Tackle It Tuesday – #132

Hello Tacklers!

It’s Janice again.

Next week, our new 5M4M resident tackler, will be here starting her new hosting duties.

Choosing one person from a great list of applicants is always so hard. But to keep Tackle It Tuesday running, I need some help. Things are just too crazy busy around here. So I needed to choose someone.

Our new 5M4M resident tackler is…

Jena from Organized Everyday.

Jena is a long time tackler who emailed me several times asking for the “job.” Two weeks ago, when I announced that we were once again looking for a new tackle editor, she emailed me seconds after I hit publish. I figured such eagerness and commitment to TT definitely deserved to be awarded!

Please remember though that we will be regularly featuring GUEST TACKLERS. If you want to be featured as our guest tackler one week, just email us at tackleittuesday at gmail dot com.

So next week, our new 5M4M resident tackler, Jena will be here.

In the meantime, I thought I would share my latest tackle with you.

Today, I had to test out the new Dirt Devil KWIK vacuum for a special giveaway, “The 12 Days of Cleaning,” we are running with Dirt Devil from December 1-12.

The dust and crumbs hiding in my laptop keyboard have been driving me crazy, so today I got to tackle cleaning it up. I must admit, it was an easy, quick tackle. The KWIK desktop detailer is really effective and fun to use.

I could get right under and between the keys with the soft brush tool. After taking my pictures, I even cleaned the outside of my camera too!

Here is my keyboard BEFORE:


And here is my AFTER shot:

The KWIK would definitely be a fun, unique gift to give this holiday season.

And if you want to win one, you could be one of our TWELVE winners! For 12 consecutive days starting December 1 and running until December 12, Dirt Devil will give away 1 KWIK vacuum to one of our readers!

All you have to do is submit an entry form. Click on the button and it will take you to our 5 Minutes for Mom/Dirt Devil entry form.


I sure had fun with this tackle. And now I get to look down at a dust-free, crumb-free keyboard. Ahhh – it looks so good. Thanks Dirt Devil!

We’re making housework blog-able!

Each week on Tuesday, we are posting before and after pictures of a project or trouble area that we tackled this week.

The project can be little or big – whatever you want. Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done. (It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)

Tuesday morning: Mr. Linky is down! You can add your link within your comment, and keep checking back. Sorry.

If you tackled a project this week, just add a comment and add your link below.

Happy tackling ladies…

    Sadly you are feeding one of my pet peeves. Clorox wipes just don’t do the detail. I need to learn to shut the lap top when I go to bed at night to stop the TORMENT!

    Ok, I love the little sticker on your keyboard: SuperMommy!
    My husband has been out there looking for a “Supergirl” t-shirt for me (at a decent price) for Christmas! Sometims that’s how I feel, and hey, if I believe I have superpowers, it inspires me to do more and have confidence in myself! 😛
    Great tackle and nice little gadget you have there. I may have to enter for that little baby! :)
