• Did that the last 2 days, including my computer installation.
  • Yes, every time my springs start to rust...jk...I do, I open up all windows while I'm cleaning so my house can air out.
  • I'm not able to do what I used to. And I can't afford to hire someone. I could get help if I just ask, but I really don't like asking for help. And sometimes I delude myself into thinking I can if I can just fix this or that, I'll be able. But I'm usually disappointed every time I try because I can't stand for long without severe back pain. Of course that may get better once my ovarian cyst is fixed... (see what I mean?) I did get a really nice metal shelving unit the other day thinking it would help me tidy my kitchen and get rid of two plastic drawer units I'm using now that are not sturdy enough to store canned goods and pans, but it doesn't fit like I had hoped. My kitchen is very small and I can't use the cabinets because I'm too short to reach anything. The shelving unit is awesome though! It will hold 300 lbs per shelf! And you can't find shelves like this at yard sales or thrift stores. I also got some dirt (I wasn't nearly as thrilled about paying for dirt!!) so the plants can go outside now. And I found a beautiful comforter at the thrift store that looks really good on my couch. I was fairly sick the month of Feb. and got behind on some things spending more time in bed, but when I started feeling a little better after a medication adjustment, I was able to catch up a little. I do feel better when things are clean, but with my physical limitations I can only do it at a slow and steady pace rather than the flourish I had when I was younger and could get the majority of it done on a nice spring weekend. And I'd rather give things away than throw them away. I guess that comes from being poor all my life. Ok, I'll admit probably a little ocd in the mix as well. I could make [whatever] out of that! Or so and so might want it...
  • something has to inspire me. Still waiting for that inspiration.
  • no,with the size of my room its ridiculous. it's 10 x 10 .
  • no, i live alone, i just clean when i need to
  • Yes I do when winter comes to a close, I prepare myself to take a good look at my home and do a complete cleaning. I follow a few of these tips and it will be well on your way to a clean and more organized home for spring. Small manageable goals will make the process much easier to get through. It can be fun to challenge yourself and get the job done more quickly than you expected. Try using natural cleaning products in place of harsh chemicals. These are better for the environment and safe around pets and children Selling some of your unwanted items not only frees up space, but gives you money to invest in new things. For items that don’t carry a great resale value, donate it to the local thrift store or you can sell it to a Pawn Shop like the on we have.
  • Yep, spring cleaning is celebrated in my household. It improves air quality and makes you feel better.
  • 2020 - I already have my first box ready to donate. All my old homework has to go. No reason to keep it. No one but me and the silverfish care about it. I'm sure there are silverfish in this state. They are everywhere.

      Yay you! I packed up two grocery bags full (of sweaters mostly) to donate to First Light, but then covid 19 broke out and she didn't come. I still have another bag full to pack up, and I threw away a bunch of stuff too! Still just the tip of the iceberg!
