This time of year brings about so many stresses on our families. With all the running, running, running staying organized is very important. Not to mention the thoughts as you shop for your children for Christmas of where am I going to put all these new toys! Ahhhhh!!!! Well there is no one more then me that needs a little extra help with my organizing I can promise. I was so excited with I received an email from Rubbermaid this morning with just that! A little bit of help, check out Rubbermaid's Blog and get that help you need. :O) They have a new Ask an Organizer section where you can not only ask for help but look at questions that have been asked by other. Don't stress this time of year get organized and enjoy your family.
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
