Check these efficient cleaning tips to keep you guided: 

  • Gather and organize all cleaning tools: Place your cleaning tools in a bucket, caddy, or tote. This will make your cleaning job easier and faster because you have everything you need in a portable and accessible place.
  • Choose one task and finish it: Choose one task, such as mopping, dusting, or vacuuming, and do it in all rooms. For example, dedicate time for dusting all surfaces across all rooms and proceed with the next task. 

This cleaning technique is more efficient as compared to cleaning an entire room at a time. In this way, you won’t feel an endless cleaning cycle or starting the same tasks all over again.  

  • Sweep before mopping: Before you mop, sweep the floor first. When mopping, start from the farthest room corner and move backward until you reach the doorway, helping you avoid mopping yourself and getting trapped into a corner. Make sure to rinse the mop when you finish mopping a 4-by-4-foot area. 
  • Move while vacuuming: Keep moving while vacuuming, running it in every nook, cranny, and carpeted room.

3 Coming Home Outfit Ideas for Baby

One of the best parts of packing a bag for baby’s hospital stay is the brand new outfits you have ready for him to show off. If it’s a boy, you’ve probably chosen his onesie and matching cap to bring him home in. If it’s a girl, you probably have a cute knotted baby gown and bow already picked out for her. If you’re still undecided on what to bring your little one home in, here are a few favorites all moms seem to love.

Personalized Onesie

If you’d like your baby to show off that awesome new name, what better way than with a monogrammed onesie? To complete the outfit, you can add a matching cap that has their full name spelled out. Or you may want something more versatile. A simple bib that matches their outfit with their name embroidered could be a better choice . Now you can take pictures with and without baby’s name being shown. For a final touch, add an embroidered swaddle blanket for that final pop. If it’s a girl, you can also get her bow personalized. It all depends on how many items you’d like to customize. Keep in mind that most of these orders take some time. So if you really have your heart set on some of these, be sure to order ahead. 

Knotted baby gowns

If a personalized onesie isn’t for you because you haven’t decided on a name, or don’t want to find out the gender until baby arrives, or if you just don’t have time to place a custom order, an organic knotted baby gown at Sandstone Avenue would be a perfect choice as a coming home outfit. A gender-neutral color like an ivory, sand, or oatmeal color are all perfect choices for your little prince or princess. If you still want the personalized element for pictures, order a birth announcement that you can fill in once baby arrives. Just make sure to pack a marker.

Modern Bedroom Inspiration: 5 Ways to Transform Your Space

Four months ago, we had the interior of our home painted. When they painted, they did our master bedroom a lovely shade of blue. A blue that I chose myself. Because the room’s color scheme was blues, white and yellows.

Except the blue came out…different…that I thought it would. It’s not BAD, but it’s quite a bit more…vibrant…than I was planning on.

This has created a project for me: a complete redo of our master bedroom. (You can stop laughing now.) Thankfully the furniture has been ordered, and the bedding, as well, but NOW it’s the actual decor I’ll be working on. Since I’m transforming MY space, I thought today might be a good day to chat about that!

Modern Bedroom Inspiration: 5 Ways to Transform Your Space! #modernbedroom #homedecor Click To Tweet

When seeking inspiration for your bedroom, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a style that’s more timeless than modernism. 

A modern bedroom can be many things. It’s sleek and trendy, minimalist and effortless, and luxurious and elegant. In the context of design, modernism is primarily characterized by clean lines and shapes, functionality, and a polished aesthetic. But the trick to creating the modern bedroom of your dreams is simple enough — just incorporate the elements that resonate with you. 

From ensuring you have the best memory foam mattress in place to repurposing furniture, these five modern bedroom ideas will inspire you to create a space that transcends time. 

1. Create an Accent Wall 

The walls say it all. The best way to add a personal touch to your modern bedroom is with an accent wall. You can paint one wall in your bedroom a different color, apply a patterned wallpaper, or even venture outside your comfort zone and add an exposed brick wall.

Backpack vs. Over the Shoulder: Which Diaper Bag is Right For Me

First of all, don’t roll your eyes. You would NOT BELIEVE the amount of conversations in different online “mom” groups and forums that I’m a part of regarding diaper bags. They are totally an essential part of a mom’s wardrobe – at least the mom of young children. And it really can make or break an outing! If you know…you know!

Backpack vs. Over the Shoulder: Which Diaper Bag is Right For Me? #diaperbag #backpack #kidgear Click To Tweet

There’s a lot to consider when deciding on a diaper bag. Is this your first baby or do you have toddlers? Do those toddlers still need things to travel with them on trips? Would you feel more comfortable with a backpack diaper bag or would you prefer the over-the-shoulder style? Before you set your heart on a diaper bag, consider some of the following to help you decide which is ideal for your lifestyle. 

Storage

Messenger-style diaper bags are a great choice if you’re only planning on packing your baby’s belongings. However, if you have a toddler who needs to share diaper bag space, this may not be the right choice. A toddler’s clothes, shoes, and toys will take up more space. Will you carry your purse or do you want to put your items in the diaper bag, too? With a backpack, you’re more likely to be able to fit your things, baby’s things, and older sibling’s things, too.
