help me pick a camera bag…

After our house was broken into last July one of the things that we lost were my camera bags, since then we’ve been saving and I’m finally to the point where replacing everything that was lost is finally a possibility. My last camera bag was the standard ‘professional photographer’ bag – but with all the blogging I’ve been doing I’ve decided that I need a bag that I can take with me wherever I go…more of a purse/camera bag. I’ve also heard that these bags make for great diaper bags because of all the compartments and I’ll be needing that very soon! Here are the ones I’ve narrowed it down to:

Let me know your thoughts in the comments – I’d appreciate any input, especially if you’ve had experience with any of these bags!

meyer’s all purpose cleaner and a warning!

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen my excitement over discovering Meyer’s All Purpose cleaner. I’ve been kinda obsessed over finding new and exciting ways to make my house clean…and smelling like basil! Well my findings have brought me a tip for you, well actually a warning!

It all started when I realized that Meyer’s Clean Day Surface Spray is $3.99 for 16 fl oz, but the Meyer’s Clean Day All Purpose Cleaner is $7.99 (I got it for $6.50 at my local health food store) for 32 fl oz. This is significant because to make a 16 oz spray bottle of spray from concentrate you only need to add 3 Tablespoons of All Purpose Cleaner to water – this saves SO much money!!

I have been using this solution as a countertop spray, floor cleaner*, bathroom cleaner, I even used it to clean a mirror (pregnancy = too lazy to go downstairs and get the windex!) and it totally worked like a charm!

Meyer's Clean Day All Purpose Cleaner

A few weeks ago I found a tip about cleaning your microwave on Pinterest. I would totally give credit, but I didn’t even repin it! I just remember it saying something about easily cleaning your microwave by putting a bowl with water and vinegar in the microwave for 5 mins and the steam would release the stains so you could clean it easily. Well, it did work great but I wasn’t really diggin’ the vinegar smell in my kitchen so last night I decided to try putting a few tsp. of Meyer’s All Purpose Cleaner in the water and try it (without the vinegar). I figured that since it was a cleaner it would work just as well and it would *hopefully* make my kitchen smell awesome!

After 2 mins in the microwave all of a sudden I heard a loud ‘POP!’ and my microwave door flew open with hot water flying out of it! I was in shock for a couple seconds and as I cautiously approached there was no damage…I have no idea what happened?! But I wanted to post this so that no one else would try it! I am actually pretty lucky that I wasn’t standing in front of the microwave when it happened – our microwave is up high and it would’ve totally knocked me in the head at a high speed!! Also, the bowl I used was a “shatterproof” bowl, I can’t imagine what would’ve happened if the bowl would’ve smashed and come flying out too! It’s actually pretty scary! So be cautious when using new cleaning concoctions! And DON’T microwave Meyer’s Clean Day All-Purpose Cleaner!

*Quick Tip: Instead of constantly buying Swiffer pads and spray bottles I have discovered that you can buy a washable velco pad from the grocery store for like $8 and then I use the solution in my above spray bottle to clean the floors. This post is turning into quite the money saver!!

If you have any questions about the method’s to my madness…ask in the comments :)
