BISSELL® Stomp ‘N Go® – Stomp Out Stains

BISSELL® Stomp ‘N Go®  Stain Pads

My carpets are a mess. As the mother of three small children, the remnants of their childhood live in the stains on my carpets. Every room seems to have something that needs to be cleaned or covered with furniture. We have a rule about the kids never leaving the kitchen with food or drink but that doesn’t always happen. Often times I say to my husband that we should just rip everything out and have wood floors only. Wouldn’t that {Read More}

Signing Contracts

I sign contracts on a weekly basis. Ever since my business became primarily an online business, I have been searching for additional options for the seemingly endless printing of documents, signing them, scanning them and then emailing them back to the person who originally sent them. I used to have a boss whose signature I had on my computer. When a document needed to be signed, I would just insert his signature into the document and go. Seriously, not very {Read More}

A Day Made Better with OfficeMax

OfficeMax A Day Made Better Logo - Orange

One of the best benefits of being a blogger is being able to give back. I started this blog to write and then one of the side benefits was all of the philanthropic opportunities that have come my way. I feel like Oprah sometimes but of course, on a much smaller scale. Ever since my children began attending public school several years ago, I have made it my mission to see what I could provide for the classroom so the {Read More}

Office Work

Frequently in my current position I am called upon to create forms. We need forms for every single project that comes across my desk and I am the one tasked with creating, maintaining and making certain these forms are filled out properly. In fact, this happens on almost a daily basis. I need forms for some reason or another and many of these forms I use to track campaigns that I am working on. Almost every single form that I {Read More}

Boy Scouts of America

I absolutely could not wait until my son was the age where he could join Boy Scouts. The second he started school, my {Read More}
