Gosh. It’s been AGES since we’ve had a Lazy Mom Tip on here. I don’t know what happened. Oh wait, summer happened. That’s what.
To make up for my lack of lazy tips, I thought I’d share with you 5 Lazy Mom Quick Tips to help a lazy mom out.
Here we go.
Quick Tip #1:
Stinky bathroom? No air freshener? Spray your shower curtain with body spray or perfume. The scent stays longer because it’s sprayed on the shower curtain and not in the air.
Quick Tip #2:
Cutting board moving all around your counter as you cut? That’s not only annoying, it’s dangerous! A lazy mom needs all her fingers! Place one of those non-slip shelf liners under your cutting board and keep those fingers! (If you don’t have any, use a couple of those rubber jar grippers you use to open cans with under your board.)
Quick Tip #3:
When I need to put leftovers (particularly sauces) into a Ziploc bag to go in the freezer, I learned not so long ago a simple trick that keeps me from having to deal with a messy bag and a saucy kitchen counter. Because I’ve already got enough sauciness to deal with in my children.
Quick Tip #4:
I’ve been using a cleaning technique I found on Pintrest. It’s sort of a lazy mom thing. You take your stove grates & put them in a bag with ammonia overnight (outside) and the grease just wipes off.
It works! My stove looks amazing. I’m never cooking again! ~ Suzie
Quick Tip #5:
I have felt really overwhelmed lately. Our dish washer broke some time ago (like over a year ago…ugh) and I feel like I’m constantly either putting dishes away or cleaning them.
Well, one day I said to myself, “Self. You’re crazy! Why don’t you buy some paper plates and cups?” And I answered back, “*GASP* Can I DO THAT?”. And apparently you CAN do that, because I’ve been using NOTHING but paper plates and plastic cups for about a week now. Not just for lunch…but for DINNER too. I know. I feel so bad!
There’s a very small part of me that feels like I shouldn’t be so lazy, but there’s an even bigger part of me that says, “ZIP IT, YOU! I need a break!” So, probably the average mom has already figured that out, but for some reason it took me 8 long years to allow myself to take that short cut. ~ Traci
