As you know, I have been working on my office. Once of my biggest complaints was that it is super dark over in my corner. I have been looking and looking for just the right lights to go with the feel of my new space. It is super bright limey green (Spring Leaf from Glidden) and a deep dark chocolate (don’t remember the name). I wanted a couple fun lights.
So, I found this cool concrete looking wall lamp and painted it to match my walls. This is not a fabulous picture, but isn’t it a super cool effect? Plus, I can leave on my new Bright From The Start CFL bulbs and save energy, yet not have to live like a Vampire! YAY!
So, that fixed one lighting issue over near my filing cabinet, but what about the desk itself? I wanted a lamp that was useful…and I found the perfect one at my local Walmart! It is green, not the same exact green as my walls, but I think it looks great. Plus, it has a spinning organizer thing around the bottom and a gooseneck so I can aim it where I need to. Oh, it also has a super cool feature… a plug! I can plug my phone or iPod or whatever right into my lamp on my desk! Cool right? Plus, with the super long cord, I can move it around from desk to workstation with ease.

My post is all out of order, but you have to follow my ADHD mind today. I went to the Ballpark and got drenched…. then, came home and realized that this post was due TODAY! I had done all my shopping and such at Walmart
…but hadn’t compiled my thoughts into a post. Oops! I have 45 minutes to go and have to get this completed. Click the image above to see my entire trip on Google+.
Anyway, I am very happy with my new bulbs and am excited to see the savings on my power bill! According to the GE Lighting Home Savings Calculator, I will be saving $78.40 with my new CFL bulbs. That is about $6.50 per month. What could you do with an extra 6 bucks? What would you save if you switched out every bulb in your house?
Couple more things and I promise I will let you go.
