How do you balance writing and motherhood?

Where do you find writing inspiration?

What's the craziest or funniest thing you felt driven to do while pregnant and nesting? (If there's an image that goes along with your story, please share the link with us!)

Steam cleaning the carpet in the middle of the night, which was preceded by moving all the living room furniture.

Do you try to give back when you declutter? Please share your family traditions for benefitting others.

NL Gassert

Definitely. I go through closets and toy boxes several times a year and everything gets dropped off at the local thrift store.

What are your best tips for Black Friday shopping? (Please include a link if it's relevant.)

NL Gassert

Don’t shop. Seriously. It’s not even Black Friday anymore, it’s morphed into Black Thursday. We’ve never participated. That long weekend was always about family and sleeping in and being lazy. Since my immediate family lives in Europe, I have to mail their gifts before Thanksgiving (it’s a long way from Hawaii to Germany), which in turn means I’m usually done shopping by Black Friday.

Do you have any great tips for removing stains? Whether it's mud on carpets or blood on clothes, we want to hear your best stain-banishing tricks!

½ cup of Borax or washing soda added to a load of laundry does wonders. For carpet or upholstery, I like the chain store spray stain remover for car interior.
