Best $15 Spent on DIY...This Month

If you're on a budget, please skip your crazy Starbucks orders this month, and run on over to the Depot (or Lowes or whatevs you got). Everyone needs to have a laser level! I bought one last weekend and in the past 10 days, I've used it a ton!

I used it to paint my groovy accent wall stripe.
I used it to rehang a curtain rod.
I used it to mount my headboard.
I used it to determine if my face was symmetrical.
It's not.

I was happy to spend this $15 because I'd been wanting one, but now that I've used it and seen it in action, I'm STOKED!

What tricks do you have up your sleeve that makes life easier? If you're looking for ideas and shortcuts, please pop over to http://www.wearethatfamily.com/ and see what Kristen has got goin' on!

So, it looks like your face was symmetrical. We have one, but I can't really say that we have actually ever used it. Maybe I should dig it out and actually take it out of the package. :o

Love the laser level.

It's also fun to use as a cat toy. LOL Big 'ole Willy actually chases the laser. Ha! He tries to climb the walls when we are using it.
