Friday Find: Ryobi 18-volt ONE+ EVERCHARGE Hand Vacuum

Friday Find: Ryobi 18-Volt ONE+ EVERCHARGE Hand Vacuum | Ordered and OrganizedLast week, I posted about how much easier cleaning is with my new broom. But what about a dust pan? Actually, I accidentally left mine behind when I moved earlier this month. But I’m not upset. Because I hate dust pans! I can never pick up everything with them, and they just seem dirty to me. So today I am posting about what I use to pick up what I sweep: a Ryobi 18-volt ONE+ EVERCHARGE Hand Vacuum.

How to Revoke Paypal Authorizations

Ordered and Organized | Financial Clean-Up: How to Revoke Paypal Authorizations

I’m a huge fan of Paypal because it enables me to purchase items and subscriptions online without giving my credit card number to various entities I don’t really know or trust.  The problem with Paypal arises when one of those entities is a subscription or automatic renewal service and renews when you didn’t intend it to.

As an example, my old web host charged my Paypal account a week early in November, around the time of the beginning of my most recent move.  I had a note on my calendar to cancel the account because I knew I would be changing web hosts.  But I hadn’t actually canceled the account at that point because I had not had a chance to import the e-mails in my domain’s e-mail account into my Gmail account.

At any rate, sometimes you just need–or maybe just want–to revoke (remove, delete, cancel, etc.) your Paypal authorizations (also called permissions, payments, etc.).  Here is a step-by-step tutorial to assist you in doing so.

Friday Find: Landhope Push Broom | Ordered and Organized

I’ve been noticeably absent for a while, but I had a good reason:  I moved!  My husband and I sold our 56-year-old ranch house and moved into a nearly brand new home closer to his new job.  The four-month-long ordeal is a story that will give me blog (and ebook) fodder for ages to come.

But I digress.

The contract to sell our previous home required us to leave the house “broom clean.”  According to our realtor, what this vague phrase means is up to interpretation, but at the least, we had to sweep the house after we removed all of our belongings.  And boy, did the house need it!  I thought the floors were relatively clean, but after the beds, couch, and other large pieces of furniture were removed, I found dust bunnies of lint and hair underneath, gathering with other dust bunny friends near the walls.  I was highly dismayed.  I was even more disappointed when I realized the state of my broom after I swept our garage floor three or four times.
