Every time I see a bottle of Windex® I can’t help but think of the dad from My Big Fat Greek Wedding. What is it about accents and different cultures that is so entertaining? I’m sure its because my own mom is from another country (Brazil), and we loved teasing her about her cute accent and Brazilian quirks while we were growing up.

Did you know they’re making My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (rated PG­-13)? Its coming to theaters March 25th and I can’t wait use this $3 off Coupon for my tickets! The first film’s message of loving your family and all of their quirks has always resonated with me. Spending time with my family is really important to my husband and I, I like movies that bring our family together. It’s been awhile since the first movie came out, so I’m totally looking forward to see what they do with the characters and storyline for the second one. I can only hope I learn a few new uses for Windex® from the new movie.

Let’s get real for just a minute. This is what my bathroom looks like after a week of normal wear and tear. I know what your thinking… No. I don’t live in Kansas. Who else finds it incredibly difficult to keep their bathroom sink and counter clean during the week? I’m not sure why make-up, washing your face, brushing your hair and teeth make such a mess… but they do. I will be the first to admit that this room (for obvious reasons) is the hardest for me to stay on top of. Windex® is perfect for cleaning many surfaces including: windows, mirrors, sealed granite and marble, glass shower doors, chrome bathroom fixtures, tile and more. So in an effort to create a better system for keeping my bathroom organized, here’s what I’ve learned and a few changes I’ve made.Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 1.34.47 PMOrganizing Drawers

Drawer organization can be tricky because it can start to feel like a bottomless pit that eats whatever you throw in there. By using little baskets as separators, you can give each thing a home. Here is my drawer before picture:Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 1.33.34 PMThis is the same drawer after cleaning lots of hair and dust with Windex® , just a little fine tuning.

This drawer, with larger baskets, holds my skincare, body lotions and haircare products. I also gave this drawer a good dusting and threw out old empty bottles.Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 1.26.19 PMUse Vertical Space Under The Sink

Stackable bins will transform your under the sink storage. This is my biggest storage secret for my under the sink areas and this same concept works wonderfully in my pantry too. To help keep my countertops free from water splatters and dust, I added a couple bottles of  Windex® original, Windex® with Vinegar and a microfiber towel to be able to clean up as messes happen. If you don’t have time in the moment (day you’re running late) make it a point to do a wipe down after your bedtime routine.
