~Cleaning tips~

Well how about that Kym has learned how to clean ....
These are some tips to help do it more naturally then those harsh chemicals that we use now days. I have found that I have a severe sensitivity to smells and spray chemicals. In other words..I am ALLERGIC to Febreeze!! Yes , Ladies it is true. I so not run around with a cough as I did when I was using Febreeze all the time.. Here we go!

Household odors: Ie..Bacon, urine,dusty, musty etc..
 Simply mix vinegar and water into a spray bottle , spray your room or floors or fabrics with it. It will smell like vinegar for a bit , but let me tell you after wards is odorless.
Urine Stains: I do love (insert plug) Kids n Pets, you can get it at Walmart. I should get paid for that and I would if I had more than 2 readers.  Here is a kinda cheaper and more natural way to go about cleaning those stains. Borax mixed with water as a paste rub on stain, beds, carpets etc..and let dry then vacuum it up. VIOLA!
BORAX has so many different uses~ You can buy a box and read about the different things you can clean with it..It costs about $2 dollars a box compared to $4 for one cleaning product! SAY WOW! say it again! It will save your household MONEY! 
Arm & Hammer Baking soda is good and cheap as well has many uses..I use it to clean counter tops, carpets,Silver sinks that get stained. Also, It is the SECRET in those expensive Magic Erasers..Oh yeah!
My ladies READ LABELS!!  take Baking soda mix it with water and clean walls, fridges, many many things..I am truly so excited to share this with you Ladies.. 

:0) Let me hear from you about some of your tips!!

In the Beginning!

Couponing is not an easy task to take on but if you have these few simple rules that I have been following then it makes it worth your time and money.

1) NEVER buy anything that is not on sale !
2) NEVER buy anything that does not have a coupon!
3) No one really needs 100 bottles of tylenol unless they are a food bank.
4)Do not I repeat do not go into a store with more money than you plan on spending and your list.
5) Many companies have Rain Checks take them up on them
6) Shop online the weekly ads for the best deals

NEVER NEVER NEVER buy just because you have a coupon!

This is Challenging ! I am an impulse and day by day shopper..Meaning I go to the store everyday for meals.
I have stopped doing this completely.  
Today I took my Rain Check,plus my coupons for Bic Soleil  to Walgreens .

Razers 6.59
coupons 3.00
bogo1/2 off 2.00
Paid .74 cents for two packs of razers

I have literally halved all my shopping bills just by doing this!! Remember Smart shopping = Super savings!!

My mind ,heart and soul! Dealing with depression!

Everything on the outside is perfectly happy! I have spent the last few years realizing the people around you can only help you achieve happiness NOT make you happy!

I have fought and battled depression for many years ..since I was a teen. I go through various stages of depression some more severe than others. God has helped me in so many ways to deal with it ,but I feel this time I am having an even worse time "shaking" this bout.

EVERYthing  else in my life is wonderful! Great God, Great husband and Great family. SO WHY CAN I NOT FEEL HAPPY INSIDE?
My mind, heart and soul feel so heavy some days!

I have tried so hard this time to not revert to medication, but I am leaning that way again. Every three to four years I have these periods of depression. I have taken meds 3 times in my life... I have to return to it..get straightened out chemically , then I will be fine for a few years! Why do I torture myself to deal with my depression? BECAUSE we Americans over medicate! You can rarely get me to take tylenol!

 This depression that I feel bleeds over into my family life I know!! I try so hard to be Happy, Smile , Laugh and adjust . I am getting so tired ,sleepy and want to cry all the time! FOR NO REASON!!!  This is one the most honest blogs!  Many people try to hide it! I am finally embracing it and going to get it taken care of!  God knows I have tried other methods! Please pray for me !! I am almost excited to see what can become of this..will I become the "OLD" me  or is it to late? Maybe this is the big one ! ARGGGGG!
