Tip of the Day #71: Buy Meat in Bulk

Save money AND space by purchasing ground meat in bulk. Take the meat out of the package and put it in a plastic freezer bag, then flatten it out with a rolling pin. Plus, the flattened-out meat will thaw quicker.

Tip of the Day #69: Ironing Tips

IRONING TIPS: If you have a hair straightener/flat iron, this is the BEST way to iron between buttons on shirts since it can be so difficult at times!
Also, if you are in a hurry and notice a few wrinkles on your clothes, use a straightener as well to iron out the problems! :)

Tip of the Day #68: Microfiber Mops

Invest in a microfiber mop! Vacuums and brooms just move debris and dust around. Not only are the cloths washable and reusable, but they pick up even the smallest particles and can fit under tables and dressers. They are especially amazing for pet hair!

Tip of the Day #67: Summer Months w Kids

With the summer months upon us, it is especially important that children continue to stretch their minds and learn. Make a 'Summer Challenge' calendar with a different activity each day for your kiddos to do--they do not have to be difficult, but it allows for your child to think and be proud of their accomplishments! Once they complete the task, have them put a stick over the activity! As you can see, my daughter likes to do more than one a day! Lol
