Take Medicine Past Expiration Date

I have often wondered if medicine was good after it's expiration date and in fear of the unknown, I have flushed good money down the toilet!

Apparently over 20 years ago the FDA did an experiment and found that most drugs were still effective past their expiration date. It seems as though medications can be good for up to 5 years after they have expired, while retaining 90 percent of their potency!

I will still be leery, but it's good to know if your in a jam.

Freebies at Autozone

I was at Autozone the other day and they had posters all of the windows of freebies that they offer:

  1. Loan a Tool
  2. Testing; Batteries, Starters, Alternaters, Iginition
  3. Batttery Charging
  4. Check Engline light help
Now, I haven't tried any of these "freebies", so I'm not sure if there is a "catch" or not, but I thought it was worth sharing.  Good Luck!

Daily SAHM Schedule, Daily Working Mom's Schedule....

I have been asked about how I spend my days as a SAHM, and now that I am working, how I fit everything in.  Well, I have a daily schedule that I stick to 80% of the time :)

I have been doing it for so long now though that it I don't even look at it anymore. I am not constantly looking at the schedule to find out what to do next, after a couple of weeks, it just becomes second nature.

But, I do keep it posted as a reminder to fit everything and everyone in, including myself.  We all have lazy days  or off days or days that just simply take us by surprise.  But I try very hard to stick to the schedule because I just feel happier when I know that I have given my best and have attended to all areas of my life. 

This is my schedule for the days I work (which is 3 days a week):


 
 
 
 
 
 
This is my schedule for the days I stay home:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I have changed this schedule many times, until I found the right balance that works for me.  So, if this helps you in any way, that makes me happy :)

What is ebay Go Together

While I haven't used this service yet, it sounds interesting and just may be of use in the future.

If you're going to an event where 1 person is buying tickets and collecting money from others, than eBay Go Together is a great alternative to tracking down that money that is owed you.  My husband just did this a couple of months ago, he bought 6 concert tickets and then collected money from everyone else later - this way would definitely save time.

1. You find group event tickets by logging onto ebay
2. Click split with friends button
3. Invite friends via Facebook or email
4. Friends pay you through PayPal without fees
5. You can either buy the tickets before or after you receive payment from everyone - it's up to you (my personal advice, buy them after!)

Where have I been?

I went back to work!  It's been a while since I posted, I know, but I am now jumping back on!  I can't post as much as I did before because of the fact that I am working, but I promise not to abandon you for 2 months!  I am only working part time.  It' supposed to be M,T full days and 1/2 day Wednesday's but I have been working more than that, which has made transitioning to going back to work a bit hard.  However, I am getting there.  It was really tough at first.  Having not worked for 5 years and then jumping back into the corporate world was quite the 360 for me.  But I feel like I am getting my sea legs now ;)  So, thanks for sticking around and I will see more of you online soon :)

Thank You Starbucks Patron!

I went to Starbucks this morning to get a coffee.  When I pulled up to the window, the woman said "Oh, the man in front of you paid for your drink!"  I said "Oh my gosh, okay, well Thank you".  Of course the nice man that paid for my drink had already driven off.  How I would have loved to say Thank You to him - as he made my day! 

It's not often that people do random nice things for other people that they don't know.  He totally made my day and put me in the best - most giving mood :)  I then went home and started reading email and found out that today is "National be a good Neighboor Day".  That just made me that much happier!  I am always doing random nice things for my neighboors and today, I was on the receiving end - that doesn't happen that often! 

So be a good neighbor today and do something nice - Karma just may return the favor!

Ideas for de-cluttering and organizing toys


My kids….I’m sure like many others, despise picking up their toys!  For a while I tried just letting them clean up once at the end of the day.  However, I quickly realized that was not going to work!  Something always comes up and then the last thing that gets done is the cleaning, and all of sudden its day 3 and the same toys are still on the floor!  So, I decided I had enough and came up with some ideas for keeping their toys organized.
  1. Clean up one thing before moving on to the next!
  2. Keep a spot or a bin/basket in the room that they play in most so that there is always somewhere for them to put their toys.  So often kids don’t want to clean because they just don’t know where to put it.
  3. In the playroom or in their bedroom try to have different cubes for different items.  Keep all the cars in one bin, all the action figures in another, etc.
  4. Label everything – this not only help you and other parents when they come over, but it helps the little ones to recognize their words!
  5. If they decide they don’t want a particular toy then maybe it’s time to donate it or sell it and let them keep the profits to buy something they really like. 
  6. If you do end up not following rule #1, and a big mess is just waiting to be cleaned up, then help them break it down.  Kids get overwhelmed when they look at the big mess and they see no end in sight.  Say something like, pick up all the red items first and put those away and then move on to the next color or something like that.
  7. Help them understand why they need to keep it organized; so they don’t lose their toys, so no one trips, etc.
  8. Reward them for doing a good job, especially when you don’t have to remind them to do it!
  9. Model the behavior you want from them.  Show them how you keep your stuff organized and neat and it will make a big difference.
  10. Try to make it fun – set a timer and whoever gets done the quickest gets to pick what game you play next.
Of course there are days when none of the above happens, and you have to remember your own rules.  Sometimes you go to someone else’s house or see something on tv that you think would work great – give it a try.  Our kids are consistently changing and growing and we have to be flexible and adapt to their needs too.  So, if something isn’t working or you want to try something new, go for it.  Giving the kids the opportunity to use their own ideas in cleaning up and staying organized could just be the best idea!

Review & Giveaway for Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner

  • Keeps your toilet clean with just 2 sprays per day
  • Features 360 degree action sprayer that covers the complete bowl.
    • You just step on the foot pedal for 1 second
    • Refill cans last up to 30 days
  • Has a fresh clean scent that freshens the whole bathroom each time the device is activated
  • Costs $9.99 for a starter unit and $3.99 for a refill

My Experience:

It says that you should start with a clean bowl - but I didn't and guess what?  It got it clean after the first spray! It was very easy to set up.  You set the unit up on the floor next to the toilet.  You snap the can of cleaner into the unit.  You attach the action spray clip to the toilet bowl rim, step on the pedal for one second and your done! After I set it up I kept noticing it smelled like the cleaner and I asked my 4 year old if he sprayed the toilet and he said "oh yes, every time I go to the bathroom!"  So, I had to explain to him that it doesn't get done every time you go to the bathroom, just twice a day, once after your done getting ready in the morning, and once after you get ready for bed.  So, now the kids take turns, spraying the toilet.  If only all cleaning could be this fun, I would have the cleanest house on the block!

Overall, I have only been using the Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner for 3 days, but I love it! 

Disclosure:  I’m a BzzAgent and received a Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner starter kit and a few coupons,  for free to test and discuss!  If you'd like to learn more about BzzAgents and BzzCampaigns visit www.bzzagent.com.
