Tools to organize all that kid stuff
It seems that I never have enough storage, never enough drawers, and never enough shelf space or containers for all the kids stuff. Sometimes I look around my house and think, where did all of this STUFF come from? I swear I didn't bring it all ho...

The Elf on the Shelf and other bad holiday traditions
I don't know about you, but it seems weird that Christmas is less than three days away. Although I've had my presents wrapped since early October, I've slacked on everything else: Prime rib dinner for nine? Uh, I only have pepperonis, milk and browni...
