How We Make Our Small Kitchen Function Better

**This post contains affiliate links with which I may earn a small commission if a purchase is made.

Ok, I’m gonna make this intro as short and sweet as I can so that you can get to work right away on these easy ways to organize your kitchen and make it function better. I know that my kitchen is relatively small so it might not seem like I should have that much to do but it is the opposite. I have a lot of stuff crammed into my tiny kitchen where we cook at least 3 meals a day not counting snacks.

Getting Organized: Bill Organization Spreadsheet

If getting organized while saving time and money are on your New Year’s Resolution List then these printables are for you.

We all hate paying bills, right? But that is something that has to be done. A few years ago I came up with a spreadsheet to keep me organized and keep me from forgetting what has been paid and what needed to be paid. I definitely don’t need late fees piling up or missed payments affecting my credit. Continue reading Getting Organized: Bill Organization Spreadsheet

Homeschool days making dinner crunched?

Homeschool days making dinner crunched?

Having dinner ready to go whenever we’re ready to eat is such a lifesaver on busy weeknights when we head out to activities. Now my *kids* are taking charge of dinner from start to finish. Before we start school, they start the slow cooker. Check out the videos from Kids Cook Real Food that we are using here.

Homemade Poopourri Spray

Ingredients:

  • 20-40 drops of your favorite essential oil or a blend of oils (my favorite for this spray is Purity Blend) **you can use more or less depending on your own preference
  • 1-2 t. alcohol
  • 8 – 12 oz of water (just enough to fill your spray bottle– I use one like this but ones like these may work better but you would divide this recipe between them)

Directions:

Add the oil, alcohol, and water to your bottle and shake to mix. You may need to shake this a little before each use also.

Keep the bottle somewhere close to the toilet but out of reach of little hands.

Spray a couple of squirts in the toilet before you go and give it a try.

Recently I was asked to purchase some ‘Poo Spray’. We have one small bathroom to share among all of us and the idea was a good one however when I researched the prices on Amazon they were rather expensive. So rather than flushing all that money away I decided to make my own.  Continue reading Homemade Poopourri Spray

Fixin’ to Eat: Southern Cooking for the Southern at Heart by Katie Moseman

I love cookbooks and when I was given the opportunity to review this one, Fixin’ to Eat: Southern Cooking for the Southern at Heart by Katie Moseman, I was ecstatic!

**Please note this post does contain affiliate links to which I may, possibly, earn a small commission from if you click on and purchase an item. For full disclosure click here.

This is a great cookbook filled with different twists on old recipes and then some new recipes that I’ve never heard of like Coca Cola Salad.
Many of these recipes seem very easy to make and I can see my kids learning to make recipes like Cream Cheese and Pimento Stuffed Celery in the kitchen.
There are also some great tips included in the book as well like how to pair wines with certain dishes. I am definitely going to try out the recipe for the Self-Crust Coconut Pie which sounds AMAZING!
All in all this is a great collection of southern recipes and I would highly recommend this book to anyone!
