The spectacular Road To Hana trip with tips – day 1

read

So… I plan a quiet trip to Maui, and thinking it will be a little too quiet, include a new-to-me romp over to Lana’i for a new adventure. That part’s coming soon. It’s a GOOD ONE. However, what actually transpired once I got here was so vastly different, I would have only labeled it dream material. My […]

Why cleaning in small increments wins this race.

We recently had a little mini heat wave in our area… and boy, did this Canadian made out of wax not manage so well! Yesterday I hibernated inside our little travel trailer parked beside the house. Until I got chilly. Then I went out and started all over again. I’ll admit though, evening bike rides during hot […]

Empty shelves, corners and trunks. Plus.

So, we’re right in the middle of summer… and guess what I’m doing. And it has nothing to do with gardening. Which I should be doing too btw… It has everything to do with clearing out stuff. I am in the middle of a massive PURGE. But beyond. Talk about the wrong time of year!  […]

Reorganizing the junk stash

read

I’ve started a few new good habits lately. One is walking every evening. I put the bike riding away for a spell because I wanted to see if walking would offer a few more health benefits. So far I do feel stronger, and have a little more spring in my step! Yay me! I think […]

A new stance on cleaning… one new thing.

read

Here comes the issue though… a focus generally takes a whole lot longer than anticipated. Suddenly, your entire space […]

The freedom of relinquishing, while purging a past life

read

In my ongoing quest to clean up this place, (which I’m now convinced will really NEEEEVER be over… how DO you do it, clean people?!) I gave myself a mantra. I’m going to get rid or sell something once a week. For me, getting rid of something for good is harder than gutting a room, then […]

Easy closet kit revamp in teen’s bedroom

read

This little closet project has been on the back burner for years. YEARS. In this day and age, the one bar / one shelf closet system ought to be banned. But, this is what we got when we purchased the house 10 years ago, and it was time to finally gut this thing, to get the most […]

Gifting myself with new cutlery and a clean drawer

read

Welcome to my first official Crap to Clean before Spring post. But I won’t lie. I had instant regret when I posted last Sunday that I was going to clean something each week, then post it Sunday night. BLECK. How in BLAZES could I give myself such a death sentence?! This is not creative! It’s… UGLY. So I […]
