I was on twitter today right before heading out to plant some flowers and saw Myra ( @blessedlife2) had posted about a contest a mutual “follower” was having:

“RT @decor_chick: Hey everyone come enter today’s giveaway and get your pantries and cupboards organized! http://bit.ly/H7sgtb

I jumped on the chance to enter!  I would encourage you to do the same if you are anything like me.  I want an organized kitchen but simply lack the know-how on how to go about doing it.  I have the best intentions of getting everything in order but end up making things worse.  My good friend Michelle has given me a few things to help organize my pots and pans, thankfully or I may have gotten pulled in by the monsters who live among them!  My canned goods cabinet is even worse off than my pans!  At dinner time we basically decide what we’re going to have as sides by what’s at the front.  To be perfectly honest I’m not even sure whats at the back of the rows of canned foods.

So what is this giveaway for?  It’s for a product that helps a person organize their canned goods.  It’s similar to those soda can organizers for your fridge except it’s for your canned goods in your pantry/cabinets!  It rotates your stash and keeps things nice and tidy while doing it!

Click either the link on the tweet above or go to www.decorchick.com to enter for your chance to win a set of 4 can organizers!  There’s even a discount code listed on her blog good for 10% off of your order at www.canorganizer.com if you aren’t the lucky one who wins.  That’s a pretty good deal.  The products are priced reasonably to start with, but who wouldn’t like to save a little bit?

I hope you all have a great day!  As for me, I’m heading out to finally get those flowers planted. I love spring!

Cheers,
Andrea



{January 19, 2012}   Two Boys, One Room, HUGE MESS!

Who knew that two boys could make such a HUGE mess?!  Good night!

Our family has recently started using a family schedule.  My oldest boy is in the process of being diagnosed ADD, my husband is ADD and the rest of us have the responsibility to help them function as part of the group.  My husband and I sat down and decided the best way to do that was to set out guidelines of when certain tasks would be completed each day of the week.  This is what we came up with:

6:30 am: Wake up and do morning routine (make bed, feed dogs, let them out to potty, brush teeth and get dressed)

7:30: School

3:15-4pm: Free time

4-5pm: Chores

5pm: Dinner

Following Dinner: Homework

7:30 Night routine & Free Time (shower, brush teeth, set clothes/school supplies out for the morning)

8:30: Bedtime (get drink, go potty, hugs/kisses, lights out)

So far it’s worked pretty well.  We have a chore chart that the boys use for the 4:00 time slot.  I will post pictures of that another day.  The other items are routine responsibilities that have to be done everyday.  For each of these areas on the schedule, we award poker chips for work completed.  At the end of the night, we allow them to count their tokens and change them in for something in the prize box if they have gotten 20 (or any multiple of 20) or save it to cash out on payday.

HOWEVER…there are moments I still want to pull my hair out!  Take this picture for example:

Pictured is my oldest son (carrying the telescope) and my youngest son.  My middle son is standing behind me.

Let me back up a second.  Last week, son 1 and son 2 decided they were going to rearrange their room without me.  The beds, dressers and toy boxes were put in “the perfect place.”  Trying not to crush their ambitions, I let it be.  After all we have to pick our battles, right?  A few days later?  A new design and this picture is the end result of their “creativity.”

Now this is a huge room.  The picture doesn’t do justice to the true magnitude of the mess.  Under the beds…I’m pretty sure something tried to grab me and pull me under there.  The wire cubes in the lower left hand corner of the picture…completely overflowing with I don’t even know what.

At 3:30 we put a halt to free time and made everyone meet in their room.  From that time until 9:30, we put their room back together.  My husband’s Job: Whip cracker. The boy’s job: Salvaging anything they could before I took over. My job: Trash bag patrol! I was able to get a total of five bags of trash removed from their room. Doodles, old homework, grocery receipts, Christmas wrapping paper, toy instructions, broken toys…you name it.  I took the following picture at 8:45:

Today when they get home, we are tackling the closet areas and finishing up some of the tasks that didn’t get completed last night.

What are your family’s secrets to keeping everything tidy and in place?  Do you use a reward system?  Do they have set chores for each day?  Do they perform their tasks on their own or with guidance?

Cheers,
Andrea
