Ay las Mamas: The Mexican Dust Pan!

Please excuse the kid noise in the back.  I had to Vlog in the Bathroom.   And I really was cleaning up the house.  Hence the no make up, chorriada look! 🙂

    Hey… muy buena idea!
    I’ve used a cardboard cereal box before! Just tear it up and use the square parts as a dustpan. I’ve done it a lot. Sometimes I misplace my dustpan and can’t find it.

    You gotta do, what you gotta do.

    Haha! I sometimes use the junk mail as a dust pan when I can’t find mine. Those thick paper ads are perfect for picking up dirt.
