Curbside Chaos

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done. for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love to visit Curbside Chaos. They have this excellent little tool that tells you exactly what kind of bulb to plant based on where you live and when you want the bulb to bloom. Since I am gardening handicapped, this makes things sooo much easier! I chose that I wanted a bulb to bloom in April and since I live in Northwest Louisiana, my options were Chionodoxa, Crocus, Muscari or Daffodils. The Crocus was my favorite! The Garden Guru guide is really simple to follow. Just choose your country, pick your location in that country, check the type of bulb you want to grow, and then check out the planting guide that shows you how to plant your bulb.

The great yard makeover is complete and you can visit Curbside Chaos to see Ruth's yard makeover. Be sure and check out the video of Taniya Nayak and the makeover process. If I won a $5000 yard makeover, I would be in hog heaven! The first thing I would do is purchase a nice set of lawn furniture. I would then work on the landscaping to make everything beautiful! 


If you are on Twitter, every tweet that includes #CurbsideChaos, "Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done." will donate $1.00 do Rebuilding Together- the nation's leading nonprofit working to preserve affordable homeownership and revitalize communities. 


Be sure to visit to learn more about the woman that you relate to and get great ideas on which bulbs to plant to help keep pesky animals from destroying you yard!

They have plenty of holiday gifts to choose from. The great thing is that they also offer great prices. To be honest, I have never used layaway but it sounds like a pretty sweet deal! For instance, I would put something like this TV that is almost $400 on it....

Your purchase has to be at least $300 so it's perfect for big ticket items. Another great thing is that they offer a free layaway. And also, right now, if you put anything on layaway, you have a chance to get the remainder of your purchases payed off during Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway! There is a new winner every week in every single store until November 17th. That's a lot of chances to win. Here are the dates for the giveaways.

How awesome would it be to win and get your purchases for free!  You could end up getting some pretty big ticket Christmas items. I know that during the holiday cruch time, everyone could use a little extra money. If you are already going to be purchasing these items, you might as well put them on layaway at Kmart, just so that you have the opportunity to enter this great giveaway. You never know how much money you could end up saving in the long run!
