FREE Printable - Get your Toddler/Preschooler to Clean their Room

If you have young kids, I'm sure you have heard all of the excuses:
  1. "I don't know how to" 
  2. "It is clean"
  3. "I cleaned it yesterday"
  4. "But my legs are breaking" (This is Jocelyn's personal favorite)
      One day, in a desperate attempt to get Jocelyn to clean her room, I came up with an idea. I took a piece of paper, divided it into 8 sections, then started drawing pictures of items that made up most of the mess. The first section I drew a shirt and pants to represent dirty clothes, in the second section I drew a teddy bear to represent stuffed animals, and so on, and so on. In the last section I wrote "everything else." I explained to her what each picture was (mainly because I'm terrible at drawing) then I explained that she had to pick up all of the stuff in the first section (dirty clothes) only and put them were they belong. Once she was done with the first section she would get a sticker to place over that section. Then she would move onto the second section.
      After I explained this to Jocelyn, something amazing happened. She cleaned her entire room without any help from me!!! I was actually quite shocked that something so simple was all it took. Dividing the job up onto smaller sections made things a lot easier than looking at the mess as a whole.
      We have since then, upgraded from scribbles drawings on paper to a pretty printable I made.
I know not all of you will be able to use this since your child may have different toys, but I hope it will help out some of you or at least give you an idea to make your own.

Stuff My Face - 8 Drool-Worthy Desserts

I walked into the kitchen this morning and noticed that the banana's were on the verge of going bad. I immediately thought 'Banana Cream Pie' and made a mental note to look up a recipe later.

Valentine's for HIM

With Valentines right around the corner I thought I would share a few fun DIY projects that would be perfect for that special man in your life.

Walgreens Prescription Savings Club

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have shown my support for Walgreens on this blog before and I would like to take a moment to show my support again.
I honestly believe that Walgreens actually cares about their customers and doesn't just see them as money bags. I also believe that it is one of the best places to go for medical prescriptions. As stated in my previous post, my husband used to be military and through our medical plan we were able to get our prescriptions at Walgreens for a fraction of what they would cost elsewhere. My husband is now out of the military, and we have been looking at our options for prescription drugs. Walgreens seems to be the most convenient. However, since we wont be getting our discount anymore, I wanted to look at a few other options.
