Easy Recycled Bottle Cat Container

Recycled Bottle Cat Containers make a cute, and best of all FREE craft! I came up with this fun idea after doing a little spring cleaning.

My cat is not feeling well and living in my bathroom right now, which means I’m constantly cleaning that room for him. I found a bunch of old shampoo bottles that I started to trash, but decided to turn them into cat containers instead. I guess my cat inspired me!

Here’s what I got at CVS:

  • Suave Ocean Breeze Body Wash for my daughter who loves body wash. This contains mineral-rich sea algae extract, and is infused with Vitamin E, which can help condition her dry skin.
  • Suave Keratin Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner for me! Did you know your hair’s natural keratin protein depletes over time, leading to frizzy and unmanageable hair. This helps restore and tame unruly strands for smoother silky hair.

Go ahead and use up and recycle those half-empty bottles with this fun cat container craft. Then head over to CVS for some great values. Right now get 2 for $6 + Buy 2 and get $2 ExtraBucks rewards with your CVS card.

I think these easy Recycled Bottle Cat Containers would be fun for a kid’s birthday party activity. Just have pre-cut bottles cut and let kids draw their own cat faces on the bottles with a sharpie.

What you’ll need:

  • Shampoo, lotion or body wash bottles (Remove labels with nail polish remover)
  • Sharpie
  • Exacto knife
  • Scissors
  • Sand paper (optional)

Recycled bottle cat container is a simple craft! Easy repurposed shampoo bottles turned into cute kitty cat containers.

  1. Start by drawing a line for the head and ears with your sharpie on the front of the bottle.
  2. On the back, draw the cat’s tail.
  3. Carefully begin cutting out the cat’s ears and move towards the back towards the tail.
  4. Cut as much of the bottle away from the tail with the blade, then use scissors to shape everything nice and neat. If the edges are too rough or sharp, sand down with sandpaper.
  5. Wash out any extra product from the bottle and clean any pen marks.
  6. Draw a cat face and you’re done.

What Should You Do With Your Cat Container?

Here are some fun ideas for how to use your new kitty cat containers:

  • Hang in shower to hold razors or face cleaner
  • Use as a planter
  • Hang on a wall for decor
  • Pencil holders
  • To store headphone and phone chargers

7 Time Saving Tips For Shopping at Costco

Having a Costco membership is sure to save you money. But what about precious time? They say time is money, so here are 7 time-saving tips for the next time you go shopping at Costco.

7 Time Saving Tips For Shopping at Costco! Great ideas to save time shopping at Costco. They say time is money, so learn the best time-saving tips for the next time you shop at Costco.

Time Saving Tips For Shopping at Costco

I love shopping at Costco but it always takes much more time than I planned. After going to Costco with one of our Living Locurto team members, Naomi, I was shocked by how organized and quick she was! As a mom of three and apparently an expert Costco shopper, Naomi has a lot of great tricks and tips up her sleeve! I asked her to share a few time saving Costco shopping tips to help us out during this busy holiday season.

They say time is money, so here are 7 time-saving tips for the next time you go shopping at Costco.

7 Time Saving Tips For Shopping at Costco! Great ideas to save time shopping at Costco. They say time is money, so learn the best time-saving tips for the next time you shop at Costco.

7  Ideas to Save Time Shopping at Costco

We know life can be a struggle. It’s hard to get it all done, especially during the holidays. We hope these simple tips will help save you time and money the next time you shop at Costco. For more time saving tips, check out –> these great organization ideas here.

 

1. Know The Costco Parking Lot

Getting in and out of the parking lot can be a challenge. Avoid the traffic jams and find out if your Costco has a back driveway. Many Costco stores do! If your Costco has a back or lesser used driveway, treat it as your own personal road to retail bliss. It may sound crazy, but parking in the back of the parking lot will save you time just because of the ease of getting in and out of the parking lot.

 

2. Know The Store Layout

Knowing the store layout is just as important as knowing the parking lot. My favorite time-saving Costco tip is to take a list, stick to it, and know where exactly everything is in the store. If you need something from the back of the store, avoid going down the middle aisles. Stick to the side aisles and avoid the throngs of customers jockeying for position around the sample tables.

 

3. Avoid The Busiest Times

Playing bumper carts is no fun. Do a little research and find out when the best times to visit your Costco store are. Generally, Costco is busiest on the weekends, the day or two before a major holiday, or on the first day of a new coupon book.  One of the quietest times to shop at Costco are the days in between coupon books. If you aren’t buying anything on a coupon, go in between sales and enjoy the wide aisles all to yourself.

 

4. Stick To A List

It is so easy to be distracted by all the new shiny items Costco has on display. Stay strong! I’ve shopped so much at Costco that I have developed a master list of items I buy regularly. At home, I’ll review the list and mark which items I need to buy. Then when I arrive at Costco, I’m armed with my list and plan and it seriously saves me time AND money! Click here for cute free printable lists.

5. Skip The Samples

Ah, the samples. Everyone loves the Costco samples. Steer clear, as tasty as they may look! This is a time pitfall at Costco, with hordes of shoppers gathering around waiting for the toaster oven timer to ding. Be honest with yourself: You can live without the little morsel, but you’ll never get your precious time back…move along!

 

6. Look For A Fast Cashier

Sometimes the longest line is also the fastest line. Look for a cashier that is really moving customers through quickly. Head for a line with two Costco employees (one scanning and one loading the cart up). If you shop as much as I do at Costco, you may even find a favorite cashier that is always super fast and efficient.

 

7. Have Your Car Trunk Ready To Load

Make sure your trunk is empty so that loading your Costco purchases into your car will be a breeze. Costco doesn’t provide shopping bags, but don’t fall for the stiff cardboard boxes they offer to hold your groceries! Instead, bring your own shopping bags and load your purchases up yourself.

Make sure you have a good insulated bag ready for your frozen items. This may sound counter-intuitive to saving time, but once you arrive home, simply carrying the bags into your home will be so much easier. And you won’t have that stiff cardboard box to deal with.

Days of the Week Closet Tags

Printable Days of the Week Closet Tags are a simple way to get organized for back to school and help kids get dressed on their own in the mornings!

Printable Days of the Week Closet Tags are a simple way to get organized for back to school and help kids get dressed on their own in the mornings!

Printable Days of the Week Closet Tags

I love this idea for Days of the Week Closet Tags that I came up with to help keep my kids organized and ready for school. It’s been a lifesaver! No more stressful mornings and my kids learned their days of the weeks at a very young age.

Getting organized for back to school and ready for my kid’s daily routines is a huge help for a busy mom like me. To make mornings much easier, we chose clothes for each day of the week and hung them on a low closet rack for my kids to reach. Then I designed some cute Days of the Week Tags to hang on each outfit’s hanger. The Days of the Week Closet Tags have the day of the week written out and a giant letter for kids not old enough to read.

How the Days of the Week Closet Tags Work

To help you visualize how these tags work, I’m sharing a photo of my son’s closet from when he was in kindergarten. We still do this and he is now going into the 5th grade!

The night before school, he takes the designated outfit off of the hangers and lays it on the floor by his door. This way he won’t forget to get dressed before coming downstairs. We usually make silly poses with the clothes and that makes it even more fun!

These Days of the Week Closet Tags are also perfect for my daughter, because she can go a little crazy on the layering! This causes much less decision making stress in the morning! I designed the pastel pinks and purple Days of the Week tags for her closet.

Why Dyson is the Best Vacuum Ever

This article is a sponsored post on behalf of Dyson.  All opinions are my own.

Your suspicions were correct, Dyson really is the best vacuum ever.  Not only do Dyson Vacuum’s look cool, they get the job done.  Dyson was kind enough to send me one of their V7’s one year ago and I am still in love.  It is truly the nicest vacuum I’ve ever owned and I’m going to tell you why.

1. It’s Lightweight

My husbands first reaction to our new Dyson was that it was definitely too small to actually clean anything.  It looks like it would only work on tile or wood floors, but for the first time living in our house, we had vacuum lines in our carpet after I vacuumed!  I have been continually surprised at how well this little vacuum has cleaned my floors-and continues to 1 year later!

He also had some complaints about the size of the dust chamber.  I did too until I realized how easy it was to empty it.  It doesn’t require going out to our dumpster like a normal size vacuum would because it’s small enough to just empty into a kitchen trash.  The way it’s set up I don’t even get my hands dirty!

2. It’s cordless

I have always refused to be a daily vacuumer and cords have been a big reason why.  It is such a pain to drag a heavy vacuum out of the closet, plug it in, vacuum one floor, unplug and take the cord with you, plug back in and do this over and over.  I am inherently clumsy and amazed at just how many times I can trip over a cord and also accidentally unplug my vacuum while using it.  It’s embarrassing how much of a hassle this is for me.  Dyson has saved my bacon and made my life 10 times easier by just removing the entire ordeal.  Their vacuum hangs on a charging dock and has a battery life long enough to easily vacuum one floor of a house (up to 30 minutes of fade-free suction).  

3. It’s Convenient

Until now, I would rarely bother to vacuum my car.  Once again, it was such a hassle.  I had to find an extension cord, haul my heavy vac out to the garage, plug it in and try not to get to tangled up in the cords.  I find myself using my Dyson to vacuum my car all the time!  The Dyson easily trasitions to a hand-held vacuuming, making vacuuming really easy so I don’t mind doing it!  It has lowered my stress level when my kids want to munch in the car or when my adult friends want to ride with us knowing I can quickly and easily clean up!

4. It’s Kid-Friendly

Because this vacuum is so light, cordless and easy to use I haven’t felt bad about giving my children more vacuuming chores!  They love it because it’s pink and I love it because now I can assign them tasks that involve vacuuming (including cleaning up their own messes in the car!).  

After using this vacuum in my home of 3 kids, a cat, a dog and all of the neighborhood children for a year now I can absolutely testify that it keeps going and going and has lasted through the test of time!  I just hope you love it as much as I have!  They have a 90 day money back guarantee and warranty the vacuum for 2 full years so it’s definitely worth a try!

The Frazzled Moms Guide to Staying Sane This School Year

For some less than perfect, unorganized moms, the return to school brings more than the average level of stress and yes, even dread. I don’t know when the descent took place, but somewhere between Generation X and millennial movement, school has become so much more involved for parents, and so much more complex than it used to be. Any mother searching for three pairs of matching socks for multiple children each morning while couch-diving for lunch change at 7 a.m. knows this is where it gets real. I can hardly keep track of the school calendar alone, admittedly standing at the bus stop not once, but twice last year before realizing it’s a professional development day, therefore, no school. Sigh.

With more homework signature requirements than a congressional bill, checks needed for book fairs and candy-o-grams and parental involvement in a hundred different little projects, school can feel more bureaucratic than the IRS. In one month I’ve had to create a foot-long boat, decorate a turkey in ways that symbolize our family culture (who makes this stuff up?!), and write two handwritten notes as my children’s “pen pal,” thanks to another program initiated by an over- zealous PTO president. And who on the green earth do they think makes these projects for first graders? My youngest can hardly wipe his butt, let alone construct a watercraft with raw materials.

stay organized back to school

And let’s not forget the most overlooked, underappreciated school task that is the making of the lunches, lovingly prepared by executive chef mama at 9:30 p.m. with one eye open each night. No amount of blasting my favorite Jesus Culture Pandora station makes this assembly line of joy a rewarding experience. Although there are exceptions. I have a friend with six kids who makes a regular practice of posting a photo of her homemade, aesthetically pleasing lunch lineup on Instagram. And Facebook. Each day a different ensemble, but always with a fresh side of arugula-mandarin salad. I’m happy her children are experiencing culinary magic at lunchtime, but stuff like this drives me into deep dejection, comparing this to the squished Ziploc bags of pepperoni wraps and PB&J my kids pull out every day. I’m always tempted to upload a photo of three Lunchables with the caption: “Lunches are done—time for a bath!” I know I’d get more likes.

Managing school activities and requirements can be exhausting, but I’ve found some helpful tips and tactics to help maintain sanity, especially with school-aged kids:

  • Always. And I mean always, plan outfits (socks are the key!), pack lunches, hunt down school library books, sign homework, complete permission slips, and find any necessary money, the night before. There is nothing worse than dumpster diving in the couch for hot lunch quarters at 7:30 a.m. “Who took the singles out of my purse?!” or cringing as your first grader boards the bus with flagrantly mismatched socks. “Navy and turquoise are both in the blue family, honey—now run!”
  • Resist the overwhelming temptation to ignore school and teacher newsletters. If you can fight your way past the clip art, emojis, and superfluous details about which life cycles, seasons, sight words, and number charts your child is learning at that exact moment in time, you’ll find some informational treasures. I deleted all e-newsletters until standing at the bus stop not once, until sending my kids to school in their pj’s after missing the “slumber party Friday has been rescheduled” email. Sigh.
  • Turn homework time into quality time, especially if you have more than one child, where it can be difficult giving them undivided attention. Even when they don’t necessarily need help, I think kids like knowing you’re there and their work matters to us. Sometimes it can be the only twenty minutes of alone time you really spend together.
  • Try to bang out the homework before dinner, or right after dinner, if the kids have afterschool activities. There are few weeknight surprises as frustrating as your child announcing he has an extra homework page, reading assignment, or heaven help us, some kind of project he “forgot” about at 8:00 p.m. Any mother cutting up library-loaned magazines (Jesus forgives) in search of warm climate amphibians need only learn this lesson once.

Here’s to a new year of fresh starts, pre-packed lunches, readily available ice cream money, endlessly matching socks, and scoring the good bus driver who smiles at the kids no matter what. Amen.
