Every Friday I feature a blog post in the following categories: Simple Living, Financial, DIY, Before & After, and Random. Here are this week's picks:
Best Financial: Ninja over at Punch Debt in the Face does a great job showing how you really don't need to spend your entire income on such a huge home. Just because one CAN get a large loan doesn't mean one HAS to!
Best DIY: If I had a real Christmas tree, I'd take Apartment Therapy's advice and create cool things out of tree trimmings!
Best Before & After: Apartment Therapy showcased this reno earlier in the week. I'm truly amazed (as usual!) by the transformation of this Brooklyn studio featured on theSweeten.
Best Random: Thank you, Design Sponge, for creating a city guide to one of my favorite places in the US - Iowa City! Shout out to my alma-mater, Go Hawks!
