Printable Declutter Checklist for Kids Clutter

By | January 2nd, 2019|Household|

I had NO idea that such little people could accumulate so much stuff!  Every time I start decluttering my house, I get overwhelmed with my kids’ junk!  This Printable Declutter Checklist will help you to keep the kid’s clutter under control in your house. Printable Declutter Checklist The last time our family moved, was over 10 years ago and we could fit all of our belongings into a single horse trailer (a new one, just in case you were wondering about the “stuff” found in horse trailer. 😉 ) Now, that we have 3 additional kids, I can’t even imagine moving!  We have too much stuff!!  Each kid has added to our household clutter and at least once a year, I have to go through and clean and declutter my kid’s rooms and the areas of the house where they store their treasures. (Things can get a big scary!) […]

15 Resolutions Every Mom Should Make

By | January 1st, 2019|Just for Mom, Monday Motivation|

 It’s that time of year again.  We reflect on the year past and resolve to do things differently in the year to come.  This year, why not try some of these Resolutions That Every Mom Should Make.   15 Resolutions Every Mom Should Make For most of us it is the same thing every year.  A new year rolls around and we look at our life and try and find things that we can improve on for the next year.  We set goals and we try to find ways to reach our goals.   Did you know that statistics show that by the first week of February, 92% of New Year’s resolutions have already failed?  Maybe it is because we are focusing our attention on the wrong things.  Maybe we look in the mirror and try and focus on changing the things we can see instead of the things that are deep inside and hidden from view. We focus on “dusting” the things on the surface when really we need to deep clean. I’ve put together 15 resolutions every mom should make to help her be happy and ultimately healthy.  […]

Star Wars Snowflakes

By | December 19th, 2018|Christmas, Crafts/Activities, For the Boys, Holidays|

Every year our family loves to make snowflakes together. We are always on the look out for some snowflakes that are better than the average snowflakes we would normally make.  These Star Wars snowflakes are seriously the best thing ever! Star Wars Snowflakes My boys love Star Wars Crafts and Star Wars inspired recipes, so we were excited to find these creations by Anthony Herrera.  What was supposed to be about 10-20 minutes of making paper snowflakes turned into an hour or more of Star Wars snowflakes.  I finally had to  call it a night on this project because we could have gone all night and someone has to enforce bed time around here.  I know, I hate to always be the bad guy that ruins all the fun.
