Review ~ Natural House Probiotic Cleaning Products

natural house

Natural House Probiotic Cleaning Products First of all, how cute are these little probiotic creatures?!  Okay, had to get that out of the way... Cleaning is something I am not a fan of.  I love having a clean house, but actually doing the work is such a drag to me.  Especially since it doesn't seem to last long.  It never fails that when the house is super clean, someone will mess it up … [Read more...]

Review ~ Primo Water Portable Dispenser

900131-lowres-silo

Primo Water Portable Dispenser We are huge water drinkers in this house.  Especially myself!  Ever since I was diagnosed with kidney stones in my teens, I have to drink water nonstop to avoid issues.  I am also kind of snobby in the water department.  :/  I like my bottled water!  Our tap water is okay to drink, but the bottled stuff just tastes so much better to me. We currently have a big … [Read more...]

Review ~ Design with Vinyl Wall Decals

tree with two birds

Cats - Wall Decal and Tree with 2 birds I was born into a family of artists and lack all of their abilities.  It literally skipped me.  My mom is an amazing painter, drawer, sculptor, seamstress, etc.  My son is also freakishly good with art.  Then there is me.  I would say I have an "eye" for it, but really cannot produce anything myself. These adhesive wall decals are perfect for me!  They are … [Read more...]

Hoover T-Series™ WindTunnel® Pet Rewind Bagless Upright Model# UH70210 I was so excited to hear a knock on my door.  When I opened it, I saw this... With a house full of pets and kids, vacuuming is our number one chore.  We have 5 rescue dogs.  Four of these little guys are breeds that don't shed--the Shih-Tzu and three Maltese.  But our Rat Terrier makes up for all them!  He has that … [Read more...]

Beat SAD with a Verilux HappyLight 6000 Energy Lamp

HappyLight Single.tif

Verilux HappyLight 6000 Energy Lamp I truly believe that I am solar-powered.  I thrive in sunlight and become depressed and useless without it.  As soon as the seasons change and the daylight hours shorten, I struggle with daily tasks and obligations.  I jokingly say that I should have been a bear.  I kick into hibernation mode as soon as it drops below 70 degrees.  I have seen lamps to fight … [Read more...]

2917_8588_2011_09_02_10_46_56

Appliance Art Peel & Stick Instant Chalkboard My kitchen is a total disaster.  I guess this is to be expected as I am a single mother of two...  That doesn't mean I have to accept it!  I am on a mission to get organized!  My kids love the show "Good Luck Charlie" and I often get sucked in to watching the Disney show too.  Their house on the show is really something.  It's kind of messy but … [Read more...]

Farberware Coffee and Tea Maker

coffee maker

Farberware 12-Cup Programmable Coffee and Tea Maker Life without coffee would be impossible for me.  I don't usually have more than 2 cups a day, but still, without those couple cups, I just don't know what I would do with myself.  And, because I load my coffee with cream and sugar and therefore calories... I've recently discovered the joy of drinking tea.  I usually drink tea plain so it's … [Read more...]

Purina Pet Gear Review

Review ~ Chinet

casual_family_alt

Chinet So, we have all these munchies, what are we going to eat them on!?  Chinet is an excellent option if you are looking for disposable tableware.  I can remember Chinet from my childhood, but I was shocked to learn that they have been around since the 1930s!  And they are still made in America and now using environmentally-friendly products. There is nothing worse than eating on a flimsy … [Read more...]

Minky Couture - Minky Blankets - Paris:  Black and Teal Well, Fall is already in the air!  It's soon approaching...or maybe even already here.  It sure feels like it today.  What a bitter-sweet feeling because Fall is my favorite season, but I kind of despise Winter.  So, we all know that comes quickly on Fall's heels.  I can already feel my hibernation-mode kicking in. We have a fireplace in … [Read more...]

Oreck U7200 Vacuum for only $275!

55-2-20110831123831-oreck

For the last year or so, cleaning my house has been really unrewarding.  Which, is just depressing if you think about it... I mean, why bother?  But, that is not the right attitude to have either... The problem for me was, I had disgusting carpeting.  It had been tainted by pets so many times that all my vacuuming and steam-cleaning efforts were truly moot.  I just couldn't get rid of that … [Read more...]

Review ~ Tropical Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Household Traditions Powdered Laundry Detergent - 5 lb. Up until about a year ago I thought I would never even try a powdered laundry detergent.  I have a faint memory of some sort of laundry disaster from my childhood.  My Grandmother had used a powder and it ended up crusted to all of the clothes.  Gram is the laundry queen, so this was quite devastating.  Well, the powdered versions of … [Read more...]

Keep Chips Fresh with THE GRIPSTIC

5 Repurposed Home Décor Ideas
