It’s not even on the menu, but I hope you can find someone to make this for you.

I thought I would talk about a DIY project that I’ve seen many times before. This project involves rain gutters and seems to be pretty simple. Of course, you may need some help cutting to size if needed but for the most part, it’s pretty straightforward and I think anyone could do it!

The Bissell CleanView is a great vacuum. I had been wanting something that would do the job of sucking up the pet hair that was getting stuck in my popcorn rug. It would annoy me to find that I would still have little stray dog hairs left behind after I finished vacuuming. I was frustrated and needed something new.
