That's Pinteresting!

Here are some of my favorite Pinterest finds this week!!!!

You cover a fish jar or other decorative type of jar with stickers or other cute embellishments. Everytime you catch your kids doing something good.. being nice to a sibling, cleaning or helping without asking, etc.. you put a slip of paper into the jar with a reward or activity idea. Then after a certain amount of time you pick a paper out and do whatever it says or give them a treat. Really like this idea for the kids!

This book looked really interesting when I saw it on there. A Mom's experiment of using a year to clean her house, de-clutter, and rid it of "Youth entitlement." Sounds good to me!

Have a book hospital bin! What a great idea. I am always finding books that lost a page or something got torn.. and I don't want to get rid of it but it looks horrible. Whenever you find one like that (or your kids) you can throw it into the bin and fix it when you get a chance! No more ugly books, and no more "ah just throw it aways!" (Breaks my heart with books! ;)

An organizing tip-- Using a paper towel holder to hold your bracelets. They would stack up nicely and you could easily see what you've got. The only problem I see is having to take a lot off if you want one more towards the bottom?

Another cute snack idea for the kids. making a butterfly out of a chicken nugget and chips. It looks like they used Doritos for the wings in this picture.

A "Calm Down Basket" When your kids are too old for naps anymore or its been "one of those days" you can pull out a special basket that has books, activities, and little toys that only get used during those times. I guess you could trade them out every-so-often, too.

I know i'm getting a little ahead of myself here, but this Christmas tree shirt was too cute! Using a white tshirt and different styles/colors of ribbon. I could even see myself being able to do this for my girls this year!

Make marshmellow pops with layers of orange and yellow to make them resemble candy corn! Would be a cute Halloween/fall treat.

Movie night for the family! pick a movie and then do a menu that goes along with the theme. My kids would love this idea! Could even tape it up to give them something to look forward to during the week.

Ahhh! OPI nailpolishes based off of Pixar movies! I love these and need some! Especially love the "Monster in the Closet" and "A Bug's Life" colors!

Revover a plain old black desk/office chair with cute fabric! 

Can't decide if this is cute or tacky! To dress the fridge up like a snowman!


  1. I have the Cleaning House book if you want to borrow it. :)

  2. That's where I got the idea, from you! Ha! Thanks so much for the offer, I actually foudn it cheap on Ebay last night and bought it already :)
