Keeping a Clutter-Free Kids Room with Creative QT!

I received these items from Creative QT in exchange for a review. As always, opinions are honest & my own.

My 3 and 6 year old share a bedroom, and keeping it clean can often be an uphill battle. Our recent move gave me the opportunity to organize and sift through a lot of treasures junk the girls had acquired, in hopes of a bit of a fresh start in our new place.

So far they’ve kept the room on the up and up (gloooooory!!), but one area was still a huge issue until recently.

The stuffed animals!!! Ahhhhhh!!!

My girls have A LOT of stuffed animal friends (this is paired down…eek!), and until now they have been in hiding behind their beds. 

I was at a bit of a loss (we’ve tried that whole hanging net thing and it was a bust), until our Stuff ‘n Sit from Creative QT arrived!

3 Ways to Power Up Your Morning Routine

This post is sponsored by Ancient Nutrition, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I have never been a morning person, and although many people have said that will change after having kids that hasn’t been the case. Do I have to get up earlier because of my little rugrats? Yes. But do I thrive in the morning and do so with glee? Generally speaking, no. Haha.

In spite of the struggle, I want to maximize my mornings to the best of my ability. So I’ve asked the strongest mother I know (my mommy of course) how she powers up in the morning, and these are her top 3 suggestions!

For the Love of Nature: The Simple Way You Can Give Back to the WWF!

This post is sponsored by Kimberly-Clark Family Care Brands but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

I’ve been fascinated with nature, its unique ecosystems, and the beautiful wildlife that inhabits such diverse terrain for as long as I can remember. 

As a child I would frequently visit the library to check out books about animals and the environment. As a teenager I came very, very close to majoring in Environmental Science. And as a college student I had the marvelous opportunity to intern as a park ranger at Alaska’s Denali National Park & Preserve.

Needless to say, I’d love to see my girls take an interest in preserving our planet and its resources, and there’s a simple way we can do so as a family thanks to the Kimberly-Clark Corporation and Amazon!

Diaper Need and How You Can Make a Difference!

 

I can’t believe that I’ll be holding a baby in my arms in a matter of months. A baby!!!

I’m excited, overjoyed, and only slightly overwhelmed, lol, but we are gearing up to welcome this precious blessing to the family.

As much as I’ve been preparing mentally and emotionally, I’ve finally begun to nest and gather some essentials. It’s crazy to me to think of all the baby things that will be back in our household, such as a crib, swing, play pen, tiny clothes, and all the diapers and wipes we’ll be needing!

While this is a joyous time of planning and prepping, I’m very aware of the increase in costs that are heading our way and am truly thankful for having the things we need.

Sadly this isn’t the case for everyone, including the one-in-three families in the U.S. who struggle to provide diapers for their baby.
