I have some news to report. While documenting my post I was planning on writing today about cleaning, I must have thrown away my receipt from Walmart. I can tell you I purchased $44+ worth of food not many coupon matchups. If I find it I will post later. My main purpose was to buy a whole chicken to cook this week. I normally buy a whole chicken and roast it in the oven and then debone it to use the meat. I then take the bones and cut up some root vegetables to make a stock. The stock is great for soups, stews, rice and/or beans. I did this once a week in the winter and it would help keep the house warm too. I do not do this as much in the summer. My husband grills outside so it does not heat the house in the summer.
Also Little face is doing quite well. So well in fact he is still not sleeping today and has been up for an hour in his bed as I clean and write this post. Hmm… I hope this is not a sign of things to come.
Now on to what I really wanted to post today. I do not like cleaning, but I love a clean straightened house. If only I was Samantha from Bewitched and I could twinkle my little nose and make everything spick and span clean. The luxury of that would nice. However, in the real world that does not happen. So I am following some advice and taking 10-15 minutes to organize some place that is an eye sore in my home each day. Yesterday was my dining room table. AKA coupon central. I have everything related to coupons there. I have a system I just don’t always stick to it.
I spent around 15 minutes cleaning and straightening the table. I was so surprised how little time it took and how great it looked after I was done. It has now inspired me to work on other problem areas in my home. My husband will be so thrilled.
