Why do we keep all these things?

Why do we keep all of these things?

I’m sure this is a question everyone reading this blog has asked themselves at one point in time.

I know my house is clean and organized but also could use improvements in some areas. One day I was on Instagram and saw a lot of people cleaning and decluttering their homes because of a new show on Netflix with Marie Kondo (I think that’s how you spell it.) Anyways I learned how to fold items to get more in a drawer which I wasn’t currently doing and this helped out a lot, especially my husbands shirts (this man has every under armour shirt in all colors).

I also folded my towels, hand towels and wash clothes and realized we have kept a lot that are tattered or discolored and need to be thrown away which I did do. Later I realized that the towels could have been donated to the dog shelter because they always need towels. I will keep that in mind next time we need new towels. I did keep two or three old towels in the closet under our steps which now I am glad I did because we had a pipe burst and a leaking hot water heater last week and I needed those old towels to help clean up that mess.

I moved on to socks, I basically just folded them together which was stretching out the band of the sock. I asked myself why do we keep all these socks that don’t have a match and may have a hole? So I got rid of a ton and actually had room in the drawer for other items.

I still need to get rid of more but slowly working on it. I can’t wait to get a day off and on trash night leave the trash men a huge surprise in the morning for the next upcoming weeks. I’m sure they won’t be happy. I wish my homeowners association would have a dumpster day cause I’m sure I could fill up some of it. I just don’t feel like selling some of it at a yard sale. I also know the lady who I believe is a hoarder down the road could use one for herself. Lol

Anyways get to organizing and cleaning. I know I will be.

You can always donate used old towels and blankets to your local dog rescues or animal shelters they always need things like this.

New Journey! 📸📷📸 

Well we always say things happen for a reason and with that being said I am focusing on me and my businesses so that I can provide for my family. I decided to focus more of my energy into my photography and launch a Facebook page and see what happens. I love taking photos, and praying that one day I will be that photographer that goes into the hospital to take baby photos and into the dog rescues to take photos of the pets so that they can post photos of the dogs that need to be adopted.

I hope u enjoy my photos as much as I love taking these photos. Please visit my Facebook page Angelina Hindle Photography and see what’s new.

Planning a shrimp and bull roast 🍤🍤🍺🍺

Planning a bull roast is very hard work but we are getting there slowly. We wanted to raise money for charity because our close friend has a son who has CHD which is congenital heart defect. He will need several surgeries throughout his life and we wanted to give back the the group that helped them and provided support and resources for them during their journey. 

I am so glad we have several generous businesses that have donated so many great gifts for the bull roast to raise money for charity. Now we just have to sell more tickets to get our minimum amount of guests. 

Here are some pictures of the donations we got for the raffles and door prizes. 

I will take some gift cards and also add them to gift baskets and well as I will get a photo frame and add several gift cards to auction off.

Backyard Oasis and the dogs this Memorial Day Holiday 🐾🐶🍷🍹🏡🌸🌹

Hubby and I were outside all day cleaning up the shed and backyard. I did accomplish one item on my to do list of home improvements. I went to Home Depot this morning and got rubber mulch and grey and white rocks to put at the front of the deck so the dogs stop digging in the mud everyday. 

Here are some pics from this afternoon on the deck. 

   
            

Here are more photos of the deck in the evening. 

   

  

  

  

   

Any Contractors Out There I Need Help!!!!! 🔨🔨🔨🔨🏡🏠

I need help with some small projects around my home. So let me explain what my plans are, I want to start getting some small things fixed around my home at a cheap price so that we can sell the home soon. In our neighborhood right now houses are not being renovated on the inside and prices have dropped a little. So using advice from all the blogs and professionals I follow upgrading and renovating with high end materials in a area that isn’t having this type of work done will not increase the value of my home and no one will purchase our home for the price we want. 

Home improvements are very expensive and placing a lot more money into this home when we wont get it back in return just isn’t in the cards, so my goal is to fix the important things at the best way I can. 

First on the list is my windows, I don’t want to spend money on new windows for my whole house even if I only have 8 windows. So I was hoping to get advice and referrals of companies that are in Maryland that could help me with this issue. 

One day I opened my window and I didn’t feel a difference but I let go thinking it would stay up and it came crashing down very hard. The latch that u push to pull the window into the house and the spring inside that went flying across the room. The metal window frame at the top that holds the latch is bent forward and I didn’t want to press on it because I didn’t want to pressure to break the glass inside the window. So now the window won’t stay closed and air is going out and air coming in. 

In order to sell our home I know we need this fixed because if a child was in that bedroom that is very dangerous. So I need any help I can get. Excuse my photos of my dusty window these were before spring cleaning happened lol 

  
This is a photo of the broken latch I placed it on top so I wouldn’t lose it and the top where it is sitting u can see that the frame is bent some. 

   
     

So if anyone knows a handyman or business that can come out to help fix this so I don’t need to replace the windows would be a great help to me. Thanks 

Garage Apartment 🏡🏠🔨🔨

We currently live in a townhouse, I love my house but there are things I wish I would have needed when we were looking at houses 15 yrs ago. We said we would only be here five years and then move and here we are 15 years later in the same home. One thing I don’t like about the house we live in currently is that we do not have a basement. 

Having a basement would give us so much more room and I don’t think I would want to move if we had a basement. Well we are thinking about getting our home ready to sell but it will take some time. We joke all the time with my mom that we will build a large apartment over her garage and live there lol. 

I was on Pinterest and found some examples of what I could build on top of the garage which is a two car garage. One example of a one car garage but I saved it because I loved the little screened in porch etc. 

I am not sure which websites the photos came from to give them credit for photos.

I totally wish I had the money to start building this apartment over the garage, I don’t even know if I could I am sure permits would have to be pulled and more. But a girl can dream
