just a weird thing i do.

is it gross that i put an actual pad on my swiffer? i was out of the legit swiffer pads a couple years ago and thought that it would be the same thing if i put a real one on there. and guess what? it is the same thing.  just kind of funny. and people will make fun of you...but make fun of me for saving money. i dare you. this is a lot cheaper than buying the real deal.

anyway, you may wonder who wears such huge pads? these are left over from when i had lila. and yes, all you ladies who haven't had babies,  you do (joyfully) wear these hideous pads for a good while after birthing. i think everyone enjoys the crunchy noise you make when you walk in the room.

oh and i don't use the swiffer cleaning liquid either. i just spray a mixture of vinegar and water all over the floor and then "get my pad on". blaaaahahahaha.

enjoy this tip.use this tip. embrace this tip. get over your embarrassment...

and totally unrelated, please go to my besties blog and see the incredible raffle they are doing to bring their little one home from africa. $10/per entry and the bundles are worth well over $400. worth every penny.
oh and i'll draw a name for the giveaway on friday. maybe monday. who knows. just gives you more time to pray that you'll win.

  1. ONLY you would use such a thing to clean your floor. I'm totally laughing right now...Arle's asking why.

    Those things are gigantic! I would die if I had to use one of them! I'm adding that to my "perks of adopting" list.

    1st- i never had to wear that huge of a pad... with either of my children. they look like diapers!
    2nd- for the love, just go buy the $12 mop&glo mop kit w washable PADS. That's a money saver. u just rinse in the sink & air dry.
    3rd- did i mention you are crazy. but u make me laugh. some things never change

  10. Ok, I was going to say "gross" when I first saw your pictures in this post but I have honestly studied my swiffer wet-jet pad and thought "that looks JUST like a diaper!", so, no judgment here. And I also thought, why does she have those ginormous pads in the first place, and yes, post-baby is all you had to say. Gosh I hate those things, and yes, the worst of all is the noise that you know EVERYONE can hear!! :-P

  14. I've always thought they were the same thing! Glad to know someone was brave (cheap) enough to try it!

    Remember how we were going to be e-BFFs and then I disappeared? I'm lame. But I still like you. And this post reminded me why!

  17. I'm right there with ya, baby! I put light days pads in the top of David's bicycle helmet because he lost the Velcro ones it came with. Again, A LOT cheaper.

    Your frugal friend,

    Lindsay :)

  19. HaHaHAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Can't say I've seen that before :) But I can say those babies are 1 thing I DON'T miss!

  20. that is hilarious...and it reminds me of my least favorite part of child-birthing. Am I the only person that wonders what women did after they had a child BEFORE enormous pads were invented?
    I am ridiculous and geeky.

    Hey here's another cheapo tip. Use microfiber cloths from the automotive dept at walmart instead of the swiffer cloths they are like $5 for 10 and you can wash them and reuse. Perfect for dusting

  23. hahahahaha! i totally think about changing my swiffer's "maxi pad" but i have never taken it that necessary one step further. fabulous advice. and i am not to proud to follow in your footsteps! :)

  24. Just popped over here from Emily's blog and started reading...

    I hate cleaning, but this excellent use for giant pads may actually cause me to bust out my swiffer. You just made my day :o).

  25. Any mama that has "and sometimes i cuss. but i really love Jesus." is someone I need to know more about.
    Found you through Emily's blog.
    Nice pads. I refused to buy more Swiffer pads so I purchased handmade reusable ones, but I totally wish I would have thought about this whole pad thing.
