Where local moms share, learn and grow together.

Two things you will not hear this summer in my house:
1.  "If you don't clean up this playroom, I am going to clean up this playroom with a garbage bag!"
2.  "If you clean your playroom, Mommy will let you stay up fifteen minutes late."

You see, I will not rely on threats and bribes to keep my house clean this summer while the kiddies are home from school.  Instead, I will rely on this nifty little box I've made.  {It reads: You left it out, I picked it up. I've got your stuff, you're out of luck. To get it back, you must do a CHORE, and then it's yours just like before."}

This Ransom Box is going to be a life-saver this summer, I just know it!  I've been known to literally toss a toy into the garbage after threatening for it to be picked up several times, and this box will not only spare the expense of tossing a perfectly good toy, but will help keep our home even tidier by giving my kids a chance to bail their toys out in lieu of performing a chore.  It will be a great way to teach a lesson in consequences, and a discipline tool that will spare me {& the kids!} from raising my voice.
