I am not sure what other dogs are like, but ours is a bit messy with his food and water bowls. After years of cleaning up drips from our tile and/or wood floor, I finally have a solution. I have been eyeing some dog bowls and rubber trays from both Ballard Designs and Crate and Barrel. I pinned these to my Kitchen and Laundry Room Accessories board on Pinterest click here to see more.

Each of the above rubber trays is in the $25-30 price range. This isn't really that much money, but it is more than I have been willing to let go of for this purpose. A little over a week ago, my family and I were shopping in Lowes (this is a weekly and sometimes daily event for us). I rounded a corner and on the end cap display spotted this boot tray with a price tag for less than $5. This tray is a bit larger than I had planned, but so far it is working out just fine.
Along the lines of small upgrades, I found this new dish soap dispenser at Target. Right now Target is featuring "Method" products with "Orla Kiely" designs. I am a fan of both, so I couldn't pass up the dish detergent. This detergent has a great smell and gives my counter a little pep.
It truly is the little things that make me happy!
