My New Pull-out Drawers (in my kitchen) :)



You knew what I meant, didn't you! My fabulous, hunky husband made these drawers for me after hearing me whine about how I could never find anything!!! Seriously, it freed up space in an amazing way once he installed these. The cool thing is that it cost him less than $75 for this project! My love language is gifts and he has found a way to make me happy at last!

Wow those are awesome drawers! Where did JM find the plans?? I want Ryan to build me some too! The oatmeal I wrote about was pretty good, but I think that the recipes from www.hillbillyhousewife.com were better. The apple seemed over-cooked for my taste. We typically nuke the oatmeal with water instead of using the slow cooker and it turns out great. I add a little bit of my coffee creamer (flavored) to sweeten and cool it down for the kids and they LOVE it.

I actually "made up" the plans for those. It really wasn't hard once I figured out a few basic things (what kind of joints to make, how to put in the drawer slides and mount them, etc.) It helped that I had a professional cabinet maker in our church show me some that he had made. And you can't see it, but the $75 was for two cabinets of drawers (the second has two bigger drawers instead of three), not just that first one. The second cabinet is behind that first one.

Oh. And I am only considered hunky AFTER I have swept the floor and cleaned up after my projects. :-)

JM: LOL. Wow, I am really impressed!

Desiree: Wow, 23 pounds is awesome! I have just started but I need to lose approximately 30 pounds (and probably more). Did you know that we don't have the super triples/doubles at Albertsons anymore? The last one was last year sometime--I think last summer. My Kroger only doubles up to $.50 too. :( I know that you know to shop the clearance at Walmart (& use those q's on the trial size!). Hmm, I wonder if your Kroger has the same deals as mine. What is your zipcode?

Also, I got an MRI today of my foot. I will go back to the doctor in 2 weeks to find out if I need surgery--please pray that I will not!

I will be praying Nickie for your foot. That is crazy!

Let me know if you have anymore advice on the grocery thing. I really need some help that way. I need some motivation because I have all of the coupons for every week but I am not cutting them out-just collecting :(

I think the thing that hinders me is that I really relied on my list to know what to look for. 72501 is the zip here.

Have a great day!
