    Leslie McLea: Simplicity, even a novice can do this one. Get three boxes, large roll of brown paper, tape sissors, wrap the boxes. I would either roll some tape under each box to hold in place or use some fishing line tied around to keep all the boxes together. I tould...  more

      Sylvia Todd Amen! I don't really like it when our house gets too untidy. We also intentionally don't overdo it with cleaning either, because we don't want our life to be consumed with that, but when it starts getting to cluttered, I have a harder time thinking clearly ;).
    • Leslie McLea
      Leslie McLea Me too. Our apt is lived in, and since Asher does most of the cleaning, I have to wait on him. I do my part and together our home is clean, no cob webs hanging from the ceiling LOL. A week ago, not sure if you saw my post, but I cleaned out my makeup cont...  more

      Sylvia Todd Haha, we are not super spontaneous either :). Being out in the country, we typically only go out once a week, and plan our week to get all our errands and such done that day. One good thing is that neither of us really make a mess in the first place, so k...  more

      Sylvia Todd Oh, sweet idea, Leslie! Also, have never seen those dehumidifier buckets either, which seem handy! How do they work? Do they fill up with water and you empty them, or is it something you have to re-buy?
      • June 4
    • Leslie McLea
      Leslie McLea Nope, they are pre=contained. You take the plastic piece off first, under the plastic piece is a silver tear off sheet. DO NOT take off the white sheet that is how the moisture is absorbed. There are severl pellets on the top, as this product absorbs thro...  more

      Sylvia Todd Very cool! We do have "real" dehumidifier, but there are some areas that just naturally gather a lot of moisture, like the bathroom. Minimally, it might help take up some of the slack :)!
    • Leslie McLea
      Leslie McLea Yep. Since we live in the basement, there are a lot of places. Ashers closet is so damp it rusted his tool box. I put the date on the container to see how long it lasts just so I get an idea. You cant lose for $1.00.

    Leslie McLea: You cant even tell what is in this plastic basket can you ?
    • June 4
  • Leslie McLea
    Leslie McLea: Can you see in the bottom of this basket? Take a good look, there are two dehumidifier buckets in the basket. With the other beach items, the moisture still has pleanty of room to reach the buckets.

    Leslie McLea: I have to go backward to get to the beginning. So this is the finished project. It is on the right, on the left is just the Dehumidifer bucket. So which would you rather look at?
