Making Life Easier

I am far from a domestic diva. As a matter of fact on any given day in my home you will see piles of clean clothes that need to be folded and put away, clean dishes in my dishwasher and a bit of general disarray. I have also always been somewhat of a pack rat and have a tendency to keep tons of paper lying around. In a perfect world, I'd have someone come in and help me get organized but unfortunately that is not going to happen. I also suspect that even if I were gifted with a home organizer that organization would be short-lived, you know what they say - old habits die hard!

As a result of my general disorganization, I tend to leave heavy cleaning duties until they are absolutely necessary. Case in point? My oven. My old oven was not self cleaning so I would have to pull out the foaming cleaners and subject myself to the noxious fumes and use elbow grease to get that job done. Fortunately for me, those days are over! Thankfully, I am a Frigidaire Testdrive mom and I have been given a standing range that is self-cleaning and will do the work for me. All I am required to do is remove the oven racks, press two buttons and let the cleaning begin! Here is a quick vlog that I did to show you just how simple cleaning my oven has become (Please excuse my crazy appearance, in my attempt to get some things accomplished today make-up was not a priority!)




My self-cleaning oven is saving me time, no longer do I have to get on my knees and spend hours cleaning. I can use that time to try and do other things like grocery shop and perhaps tackle those loads of laundry!

My problem isn't the organizing, it's finding the time to sit and do it. Blah.

Oh how I'd love to trade ovens wit you! Ours doesn't self clean either so it's elbow grease for me. Be sure to let us know how it works.

Much as I love to clean, oven cleaning is SO not my favorite. How nice it would be to have a self cleaning oven; it's one appliance that he could give me for a gift with no complaints from me.
