All opinions are mine alone. #WorryFreeMessFree #CollectiveBias I’ve been wanting to update my deck window treatments for about ten years. While my kids were growing up, I put a lot of home improvements on hold. I loved when my kids were little, but they were also messy. Having kids comes with fingerprints and stains on your walls and fabrics. My kids are older now, but still messy so I decided to stop putting off decor updates.

I load the dishwasher safe stuff and hand wash the others.  Once the dishes are washed I quickly wipe the counters and get started on dinner.

Tips for keeping your refrigerator neat and clean

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #OrganizeWithBrilliance #CollectiveBias Today is grocery shopping and food prep day. We have our lists made and are ready to pre-cook our meals for the week. When cooking ahead, before shopping is the best time for us to clean out and prep the refrigerator.

Once it’s clean and neat, we can cook our weekly meals and store everything with ease. I’m going to tell you how I do my quick clean, but keep in mind, this is not a deep clean. It’s a spot cleaning that doesn’t [Click here to continue reading]
