Winter Boredom Busters

Depending on where you reside, you may be spending a lot of time indoors right now. (My minivan did not even want to be outside this week!  It refused to start—a number of times!)  When the elements keep us cooped up indoors longer than we would like, we need to think creatively to help our kids not go stir crazy. 

My mother used to say to my brothers and I, “If you have nothing to do, I’ll give you something to do.”  That was never the response we wanted to hear concerning our boredom.  I have caught myself saying that very same phrase to my own children, it’s funny how we end up repeating the very things we did not like to hear as kids! 

There is a way that you could strategically get your children’s help around the home that could be a win-win for everyone!

De-clutter and re-organize the game room or family room as a family
Here’s the strategy:

  • Get four boxes and label two of them: For Keeps and the other two label: “Give Away”

  • Have your children go through their video games and put them in either a “For Keeps” box or a “Give Away” box.
  • Take your “Give Away” box of video games to a game store that buys used video games and use the money toward the purchase of a new video game, (or new-used game).
  • Do the same with your family board games.  You may even find games your children have outgrown.  Talk about the memories you have of playing the games, and how much your children have grown.   I have enjoyed seeing my children’s eyes light up when they run across an old toy or game and then exclaim, “I remember when I used to play…!”
  • Consider giving your used board games to a local resale shop, and then treat your kids to a new board game to use on Family Game Night!

Be sure to wipe down the cleared shelves in your game room or family room with Brightly Green Multi-Purpose Cleaner before putting the “For Keeps” games back on the shelves.

So the kids are happy to have a new game and you are happy to have an organized game/family room!  There you have it; a Win-Win!    

Every step you can take to keep clutter at bay, will save you time when it comes to cleanup.  Having to vacuum and dust around clutter is not a time saver, nor is playing the hunting game when you are looking for just the right board game to play on family game night.  Keep your home simply and green clean.

Should I Toss Out My Dish Soap?

‘Tis the season for dry skin—especially if you live in the northern portions of our great country.  These dryer months play a toll on hands, especially when it comes to daily tasks like washing the never-ending accumulation of dirty dishes.  Some hand dish washing detergents try to combat the “dry skin drama” by adding moisturizers.  I have tested these detergents and when I am done washing my dishes—I feel the need to wash my hands!  Something’s not right with that picture!
Basically, disguising the chemicals that are in hand wash detergents by adding moisturizers does not eliminate the problem.  The moisturizers seem to attract sediments to your hands!   If you feel a residue on your hands—that residue is more than likely on your dishes too! –YUCK!
