I like most people hate spring cleaning my house, but its got to be done. I set a goal for myself of cleaning one room or closet a day. Some rooms take longer and i may take two or three days to do them. It may take me a few weeks doing it this way but i don't feel overwhelmed and i still have...
This time of the year there are a lot of great bargains out there.
I buy things on sale that i can use for gifts throughout the year.
Toys for kids birthday parties, crafts or winter cloths for next winter for my granddaughter.
I reuse christmas bags from the year before if they are still in good condition. I also use christmas table cloths to wrap some of the gifts that are too big to wrap. I just drape them over the gift , and tuck the ends under the gift.
Clothes instead of tossing those clothes that are too big after losing weight try taking them in. I have had success with a lot of my summer shirts. I took them in on the sides and they now fit me well.
Whenever i go into a department store i always look into the clearance racks first. It is surprising how much money I have saved doing this. Today i found a very nice jogging set for my granddaughter for a $1, retail price was $12. I have also pick up a $80 dress for myself for only $15.
