"I love all the extra work that comes along with preparing a meal" said no one ever! I do love to make delicious home-cooked for me and my family, but NOT all the inevitable 'byproduct' work that comes along with it, and I'm sure no one does.
While it is completely impossible not to have all that extra work in the kitchen, there are super easy ways you can implemented to reduce the amount of cleanup and the mess that can be created during prep and cooking time.
These are the couple of things I normally do to minimize all that 'byproduct' extra work. They might sound simple, but they really are extremely helpful!
Contrary to what many people think, being a stay-at home mom is not the perfect smiley, all made-up, and perfectly dressed girl portrayed in pictures and commercials. Far from it! Being a stay-at-home mom is one of the busiest and hectic jobs in the world, especially when you have more than one child.
Between taking care of the kids, taking care of the house (trust me, that is already two jobs!), and if like me, you are a Blogger, there is barely time to get out of our pajamas (lol), relax, take a breath, and be able to take care of our own needs!
So to make my days a little less insane, there are the things that absolute get me going and help me stay focused throughout the day!
Make your life easier with these simple yet useful tricks!
I am always on the search to find ways to make my life easier by doing the same thing faster or in a more efficient way. If there is a way, I'll try to find it!
It does not have to be the invention of the wheel, but simple little things here and there, add up to a lot of time saved on things you do around the house.
These are some of my own favorite hacks at home . . . and I know you'll love them as much as I do!
Don't you hate when you run out of space in your freezer?
Most of us do! Especially people that like me do not enjoy going too often to the grocery store, so when I go, I buy for at least two weeks' worth of meals, and occasionally, even a more.
All modern refrigerators are designed to be space-efficient, but when you buy lots of items, even those refrigerators become short in space, especially the freezer . . . but the truth is that it is not really lack of space!
All the freezer items that we buy are packed in bulky boxes that take at least 20% of extra space in the refrigerator, so the only thing you need to do is to get rid of that big bulky box, right?
Well . . . yes, but don't forget to also do this, or you'll regret getting rid of that box!
I'm also going to give you some very useful extra advice!
