Cascade Clean Glass

* I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. Every single day my morning starts with me crawling out of bed and stumbling into the kitchen to grab a cup of coffee or hot tea. Before it has even finished brewing I'm pulling open the dishwasher to empty the load of dishes from the night before. It's not … [Read more...]

It got me in the mood to start my Spring cleaning which means going room by room to get rid of the clutter, dusting everything and the biggest challenge ... pulling out warm weather clothes … [Read more...]

Quickie Power Scrubber … for all the Stuff You’d Rather Not Clean


Cleaning is just one of those things in life that I have to do. I don't particularly like it but as the mom in charge around this house, cleaning is part of my job. I don't mind wiping down surfaces, sweeping or even mopping, but I loathe the tough jobs like shower scum, toilet ick and whatever that stuff is that builds up around the garbage disposal drain. Recently Quickie, the makers of innovative household cleaning tools came out with the … [Read more...]

Finish Sticky Dish Challenge & a Sloppy Joe Pasta Recipe

Sloppy Joe Pasta Recipe

Have you ever had one of those nights where you're just too tired to plan a meal or even bother going to the grocery store? That was me last week. I had about 3 of those nights right in a row which made cooking dinner quite a challenge. I was in complete lazy mode and found myself just piecing together whatever ingredients I had on hand. In most cases those meals come out just barely edible but sometimes, just sometimes I stumble onto a recipe … [Read more...]

Method recently released a limited edition designer collection that … [Read more...]

Review | Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Hoover WindTunnel Air Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner

Over the course of the six years that we've lived in our house I've found it easier and more affordable to eliminate carpeting from the rooms. While there are some disadvantages to having hardwood floors, overall, they're much easier to maintain and stand up to the messes of young children much better. However, we do still have two bedrooms that are carpeted and our son's room is the one that takes a beating when it comes to dust, dirt and … [Read more...]
