During the fall and spring semesters, I don't have the opportunity to tackle these types of larger projects. (Next up is painting the girls' bedrooms. We're currently debating the merits and drawbacks of various paint chips with our five-year-old, who's convinced that it would be lovely to paint her bedroom a shade of pink that would make Pepto Bismol blush.)
In the interim, I'm finding that little changes to our house can make a big difference, too. For example, I recently bought an inexpensive oil and vinegar bottle to dispense my dish detergent. Nice, isn't it?
Have you done something in your house -- whether large or small -- that's made a big difference to you?
