Tips and Tricks Top Two Tuesday!

Today over at Taylor's blog for Top 2 Tuesday the topic is Top 2 Tips. Um, hello, that is like one of my favorite things to write about! If for some crazy reason someone decides to drop by from her lovely blog. First of all hello! If you are looking for tips and tricks for cleaning, organizing, bargain shopping, or wedding planning please click on my tips and tricks Thursday label on the right hand side of the blog!

I don't know if I can pick my top 2 tricks but here are two I learned today while browsing

Here's a kitchen tip-

1. If you tear up when cutting onions stick your head in the freezer for a couple seconds.

Here's a relationship tip-

2. Realize that if you can agree on what constitutes a clean room, you can agree on anything. If you are the kind of person who wants the vacuum tracks on the living-room carpet to last all week, you need to understand that your spouse is physically unable to hover three inches off the floor when traveling from point A to point B. You may have to shoulder the burden of raking the shag rug twice a day yourself. Conversely, if you are the type of person who “gets around ” to wiping up a raw chicken–juice spill on the counter, you should know that if you want to live with other humans, you need to surpass the hygiene standards of, say, the average fraternity-house bathroom. Fortunately, if you can compromise on the red hot–button subject of cleanliness, your marriage is unlikely to be thrown off course by comparatively less volatile topics, like politics, religion, and money.
And just because he is adorable and silly, Blue!

Yes, he poops, we've been over this!


  1. love those tips! I was one of those wanting vaccum lines all week so we compromised with wood floors haha

  2. Great tips!!! I've never heard the freezer one!

  3. Found your blog from Taylor at Top Two Tuesday and love it. I am soon to be a newlywed and could use all the tips I can find. Cleaning we are mutual on but I mostly have to do it and that gets frustrating but its because he is never home anyways so I understand it. Can't wait to read more

  4. Your 2nd tip pretty much summarizes any argument Chad and I have. I am type A neat freak and Chad is very "eventually the dishes will clean themselves right?"

  5. Great tips! :)
    Your wedding ones were good too!

  6. Haha, your marriage tips cracked me up. I love it.

  7. I can only imagine the look I'd get from my husband with my head in the freezer. LOL But I will try it. I heard wearing sunglasses help but then I can't see anything!!! Ack.

  8. hahaha I love tip #2. It's something the future hubby and I talk about ALL THE TIME. :)
