I’ve always been a DIY fan, and with the recent Pinterest hype, finding DIY activities is now easier than ever. Some of the easiest (and most beneficial) DIY items are beauty products. Who ever thought that you would be able to fully stock your medicine cabinet with DIY items from teeth whitening to lip gloss? Well, you can. Here are a few to get you started on the totally DIY pampering:
Like I said. It’s never been easier! Give these few items a try and you’ll more than likely be begging for more. Let me know with a comment below, a like, or a tweet and another post like this will come to you shortly! You can also find more penny saving ideas on our Pinterest board. Pamper on!
How many of us suffer from messy kitchens? I am certainly one of them. But whether its due to lack of counter or cabinet space, an overstuffed fridge, or what have you — organization tips and products are always a great help. Get Organized! is a great site FULL of great gadgets to help your household on track. Here are four products I think would be super helpful in my kitchen, and maybe yours, too!
Looks like I won’t be using that plastic-bag-underneath-the-counter trick anytime soon. This “Scrap Trap” even comes with a scraper/brush that stores on the side. AND it holds up to 2 quarts!
Okay, I will admit that I’m one of those people that has their flour and sugar spill all over the cabinet and countertop whenever I go to use it. This dispenser can hold a 5lb bag of sugar or flour and allows you to pour right from the bag without a mess! It also keeps its contents fresh, dry and bug free while helping your cabinet get organized. Too great!
FRIDGE ROLL OUT CADDY
This roll out caddy keeps your food organized and accessible, eliminating the possibility of those “forgotten items” in the back of your fridge. They’re also dishwasher safe!
LID AND SPOON REST
I hate when I’m cooking and I go to take the lid off my pot and its a. way too hot, b. covered in sauce or water, and c. DRIPS EVERYWHERE. This lid/spoon rest eliminates those problems and saves valuable counter space while you’re making dinner.
If you follow Social Grocery on Pinterest, you know that we’re all about cute — and funny — foods. This is among many other things like crafts, how-to’s, DIY projects, etc., but Pinterest is just full of the cutest foods you’ve ever seen, especially when it comes to desserts and treats. For instance, when I saw thisKFC bucket full of drumstick-inspired decorated cookies, I couldn’t help but give in to my urge to post it:
If you are wondering how to create this insanely amazing and hilarious cookies, here is the post from Bake at 350. They refer to these cookies as “desserts for dudes.” Love it!
To complete this post – what, you thought that was it? – I have found two other sets of decorated cookies that are along the same “dude food” theme .. or just fantastic in general.
As many of you already know, our Social Grocery office is located in beautiful Vermont. HOWEVER, due to our geographical location, we are a battle zone when it comes to football team loyalties. While Vermont is technically part of New England(Patriots Nation), we also share a long border with New York(Giants turf). Because of this, Vermonters are a mixed breed when it comes to the pigskin. And when our two teams go head-to-head, Super Bowl parties are taken a bit more seriously than most!
Because the air around here is so thick with competition, we thought the least we can do is create a great list of Super Bowl party ideas for everyone to enjoy — Patriots fans, Giants fans and others alike! We give you our “TOUCHDOWN!” list (on Pinterest):
We’ve been searching the Internet far and wide to find the best Super Bowl recipes, decorating tips and entertaining ideas for you to noodle. We’ll be updating this list all week, so make sure you stop by again! You can also follow our Twitter feed for some helpful links.
