The Best of Both (Mopping) Worlds!

The other day I needed to mop but realized I was all out of those expensive little disposable mop pads. But seriously...the floor NEEDED to be mopped. I wasn't keen on the idea of getting down on my hands and knees to scrub it, so I tried using laundry clips to attach an old cloth diaper to the end of the Swiffer. I was afraid the clips would pop off and was cursing myself for not having safety pins, but I was actually able to scrub pretty hard without it even budging. It was great (and free)! I don't think I'll ever buy a $12 box of mopping pads again.

Air Popped Popcorn with Coconut Oil

This is my kids new favorite after-school snack. I love that it's fast and easy, so I thought I'd pass the idea along. Pop some popcorn using an airpopper. Mix in desired amount of melted coconut oil (I usually use between 1/2 - 1 Tbs. per batch - which I think is about 5 Cups). Salt to taste and enjoy!
