Car Upholstery Cleaner

You need three main ingredients which are cheap and easy to find to make this cleaner: Borax, soap and water. If you prefer you can add lavender essential oil to make the cleaner smell nicer. Mix and stir grated soap, boiling water and Borax (and essential oil if you intend to add) until the solution becomes foamy. Wait for the soap to dissolve in the water completely. Use this cleaning product to scrub the upholstery of your car and it will be as clean as new. (more…)

Easter Egg Hunt Tips!

Plan the best Easter Egg Hunt!My girls love Easter egg hunts! What’s not to love…it’s hide and seek with candy/prizes! Here are a few tips on how to have the best Easter Egg Hunt!

  • Get eggs! The dollar store is great for buying plastic eggs and prizes/candy. Save the eggs too…no sense in getting new eggs every year!
  • Plan for weather! Spring is a tricky time of year for weather! One minute the sun is shining and it’s 70 degrees, the next it’s raining and 50 degrees. Have a back up plan for inside in case the weather turns.


Think outside the Easter Basket!

Think outside the Easter Basket!Easter is coming! I feel like it comes earlier and earlier each year! We are not big candy people, so I am always trying to find alternatives for their baskets. Chalk, bubbles, jump ropes, and basically anything fun to play with outside are always included. The Dollar Store is great for finding stuff for Easter Baskets!

This year I wanted to try something a little different. Sure, the basket is great…but why not think outside the basket this year!? Here are some great ideas for alternative Easter baskets. (more…)

If you are a runner, read this!

Runner? Read this!I am not a runner but my friend is! When I was offered compression socks to review for a heavy discount in exchange for my honest opinion, I was going to say no. But it just so happened that my friend and runner was with me when I got the offer. Josh said “Oh I will review them for you!” (more…)

Fanny Pack is the way to go!

If you have little kids, you need this!I have been wanting a fanny pack for a while. Stop laughing and listen up! Having 3 kids ages 5 and under is not easy, especially when you are out and about. I don’t need to carry much, but the stuff I do need to carry is important! My phone, keys, money, and a diaper are the essentials right now. Having a fanny pack makes my life so much easier! I can’t wait until the spring…going to rock my fanny pack at the amusement park all season long! We are also heading to Disney in November and I plan to wear this fanny pack the whole time! (more…)

A better way to use public restrooms!

Potty seat that covers the entire toilet!  I was so excited when my first daughter became potty trained! No more diapers for her. Now, she could just go anywhere there was a restroom. Life would be so much easier! My sentiments quickly changed after her first time using a public restroom. I never knew how disgusting public restrooms really were until I was forced to let my child use it. (more…)
