Ask Fab Frugal Jane

Having been a contributor on yahoo answers, and an expert author for ezinearticles.com, I'm very excited to be able to start answering your questions right here on my own web site!

creator and editor of home-remodeling-decorating.com

In order to help me, help you get the best answer for your questions, it's better to give some details, and if possible upload a photo. For example: if your question is as short as "what color do I paint my bedroom?", that's a little too vague.

Tell me a little about your room and the things you need to keep, plus what you want to change. It also helps to know your budget, or any design challenges the room has.

Suggested length for questions is at least one paragraph, but feel free to send in several paragraphs. Your family and friends can also add their comments and suggestions once your question is published, so you can get more feedback.

Your questions can also benefit future readers who are in similar situations.
