When she came to visit we discussed kitchen sponges. Here's the deal.
1. Buy them from Costco- they are so much cheaper and they will last for a LONG time.
2. Don't let them sit in the sink full of yucky water and food! That totally makes them smell!!! Rinse and SQUEEZE them out after use!
3. Yeast and flour... totally stick to your sponge and it pretty much has to be thrown away after cleaning up dough. So be careful.
4. To make your money last even longer Julia introduced me to cutting them in half.
So here's to cutting my sponges in half!
Another thing my sister enjoys is Ikea! Justin and I just went to the West Covina store last week and got all kinds of fun new things. An activity table and stools for the girls, a dresser for the TV, kid plates and cutlery, glasses, WAY oversized night light for Kennedy and... dinner plates for $0.59 a piece! They were not the plates I HAD to have if I could choose from any, but for $0.59... I got 15!
On a sad note... my clock is offically broken. Julia and I went shopping in Arizona what, 2 years ago? Anyway I found this clock for $29.99 and wanted it so bad, but then thought I'd pass. Lucky for me Julia was there and said, "would you just get the stupid clock. You know you like it." So I did and have been VERY satisfied with it, until it broke. I've used 2 new batteries in one week and the time is never correct. So farewell to my favorite clock :( I hope to replace you with a fancy Ballard Designs model :) click here
