Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day


Yes,  I am at it once again.  Bringing up those National holidays.. but trust me, this one is a good one to participate in!


National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day is observed annually on November 15th. The fridge is neglected in my household. It's one of those things that is a necessity for everyone to do,   but let's be serious, no one thinks about cleaning the refrigerator out unless there is a bad smell coming from those forgotten leftovers from a month ago. 

Here are some suggestions to help you participate in this wonderful national holiday!
Get together a soap and hot water filled bucket, disinfectant, a sponge and a garbage bag, and you are ready for the day!

Thanksgiving is coming soon so we will need room for all of those Thanksgiving leftovers.  This job may be dreaded by many, but it is an important task none the less. 
There may be a surprise or two found at the back of the shelves. Things are often pushed back as the new food is put in the front and gets forgotten. 

Suggestions for cleaning out your refrigerator:
  • Empty each shelf.
  • Completely wipe down the inside of the refrigerator.
  • Wash drawers and underneath the drawers.
  • Throw away all expired food.
  • Throw away any moldy food.
  • Get rid of anything that you do not use.
  • Vacuum condenser coils.
  • Vacuum out under the refrigerator.
  • Restock shelves and drawers with good food.
  • Enjoy your nice, clean, organized refrigerator.
I hope your refrigerator looks as clean and empty as mine! 
Be sure to show off to all your friends by using #CleanOutYourRefrigeratorDay to post on social media.

A quick fun fact:
National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day was created by the home economists at Whirlpool Home Appliances in 1999.  It is said that they created the holiday to encourage people to clean out their refrigerator in advance of the upcoming holidays.  At that time, the company even had a toll-free hotline that people could call into for cleaning tips.

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want.

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!
