Are You Emergency Prepared in your Home?

Prepared for an Emergency

Do you know what to do in an emergency situation like a fire, earthquake, flood or ice storm? If stuck at home with your family, would you be able to make it 72 hours until help arrives? It may seem like a hypothetical situation, but considering Canada experienced 6,235 forest fires and 169 earthquakes in 2015, being emergency prepared is something that every household should consider. Including your children in the plan is important as well. Being emergency prepared may not only help your family in an emergency, but it may also help with the survival of friends and neighbours. … Continue reading

Clean Stainless Dishwasher

This post about having a CLEAN Stainless Dishwasher is brought to you by Finish and The Co. Are you like me? As soon as you can smell Spring in the air, I get that “itch” or “cleaning bug” to Spring Clean my home, both inside and out. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that every nook and cranny has been cleaned and organized.

I never used to go through a lot of printer ink. In fact, I could go well over a year without having to replace the ink cartridges.

This will no longer be the case. With the Epson Expression ALL-IN-ONE ET-2550 Printer with enough printer ink to last for up to 2 years!

Who wants to be motivated, inspired and organized? I don’t know many people who would answer NO to any of those things mentioned above. Motivation and inspiration are two things that keep us going, whether we realize it or not. AND being organized helps us to manage our day-to-day lives, achieve our goals, help make our dreams come true and keep us sane throughout the process. We are all different and as different people, we all thrive best using different “systems” to keep our lives organized. Some people are “paper and pencil” types and some are digital peeps.

It’s time to start thinking about how we can get organized for the holidays so we can ENJOY the holidays with our family! There are so many things to think about like presents, get togethers, parties, decorations, cards, baking, outfits and more!

Enjoy Your Coffee ONE Cup at a Time with a Keurig K200 {Giveaway} #KeurigColours

Keurig K200 Giveaway

Are you a coffee lover like I am? Me and coffee go WAY back! I still remember heading across the street from my high school to the local coffee shop and enjoying coffee triple-triple (yes, it was more like a dessert!) on my spares.

Because I work from home, and not in … Continue reading

We have used a few different methods for safe, clean drinking water in our home since we moved her over 11 years ago. There have been advantages and disadvantages to each method that we have tried, however what we have landed on in the end is pure drinking water, straight from the tap. Straight tap water has its ups and downs, but what I have learned is that Strauss Water can help us with those. I was first introduced to the Strauss WaterBar at the Green Living Show a few weeks ago. This past weekend, I had the privilege of … Continue reading
