Gum— one of the necessities in life. If I do not have gum nearby at all times, that is a major precursor for disaster. Seriously. Gum keeps me fresh when I need it and it helps me focus throughout the day. I try to make it a habit to always have it with me, because I certainly miss it when I don’t! So, to help with this, I made a duct tape hanging gum pouch that will allow me to keep it hooked with me wherever I go!

5 Tips for a Consistently Clean Home!

Now, before I share my tips for a consistently clean home, I must be up front and say that I don’t always do these! My house isn’t always picked up and my floors aren’t always shiny.

I just want to share these tips because not only do they work when they’re in play, but they are an encouragement to me. I of course what them to be an encouragement to you too! read more
