WFM Wednesday

My Works For Me Wednesday post today is about my snackbox in my vehicle. I briefly mentioned it in my last WFM post so I thought I would go a little more into it today.

Its not much really but I get so many comments on it (positive and not so positive) in real life I thought I would blog about it. (Because that’s what bloggers do right?)

Anyway all that it is, is a plastic shoebox sized tub with a lid that I got at the dollar tree. Yes folks, I shop at the dollar tree. Anyway in it I store snacks like granola bars, cereal bars, individual chip bags, and other non melting snacks (today it was 115 degrees in the truck at 6pm) and I also have some juice boxes in there. Its under the front seat and pretty much stays there. At least once a week I refill and rotate drinks as needed. But usually come Friday its in need of refilling.

The reasons I have this are plentiful but mainly I am cheap and my kids are ALWAYS hungry. They both have fast metabolisms and so they constantly snack. I want them to have healthyish options that don’t break my budget. Also I have been known to dip into it when running around and hungry.

Another reason is you never know what might happen. Recently there was a very bad accident on a bridge and cars were trapped for seven hours. HELLO?! You on a bridge for seven hours? What if you have kids? People laugh at my snack box and laugh at my anal retentiveness and OCD but trust me, you want to be in the car with me when you are stuck on a bridge for 7 hours. I know you won’t starve to death but you won’t kill your kids because they are crying because they are hungry.

I urge you to make a snack box and keep it filled and put it in your vehicle. Its to cheap not to do.

What works for you?

Monday Monday

   So its a new week. And what did I accomplish last week? Not much of anything really. I got some stuff done but not really. Ever feel like a hamster in a wheel? I think that’s what all stay at home moms feel like in the summer. Every day we just spin our wheels.

   I got my husband to work on Wednesday. And now we’ve discovered that he is probably going to be gone 3 months. Yep. Fun. It is what it is. Then Sunday was our 12th anniversary. We’ve only spent, I believe, 4 together. I remind myself that marriage is not about the one day but all the others in between. We can celebrate being married any day. (But part of me still wanted him here)

   I don’t really have to much planned for the week. Play date for the youngest, Zumba, pool and oh yeah….more cleaning and going through boxes getting ready for our next move.

   What are your plans for this week? How are you surviving summer so far? Do you too feel like a hamster in a wheel or is that just me?

WFM Wednesday- Clean Vehicle

One thing I like to do that helps my life run smoothly is keeping our vehicle cleaned out. Is it perfect? No, but we can all ride in it comfortably. I follow Flylady and one of her habits is Clean Car Friday. So most Fridays I go out an pull out all unneeded items and return them to their rightful homes. I also take our snack box and refill it with snacks and then I grab a wet washcloth and wipe everything down. If I am out and about I try to pull into the carwash and vacuum it out. It takes only a few minutes and the benefits are huge. I also try to fill up the truck and check the tire pressure. Total time is 15-30 minutes depending on if I fill it up and vacuum.

To give you an idea of what I do here’s my list:

1. Grab empty laundry basket and pitch everything that doesn’t belong in the truck.
2. Grab empty shopping bag and place in it all trash. Place additional bag in vehicle for during week trash.
3. Return things to rightful spot. (Umbrella under seat, chargers in console, etc)
4. Bring in laundry basket and snack box. Refill snack box.
5. Replace snack box and take wet rag and do a quick wipe down of everything.
6. Vac, gas and tires if going into town. If not I will wait till I do.

This plus using pockets of dead time to clean helps keep my vehicle looking nice. (Pockets of dead time is my term for when I am waiting in the car for a child. I will do a quick pick up of trash and take the microfiber cloth I keep in the truck and wipe everything down)

Do you have a clean vehicle routine?

Sum sum Summertime

    Well I hope you all had a great weekend! For Fathers Day we took the kids to the pool and then to McDonalds. Yep….living the life people…..don’t hate. After we just hung around the house. Big fun!

    Now that we are somewhat settled in our temporary home I am planning on getting back to the gym. I got a new schedule and marked off water aerobics and the dance type classes. I also joined a weight loss group with my church. I think the competition will do me good. I like competition. Actually I like winning but I am not supposed to say that. (But I like winning….shhh)

   I need to get things back on track. I need to menu plan again. Little different this time as I will be trying to use up my stockpile. After moving it once I want to move less this time…lol. I also need to get back on cleaning schedule and get things purged. We should be moving right before school starts and I want to be on track. Both girls will be in school this year and Becca has been promoted to the advanced karate class and Carson wants to do both dance and cheer leading next year. And she wants me to be cheer mom. So getting organized this summer is a must if I want to add all that to my plate.

    What about you? How do you spend your summers?

Happy Father’s Day

To all of the Fathers out there….either by birth or by choice I want to wish you a Happy Father’s Day! What are your plans for the day?

A Moving Experience

As you may or may not know my family just moved over Memorial weekend. Let me tell you, its been an experience. I have not really moved to much. Moving out of my parents house wasn’t hard because I didn’t have much. Then when we moved into our first and second homes we still didn’t have much. But after 6 years and 2 more kids living with us we seemed to have acquired MUCH junk. We did not pack the way I wanted but I have now come up with a plan for our next move….in 2 months. Most of our stuff has stayed packed as this is a temporary move. When we move anything that we need absolutely will have a red dot placed on it. That would be food, china, & clothes. Then things we need after that will have a blue dot. Computers, DVDs, entertainment items. After that we wrote on the boxes what they contain.

Now while still here I will be purging. I love freecycle and hope to get rid of a ton of item. Maybe a garage sale at our next home too. I want to embrace the minimalist lifestyle…lol….well at least stand near it.

Have you ever moved? Got any tips, tricks or advice?

Husbands

Let me ask a question? Is my husband the only bull in the china shop???

To clarify…..if I am still asleep…..mind you its 6am not 8 or God forbid 9am my husband will be as loud as humanly possible all the while claiming he is trying to be quiet. He will repeatedly come into our bedroom and “looking” for something in the bathroom. So I finally say I’m up….what are you looking for and he says never mind I found it and he holds up his razor!

Cue exploding head!

Did I forget to mention the kids were at my parents?

Well…..two were the 40 year old needs to go next time so this momma can get some sleep.

So, is my husband the only one like this?
