Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets {Product Review}

Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets
I am completely in love with these new laundry sheets from Purex.  They are a convenient all in one laundry product, that go from the washer to the dryer with little thought.  You just drop one sheet into the washer when you start the load and let it do it's work.  The perfect amount of detergent is provided in the sheet to clean almost any load of clothes, no matter how dirty. 
You leave it in with the clothes when you switch them over to the dryer and they come out as soft and fluffy as anyone could ask for.  The sheets leave a fresh clean scent behind.  If you haven't tried these yet, you should.  They can be purchased at your local grocer or places like Walmart, Target, Kmart and more.

Busy Days

I haven't had much time to update our blog lately.  I've been working on a full home organizational makeover.  I'm hoping to have it all finished soon, if life will stop throwing stones in my path.

Thus far, I have cleaned out the kitchen and reorganized our communication area.  I'm using a menu plan for daily meals now.  I've gone through about 75% of our clothing, put some on Ebay and donated others, as well as putting away the items that Laycie will grow into. 

To do on my list is to put the classroom back together, organizing the bookshelves, and going through all of the kids toys.  I also want to decorate for fall in the next week or so. 

I'm extremely happy that I have a replacement usb cord for my camera so now I can take new pictures for both home and this blog.  It's the little things that keep me happy.

I was sitting around thinking the past few days that I'd also like to get back into reviewing, just to give myself something to do for fun. 

So that's what's going on with us now.  Hopefully, I'll have some great future updates coming soon.
