I'm an avid DIYer, mostly because I love having the ability to add a personal touch to something in our home but also because it's cost-effective, and fun. Entertaining can be costly especially when you're serving wine. Riesling is my favourite and averages about $14.95 per bottle. bottling riesling at Vin Bon costs $5.92 per bottle (case of 26) for a savings of $243.70.Read More

Growing up I shared a room, first with my brother and then with my sister. When she moved out, I was 20, Anthony and I had already bought our first home, but it wouldn't be ready for 18 months. Since I knew we were going to need a bedroom set, I decided to splurge on a set from The Brick. The sleigh bed I always dreamed of. I spent almost as much on a new mattress set from Sears.
