Thank god for HotShot under my sink! #HotShot #ad

So the other morning when I was getting ready in the bathroom brushing my teeth, I hear a rustle. Then I hear it again. “Wait.. That’s not right…” I think to myself, and I looked around the room to investigate. I don’t see anything at first, but I hear it again – a gentle rustle, and it leaves me feeling uneasy because I have a sinking suspicion that there’s a bug somewhere in the room with me.

I’ve talked before about my jumpiness when it comes to bugs, and I felt extra jumpy as I played hide and seek looking for where the rustling noise was coming from. Finally I spotted it within the blinds on the window!

There it was! A big nasty wasp made its way into my bathroom. Maybe it has to do with the fact that the dreaded peach tree is on the other side of the window, or maybe it was just a coincidence.. Who knows! All I know is that I’m standing in my underwear poking at the blinds with my hairbrush and wondering how in the world I am going to handle this early morning snafu.

Then I remembered I had some Hot Shot® under the sink! I couldn’t have been more thankful at that moment to have it within arms reach. It makes me feel like I should have a can of Hot Shot® under every sink, so you never have to run out of the room to get it and risk losing sight of the bug. So I closed the bathroom door, armed myself with my Hot Shot®, took a good distance from the window and let them have it! It was a little bit messy, but luckily the bathtub was right below the window, so it made for an easy clean up.

And my unwanted visitor… DEAD. Don’t let bugs feel at home!

Re-Organizing the medicine closet with Duck Brand Shelf Liner

This post brought to you by Duck Brand. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of my favorite organizing supplies has got to be shelf liners – have you ever tried using them? I swear by them because it adds a fresh surface inside your cabinets or pantries that protects the shelf beneath them. I have been using these inside my kitchen cabinets and pantry for years, and now I’ve decided to use them in the linen closet and under the bathroom / kitchen sink.

Our linen closet also doubles as a place for medications because it’s high up and out of the reach of JP. When we first moved into our house, he was barely 18 months old so we decided that would be a great place for things that say “Keep out of reach of children” on the label.

So… After about 4 years worth of “living” and not much maintenance, the medicine closet as we call it got a little messy…  Yikes!

When I started to clear everything out to re-organize, I thought it would be best to use Duck Brand’s Shelf Liner to help keep my shelves protected, and also allow for a nice clean surface to place our family’s medications on.

It was really easy to roll out and measure the correct size by holding the edge of the liner against the back of the shelf and trimming off the excess with scissors. I fitted 2 of my closet shelfs with the white liner using this method. I think I like the patterened one better for under the kitchen sink.


Once I got these down and placed, I added a little double sided tape on the bottom so it would help keep it in place without bunching up. I got some better organizer drawers, and divided up the meds into children’s meds, cold meds, allergy meds and pain & prescription misc meds with a first aid kit on the top to remedy a boo boo when it comes my way. And there’s still plenty of room for JP’s nebulizer and other knicknacks like travel sized soaps and shampoos. I love that everything has a place now, and it’s not a miserable search when you need to find something in a hurry.

What kind of organizing project will you embark on with Duck Brand’s Shelf Liner? I’d love to hear some creative ideas!

Making my life easier with Purex® No Sort™ laundry detergent #LaundrySimplified #shop

It’s sunday night, 8pm.. The kids are still up and running around and you’re doing everything you can to put them to bed so you can handle some evening chores without being interrupted 15 times. Dishes are in the sink and laundry still needs to be done – we’ve all been there! Truthfully, 8pm on Sunday  night is not the scenario in which I want to start sorting laundry into separate piles.. Maybe it’s just me, but I’ve got 13942 other things to do before I want to bother sorting out my dirty clothes! #LaundrySimplified

I love that I will save both TIME and Money using this  and spend more quality time with my family. Time and money are both things I don’t have much of, so it’s nice to find a product that’s as easy on me as it is on my wallet.

So when I discovered Purex® No Sort™ from the laundry section at Walmart, I knew right away that it was something I HAD to try!

There’s no household chore that I despise more than laundry. Laundry is that endless job that never finishes because once I finish folding the last pair of underwear, the hamper is filling up again with more for me to do – and it makes me cray-z! If you have kids, I’m sure you relate….

Purex® No Sort™ has that unmistakeable scent that I LOVE! No need for scent boosters here – and it works nicely with a HE washing machine. I couldn’t ask for more!

The Rules have changed…..

Purex® No Sort™ is designed to wash all your clothing in one load rather than special loads for your whites, colors & darks. Purex® detergent has the “Anti-Color-Tansfer” technology which traps loose dyes in the wash and doesn’t let them settle into the clothing fibers or transfer to other fabrics. I love it – No more sorting laundry and more time for me and my family! How nice would it be to run 1 load instead of 3? It would certainly change MY life, that’s for sure!
