Quick Microwave Fix

Does your microwave need cleaning, but you hate dealing with hard to clean crusty spills?  Check out this quick fix!
After you wash dishes pour/dump a tablespoon of baking soda on your wet sponge.  Pop that sucker into the microwave and nuke for 2 to 4 minutes.  With rubber gloves on {the sponge is going to be hot, hot, hot} wipe down the inside of the microwave.
The baking soda is a great cleaning agent, and the steam from the super hot sponge will have helped to soften the crusties in the microwave.  An added bonus is that the baking soda will help neutralize any smell you sponge is taking on, and the nuking will help kill any bacteria living in you sponge!

You can also stick a microwavealbe measuring cup full of several cups of water, nuke that for 6 minutes, and then wipe down the microwave.

  6. Brilliant! I used to just toss a mug of water in there for a minute to "loosen the crusties" but your sponge idea is waaaay better. Gonna do that from now on. Thanks!

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them.

Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…
