Thrifty Thursday – Saving on Housekeeping Using Pinterest

Are you on Pinterest yet? I won’t go through a lengthy explanation of what it is or how it works, since most people have at least heard of it. Basically, it’s like a virtual bulletin board where you can “pin” cool ideas you find around the web. These ideas can then be shared with followers and users…

Green Tip Tuesday – Holidays are Coming

So, this week we’ve been cleaning! Holidays are coming up, and one of my pet peeves is that darn cleaning smell! I hate that chemical smell, and I just hate it when I walk into someones house and smell Clorox or other cleaning products. We clean with soap and water. My girls are actually cleaning…

Aren’t they good little helpers?

The boys love to help me around the house. Usually, it’s wiping down stuff with Lysol wipes, scrubbing the toilet (why they like this, I will never know), sweeping, or vacuuming. Quick disclaimer – as nice as it sounds, I still have to go behind and clean up the mess they leave behind with their…

Discovery Doesn’t Always Make You Christopher Columbus

(Apparently this guy has never been in my kitchen!) Last night, I felt compelled to continue the organizational roll I was on by rearranging my kitchen cabinets.  Although my husband attempted to excuse himself out of my 40 day challenge (“Good luck with your project” he commented unwisely upon viewing my list), I pulled out…

Developing a Routine

I have always struggled to keep a consistent routine. However, since Peanut entered this world, keeping a routine is the one thing that has kept me from losing my sanity some days! Not only does she function better when her days are a bit regulated and predictable, but I function better too. Lately, I’ve been…

More Ways to Clean: Distilled White Vinegar

The next cleaning agent that I’m going to look at is white vinegar. White vinegar has antifungal properties, cleans glass without streaking, softens hard water, and is great for attacking offensive odors. Here are some of the ways that I use white vinegar: Bathroom Cleaner: Because it is antifungal, and a water softener, I use…
