TIP OF THE MONTH
Time to clean out the garage…
Pull the cars out into the driveway…
Sweep (or use your leaf blower) to clear the floor of all the winter sand and salt.
Now that the floor is clear and clean, start sorting your “Stuff”…
Put the PICNIC / BEACH / PARTY “Stuff” in one corner…
The HOLIDAY DECORATIONS in another corner…
The WINTER EQUIPMENT on the back wall…
The GARDEN TOOLS on the other wall…
And the kids toys on the other wall…
Now you can bring the cars back into their bays and not have to worry about running anything over!!!!
Enjoy your Spring

Tip of the Month (March 2012)
Now is the time to “Spring Clean” your closets.
With the temperatures going into the upper 70’s this weekend it is a great time to
get rid of some clothes as you put them away for the summer.
Go through everything “OBJECTIVELY”.
And if you did not wear that wool sweater, those corduroy pants, or those multi colored mittens this winter… consider donating them.
And now as you start hanging up those spring / summer items… do the same thing.
Did you ever wear that orange, flowered t-shirt that didn’t quite look the same on you as it did on that mannequin????
And once you have donated your clothes, you will feel great that someone else can now enjoy your things.
And you will now have room for more clothes.
Have fun shopping!!!
Enjoy your spring!!
