Do you make your bed every morning?

Topic: Around the House/DIY/Gardening ,    Subtopic: Organizing Tags: around the house organizing making the bed

What type of paint should I use on ceramic floor tile?

Topic: Around the House/DIY/Gardening

The tile flooring in my bathroom is made up of 1-inch hexagons in a black and white pattern. Each tile must have been placed individually because smack in the middle of the floor, one of the black tiles is out of place. It drives me nuts! I could peel up the entire floor and re-tile it, but that's d...

Topic: Around the House/DIY/Gardening ,    Subtopic: Organizing

I have been looking for Formula 409 since the first week of March. I have looked online and every time I go out to shop. The best I have found is a generic "compare to" brand, and it is so harsh, the fumes make my eyes water. It is like straight bleach. I don't understand how there can be such a sho...
