The term "spring cleaning" has always baffled me. At this point, I've been cleaning all winter. Enough already. Time to get outside and play when spring finally strikes. Done with cleaning. Cleaning is a fall job so that I can purge all the junk I don't want to store all winter. Because storage space is prime. So I like to re-evaluate what I've got and toss what's no longer needed before winter comes. Especially with all the new stuff that arrives around Christmas. After all, you only have so much room in your basement, garage, shed and attic (if you even have all of those storage options). It's time to free yourself of the junk that you don't even know you have. Here's the essential checklist of what you should consider purging before the snow flies to save you space, time, energy and frustration. And if you ended up buying a second pair of hedge clippers because you couldn't locate yours when the time came to do the job then you know exactly what I mean. Too annoying!
If there is one technological concept that will undergo huge improvement during the next three years, it is battery power. While there have already been notable innovations in this market over the course of the last 18 months, we will soon see concepts such as wireless and Wi-Fi charging begin to impact the consumer electronics market. We will also see the current proposition of cordless power enjoy a huge improvement between now and 2018, with a growing percentage of the consumer electronics industry embracing lithium-ion battery technology. As this is refined, we will see larger cordless products become increasingly reliable and powerful.
It was love at first sight with my Scrub Daddy. This product works. I used it to clean my stove top. Now, we kind of just smile at each other in that goofy sort of way. So buy yourself, and all the people you love a Scrub Daddy this Valentine's Day. It says right on the box "you'll love me" and they're right! And here are seven more gifts the gardener is rooting for.
It got to to the point where I was just frustrated and becoming increasingly unreasonable.
Where do you store all your stuff? Especially if you live in an apartment, I mean, where does it all go?
The birds are chirping. Time to investigate the garden.
Tom and I trudge outside. Pretty bleak. Dismal. Depressing. Like that first glimpse of the back of my legs after a long winter in Buffalo.
And I dig out my garden journal.
Don’t ever settle. Keep looking. The one you’re looking for is out there.
That’s right. We’re talking shovels.
Tools. What do you find most helpful to have on hand in the garden? That’s what I wanna know.
Mine? Paint stirring sticks. Love them. I use them to label the end of my rows. Maybe they don’t look all that cute but boy; do I appreciate them when the seeds start sprouting.
