After leaving home at the ripe old age of 18, straight into unemployment and with only a mattress and television to call my own I had to learn to live quite frugally. The problem is that I find it quite hard to kick the habit (but having an Ikea in Bristol helps!). Over the years I have used bricks under railway sleepers to make a television stand, I’ve used wooden pallets as a base for my bed and saved as many jam-jars as humanly possible. I hope the following suggestions are helpful and if you add any new ones to the comment section I’ll update once in a while to keep it the ultimate guide! Keep all of those small ‘wet-wipe’ ...

I have just been having a general look around Dooyoo and have come across the category about storage ideas. As this was a problem to me when I first moved into the house I now occupy I thought I’d pass on the solutions I came up with. I thought I’d split them into the rooms where I have used them, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they couldn’t be used elsewhere of course. They aren’t necessarily cheap either but, as with most DIY, they can be done more cheaply or more expensively depending on your taste and pocket!

I am rather pleased with my bedroom. It is predominantly cream and white with light-toned woods. It isn't frilly, but with generous amounts of creamy light material on the windows and other furnishings with interesting textures such as silky or sheepy feels (sheepskin), it is not austere but cosy. The whole thing took two years to do on a budget. Now that I had finished, I decided to treat myself to some nice accesories for it. Two of the things I tried to obtain were containers for cotton wool face pads and buds. Mundane, I know, but I'm a great believer in concentrating my time and money in the things I use the most, rather than what another might ... Read the complete review

If you live in a small property you will probably get frustrated at either lack of space and / or the resulting untidiness. I have put together some ideas therefore for making better use of the space you do have. Items in open storage look best when placed in size or colour order. A mish-mash of colours can never look as neat as colour coded. By putting all red or blue items together you immediately make the place look tidier. It is often unnecessary to buy containers to store items as all sorts of shapes and sizes of containers are simply thrown away every day. Boxes, large glass jars, plastic cases, sweet jars. All go to the dump if not ... Read the complete review
