Budget Mondays

May 19, 2014

Monday – 5/19/2014

It’s Monday – a painful day for most people, yours truly included. Sometimes it is made even more painful as we remember just how much money we ended up spending over the weekend.


It’s one word that can make people cringe, angry and sad all at the same time, a rare occurrence indeed. There are plenty of reasons for this – people are told at work that their budgets are being cut, their ideas cannot be funded because they are not in the budget, and in our personal life, our budgets don’t usually quite match up to our desires.

Long summer days are great for entertaining, relaxing, or just enjoying some free time and nice weather with friends and family. No matter how long the days are, however, the days eventually turn to evening, and while daytime entertaining is nice, evening festivities also play a large role in summer time activities. Lighting can be a hindrance to outdoor activities, and having lighting professionally installed can be very expensive.

So let’s look at a few DIY tips that can be used to brighten up your yard.

Remember to always be careful and consult a professional if you have any doubts or questions.

1) Painted Cans
2) Wine Bottle Torches
3) Glowing Orbs
4) Paper Lanterns
5) Hanging Tea Lights
