important document list

Happy Monday! We are in our last few days of the spring organizing & cleaning challenge and if you haven't noticed, we've not talked about paper at all! Since it's a new week, it's a new topic so here we go... Today you are going to look for and gather all your important documents.

It's the almost the weekend and we are beginning to wind down the spring organizing & cleaning challenge. You've done great! Today we are talking about batteries.

Otherwise, if you are creating a ... [Continue Reading]

Cleaning your fridge is a project that CAN take just a couple of hours, but this spring organizing & cleaning challenge is designed to just take 30 minutes or so a day. I feel like my own fridge needs a good cleaning every couple of months, but just wiping the shelves makes a huge difference! Today is our last day in the fridge, but we also tackle the freezer!  Since we have already done the shelves and fruit and veggie drawers on Days 13 and 14, today we will pull ... [Continue Reading]
