Getting married is absolutely one of the happiest times and events of your entire life. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most expensive.

It's been a very rainy week here in the Chicago area, and it got me thinking...rainy days always get me down.  I'm a girl from sunny Southern California...we don't get much water falling from the sky, and I really don't mind.  (Bedsides the drought part, we really need to figure that out.)  
Anyway, I've been spending time in Chicago recently and it's been super rainy.  "Where's the sunshine?!" But I always have to remind myself, "we're not in Kansas (CA) anymore!"

So, what do you do when a rainy day is getting you down?

5 Ways to get Free Redbox rentals, and never pay for one again!

Remember Blockbuster?  Hollywood Video? Movie Gallery?
Friday nights were family movie nights at our house, so we would run to the rental store, sort through multiple options of VHS tapes to find the one we wanted and then we paid $4.99 for a 3-night rental on a New Release Movie. Obviously those days are long gone and now we have awesome subscription services like Netflix, Amazon Video (Prime and Firestick), Hulu, etc.  But if you want new release physical DVD's or Blue-Ray Discs, you head to REDBOX! 

And for a brand new DVD release, you're now only paying $1.50 a night!  Can't get much cheaper than that!  

Oh wait...Yes you can!!

Headlight Restoration - D.I.Y.

Do your headlights date your car?  They're dingy and dirty-looking and make your car look older than it is?  You wash them and they start to look new again, only to dry and go back to foggy?  Ours did! And we tried all the D.I.Y. remedies...to no avail. 

  • Dish Soap- Check...didn't work.
  • Scrubbing with a toothbrush...Nada!
  • Washing the car...duh, we tried this, but...back to foggy!
  • Toothpaste as a cleaner...Ok, with search results and the help of Pinterest, we found some people use toothpaste. Weird, we know, but of course we tried! And sadly, STILL nothing! Maybe a bit cleaner, but that didn't help with the cloudy or fogginess. 

Local service stations wanted to charge $100 to do "headlight restoration" for us...and we came close to just caving in and paying it.
