Description: We were inspired by other Expedit bed hacks, specifically this one and decided to make a Queen Platform bed. My daughter moved into an apartment and we needed to have more storage as well as a nice size bed.
We were very excited that we (two females without any experience) could create this bed.

For most of my life I did not think of myself as creative at all. Then, many years ago, I started a greeting card company, despite that I had rarely purchased or sent greetings cards.

As some parts I am still unsure what top put (as I am too concerned with the plants I am placing) our neighbor gave us their old Ikea polycarbonate cabinet that has been with them since 2007. The polycarbonate backing was already removed from the carcass.
This month’s challenge comes from Gwendolyn Pearce, who would rather be doing almost anything else than buying a car. Each month, we’ve been giving you financial challenges. Big or small, that’s up to you. But we believe that exercising these different financial skills will help to open up new possibilities of earning and saving.
When we take on projects that don’t feel right, we’re stressed.
When we agree to another coffee date, we run out of time.

Don’t spend a second worrying about what kind of financial success someone else has achieved. Be happy for them, but don’t waste even an ounce of your energy using it as a benchmark.

What if learning wasn’t confined to a rigid program in a university? What if you could begin learning now, without going back to school?
