Don’t let laundry stains keep you from enjoying outdoor activities

Yesterday found us at a family member’s home, enjoying family, the fantastic fall weather and of course, delicious food. The time for cookouts, corn mazes, pumpkins patches, hayrides, and bonfires has finally arrived! We are excited to dive into all the fun festivities, but I’ve learned from our previous cookouts and bonfires to expect lots of laundry stains. Don’t let laundry stains keep you from enjoying outdoor activities, simply use my secret weapon- Biz Stain Fighter!

The Jigsaw Puzzle app is engaging and fun anytime

I got my love of Jigsaw puzzles from my Mom. I can remember coming home from school to find a puzzle in progress on our dining room table. My Mom would happily allow anyone who passed by the table to try adding a piece or two, as long as you followed her rules. It’s hard to say which I loved more, helping her lay out a brand new 1000 piece puzzle (corners first of course!), or helping her find the final piece. We had hours of fun together and now thanks to the Jigsaw Puzzle app I can take that fun with me and have fun anytime!

Bathroom Baskets- A clever way to keep hygiene essentials on hand



This post is sponsored by Depend, Poise, Ensure, and Glucerna but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.



My role as a homemaker is one I treasure. I try my best to think of the wants and needs of not only my family but of all who may visit and spend time in our home so they will feel welcomed and comfortable. When planning for company, there is one room in the home that deserves a little more time and attention than others. No, it’s not the kitchen or the living room. Today I want to focus on the bathroom. Ever since I helped take care of my mother in law, I've looked at what is available in bathrooms from a caregivers perspective, so  I’ve made a quick and easy hygiene essentials basket perfect for every guest, including seniors.

Serve lunchtime smiles with Jif & Smuckers and Imagine If Contest

Eating Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch is as American as apple pie. I can remember picking out a different flavor of jam or jelly each week for my beloved PB&J’s. I was delighted when we found Jif peanut butter or Smuckers on sale that week because that meant my Mom would stock up on our favorite flavors.  My go-to then and now is creamy Jif peanut butter with Smuckers Strawberry fruit spread.  So, so good! I bet you have a favorite PB&J combo as well. I’m excited to be working with Jif and Smuckers today to share with you some new products and to let you know about the Imagine If with Jif Contest.

The supply lists seem to get longer and more costly each year, that’s why I’m so excited to share an innovated product with you today. Read on to see how you can send your students back to school with a reusable notebook too.
