Tip #36- Use Slow Cooker Liners for easy clean up

With fall approaching and football season here it’s time to break out the crock-pot!  There is nothing easier and better than a slowly simmered meal from the crock-pot or queso on game day.  Make cleaning up easy too by using slow cooker liners.  Before I stumbled across these my husband and I would fight over who had to clean the leftover cheese out of the crock pot, a most unpleasant task.  Now I always line my crock pot on game day before making queso and there’s no mess to clean up.  Check out  some of our favorite Game Day Treats & my favorite Crock Pot Recipes on Pinterest.

To solve this problem we came up with a chart of rewards & consequences related to his behavior at school.

As a systemized person I basically analyze and have a “system” for everything I do.  From Grocery Shopping, Menu Planning and even the way I do laundry.  Nobody likes doing it but it must be done.  I’m sharing my easy laundry system for getting ALL your laundry done in two days before lunch.
