I don't know exactly how much they cost, but we purchased two battery operated lights from Walmart that turn on by pushing the light. We added one to the wall in each of our closets. They are about six inches in diameter. Great for helping one to see inside the cabinet.

DH put shelves in our kitchen cabinets, the cabinet above the TV, and one in the bathroom. He had the wood already, so it didn't cost anything but his time. This made our storage so much more usable!

Brought my sewing machine along on this trip. Replaced the annoying metal mini blind with a curtain. The blinds are impossible to keep clean!

Not enough outlets near the kitchen counter. And the toaster has an impossibly short cord! So HD installed this outlet strip on the underside of the counter. Not hard to tie into the outlet near the sink.

Fabulous bent lamination coat hooks made by my DH. We don't travel with anything on them. We've never had a problem with them not holding tight to the wall, even with heavy fall coats. He also made one with one hook.

trudinator, I really like the outlet strip idea. We have the same kitchen configuration and the location of the factory installed receptacles is not ideal.

Be cautious with your curtain next to the stovetop. The factory uses metal blinds because of a fire hazard.

Love this one. Our kitchen has one (1) receptacle - mounted underneath the microwave. You have to nearly stand on your head to see it and get something plugged into it. And, best part, I have one of these outlet strips laying out in my barn. Just hope it isn't too long for the space - don't think it is the kind you can shorten.

Thanks for sharing
Brian

I pull the curtain all the way to the left and tie it back before cooking. Keeps the curtain clean as well as being safer while cooking.

Easy and cheap mod.. We took a remnant piece of laminate and glued it to the side of the pantry cabinet. Cleans up a lot easier than the wood surface!

A baby latch keeps my outdoor fridge closed during travel. It doesn't help the calamity that is found inside each time, but at least it doesn't open and let the cool out any more.
