The Green Cleaning Coach

Do you often feel the Holiday stress? I'm not talking about getting the gifts wrapped or the turkey in the oven. How about the "company is coming and I need to get this house cleaned!"? That's when I get the most stress.

I came across a neat blog called, "The Green Cleaning Coach" and she has came up with a great idea... 20 Day Clean-up to Thanksgiving.

Her blog says, "You will get a daily plan to get and keep your home clean for the big family day- with days set aside for shopping and even one day to relax! Sound like a plan! That's the secret - having a plan and sticking to it. So join us every day until Thanksgiving and your home will be clean for guests and you will be stress free and ready for your family and the next holiday celebration!"

Day 17 - The Small Appliances - they all need a good scrub. Your going to have people in your kitchen trying to help you, so let's make it look like everything is always really clean.

Day 18 - The Microwave - here's a green trick. So one of your guests is nice enough to bring a side dish for dinner, but they need to warm it up in your microwave.

Day 19 - The Refrigerator - Let's green clean out that box. You want to empty out your refrigerator so we can make room for everything we will need for the big day.

Day 20 - The Guest Bathroom - Let's get that bathroom that the guests will be using clean now- and then we can keep it clean with a wipe of a blue microfiber cloth and a quick vacuum!

These are the short versions of the daily jobs. Follow her blog at The Green Cleaning Coach to get the entire post and learn how to maintain your clean home for Thanksgiving.

Don't forget to check out her store for Green Cleaning supplies to go along with her ideas.

Plan your weekly menus and save money and time!

Oh wow... I just found the coolest site! Being a full time working mom, I often get the "what to make for dinner" problem. Well... I remember having this problem even when I wasn't a mom.

Anyway, I stumbled across this really cool website that basically calculates a weeks worth of dinners and even a grocery list. What is really great and set this program aside from any others I have seen, is that you log on to Relish! and then customize your weekly dinner menus to your own tastes. You can even choose the Express Menu and download their picks for the week or choose what you would prefer from our Custom Menu.

Think your family might be too picky of eaters? They actually offer a selection of vegetarian, kid-friendly, quick, low calorie and simple-gourmet menus. Then all you do is choose the five you’d like to prepare during the week and your recipes/side dishes and grocery list will be assembled for you!

Seriously how wonderful is that? By planning ahead, you are saving time and money.

The subscription to Relish! is only $7 a month, which considering how much time you save and fast food you aren't feeding your family... I find it very worth the money!

I hope you will check them out and at least give it a try.

Happy (and less stressful) shopping!

Target Wii Games!

This weeks ad has Buy 2 Wii Games (14.99 - 49.99), Get one free.

Pretty good deal in and of itself... but now Target has a coupons for $10 off 2 Wii Games!

A few scenarios:

Scenario # 1
Buy 3 - $14.99 Games (B2G1 & 1 coupon) = $19.98 or $6.66 each

Scenario # 2
Buy 6 - $14.99 Games (B2G1 & 3 coupons) = $29.96 or $4.99 each

But if you aren't interested in the $14.99 games, you can always do the same with any of the games $49.99 and under. I would suggest that you try to bunch them into the same price categories so that your FREE game is not $14.99 when all the other are $49.99.

Here are some price examples I saw.

Hasbro Family Game Night (Nintendo Wii) - $39.99
Hasbro Family Games Night 2 (Nintendo Wii) - $39.99
Disney Princess: Enchanted Journey for Nintendo Wii - $19.99
Monopoly (Nintendo Wii) - $29.99
