Semi Clean this Spring

Spring is just around the corner, but you may not feel ready to tackle a top to bottom spring clean just yet. That's OK! Just tackle the big job one step at a time. For instance, get out the vacuum, attach the crevice tool and whisk dirt out of small spaces such as window frames, sliding door tracks and under the fridge and stove. 

What else can you attack with your crevice tool? Use it to suck the accumulated dust and lint out of the vents on your hairdryer and your clothes dryer. Both machines will perform better and dry faster! Accumulated dust and lint can become a fire hazard if the dust buildup prevents air from circulating through the vents.

Hints for Handling Your Gift List

How do you handle your holiday wish lists? Sometimes the simplest hints are the best. For years I have been using the same easy to implement method.

  • I purchase the tiniest address book I can find and assign one page for each person on my guest list.
  • I record their sizes, colour and style preferences.
  • I include family members, friends, hairdresser and all service providers.
  • I keep the list inside my wallet so it can quickly and easily be updated.
  • Information for stocking gifts is also recorded.
  • I can frequently review what I have purchased to keep my budget on track.
  • As I wrap gifts I check them off!
  • If certain gifts need to be hidden I record where they were put.
  • I also list ideas and purchases of hostess gifts to keep on hand.

There are many benefits to this system. It is lightweight and portable, but most importantly since I keep the lists year after year, it helps me to prevent repeating gift ideas. Who wants to get a sweater or tie year after year?
