Guest Blogger: Little Helping Hands

Last month with annouced a guest blogging contest.  Unfortunately we did not get that many submissions.  If any of you are still interested, you can still submit a post to me by e-mail and if your post is used in our Blog, you will receive a $20 gift certificate to our store.

Our first guest blogger is Kristen. Kristen has actually just started her own blog if you would like to visit it at:  

Kristen was nice enough to submit a post to us about how you can get your little ones to help you around the house.  Here it is ...

"We have two girls, ages 6 and 7.  My husband and I are always looking for new ways to include them in the upkeep of the house.  Right now, they have chores 4 days a week (not counting the daily ones, like putting away clothes etc.)  However, as they got older their chores started becoming more involved.  They needed to use cleaners.  We talked about how to do this without A. costing an arm and a leg and B. not having them clean with any yucky chemicals.  Our solution?  A spray bottle with mostly water and a little vinegar.  Now our girls can clean the bathroom and we do not have to be stingy with the spray! They can spray to their hearts content!  And let me tell you, they LOVE to spray!  So if you are raising children and are in the same boat we are, give it a try.  It really works, is green, all natural and safe.  You may even find your kids begging to clean...ours actually did tonight."

Thank you Kristen!
