Tips and Tricks!

these dont have to be wedding related. lets share our "duh!!!!" tips and tricks (obviously pinterest inspired, bc who really thinks of these things on their own!?)


my favorite is probably an over the door shoe hanger in my pantry! it was my best pinterest find that i actually did. it now houses our granola bars, oatmeal packets, crackers, seasoning packets, etc so we have more room for the things that actually need to stay in the box! DH is notorious for leaving one of something in a box for months, so this totally eliminates "his" clutter. here it is in action:


these dont have to photo 3409699-1we also put snacks toward the bottom so our 1 year old can choose what she wants to eat! totally beats the guessing game :)


another fav would be to put your necklace through a staw so it doesnt tangle when traveling. DUH! idk why i dont think of these things. this is actually how i transported my wedding necklace bc it tangled in its own box! (this is the pinterest picture)
To avoid tangles when you travel, slip your necklace through a drinking straw.


share yours!

the minivan express round photo 3411362-1the minivan express round trip ticket is a Christmas tradition to add.  the blog gives you the tickets to print out.  get your kids ready for bed and have them put on their pjs and while mom is doing this, dad is in the kitchen popping popcorn and getting drinks for everyone.  dad then takes the individual bags of popcorn and the drinks to the family car or minivan.  when the kids get to their beds they find a the tickets on their pillows.  mom and kids head to minivan and dad punches the tickets and allows entrance.  then the family is off to look at Christmas lights.

for the woman who photo 3411364-1 for the woman who carries everything in their purse and is tired of all the weight.  get a makeup bag or similar zipper container and put some items you like to have on hand but dont have to carry on you all the time in the bag and keep it in your car.

I love the swimming noodle one! We cut a slit in the noodles length wise since they are hallow in the middle, and attached them to sharp furniture (marble and rawd iron wine rack to be specific) as a baby protector, but I never would have though of using them as bed bumpers! I'm Gona try that when we switch out of the crib, hopefully when she's 10 ;)

Let me just say that babysitter box is perfect. I work with special needs children now so I have to be really careful but before I worked for the government I was a nanny. Id have the children from 7am to 4pm and its really frustrating when the parents think of you as a daycare center instead of a nanny.
