Saving Money On Remodeling

A home remodeling project can often be exciting, but it can also get expensive in a short amount of time. There are a few ways that you can save money when you start home remodeling whether it's in one room or the entire house.

Setting a budget is a first step in saving money. Decide how much money you have to freely spend on the project and the areas that are a priority. If you have to choose between one room over another, consider going for efficiency instead of increasing the space or changing the complete look of the room. This will often save you money, and you get both rooms done during the remodeling event. Do a little reorganization in the rooms, add a few new colors and some decorations, and you will have a new space.

Natural light will not only save money on the utility bill, but it will also help make a room seem larger. You don't need a lot of windows in the room to get this effect. Determine the areas of the room where most people sit, and add the windows at these areas. Picture windows in a living room or dining room, along with drapes or flowing curtains, can add beauty along with making the room seem like an opened space.

Search through the consignment stores and second hand stores in your area. You can find furniture and decorations that others have tossed aside at a fraction of the cost of something new. You can also find remodeling materials, such as carpet and tile, at some stores that remove these items from homes that are being torn down or remodeled. Some people will donate excess items to these stores.

Doing the work yourself can save quite a bit of money. You will also be able to get exactly what you want in the time frame that you want. Remodeling companies sometimes charge for every little fee, and there are some that might charge the same amount for the estimate even if the job didn't take as long as first thought. Completing the project yourself will give you a way to make sure everything is done to your satisfaction, and you won't have strangers in the home doing work.

American Sniper Review

From director Clint Eastwood comes “American Sniper,” starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, whose skills as a sniper made him a hero on the battlefield.

But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter.

Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield, and as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world.

Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.


“American Sniper” Blu-ray Combo Pack & Two Disc DVD contains the following special features:
· One Soldier’s Story: The Journey of American Sniper
Join director Clint Eastwood and his creative team, along with
Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller, as they overcome enormous creative and
logistic obstacles to make a film that brings the truth of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle's story to the screen.
· Making of American Sniper 

My Thoughts:
First let me say that I am from an Air Force Town, we are the home of Seymour Johnson Air Force Base and this past weekend we had two things going on.  One my birthday was Sunday and We had an air show featuring The Thunderbirds.  As you can imagine I spent my birthday weekend watching The American Sniper and watching the Air Show.  In the air show they do the Tora! Tora! Tora! and it is a reenactment of the Pearl Harbor bombing, if you ever get a chance to see an sir show they rock.  While it is very entertaining, it is also very educational on what happens when our men and women are in battle.  Just let me say that when the F-15 starting shooting bombs out over us it was very scary. 

Now, I said all of that to tell you about this movie "The American Sniper".  Because I am NOT Military and I have never been put on the front lines I can only imagine what it is like to be there and see what these military men and women are going through and what they are thinking about.  While I was watching, I almost felt like I was there with Them and experiencing some of the same things they were.  Don't get me wrong, These young men and women rock in my book because they are doing something I was never willing to voluntarily sign up for myself.  Time Warner did a great job bringing the feeling of these men and especially bring Chris Kyle's story to life. 

This is a great movie and really made me want to Thank every military person I meet, and this Film shows just how hard it is to decompress after coming home from any war.   We hear of Our Military suffering from PTSD after watching this it is much easier to understand.  Even though this is Hollywood I felt it was a great rendition of what really happens or happening in Iraq. 

On May 19th you have your opportunity to buy your own copy of American Sniper on DVD, or if you are a fan of Southern Mom of 4 you have a chance of winning a copy today.  First like us on Facebook and leave a comment letting us know you did, Also leave a comment letting us know who your Military heroes are.  My Dad is definitely mine but I have a lot of Uncles, cousins, and grand parents that were Military and I have the up most respect for them.
