Review: Personal Microderm

I was asked to review the Personal Microderm, a microdermabrasion at home product by SkinCareRx. I'm not sure how this relates to organizing, but who would refuse?

The personal microderm is easy to use once you get used to it. It is a small hand-held appliance with two sizes of rotating heads - one for the face and one for the body.

It only took a few minutes to go over my face and hands, the areas I was most concerned about. Both areas look improved after just three uses. And it's so nice to use it right at home. 

Organizing Summer Fun When Everyone is Bored: A Visual Scavenger Hunt

Gotta squeeze some more fun in before summer ends!

Visual Scavenger Hunt - hide small items out in the open (either inside or outside), but blending with surroundings.

Example: chocolate chip on a brown window sill.  Things to hide: paper clip, staple, rubber band,  penny, twist tie, chocolate chip,  raisin, birthday candle , red hot, piece of gum, push pin, nail, balloon, screw, button, key, straight pin, golf tee.

Give each person a list of all items “hidden.” They write down where the item is located without moving it or giving away the location. The one who finds the most items wins.

This can be added to the decathlon as one of the games.
