What Goes Unnoticed…

I’ll be the first to admit; I’m not a stellar homemaker. But I should get an A for effort. Perhaps if I spent as much time cleaning as I do inventing ways to clean (not to mention spreadsheets & systems for keeping track of cleaning), my home would be better off. But alas, such is not the case. Yet something …

Susie Homemaker I am not…but that doesn’t mean I don’t try desperately to work for and with my family to keep our home clean. I’d hate to confess all the hours I spend researching cleaning methods, checklists and DIY formulas in an effort to find clean house utopia. In fact, just last month I shared on TV some of the …

Day 4 of Owning a Home: mudroom cleanup & bedroom paint

It’s Day 4 of owning our home and we’re still hard at work getting things cleaned up and painted. I’m focused on removing the wallpaper border from the mudroom, as well as debating if the color we chose for our two master bedrooms is going to work or not. The painting has started (ceilings first) and so mom and I …

Lysol No-Touch Kitchen System Review: a 3-in-1 cleaning power punch!

I feel like we’ve done a pretty good job at simplifying the cleaning systems around our house. We’ve taken out unnecessary cleaners under every sink and simply put the essentials on each floor. But the one area I’ve been left puzzled about is the kitchen… It’s been particularly unsettling to me because even though I wouldn’t consider myself a total …

Getting Kids to Clean House

In just over seven years of being a parent, I’ve learned that getting my kids to clean the house is less about them and more about me. For years, I said that it didn’t matter what they did or how they did it, as long as they were helping. But who was I kidding? After so many times of having …

It’s a scrub brush! It’s a buffer! No, it’s a Spinbrush!

This hundred degree weather has been brutal! And we’re not the only ones feeling the heat – my kids crayons have suffered an untimely death as well. Unfortunately, they decided to die slowly in my kids’ cup holder in our minivan…only to leave pools of hard, colorful wax for me to remove. We had just picked up my mom from …
