oxiclean-laundry-back-to-school-tips

Over the summer months, I get a bit of a break on the laundry. Well, not the amount of, I wish.Rather, our summer laundry consists of mostly swimsuits and towels, and camping clothing. So, the majority of the summer is spent doing what I like to call 'lazy-laundry', thoughtless wash and go type of cleaning.

I think back to all the items I've reviewed here on My Organized Chaos {6 years worth!}, and wish I could easily do a follow up on those reviews.

Alas, that would literally take forever {but you can always send me an email if you do have any questions, … [Read more...]

TOYSTORYOFTERROR_review

Toy Story is one of our all-time favourites and I'm pretty sure it'll remain that way for many years. The first feature-length computer-animated film and the first theatrical film produced by Pixar - it broke molds and raised the bar for future animated films.
