I love being organized although I am not a natural organizer. I take ideas from other bloggers and use them. My husband was so happy when he saw my Income Tax Organizer. Each section has a big area to file those needed receipts, paperwork, donations and other important paperwork. You can categorize each compartment by month or label it by what paperwork you are adding. This has been a lifesaver since we have bought and sold a home this year and will need to keep all this paperwork for tax records.

I also love the 3-in-1 SuperTab Folders. These will come in handy for my daughter who is a real estate agent. She claimed them already. Each file is for a customer and she is able to keep all of the paperwork needed for each customer together. She is able to keep everything in one folder but separated so she can have easy access. The teacher in me would and could have used these for each student to keep not only their work but all their information in one folder. There are so many options you could do with these.

Cell Phone Glass Screen Protector intelliGLASS

I am the worlds worst “keeper of the cell phone”. I literally lose, drop or break my phone a couple times a year. I always get the insurance for it but this time I was introduced to a glass protector and am so excited to say that I love it! Of course I was used to breaking my screen or phone that the first time I dropped it and saw the screen cracked again, I had heart failure. I could only imagine what my husband would say…  It was then my daughter said that it was the protector that cracked not my phone. So now I am on my second screen protector and still have the same phone. A new record for me!

I love the intelliGLASS screen protector it has proven to stand up to my cell phone abuse. This is easy to install and at a fraction of the cost to purchase it at a cell phone retail store. Check it out here: IntelliGlass Screen Protector and use this code to save 20% (INTELLI20)!! You choose the type phone you have, then order it. I suggest you use one if you don’t like paying those outrageous fees to replace the screen!

Texas Pete Hot Sauce Perfect for Chili Dogs!! #tailgate

Chili Dog Mix – Texas Pete Hot Sauce

14044902_10154003832773155_1994739785_o

I am in charge of the chili for our tailgating party so each year I work on a new twist to my recipe to make that perfect chili for our hot dogs. I love trying different products to make the perfect chili, and since I do not like heart burn, I have found that making it from scratch is my best method and the one that gets the most raves. Of course my secret is the Texas Pete Hot Sauce. Without it my recipe is bland but the minute I add it everyone comments on how awesome it is.

14060324_10154003832873155_1972012634_o

Here is my secret recipe to making the best tailgating chili ever…

2 pounds of hamburger meat sauteed with onion a little garlic salt, salt and pepper. (Cook until fully cooked then drain grease).

1 Can Tomato paste, about 4 to 5 tomatoes, I love using fresh chopped up.

Chili powder to taste, more salt and pepper.

I used dried kidney beans, soak for one hour, boil for one hour drain and then add to sauce. (they need to cook about 90 minutes to be fully cooked).

Add about 10 drops of Texas Pete’s Hot Sauce.

Stir and let cook on low for about two hours. I usually add about 5 – 10 more drops of Texas Pete before serving. This gives it the best flavor.

We use Texas Pete’s Hot Sauce on just about everything from grilled oysters to Bloody Mary’s. This flavor is good with everything! If you are looking for something not too hot with a good flavor that everyone will enjoy then you need to try it!

We also like to use it on wings, soak the wings in the Texas Pete overnight and then grill them with a little salt and they are a hit especially at our tailgates.
