Who doesn’t need and want to make life just a little bit easier? I know I do, even the smallest of tasks can become daunting with the monotony of the day-to-day chores and hectic schedules. So…with that being said, let’s take a look!

2. If your kids are always using new cups, give them their own designated cups with magnets to stick to the fridge.
