Just last week, I decided to use my savings to put up the awning type in the laundry area. It has been like years that I am planning to put one up but I always out of budget so last December, I tried to save up and was able to come up with an amount, I planned to just withdraw it on May but I realized summer is fast approaching and it would be so hot in our laundry area, my sister already have a hard time doing the laundry there how much more during summer. So I withdraw it and hired someone to do it and its worth it, sister is so happy with it, she doesn’t have to suffer anymore under the dreading heat of the sun.

It started like this:

Designing a More Environmentally Friendly Kitchen

Concern for the health of the environment is not a new concept, but it is one that is taking hold when it comes to remodeling existing homes. Below are a few ideas for adding a few environmentally friendly features to your kitchen space.

Incorporate Natural Lighting

Natural lighting is healthier and uses less electricity than artificial lighting. Consider adding skylights, when possible and adding wider windows. LED lighting uses less energy and provides better light, if it is not possible to increase natural lighting in your kitchen space.

Create Better Air Ventilation

Indoor air is considered to be twice as polluted as outside air. It is essential to find ways to bring fresh air into your kitchen. Incorporate some type of ventilation system that will offer a good air exchange when updating your kitchen.

Use Energy Star Appliances

Energy Star appliances have been tested and rated to use much less energy than other contemporary models. Saving energy is one of the best ways to help the environment. Energy Star rated appliances come in many styles and run as efficiently and powerfully as any other.

Avoid Stains, Paints and Products That Emit Toxins

Cupboards, countertops and flooring can all be coated or created with products that emit toxic substances, such as formaldehyde. Seek out products that are environmentally friendly and will not push out toxic substances that can be harmful to you, your family and pets.

Avoid Building a Kitchen Island

Rather than having a kitchen island built, try taking an old stand or dresser and place it on rollers. You can cover it with cutting board material and have the perfect kitchen island. It saves an older piece of furniture from ending up in the landfill. You will get the extra counter space and storage you need and feel great about it.

Re-purpose As many Items As Possible

Why buy brand new decor from the store when you can find used items for re-purposing? You can have a lot of fun exploring flea markets and thrift stores to find the right items for storage or decoration. You might even be fortunate enough to find older copper-bottom pans with original patina. It will be an attractive display item that your friends and family will love.

No Time To Do Anything At Home

I arrived home late again yesterday; it is because I dropped by in the mall to check something. I bought a new bracelet for my wristwatch and a pair of earrings. I also need to fetch Mj in the school since they had MTAP training. When I got in the school, I need to wait for almost an hour for their dismissal. I think my daughter was too tired because she asked me if we can get home right away. Good thing, I brought the car with me so we were able to get home right away, the thing is the moment I parked the car, we found out that the car got overheat, have to call the mechanic right away, we need to buy a hose for radiator. I told the mechanic if we can do it all on Thursday, I don’t have enough budgets yesterday.

I was so tired even today to organized things for the house, I need to do some changes in the house but I can’t because I am too busy. I know that I promised to have our window repair, or bought a new living room door, or put a garage spot and put a roof in our laundry area but geez I could not do it all, not this time as I need to save so I can accomplish something.
