Modern Gold Piggy Bank

As our kids grow older we strive to have open conversations about different things like school and friends, but also about more serious topics like money. Money isn’t always the most fascinating topic to a kid, but once we involved our kids in financial conversations, certain things peaked their interest.

Most kids know that their guardian works and makes money. That money is spent on groceries, bills, and sometimes fun stuff. Helping kids understand the value of that money, how to create a budget, and spend money wisely gives them a good foundation for their adult lives. View Post

From shopping and entertaining to baking and decorating, the holidays give us plenty of reasons to feel overwhelmed and financially stretched. This season, lessen the stress by incorporating a few simple tips that help leave a lasting impression without breaking the bank.

Revive Outdoor Décor

Love your holiday décor from last season? Don’t be afraid to reuse it again this year to help save time and money. To revive last year’s décor and keep it looking like new, try using OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover Powder. It’s the perfect solution to remove dirt, dust and grime from decorations that were sitting in storage or outside since you put them away.

Woo Overnight Guests

Fresh blankets and sheets is an inexpensive and cheerful way to help your guest feel like they’re staying at a hotel. To help freshen stale sheets and towels from the back of the linen closet, use Arm & Hammer™ Plus OxiClean™ Unit Dose Power Paks in Fresh Scent for a refreshing clean.

Take it one step further, keep a basket with fresh towels and toiletry items they may have forgotten, such as toothbrushes and toothpaste. The new Arm & Hammer™ Truly Radiant™ lineup of products are sure to impress. TheTruly Radiant Clean & Fresh Toothpaste and Spinbrush™ are the perfect combination that refreshing and clean mint flavour that provides long lasting freshness guests will love!

Host a Potluck Christmas Dinner

Make this year’s turkey dinner a team effort! Get your guests involved in the party and arrange a potluck so that everyone pitches in. As the host, take charge by preparing the turkey and have guests bring the fixings, sides and desserts (and wine)!

When it comes to clean-up, cut back on the time you spend in the kitchen by using OxiClean™ Extreme Power Crystals™ and Triple Action Dishwasher Booster to remove the toughest stuck on foods and stains. There’s no pre-rinsing or pre-washing necessary.

Dress to Impress

From family gatherings to New Year’s Eve parties, holiday spills and accidents are bound to happen. This year, don’t let a fear of spills and stains keep you from wearing your favourite party clothes. Instead, use quality laundry detergent such asOxiClean™ HD Liquid Laundry Detergent to remove any dried-on stains the first time and keep clothes looking vivid and bright.

To accessorize your favourite party outfit, pair it with your best bling! For a quick, easy and effective jewelry refresher, try mixing Arm & Hammer™ Baking Soda with hot water and leave your jewelry to sit for a few minutes. In no time, your diamonds will be sparkling bright and looking like new.

Schedule Some “Me Time”

The hustle and bustle of the holidays is sure to leave any host tired, even when entertaining is kept simple. Enjoy some well-deserved “me time” and opt for a hot bubble bath with candles and reach for some Rub A535 Anti Inflammatory Heating Cream to soothe your aching muscles.

All Glory Comes From Daring To Begin

I became an Aunt today. About 4,000 km away, my little sister had a healthy and beautiful baby boy. His chubby cheeks and precious face stared at me through a glowing screen, and although I could only imagine how he would feel in my arms and the noises he might make, I swear I could almost smell his new baby scent through the phone.

Rain boots puddle jumping surviving the rainy season with kids

It’s rainy season here on the west coast! Puddle jumping and splashing in the mud can be a ton of fun with the kids, but someone has to clean that mess up after. (hint: that someone is me) I am the mom that pushes my kids out the door, even in sucky weather. My four year old is still in the age group that can be waterproofed from head to toe – rain boots and a muddy buddy is his go-to wardrobe! But my 10 year old? She won’t even wear her rain boots let alone an appropriate jacket for the weather (how old do I sound?!). View Post

Bulletproof Coffee - does it really work? How would it affect my mind and body?

There’s no question that I love my coffee! I’m meticulous about the coffee brewing process and the type of beans I use. I’ve special ordered a limited edition coffee bean from a craft coffee house in Portland. I watch coffee review videos on youtube. I think I’m on my way to becoming a coffee snob…

I was very excited to be test driving Bulletproof Coffee for a week, which is a cup of freshly brewed Upgraded Coffee blended with a grass-fed butter and Brain Octane oil. Adding healthy fats to your morning coffee is supposed to make you feel satiated until lunch, and help with focus, performance, and energy!
