The title mislead me to think it was an article about shopping at IKEA for a day.

"Even the backyard" doesn't apply in southern AZ in the summer. I host a play date weekly in my home and I make sure the living room is free of dishes or any projects I was working on, and then take the opportunity after the play date to clean. The room will be wrecked afterwards, so it doesn't make sense to pick up it vacuum before hand.

Doing renovation and decorating for our first child's room made the house feel like ours, laboring for hours in the tub and baby's room really made it MY house.

I'm the only house on the block that has carpets in the bedroom. In Southern AZ tile is for the entire house.

I'm surprised AT hasn't seen this hack before. It's ALL over Pinterest and mommy blogs. There are lots of creative versions out there- although I do like this color.

Do you have a landline in the bedroom? Keeping my phone in my room is also a question of safety.

After 3 years of split closet living for me, I dumped 2/3s of my waredrob, streamlined my "uniform" and kept 40 pieces that really work for me. Now I fit in one closet and one dresser easily. It was truly freeing.

But by trimming aren't you cutting off the weights?

I had Van Gogh's "fishing in the spring" in my room for years, I asked about it and one of my parents jokingly remarked that a Dutch friend of theirs painted it. I believed them. I about fell over years later when I saw the original in Chicago.

My 'hood got a C, which is a gross misinterpretation of the entire zip code, not the lovely corner we reside in. I agree with other commenters that it's not great so far.

My daughter is 19months old, we've used cloth diapers the entirety, she eats what we eat (no baby foods, necessary). We HAVE been gifted enough toys and clothes, thanks to generous grandparents, who even pay for our one activity- music classes.
That said, we still use our annual zoo pass, children's museum membership and botanical garden membership- all that cost AND benefit her exposure and learning. She has much fewer clothes and toys than other kids we know. In our community (as opposed to cities like DC or NYC) we don't have many free activities, although we do utilize the programs that are available- library story times, etc.

Maybe 3 days, pre-baby I could have gone longer. We cloth diaper, so we never have to run out for any. We could probably do a week of food without having to restock.
Luckily we live in sunny Tucson, so the snow isn't a concern!

I live in Tucson and our dryer broke 14 months ago. I solely line-dry. Jeans, towels, cloth diapers, sheets- everything gets line dried. Our clothes last longer and the sun is a natural bleaching agent, so fewer stains on clothes!
