Long johns are an ideal way of keeping warm during our long Canadian winters. Whereas it is common to wear outer garments to keep other parts of our body warm, it is rare for us to wear snow pants, and so that is why long johns are so important. They provide that extra layer between our pants and our skin, and so you should make sure that the long johns you choose are made of comfortable fabrics, such as a cotton and polyester blend.

When buying a laundry hamper, you should first consider whether you need a single, double or triple hamper / sorter. The advantage of the double and triple models is that you can put in your dirty laundry in the different bins according to colors or fabrics, saving you sorting time on laundry day.
Next you should consider whether you want a hamper with wheels, since they are great for pulling up right next to the washing machine without much effort. If your laundry room is on another floor though, you may want a hamper without wheels. Material should also be considered. Some hampers have sturdy steel frames, other are wicker, some are mesh (these can be handy for carrying to the laundromat, since they are lighter), and some are wood cabinets, looking more like an attractive piece of furniture.

A loft bed is a perfect solution to space problems in a child’s room. Since the bed is elevated, it clears up room below. Room that can be used to place a desk or simply to use as a play area. Of course, some models already have a desk incorporated in that space, while some others let you use the space as you wish. As space-savers, they are also great for rooms that two kids share. And kids love loft beds because they get to go up stairs or a ladder to their mattress, and because the space under the bed becomes a sort of personal club-house. A win-win for kids and parents alike.
