Totally awesome laundry pre-wash - not so awesome

So I heard from 2 different people that Dollar Tree had an amazing stain remover.

Having a young son & a hard working husband I decided to give it a try. 

As luck would have it the day I bought it my son spilled chocolate milk in his bed.

1. It stinks! & I don't have a window in my laundry room.

2. It doesn't work, I think it even made the stain worse! I threw the entire bottle right in the garbage.

Luckily Zout took care of it.

What are some of your favorite stain removers?

Organized recipe books

I used to keep my recipe books here but it was a cluttered mess

Now I keep them here & each space holds similar books

2015 April Fools Day

Well we started our day with Chex cereal

(Frozen the night before)

Took a normal snack to school

& had some fruit punch in the afternoon


My 6 year old liked the eyes even though they scared a classmate but he wasn't too amused with the other stuff.

Pantry cleaning

Yikes! I just spent the last hour or so deep cleaning our big pantry/coat closet (don't ask-I don't like the shared space!)
Things I threw out: 
3 boxes of cereal
2 boxes of granola bars
2 boxes of Cookie Monster alphabet cookies (for the longest time those were the only cookies my son would eat & not everyone sold them ��)
2 boxes of instant breakfast
1 box of confectioners sugar 
2 boxes of brown sugar &
3 jars of jelly-the strawberry was the oldest item found, it expired in 2013. Everything else was between August & December.

Laundry room supplies

I didn't get a before picture but this is what I used to keep my laundry supplies in -
It wasn't too sturdy but I couldn't find anything I liked beside the $600 vanity that I really wanted so it did the job.
I was visiting a friend & she had this little piece of furniture in her garage waiting for the trash so I brought it home.
Besides it being white & matching my laundry room it also fit perfectly behind the door.

This small change has made me so happy �� I still want the $600 vanity but I don't mind waiting.
