Restroom Update with little to No Budget

We have been slowly making process in our new house to make our home. It was updated when we first purchased it a year ago, but still needed a few of our touches! There are a few big projects in our 5-year plan but for now, we are updating room by room, making it our own until we give it a total facelift!

One of the rooms that always tends to get forgotten in the restrooms. We keep very clean, stocked, closed and that’s about it. With the holidays already here I thought I would give our half restroom a little update. Our restroom in on the hallway that separates our kitchen and formal dining right in front of the laundry. Hence the fact why we tend to forget about it!

 

Now, this restroom was slightly updated with a mirror, new tile, and new toilet before we moved in, but my awesome hubby refinished the grout to a dark grey instead of the preexisting white when he did our kitchen. That alone, gave it a whole different look for less than $14 and we still had left over after doing both rooms and a hallway!

 

I added a few finishing touches that gave it an updated look on a dime. I found this rug and similar decorations at Family Dollar when I went to pick up Scott® Comfort Plus™ Toilet Paper.  

I love that

While there are a close to a million kinds of toilet paper, we use Scott® Comfort Plus Toilet Paper for all our restroom in our home because is 5 in 1- soft, strong, thick, absorbent and keeps my drains clog-free. Plus we have a little princess who loves toilet paper and thinks the potty does too, so all very important since she probably uses this restroom 4853850 times a day! It’s 3x stronger for unbeatable comfort and not only that but it’s is better than the competition, and is preferred over Angel Soft.

I spent less than $20 in this room and it’s already a little cozier! We plan to add shelves and get a new vanity but for now, I’m in love and it’s just what this room needed! You can also do yours! Make a trip to your local Family Dollar and don’t forget to stock up on Scott® Comfort Plus™ Toilet Paper.   for 24 CT Big Roll at $7.95.

Easy Homemade Mashed Potato

This is not your typical holiday post because for us mashed potatoes are always a must but with Thanks Giving around the corner, well gosh next week. I wanted to share with everyone this easy mashed potato the whole family can enjoy and help in the progress!

To be honest this is probably the only thing I make for Thanksgiving. We buy our Turkey Dinner but somehow there is never enough mashed potatoes. I make these and my family loves them and devours them instantly! Without further ado, here is the recipe and the cutest little helper on a cold day!

 

 

Ingredients;

10 lbs bag of Potatoes

1 Land’ O Lakes Squeezable Spread bottles

1/2- 1 cup of Milk

Salt, pepper, and cheese to taste

Mashed potatoes are usually pretty easy, wash, rinse and boil but if you want to take make it one step faster, place half the potatoes in a bag and microwave for 6-8 minutes and done!

I decided to boil this set while I was tending my little helper but again it’s when you need it in a rush! Then, I placed all my potatoes in my stand mixer, added Land’ O Lakes Squeezable and milk. Land’ O   Lakes Squeezable Spread is so easy and fast for everyone, that my little helper had a little too much fun with it and asked to do it 5 times, and even added more to her own mashed potatoes.

These beautiful plates are the new Everyday Collection from Lifeway. Love the message

Land’ O Lakes Squeezable Spread it’s very easy to squeeze and it’s a spread made with real butter perfect for pancakes, pasta, and toast! Be sure to get yours at your local Kroger and tell me what you made with it!
