Installing A Toilet Seat

People always look at me funny when I talk about some of the things I do around here. I get a lot of "Why doesn't your husband do that?" but come on people women can do thing to! Changing a toilet seat out isn't exactly rocket science let's face it. Many single women and heck even some men hire someone to do it and spend $100+. Well here I am to show you that you to can save money by doing it yourself. A toilet can seat can be bought at pretty much any superstore or hardware store in America. I got mine from Walmart for $20, but you can usually pick one up at low as $10. You will never need more then a pair of pliers and a flat screw driver(I used a butter knife).
First you simply remove the bolt off the nut. This one was plastic and could be turned by hand

Take the time to scrub the heck out of it while it is off! Sadly that is clean.lol

My new one came with a plastic washer and a bolt. I needed pliers to put it back on

Make sure to put the plastic washer on it keeps the seat from moving and breaking! 



Simple as can be you saved big $ and probably spent less time doing it yourself then waiting for the plumber to actually get there!

I agree you do save money. I find myself doing a lot of repairs myself everything is just so costly when you have others come in to do it.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering.
