Gwyneth Paltrow, who’s right and who’s wrong…

Gwyneth and Kids

Gwyneth and Kids

Gwyneth Paltrow announced that she will take a break from acting to spend more time with her two children. In an interview with E! News she stated that “things are more difficult for her than other moms, because of the demanding nature and unpredictable schedule of her acting career.”

Grabbing the Media’s attention along with every working mom out there, Mackenzie Dawson decided to respond back with “A working mom’s Open letter to Gwyneth” in the New York Post.”

Once I finished this article I sent the link to my friend Liz; she too is a working mom. Liz opened my eyes saying “I bet it is tough for her – she does travel, she does have to spend time away from her kids, that schedule CAN be grueling. What makes me sad is that we, as moms, all need to start SUPPORTING each other. Enough of this comparing, or trying to make the case why someone else has it better because they stay home or they work or they have an easier job. We are all just trying to do the best we can for our kids and our families, you know?

So Gwyneth and Machenzie, neither one of you are right or wrong. We just need to work together and support each other. The job of a mother is a tough one and making attacks and turning our back on each other will not make it any easier.

So whether you’re a working mom or a stay at home mom, I applaud you. I applaud your ability to juggle household duties along with work duties. I applaud the multitasking and extreme couponing (my sister, mother of 3). I applaud the long days and nights we spend to make our family happy. I applaud every mom out there for doing the best they can.

With that said, Mother’s Day is every day!


Seasonal Clothes


March, 20 2014…First day of spring

It’s that time of year to pack away cold weather clothes for our warm weather ones. Summer is around the corner!

Over the past weekend I found myself in my son’s room going through his closet and dresser. It’s amazing the amount of clothes a one year old has let alone doesn’t fit into anymore. As I start going through his closet, I’m thinking about how big he’s getting and how I’m going to store all these clothes. Luckily for me I did some research. has a great article on storing your seasonal clothes. They talk about choosing the right hangers, storage bins, and things to avoid like cardboard that attracts insects. No thank you!

As an employee at On Campus Marketing, I know we sell lots of Storage Bins and Rhino Trunks. Both are perfect for storing clothes that one day can be worn again.


Whether it’s your child’s closet or your own closet, these helpful tips will go a long way.  So it’s bye for now winter coat, hat and gloves; we’ll see you in 8 months!
