Household tip to bring a little sunshine to your life

In case you’re feeling a little down, a quick ‘n cheap pick me up — wash your shoes.

I noticed how dingy my slippers looked the other day so threw them and a few pairs of shoes in the washer.  Goodness, they’re sparkling!  Feels like I had a shoe shopping spree yet didn’t swipe the credit card once.  I actually caught myself smiling at them yesterday.  Combine that with stumbling upon a bar that has free Foosball, being entertained for six hours exploring the city with our only expense a couple of sandwiches [appreciation for friends who enjoy walking, architecture, and sunshine!],  dinner paid for with a gift certificate, and entry to an improv show in exchange for videography services, it was a frugal girl’s dreamday.
