It’s that time of year… spring cleaning time! We will admit that we actually love this springtime tradition. It’s a chance to get rid of old items, revitalize your space and make your home sparkle like new!
But what we don’t love is the amount of time it takes to thoroughly clean and organize your home from top to bottom. Just the thought of wasting a weekend indoors when it’s sunny and warm outside makes us a little bummed.
If you don’t want to spend all of your time cleaning, we suggest trying these spring cleaning shortcuts to get the job done quickly! (more…)

Whether parents are ready or not, spring break is right around the corner for many families. Of course, that means the kids are out of school and itching to get their minds off all things school related.
But consider that pretty much every TV show and movie will remind you that spring break is the most amazing time to sneak away to sandy beaches, sunny skies and intense carelessness. But realistically speaking, that isn’t always the reality for many families. I mean, with work, extracurricular commitments, house chores or that extra tight budget, formal spring break plans don’t usually make the cut. Not to mention kids usually aren’t much for the nightlife.

We’re about 2 weeks into 2017 and if you’re like the rest of the universe, then you’ve made a resolution to finally get that body you’ve always wanted. (Good for you!)
A lot of people think that the only way to truly get fit is to join a pricey gym or hire a personal trainer. But there can be a third workout option for the most dedicated among us: your own home!
Since the gym will probably be packed for the remainder of January (until those newcomers lose steam…), we encourage you to get creative and try some of these at-home workouts. Many of these online options are free (or way less expensive than a gym membership) and they require little to no equipment.
