You may have noticed the wooden lamp in my stepsons’ room in the photos I shared from their room makeover.
My husband and I found it at Goodwill a LONG time ago and swore we would give it a makeover. Well, that never happened. However, we needed it because none of the bedrooms in our apartment have overhead lighting and it provides the only lighting in the room.
When Walmart challenged me to do a spray paint project with the new Rust-Oleum American Accents Ultra Cover 2X paint, I knew that I would finally tackle this lamp. :: READ THE FULL POST
I’m a wife, mother and a businesswoman, and I’m busy. All. The. Time. I will also fully admit that cleaning house is not one of my favorite things to do. All of this means that I love the idea of anything that will make cleaning easier for me.
When I first saw commercials for the O-Duster floor cleaner, I was intrigued. An automatic sweeper I could turn on and forget? And at less than $40? Sounded great! So when Walmart offered me an opportunity to try this machine, it was a no-brainer.

So…remember the other day I shared a photo of our disaster of a patio? In case you don’t, here are some more photos of it to jog your memory.

This happens every year. As the weather starts to warm up for spring, my husband and I will venture out onto our patio and wonder what the heck happened. You see, we tend to use our outdoor space quite a bit during the warm months. But as soon as the weather turns cool, and then cold, the porch becomes a glorified storage space where our recycling goes to die. Covered in pollen.
Seriously, it looked like a warzone out there. Definitely not a space that encourages hanging out. So on my last trip to Walmart, I couldn’t help but swoon over the outdoor goodies to be found in the garden center. :: READ THE FULL POST
Once you make a conscious effort to live a greener lifestyle, you’ll notice a mental shift. Things that once would’ve gone in the trash suddenly get a second look, and you’ll try to figure out how to reuse them, rather than just throw them away — even if they were going into the recycling bin.
That is the idea behind Walmart Green’s latest giveaway, the Recycle Revamp Pinterest contest.
