June 19, 2020 – Pots and Pans Organization
I lived for so many years with my pots and pans simply stacked or shoved into a cabinet. It was a pain to get the one I needed, let alone finding space to keep all of the lids, finding space to stack all of the pots and pans without their lids, ugh, it was just chaos. A few years ago I discovered these organizers. One for the lids, and one for the pans. This has made our lives SO much easier. You can configure them differently, as you’ll notice the stock image for this product shows storing the pots and pans up and down instead of side-to-side. This way just worked better for how our cabinets were configured! The pots and pans organizer even comes with the option to mount them to your cabinet so that it doesn’t slide or fall over when you take your pots and pans in and out.
There are several other ways you can use these products. You can use them for organizing cutting boards or baking sheets, cook books, etc.
These products are truly amazing! You can make a major difference in your kitchen organization with this low cost solution.

June 13, 2020 – Baby/Pet Gate
If you have kiddos 👶 and/or dogs 🐶 , you’re probably familiar with the need for safety gates! However, they can be quite ugly. Instead of buying your typical baby gate for the steps leading to our basement, my husband built this cute “farmhouse” gate. It was simple to do and cost about the same as a buying a gate. •
*We had a chain lock on the other side of the gate so the kids could not open it without a grownup*

June 12, 2020 – Fresh Prep
Have you ever wanted to bring something to a gathering but felt that it might not be fresh by the time you go there to serve it? This is my hack for showing up to a party with the freshest food!
Guacamole 🥑 is the ultimate party snack. Am I right, or am I right? 😅 However, we all know that the best guac is a fresh guac! To make sure that it’s fresh, I portion everything into little bags, and pack it the bowl. Once I arrive, I put all of the ingredients together! Simple!
You can do this with anything that is best fresh instead of pre-made!
If you’re looking for a great guac recipe, look no further. It’s simple and delish 😋
Ingredients (makes enough for 6 – 8)
– 4 avocados
– most of a med red onion – diced small
– 1 jalapeño – seeded and minced
– 1 tomato – diced
– half – 3/4 lime – for juice. This is to taste
– 2 tbsp cilantro – chopped
– salt to taste
Lightly mash Avocado into a bowl (it will continue to mash when mixing in ingredients so to avoid overly mushy guac, don’t over mash). Stir in onion, tomato, jalapeno, and cilantro. Once combined, add sat and lime juice to taste. #ProTip: you can always add more salt but you can’t take it away, taste as you go!

June 11, 2020 – b.tanned AF
b.tan – tanned AF. Let me tell you this stuff is amazing! And so inexpensive. You don’t need a $50 or $100 self tanner. This stuff is only $14 on Amazon and if you can find it at your local Walmart it’s only $10!!
This bottle is almost empty and has lasted several months of consistent tanning. I’ve also never had issues with streaking 😎

June 9, 2020 – Amazing Stainless Steel Cleaner
I don’t know about you, but my kitchen doesn’t quite feel clean until my stainless steel is sparkling! I have tried my fair share of stainless steel cleaners and while there are some decent ones out there, I haven’t had anywhere near the results as I do by using TWO – that’s it – simple items that you probably already have! White distilled vinegar, and olive oil. Yup, that’s all you need to get sparkly and shiny stainless steel. Note: If you have stuck on gunk, you might want to take some hot water and a soft towel to it first to loosen the sticky and stuck on gunk. I do recommend testing an inconspicuous spot on your appliance, but I’ve never had an issue with various brands of stainless steel appliances
To clean stainless steel:
1. Use a paper towel or soft towel/rag to apply vinegar to your appliance. Kind of like you’re washing the appliance with it. Pro Tip: Go with the grain of your stainless steel (if you look closely, you’ll see if it runs horizontal or vertical)
2. Let the vinegar sit for a few minutes, then wipe it dry with another paper towel/soft rag – things will look a little streaky at this point
3. Apply a small amount of olive oil to a paper towel/soft rag (not the same one you used for the vinegar) and wipe it on your appliance – again, with the grain. Pro Tip: A little olive oil goes a long way. I may only use a 1/2 – 1 tbsp amount for my entire fridge. If you use too much, it will run after time. Don’t worry if this happens, simply take a towel and wipe off the excess

June 8, 2020 – Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer
One word – AMAZING! Two words – GAME CHANGER! I LOVE this product. This is probably my favorite beauty hack. If you’re anything like me and could never figure out how to give yourself a blowout with a regular blow dryer and a round brush, know you’re not alone. However, with this bad boy (or girl 😜), I feel like a completely new woman. I have long hair that is kinky curly (especially in the root area) and this is the only tool I’ve ever used that has gotten my hair completely straight with a ton of volume! I’ve had mine now for a little over 6 months and will never turn back. I haven’t used my regular blow dryer or hair straightener since DECEMBER!!!!!! You can get yours here!
