I couldn’t agree more about the television. I’m an at home mom and almost never watch television. We only have one in the house, and if I have my way, that’ll never change despite my two kids. Time saving tips not listed here? Everyone has their own system, but I like the “grazing” style of doing things. As I go by something, I do what is needed, then move on. I have project days for things like floors, but that’s a scheduled ‘event’
Amazing how much time and willpower the TV can suck right out of you – well, any screen, really … With a little baby chopping my time into miniature segments now, I am becoming such a fan of “grazing!”
We just got cable for the first time in almost 6 years (internet was cheaper in the bundle), so our family of four are very avid readers. While we still enjoy Netflix and Hulu, nothing beats cracking open a book and delving into a new adventure. Getting your children involved in reviewing books is a great way to increase their love of reading. They feel rewarded as they receive free books, and waiting for the new shipment to come in every few weeks is like having Christmas all year long.
(my tip for waxing the floor less and reading more…Scooba!)
Well, thanks … now I want a Scooba! Do they suck up cockroaches, too? If so, I might have to get ten …
I am super excited to be reviewing kids’ books now, because my little boy will be receiving a stack of books for Christmas ( can only hope this doesn’t happen, eh! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sv4Hpz-GI3g) He’s only six month old, so I’m probably safe, heh heh.
My little sister participated in the kids’ book month and she was so thrilled! She told our dad, “Guess what! I’m going to be sort of famous!” She wanted to tell everybody about it.
I use a Roomba for vacuuming (and yes, they’ll take up them bugs) and a Scooba for my “mopping”. I have had them for close to 10 years, though I have upgraded over the years. Really does save time allowing me even more reading throughout because there simply is not enough hours in the day!
Found you via a post on Rachel Thompson’s FB page. How did you get started as a book reviewer?
A friend of mine that also reviews for this publication told me about it and I was anxious to join! I already review books on my blog, so it seemed like a natural fit. It’s a thrill to get new books every month!
