DIY Way To Clean a Coffee Mug

If you’re familiar with DIY cleaning, then you won’t be surprised by the secret ingredient for cleaning coffee mugs, baking soda. It would seem that the magic of baking soda knows no bounds!

Rinse thoroughly.
A Schedule of Little Things to Look Forward To

A Schedule of Little Things to Look Forward To

So many families right now need a good mix of structure and some flexibility mixed in – and of course a little bit of JOY sprinkled on top!
This Mom created a small family schedule of things to look forward to!

Laura explained:
“I wanted something for me and my kids to look forward to each day, so I posted a list to my fridge of the days of the week and one fun thing each day. (Like Taco Tuesday, Takeout Thursday, Dance Party Friday, Movie & Popcorn Sunday.) I never manage to stick to things like this, but because they’re fun/food-related, we’re 3 weeks in and going strong. It differentiates the days a little and is a tiny bit of structure. Gives me some bones to plan groceries/dinners around to. I see it evolving if we get bored of any of the things, but it’s a tiny little bit of cheer for me right now.”

But your family’s schedule of mini-joys can be anything you like. You could schedule in a family game night, a walk through the park, or a seasonal craft. The trick is to choose things you’d probably do anyway, or that are simple enough to not make you groan at the end of a long day of work and school. The point is not to add to your plate, but to call out a handful of bright spots in the upcoming week so you’ve all got something to look forward to.
