Best Ways to Clean your Refrigerator and Keep it Clean!

There is nothing quite as rewarding as having an organized and clean refrigerator. When a fridge is properly organized it makes it so much easier to navigate. Sometimes though, it just seems easier to ignore the chaos and the gunk. The sticky patch of syrup on the bottom shelf and the little pieces of dried up spinach in the vegetable drawer make you feel as though you might pull your hair out, but you don’t want to spend the time cleaning it. Instead, you just close the door and pretend it’s not there. I know I'm not the only one, so please don't judge my friends.

Occasionally, it is nice to give your whole refrigerator a good scrub down to get all the yucky stuff off. While emptying the entire fridge can seem overwhelming, it is sometime a necessary evil. The temporary stress you will feel is far more than worth it once you can marvel at your clean fridge. Make that time spent worthwhile and keep your fridge clean longer with these easy tips.

5 Places to Travel with Kids Before They Turn 18

You know what they say about parenting...the days are long but the years are short. Well, we experienced just that about seven years ago, when we realized it wouldn't be long until our family of five was scattered. The kids grow up and adult responsibilities start to dictate your kids schedules. College spring breaks don't align with your school-aged kids spring breaks, summers are for working to pay off student loans and expenses. Internships, jobs and girlfriends start taking priority over family time. It's normal and good but before you know it travel with your family just changes. We created a family travel bucket list. We sat down with the kids and created a list of the places we wanted to visit as a family. We got all of the places checked off the list just after my oldest graduated from high school. Maybe you want to create a family travel bucket list too. Or you just want to find somewhere fun to travel with your kids before they turn 18. Either way, I've got some ideas for you.
