Manic Monday: The Family Clothes Hamper {Guest Post}

Guest Post Written by Erin Odom of The Humbled Homemaker Laundry has always been one of the areas of my home that always—literally—piles up on me. I try to do one load each day, but if I miss just one day, it seems I have a mountain of clothes and linens waiting for me the next morning.

My first thought was to say, “No, baby, mommy needs to...

Manic Monday – Goodnight, Sink

I had a different idea in mind for Manic Monday today, but when I woke up to a sink (and counter, and table, and coffee table…) full of dirty dishes I decided to write about this. Tell your kitchen sink “goodnight”. Take a few minutes before you go to bed to make sure the dishes are clean, put away, and your sink and counter are wiped down. You’d be amazed at how brighter your day starts...
