Tuesday Tidbits w/ a GIVEAWAY!

Cause who doesn't like tips, tricks, help hints, 'cheat sheets', pointers and even organizing pointers to make life that much easier?!

If you know me...you know I hate clutter!

 So this bugs me every time I open this cupboard!

Time to do something about it. 

As long as you have an old Lysol wipes container, you are set to get rid of the look of all the plastic bags!

Empty it out and rip off the label

Grab some contact paper, scrapbooking paper and I cut out the letters "BAGS" (since I LOVE labels!)

Cut the scrapbooking paper to the height of the container (I had to add a little extra piece) Then cut the contact paper about an inch bigger. Place the scrapbooking paper face down in the contact paper

Wrap around the container and Wa-la!


Another little tip!

My kids LOVE picture books! Especially the ones I make of the whole year, but by far, their favorite book is our FAMILY BOOK!

Since we don't live close to all of our family, I made a book of all of our family members. Each family/couple gets a page, for their picture.
This way, when my kids see that family member, they aren't complete strangers and the feel like they kind of know them.
Here are a couple pages out of our most recent family book...
 My aunt, uncle, and cousins (on the left) & My husbands cousin, his wife and little boy (on the right)

 My kids 'adopted' Grandma Linda Bob and her hubby Ron (on the left) & My husbands brother and his wife aka...Rara and Nicko (on the right)

Such a great way for your kids to 'know' all of your family, near and far!

What are your tips, tricks, help hints, 'cheat sheets', pointers?!
