Lessons I Learned Recently

1. Cleaning and dejunking burns lots of calories.

2. If your house is dirty and disorganized it takes a lot of effort to get it presentable for an appraisor to come.

3. If you cleaned and dejunked on a more regular basis you wouldn't need to borrow the neighbors garbage and recycle bins.

4. When you're out of shape and you do heavy cleaning and dejunking of your home you can injure your knee and have to do month-end with an icepack strapped to it.

5. When you hoard boxes for months thinking that you're going to need them someday when you finally decide to dejunk the basement and the day finally comes you will have saved four times more than you'll ever use. (Luckily, your daughters BFF comes over and asks if you have boxes because she's moving so you can come to her rescue and have your problem solved all at the same time.)

The Government Can

I found a video that was SO funny, I thought all six of my followers would get a kick out of it. It was done by comedian, Tim Hawkins, and it is called The Government Can. It is sad, but true--and funny all at the same time! (Scroll down to "Feature Video")

Have you heard of the 9/12 project? Me neither. It's an interesting website. My opinion is still out on it though. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Emergency Preparedness

September is Emergency Preparedness month. My employer offered a presentation on 72 hour kits and food storage. It was very interesting. These gals have a web site where you can get lots of information.


As I was surfing around trying to get ideas for things I might want to include in my kits I found this video. It was VERY informational and quite enlightening. I HIGHLY recommend that you view it even if you don't plan on putting together and 72 hour kit anytime soon. It has some tips you WON'T want to miss.
