It may never seem like it this year, especially with the couple of [...]

Review and Giveaway: HAAN Agile SI-40 Steam Mop (ends 4/1)


As with many busy moms out there I’m sure, cleaning is not my first choice of how I’d like to spend my time. Between working from home, kids’ activities and trying to keep up with a puppy who likes nothing better than to track muddy paws all over my kitchen floor – well, let’s just [...]

Review: Tide Coldwater #tide #washcold


With 3 active kids in the house, we generate quite a bit of laundry every week. And over the years I’ve tried a few different detergents to see what works the best for us. What I keep coming back to time and again though is the fact that I tend to stick with brands that [...]

Review: Babycakes Cupcake Maker


With 3 little girls in our house, baking is something that I know I should be doing more of. It’s not that I don’t like to bake – I do. And the girls love to watch and help me bake too. But I get nervous with them around the hot oven, especially since my oldest [...]

Review: Clorox ToiletWand System (Giveaway – CLOSED)


After a long, cold winter – I am so glad that it’s officially spring, even if the weather doesn’t quite reflect that fact here in Michigan yet. And along with melted snow and (somewhat) warmer temperatures, another thing I look forward to at this time of year is the opportunity to clear out, clean up [...]

Review and Giveaway: Hefty Basics Paper Plates (CLOSED)


Over the past several years I’ve tried to incorporate small changes here and there to help our family try and become more environmentally conscious and ‘green’ as much as I can. I know we don’t do as much as we probably could, but we recycle, we hand down or donate outgrown clothing, and I try [...]

Morning routine… with Wisk!


Last fall, my girls and I had the chance to try out the new Wisk laundry detergent with Stain Spectrum Technology – we discovered that it tackles grass (protein) stains with no trouble and that it also takes on ketchup (carbohydrate) stains like a pro as well. I’ve had the last assignment for a little [...]

Review: George Foreman Smart Kitchen™ Multicooker


I think I’ve mentioned in the past that I really struggle when it comes to cooking for my family. Mainly because I, a somewhat picky eater, happened to marry someone who is literally the pickiest eater I have ever met. And we therefore happen to be raising three little girls who, well aren’t terribly adventurous [...]

Review and Giveaway: FINISH Quantum and JET-DRY Turbo Dry (CLOSED)


With the holidays upon us, it’s definitely the season of entertaining, big family dinners and lots of cooking and baking going on. All of which – creates ever more dishes to wash, of course. I know our dishwasher seems to work overtime during the months of November and December – with my middle daughter’s birthday [...]

Review and Giveaway: Method Antibac cleaners (CLOSED)


Over the past several years, I’ve been doing what I can to try and make my family more ‘green’ – a little at a time. And especially at this time of year, it becomes an issue I’m very interested in since germs and illnesses are beginning to make their way into our house again, and [...]

Tailgating… with Wisk!


I’ve been having a blast over the past couple of months trying out and testing the new Wisk with Stain Spectrum Technology and doing fun experiments with my girls to really find out how well it does at getting out various stains of different sorts. So far we’ve discovered that Wisk does a great job [...]

Review: George Foreman Evolve Grill


Over the past several weeks, my family has been trying our hardest to make a change. You see, for about the past 7-8 months, we’d gotten into some very bad habits when it came down to dinnertime. And I knew that we had to do something different, for the sake of our budget, our kids’ [...]

Summer Science with Wisk


I’m a parent – which means that by definition I do a lot of laundry. With 3 active kids in the house, I do A LOT of laundry, lol. And generally the way that I test out a new laundry detergent is to stick it in with a load of clothes and see how they [...]

Tackling… carpets (Review: Dyson DC-28 Animal vacuum cleaner)

So this week’s tackle is actually a continuation of one that I’ve been talking about over on my other site for a few weeks now. But I’m posting over here this time again, because it’s also a review of something that has definitely made my life (and my breathing) a lot easier lately. If [...]

Review and Giveaway: Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean Power Sprayer (CLOSED)


To me, ‘Spring Cleaning’ isn’t just about sorting through and re-organizing everything but also about trying to find better solutions to those everyday tasks that drive me crazy as well. Like the bathroom, for example… As anything with kids knows, keeping the bathroom clean is just about a full-time job in itself. And since our [...]

Review and Giveaway: Swiffer SweeperVac (CLOSED)


If I had to name one household chore that I dislike more than any other, it would probably involve floors in some way. Whether vacuuming, mopping, sweeping, etc. – I just can’t seem to ever find a good way to keep my floor as clean as I would like. And of course, it just happens [...]

Review and Giveaway: Flings Pop-Up Recycling Bins (CLOSED)


For the past year or two, I’ve been making small changes here and there to help my family to become more ‘green’, a step at a time. Several months ago, this included signing us up for curbside recycling through our usual garbage hauler. It’s not free – but at only a few extra dollars a [...]

Review and Giveaway: snackTAXI (CLOSED)


With today being Earth Day, I wanted to highlight a product that helps families become just a little more eco-friendly and ‘green’ – and helps keep disposable plastic bags out of landfills as well. I’ve been trying over the past couple of years to make even just small changes with my own family and household [...]

Tackling… my cupboards! With Rubbermaid’s new modular canisters (Giveaway – CLOSED)


Yes, this week I’m moving my Tackle It Tuesday post over here to JAMTOT, and you’ll see more tackling in the weeks and months to come too. Sometimes they’ll involve a review and sometimes not – it just depends on what I’ve tackled lately and whether a specific product was involved. 
So, on to [...]

Review and Giveaway: Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap System (CLOSED)


As with most families, we tend to go through a lot of hand soap. There’s washing of the hands before and after every meal, plus whenever the bathroom is used and of course, just when hands (or faces) tend to get dirty from playing outside, etc. It’s always been a struggle for me to a) [...]

Review: Dyson DC31 Handheld Vacuum


When we first moved into this house, one thing that we knew immediately was that the brand-new white carpeting in the living room and hallway definitely wouldn’t stay white. And it certainly hasn’t – between three kids, three cats and a husband who works outside most of the time, I’d call it more of a [...]

Review: OxiClean Max Force Power Paks and Max Force Gel Stick Pre-Treater


Ever since I’ve been doing first my own, and now my family’s laundry, there have been two criteria that I’ve used to determine whether or not I like a new product well enough to keep buying it. First, it has to work – plain and simple. But along with working well, it also has to [...]

JAMTOT Review Round-Up: ‘Around the House’ Edition (Giveaway – CLOSED)


For 2010, I’ve decided to make a few changes in how I manage this site. I spent almost all of 2009 falling further and further behind on reviews and then feeling horribly guilty about not having posted about products in a timely fashion, if even at all. I know that there’s no requirement that I [...]
