Life should hold more for us than what the insides of our house look like. I love decorating, but I just move things around.

Moving pictures around (on walls) really makes me feel like I'm in a diff. place since I SEE things I hadn't seen for awhile.
Life's too short to get hung up on the 'have to's' – I like this quote that's on The Frugal Life News website:
“We buy things we don’t need, with money we don’t have, to impress people we don’t like.” – Mary Ellen Edmunds
How true :-)
