    Sounds like a wonderful place @coupongirl . It was very nice of your daughter to sit with a widower. I bet that made his day!

    Good Morning! No sunshine but no snow or rain so that is a win!

    Tonight- Mission is to put away clean laundry. Clean out the fridge and pitch anything we aren't using (2 juice containers that nobody is drinking) Give the shelves a good wipe down. Take inventory of fresh stuff to be used up (raspberries, peppers and cucumbers for sure)
    Then I am hitting the upright freezer and moving stuff around to make some space for upcoming bbq sales (wishful thinking!!)
    I know there are a bunch of things I moved to the top shelf already with the plan to use them up so I need to plan the meals around this stuff over the next 2 weeks. I will take something out tonight and that will be the dinner plan tomorrow!

    I swept the sand in the garage this morning while waiting for DS to take him to school. My mission to clean out the garage completely is exciting! I can't wait to have it all clean and all the junk gone! DS hasn't touched his hockey net in years.... that will free up lots of space and it is in great condition so should get a couple bucks for it! I should have empty shelving units so will be able to use in the garage sale and then can sell them after (keeping them just means storing more junk so off they go!!)

    Have a wonderful day!

    Good Morning Everyone,
    Yesterday was a struggle, I did not get a good night's sleep but it was one of those days where I felt like I did not get a good night's sleep, I was so tired and lacking focus, it was a day. But I am also proud of myself, I got the laundry done, emptied the dishwasher, did get some of my work stuff done and make a proper dinner so I am going to see that as a win.

    Not going to lie, I was so tempted to grab a quick option out of the freezer but I stuck to my plan of Baked Chicken Breast with Baked Potato, Broccoli & some marinated Cucumbers

    Now that nagging question that will not go away, what's for dinner tonight? I have no ideas for tonight. I want something that does not have leftovers as my fridge is bursting at the seams with food and I am starting to worry it won't all get eaten, going to have to watch and make sure it does get eaten.

    We did not go out yesterday, Mom was having a bad day and did not want to go which worked for me as I really did not have the ambition to go. So we shall see when I go. It is stuff we need for the house but it isn't anything we need now so no rush.

    Mom needed something from Amazon so I added some stuff I needed to her order. I ordered a 2-pack of under-the-sink organizers, I am going to be replacing the kitchen faucet, I have the new faucet, just need to install it. Then I want to redo under this sink, right now we have a bin full of stuff that honestly, I do not think most of it would be living under the sink. So I want to get it organized.

    Plus under our Bathroom Sink is a disaster, it is so hard to get out what you need unless what you need is at the front. Ultimately, I would like to replace our Bathroom Vanity but I have a feeling when we do we will also need to replace the floor. It looks like the previous owners only laid the flooring around the Vanity and not under it. Plus all of the Vanities Mom likes stand up off the floor in little legs. So for now I will organize what I have.

    That will be an upcoming project to reorganize under both sinks but I know I will be so happy once it is done.

    Happy Tuesday
    2022 is going to be my year, the year I find organization in my life and the year I focus on myself,

    Sample Source emails have gone out by invite again this time. I got 11 samples, I see some got 15 but I think it is because we have no smokers or pets in the house.

    I got a couple of candies I am not sure about, we will try them but if we do not like them I am sure my niece and nephews will enjoy them.

    Today is a Costco shop to replenish the basics. I was away for 6 weeks and Iíve been back for 3 now and the plan to use up fridge and pantry stockpiles has gone surprisingly well! I do not like crowded food storage in my kitchen and love the room in the fridge especially! Iíll be careful buying only the things I know weíll use quickly( good for organization and budget!)

    We do have the sunshine today which is always great for the night time when all the solar lights come up BUT when trying to snap any photos outside, ugh! The reflections in the glass.
    I didn't even know I was IN the photo till I checked after lol.
    Anyhow before I forget to lift up you @SassyAshley I mean, you must have read my mind! Those under the sink areas can always benefit from a facelift and there are many nifty organizers that help with that. I've been meaning to re-do the upstairs bathroom cupboard ( under the sink ) as well. When I want a cleaning product I have to pull out 3 others to get at it.

    I'll still post the awful pics I did snap because they make me giddy with joy! Easter is coming! The big window decor says so. lol

    The other night when I could not sleep I was looking up wet vacuums, I kind of really want one, I see people on Instagram and YouTube using them but they seem so much cheaper in the US. They can get them for $100 - $150, the cheapest I can find is $250.

    But well I was looking at Wet Vacuums, stick vacuums kept showing up in my search. I love my vacuum but one thing that disappointed me was I thought I bought a vacuum with a washable filter, nope it has a paper filter. This made me think I really should order more filters.

    The next day I pulled out my manual to find out what filter I needed and two things happened.

    1) I found out the filter can be washed even though it looks like it is paper. The manual recommends 24 hours but most online say 3 to 5 days. This made me super happy.

    2) I was still looking for filters just to have and everywhere including the site for the vacuum I have are on backorder. I finally found some on Amazon but they were super expensive. BUT I found a vacuum that looked identical to mine but with a different name and these filters were much cheaper. So I took a chance and ordered them, I got them today and they are an exact match.

    So instead of paying $25.99 for 2 filters + $10 shipping (Third party seller), I got 4 filters for $12,99 and free shipping with Amazon Prime.

    This weekend after I do my Sunday Reset and do the floors, I will take apart my vacuum and wash the filters and let them dry.

    Good Morning Everyone,
    I am so confused as to what day it is, when I woke up, I thought it was Thursday, then I thought it was Tuesday, I am so confused.

    But, it is Wednesday which means it is new flyer day. I have looked at the front pages only and it looks like there might be a few good deals to be had this week.

    My work to-do list for today feels a little next level for today, I am struggling to keep up. To be honest, I feel like I am having an off week but I have decided today is the day I turn it all around.

    I had been planning to wash the bedding today, but I slept in so maybe tomorrow.

    Need to figure out dinner for tonight, last night we just had Nachos with Taco Meat pulled from the freezer. Since I had an afternoon training session Mom was working in the kitchen so we needed something quick as it was dinner time and we still needed to clean the kitchen. Tonight I am thinking Chicken, maybe Chicken Sandwiches or Black Pepper Chicken over Rice.

    Happy Wednesday
