(Deep Cleaning) Window Washing


windowsOur days of warm weather are numbered now, making it a good time to think about tackling some of those last seasonal outdoor chores. The upcoming weekend might be a good opportunity to do just that!

Washing the windows is a warm-weather chore that the whole family can take part in. And don’t spend a lot of money on cleaning products. A hose, a few towels and microfiber cloths, or even just newspaper and some water in a spray bottle is all you need to get the job done.

On the cold winter days when you are housebound tucked into your cozy home, you will have a whole new appreciation for your clean windows.

(Organization) Instant Closet Makeover


There are two cheap and easy steps that you can take to give your closet an instant makeover.

1. Streamline your hangers. You don’t have to spend a fortune on wood hangers to get a professional look. Simply changing out your hangers to be all one style and color, even if they are just wire hangers, will immediately give your closet an organized look. If you can’t afford to buy new hangers, even arranging the hangers by style or color will create a similar effect.

2. Sort your clothes by color. You can take this a step further by dividing your clothes into groups by type of clothing (i.e. winter, summer, dress, etc.), then sort into the color pattern for each group.

Your closet will look instantly more organized, it will be easier to find items, and the clothes that you do have will suddenly take on a new appeal. Try it. You won’t be disappointed.
