Works For Me Wednesday - Bathroom edition

My very first job was a maid in a motel. It was a HARD summer job, but I learned a lot.  One thing I learned was how to clean a bathroom in no time flat. Here are my secrets:

1)     Deep clean EVERY WEEK. That way there isn’t time for the bathroom to get to outrageous and be an overwhelming job.
2)     Gather your supplies. I use a vinegar/water mix in my spray bottle and a bit of cleanser. I have a bag of rags that I grab a few from and a scrub brush.
3)     Start from the top down. Spray and wipe walls and mirrors. Then take everything off the vanity and back of tank. Spray and wipe.  Put everything back. I use a basket on the counter to control all the “stuff.”

4)     Sprinkle the inside of the toilet bowl with cleanser, let it sit a moment while you wipeout/scrub the tub/shower stall.
5)     Scrub the toilet.
6)     Sweep and mop floor
7)     DONE! And you have a clean bath. If you do this all on a weekly basis it will only take about 10-15 min to do each week.

Meal Plan Monday

Happy MONDAY! Welcome to Ronni's Resources!

Busy week scheduled, but I took time out to plan our menu. This is one thing that helps keep me organized and chaos under control!

Here is our menu plan for this week:

BREAKFASTS:
Usually we have an “egg sandwich.” This is 2 pieces of toast, an egg scrambled in the microwave, a piece of ham lunchmeat and a piece of cheese. Quick, easy and out the door! If not a sandwich, a quick bowl of cereal or cup of yogurt.

LUNCHES:
I usually brown bag it to work with leftovers, salads or Lean Cuisine meals. Jake eats at school with the school lunch program and Joe eats a piece of fruit or a quick sandwich.

DINNER:

Monday:                       Cheese and veggie omlet

Tuesday:                       Fend for yourself!

Wednesday:                 Tuna salad w/ lettuce and cracker

Thursday:                     Fend for yourself!

Friday:                          DATE NIGHT PIZZA!

Saturday:                      Chicken Stirfy w/ veggies

Sunday:                        Salad Bar: all the trimmings, everyone can make their own salad.

What is Swagbucks you ask?
Swagbucks is a search engine, it’s powered by Google and it rewards you for doing something I bet you do every day- search the internet!

Here’s how it works:
Sign up for Swagbucks (thanks for using my referall link), then every time you need to search the web, use Swagbucks. You will be rewarded with “digital dollars” save them and redeem them for cool prizes. I use my Swagbucks  to get Amazon gift cards. It’s easy to get at least 3 Swagbucks a day! Do the daily poll, and the NOSO's (no obligation, special offers)!

Happy Swagging!

Works for me- Valentine Fun!


Valentine day Fun..
Works for me!
I didn't want to publish this before Valentines Day.. I didn't want to give anything away.
So with all my goodies I got on Super Savings Saturday, I made a few goody bags for my family, my son and his family (my granddaughter) and the ladies I visit from church.

First I took a bag, and cut the top off with crafting scissors to make a cute top.




Then I punched a couple of holes in it for the ribbon to go thru. Next, I filled with candy and goodies, (The girls get socks also!)



Then, I folded over the top, wove in the ribbon to tie it shut and added a heart shape name tag! Cute, simple and inexpensive token of my love and appreciation.
That’s what works for me!

Spring cleaning, window edition (WFMW)

Spring is just around the corner and I have been thinking about spring cleaning.
One of the yearly chores I do to make it feel more like spring is cleaning the windows. It’s a big chore and can be very time consuming.


Here are a few tips to make it a bit easier.
1)      First, pull back the blinds or curtains, open the window, and inspect its sill, frame, and tracks for cobwebs, debris and loose dirt that could smear on the window.
2)      Next, clean your screens.  I leave my screens in year round. I clean them so dirt doesn’t fly in the first time I open my windows for fresh air. The easiest way to clean screens is just run your vacuum with its dusting-brush attachment over the side that faces in. (Side to side, top to bottom is the speediest method.)
3)      My windows slide back and forth- very old fashioned. I spray
cleaner on the glass until it’s heavily misted but not drippy. Then, with a clean lint-free cloth, wipe horizontally until dry. If I am able to get to the outside of the window (some of my windows can’t be reached,) I spray and wipe vertically. Cleaning in opposite directions makes streaks obvious and easier to fix. For those windows I can’t reach, I spray with a hose.
4)      Clean on a cloudy day. Bright sun makes the cleaner dry too fast on the windows, leaving streaks and more work for you.

Hope these tips are helpful... and hope your windows are sparkly!

Works for Me Wednesday

Tax season is here. How do you organize everything to make it as easy as possible?

I have to itemize my return, we have rental income, lots of medical expenses and deductions that we can take. Every month I add up all my medical expenses. Then I just have to add 12 numbers at tax time rather than 100’s!

I also have a folder in my file cabinet. Throughout the year I collect every thing that I  will need for taxes and keep it in one place. That way it is easy for me to get to, to do the paperwork.
And those are just a few of the things I do to make taxes easier!
