How I got a Rachel Ray Cookware set for $17

A few weeks ago, I ordered a 10 piece Rachael Ray Hard Anodized Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware Set with the orange handles. This set normally sells anywhere between $159 and $179 for the complete set. After checking out Amazon and a few other websites, I decided to purchase from Kohl’s. At Kohl’s, with all their holiday discounts, I was able to get the set for $129 including shipping (as an added bonus, I also received $30 in Kohl’s cash for making this purchase). After receiving the set and going through all the pieces, I decided that I really didn’t need two of the pots (a 6 quart stock pot and a 1.5 quart sauce pan). I started wondering what I could do. I really liked the pans and it was the pans that I mainly needed.

I decided to look on Amazon and Ebay to see how much the 6 quart stock pot was selling for. I couldn’t find this particular size on either site. I did find an 8 quart oval stock pot which was selling for $89 on Amazon. So I thought, let’s try to sell both items on Ebay. If they don’t sell, I’ll just keep them. I listed the 6 quart pot for $69 with a Buy It Now price of $80 and listed the 1.5 quart sauce pan with a starting bid of $22.

To my surprise, the 6 quart stock pot sold within 4 days with the Buy It Now price of $80 and the 1.5 quart pan went the whole seven day listing period and after 5 bids, sold for $30 bringing my total earnings for the two pieces to $110. Here are the pieces I got for the remaining $17:

· 3-quart covered saucepan with lid
· 3-quart/10-inch covered sauté
· 8-inch French skillet
· 10-inch French skillet

The set features soft-grip bright orange silicone handles are oven-safe to 400 degrees F - a great buy!

Upcycled Domino Tile Pendant Necklace

My metals/jewelry making class that I am taking has inspired to create some really cute upcycled/recycled tile art necklaces .  I was at the thrift shop last month and I picked up this tin full of Dora the Explorer domino type pieces.  They were in great shape and made of a nice heavy filled plastic/resin with white on one side and Dora characters on the other side.  I sat them aside until this past weekend when I thought – I need to do something with those cute little pieces.  By nature, I’m a big recycler.  I love taking something old and making it new.  I’ve seen these necklaces all over Etsy so I thought I would give it a try.  So, while hubby was out and about, I plopped down at the kitchen table and began creating. I had already downloaded a few art sheets specifically designed for domino size pieces from Etsy (these sheets are really inexpensive). You don’t have to use these, I just chose to.  Leading up to this project, I had already bought jewelry bales, jump rings, and c

Spring Mantel Nook; Trash to Treasure

I have been jealous of all the cute spring mantels popping up lately.  So last night, I went to the thrift shop and started looking for treasures to turn my mantel into something special. You see, I have more than a mantel, I have a nook …..a deep alcove to house a television.  The problem – I didn’t like the TV being up that high…so, I have a nook. What’s in my nook?  Take a look Tall glass jar – thrift shop.  Eggs that are inside are treasured eggs that the girls made when they were little. Chalkboard plate – just made it today!  I bought the white plate at Target on clearance and used chalk board spray paint. Little picture above the plate – thrift shop! Little dragon fly candle holder – thrift shop. Topiary – something I already owned. White candle stick – it used to be gold and I spray painted it antique white.  It was another thrift shop find. Little clay chick tea light candle holder –you guessed it, thrift shop. All the bottles are thrift sh

25 Things you might not think to bring Cruise Packing List

  Tendering away from the Carnival Spirit Since I just came off my third cruise, I thought I would put together a little cruise packing list.  I was searching on the internet and I came across so many sites that tell you to pack things like bra and underwear – well duh, I don’t need help remembering to pack things like that!   So, this is not your normal cruise packing list, this list contains stuff you might not think to bring.  Please feel free to add anything else you can think of to the comments section of the post.  1.      Walkie Talkies – since you won’t be using your cell phone on the cruise, these would have been invaluable to bring.  Notice I said ‘would have been.’ We were cruising with some friends and there were times that we wanted to get in touch with them, but we had to rely on pure luck to just “run into them . ”    2.      Power Strip – there was only one outlet to plug two items into (and it wasn’t in the bathroom). 3.      Jeans – even if you are go
