  2. I love your tips. I really liked the 31 DIY tips. This sounds somewhat contradictory, but my husband and I are spending so much on cabinet refinishing for our kitchen that we need some budget-friendly ideas for our bathrooms and rooms. Do you have any posts for bedroom ideas for kids?

  3. Thanks Silas and Grace for this useful post. I love to decorate my home with low cost and beautiful things. For this, I have bought Himalayan salt lamps and tea light holders. These are not just cheap but also very beautiful. Lamps just make my home look so beautiful with their subtle glow. You can visit the given website to know more about these lamps and tea light holders.

  4. I enjoyed you helpful ideas and money saving tips… I save a lot of things for what can it become to recycle paper goods, plastics bottles etc… An bottle can be covered with stripes of paper or white paper sack, glue scrunch then cover , then with strips of copy paper to make a Christmas tree .
    Old socks are so valuable recycle to mittens , use the cuff on a sleeve or extend other socks, sew the bad away make furniture polish mitt, window cleaning mitt, the best is sew the sock toe ,cut off holes, fill with rice , tie off for rice heat pack, heat 40 seconds… The best rubber bands are discarded support hosie, cut them 1 inch across and stretch , presto the best no. Sticky rubber band for years.
    Collar, cuffs gone bad, remove it , turn it over sew it back in place.. Take collar, cuffs off other shirts and buttons, you don’t wear and reset,on one you love. Make a pillow out of your old skirts, and a great pillow from your husbands less worn denim shirts leaving the pockets on for the Remotes , phone etc… What can it Become before throwing out is my lifestyle… Love your ideas that save and refurbish all kinds of life style..

  5. Thanks Silas and Grace for sharing such an amazing article. I love to embellish my home with new and creative things, but at affordable price. I always consider price with product quality. That’s why I have cheapest and quality things in my home . I got salt lamp beauties from saltean to embellish my home that make my home look incredible and gorgeous.

  6. It is Actually a very nice name! If you like foxes, you could consider moving to Colliers Wood…. here foxes are chasing people;-) They are looking for food and are everywhere;-) Regards, Marge

  7. Hi there…you do have some great ideas and I’m going to put them to fruition now and when I relocate next year. That will prove even more helpful. I’m 57, and I’ve been in business myself. I was just wondering why you chose the name, “Chasing Foxes.” Has it deterred some from visiting your site in thinking something else? Just curious. Keep the ideas coming ??Thank you!

    • Thanks so much Margarite! And we chose it because it’s like chasing after the better things in life and hunting after what we want most. Also.. we love foxes. 🙂

      And I don’t think the name has turned people away from my blog, but you never know!
