Household/Organization/Pet Tips

HOUSEHOLD TIPS

  • Keep, Donate, Trash – When tackling closet cleaning, remember KDT. If the garment or item has not been used in a year, get rid of it. Put on some music, set a time to complete task without any distractions and have at it. Once closets are organized, spend 15 minutes 3 times a week to make sure organization is maintained.

ORGANIZATION

  • Everything in its place is a saying that really does hold true. While many of us are too busy or do not have the willpower to put all our belongings where we would like them to be, making a list of what needs to be done and taking each task individually and working on them will bring a resolve to the situation. Knowing that one task has been accomplished off of  the list will give one a motivation to keep on moving forward. Make it more fun and put on your favorite tunes to listen to.
  • Keep a paper bag handy when sorting through your mail so all the recycled papers can immediately be put in there keeping clutter at a minimum. Take 10 to 15 minutes a few times a week to go through your mail, address things that need immediate attention, and file those pending matters in a marked folder making a notation on a calendar for follow up.

CLEANING TIPS

  • To remove hard water stains from dog bowls (ceramic/plastic), cups, etc. Dilute white cider vinegar and let sit 30 minutes. Not only will it be sanitized but also the stains will be gone.
  • Use Hydrogen Peroxide to add to white was instead of bleach. Same result without the chemicals or smell.
  • Cut a fresh lemon in half and use it to sanitize your wooden bread boards and then throw it down the garbage disposal for a fresh scent

PETS

  • Alternative to canned dog food or just as a treat with a meal – use 2 lbs. of ground meat (either lean beef, turkey, or veal) and cook plain.  Add to cooked brown rice and peas and then top off with a little bit of shredded cheddar. Mix together and package for other meals. What is not used immediately, can be frozen in baggies for future use. IMPORTANT – portion control their regular food when adding this mixture. They will love it!Be mindful of ingredients in your pet food.
  • Corn glutens and fillers are unhealthy are provide no nutritional value. Look beyond the fancy packaging or marketing, research and buy quality food. They will need less of it and their coats will shine and stools will be less and solid. You get what you pay for.
  • Keep senior pets (age 7 and up) mobile with joint supplements. For weight control, watch their protein and fat intake in their food. To reduce kidneys from working too hard on older pets a 22% protein content and 14% to 16% fat content would be ideal. Check the labels which clearly state that information and just a reminder – look at those ingredients.
  • Please keep your pets on a leash or in a contained area of your property to alleviate any mishaps that may occur when they are running loose. Responsible pet ownership goes beyond just having a dog. Remember, they take time and are costly but the rewards far outweigh the costs.
