Grease is the Word!

Here's a quick tip to start your Monday off.  When you get a grease stain on your clothing, rub some dish soap into the stain and wash it out.  The dish soap is made to break grease down from dishes and pots and pans, and works amazingly well on clothing as well!

Solution for Kid’s Messes

If your kids are anything like mine, they constantly leave things out.  No matter how many times I say "Don't leave your things out" it happens time and time again.  One day I saw something similar to this little project, and I've been meaning to do it for months! It's finally here, and you can download the files to make…

Tackle the Paper Clutter

It's a well documented fact that I can't stand paper.  I was super thrilled this year, when my daughter's school said they were going to try to eliminate the amount of paper that comes to the house and send all announcements through email!  Yippie!!  Then my daughter's class took it one step further and created a blog to give homework…
The One Hour Cleanup

The One Hour Cleanup

Every Saturday I like to tackle an area of the house that has become neglected.  It happens to the best of us.  It starts out small, just a dumping ground to get the room picked up when someone is coming over, or maybe even just to get it picked up right before bed.  You think, oh I'll just fix it…

Dove Visible Care Body Wash Review

I live in Utah. It is dry. It is EXTREMELY dry. Not a day goes by that I don't need to put lotion on my hands. It's crazy. So when I was asked to review the Dove® VisibleCare™ Renewing Crème Body Wash, I was pretty excited to try it. Since it has to do with cleaning (your body) I thought…

To Do What?

I consider myself a fairly organized person.  Here is where my systems get messed up though.  When I'm so overwhelmed with tasks, I just don't know where to begin.  I've tried to work my to do list, when it gets too big though I have a tendency to ignore the list and then just approach tasks as they come in.…

How To Organize Your Closet

How To Organize Your Closet

This is the constant battle, isn't it?  Every time you want to clean up in a hurry, everything ends up getting shoved in a closet.  It's also the running gag on many a television show or movie.  You open the closet and everything inside comes pouring out.  Even super organized Monica on Friends had a secret messy closet!  So how…
