hindi mo naman pwedeng I replay kung may hindi ka naintindihan.

Until recently, I discovered how to enjoy some US TV series more. These are dubbed in Filipino. Hindi na kailangan ng tissue habang nanunuod.

These are Smallville, Arrow, Supernatural, and Once Upon A Time. Regular showing is every Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays starting at 7 PM on TV5.

The series is all about Oliver Queen, a rich but playboy of Starling City. He was stranded on an island of Lian Yu, somewhere in the Pacific, for five years. Most knew that he was already dead.

Upon his return, he was reunited with his mother, Moira Queen, sister, Thea Queen, and friends. Oliver also meets his ex-girlfriend Laurel Lance who stills blame him over her sister’s death.

The series has lots of flashbacks showing how Oliver and Sarah, Laurel’s sister, survived on the island of Lian Yu.

I haven’t watched the first season of this series and started the second season. As of today, the current season has ended last week but I am looking forward to the third season to be shown soon. Currently, it was replaced by Smallville as TV series about the strongest man on the planet – Superman.


Supernatural is about the adventures of Winchesters brothers, Sam and Dean hunting monsters and solving paranormal mysteries.

Currently, the series is already on its seventh season where the brothers deal with the evils known as leviathans.

One advice to parents like me, always watch this with your kids because of the violent scenes.

Once Upon A Time
This series is about the town of Storybrooke, Maine, where the main characters are from different known fairy tales who travel to the “real world”. However, the characters lost their memories because of the curse from Rumplestilskin applied by the Snow White’s Evil Queen Regina.

The Evil Queen Regina became the mayor of the real world and the only hope to regain the memories of the fairy tale characters is Emma Swan. She is the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming. She was sent to the real world via magic wardrobes before the Enchanted Forest was cursed by the evil queen.

Emma Swan is helped by her son, Henry who became an adoptive son of the evil Queen.

These Past Weeks...

These past weeks, I have been in a stage where I don’t have the drive to write even a single word on this blog. If it is not for a paid post, I haven’t updated my blog.

These past few weeks, I am losing my motivation to write.I know there are lots of thoughts and ideas but my brain cells seem hibernating.

These past weeks, there are lots of happenings that, I think, great to share but I cannot find the first word to start. The keyboard and the computer are staring at me waiting for my fingers to press the first letter.

These past weeks I have seen movies and other TV series that are worthy of catching the interest of others and may be hooked too but I won’t find the willingness to make a post on it.

Have you experienced the same situation?
What motivation did you use to get back in writing and maintaining your blog?
