Green Your Home – $50 Home Depot Gift Card Giveaway

My living room (on a good day!)

I want my home to be a warm and inviting place for visitors and a safe and healthy environment for my family. I strive to create a space like this by choosing nice furniture, minimizing clutter, using simple decorations, and always having something baking in the oven when guests arrive.

I try to keep my home naturally healthy and “green” by reusing and repurposing items. Sometimes it's small things, like making these button hair pins, other times is bigger things, like  unpluging energy-wasting appliances, repurposing furniture, or removing toxic items from my home.

I know many of you want the same things.

Today I'm partnering with the Apartment Guide blog to  give away a $50 Home Depot gift card to one of you! I know you could use that to do something lovely in your home.

Whether you're living, looking or moving, Apartment Guide offers tips on how to make your apartment greener and make the most of your space on the Apartment Guide blog.

Apartment Guide offers tips on how to make eco-friendly cleaning products and save you money, which is a favorite topic around here!

  1. Thank you for the giveaway. We are in the process of putting shelving in our basement for storage, so a GC would go towards that project.

  2. I would love to win this gift card! There are so many home improvement projects on our “to be completed” list. 🙂 Thanks for hosting!

  3. I have a bathroom that is right off my bedroom that is half torn apart. My husband has started taking apart the floor and the side molding. It is real fun watching when I take a shower that I don’t get water on the floor. This would come in handy to help with the replacement of these items. We need to replace the toilet too.

  4. Oh your living room looks so comfortable and nice ~ this would help so much with our kitchen that needs an update.

  5. We just bought our first house this summer and are trying to get all sorts of small repair projects done… this would be lovely! 🙂

  6. Thanks for the chance to win…we have several DIY projects going on and this would help considerably!

  7. I’d love to be able to give my husband this card. There’s rarely a trip to home depot where he isn’t longing for a new tool and I have to remind him of our budget. It would be so fun to say yes instead!

  8. This is the first time I have heard of Apartment Guide. Very helpful information. Thank you for this opportunity!

  9. I need to replace some of the plants that didn’t make it last year. I’m thinking orange and red lantana in the backyard.

  10. Apartment or house, keep things simple, uncluttered. Make small conversation areas, not everything need to center around the TV.

  11. My son would love this. He getting into woodworking for 4-h and this woulbe great gift for him.

  12. This would be a huge blessing. My husband was without work for most of the past 3 yrs. We just lost our home and had to move to a rental. The previous tenants smoked and we are trying to get rid of the smell and would love to paint. Thank you for the opportunity.

  13. This would be a great way to buy new energy efficient light bulbs. We are replacing them as they burn out.
