September 6, 2011

A storage cabinet with doors will keep hazardous items like garden chemicals, paint, and pesticides out of the reach of children, especially if it’s locked.  If you have valuable tools in your garage, you may want locked storage.  Before we organized my client’s garage, she had pesticides sitting next to macaroni and cheese they stored…

Our dog Cleo has been sprayed by a skunk numerous times.  She obviously isn’t catching on to the whole avoidance thing.  If you have had a skunk spray your pet you know it’s extremely nasty.

Laundry Tip: Simplify Laundry

It sure isn’t fancy or complicated but it works for me.  This is my basement laundry area.  Instead of piling dirty clothing on the dirty floor, I sort it into baskets according to the load category.  Lights, darks, jeans, sheets, and bleached items.  When a basket is full, the clothing go into the washing machine.…

Laundry Tip: Children Can Do Laundry

July 26, 2011

I taught our teenage daughter how to do her laundry when she was 12 years old.  Until then, she had to rely on me for clean clothing.  I wasn’t totally reliable, meaning the article she wanted to wear wasn’t clean when she wanted to wear it. You may have been hesitate to teach your children,…
