Cleaning Out the Clutter-Or Should I Keep It
We clean our homes day after day and week after week, always looking for ways to cut down time and save money. I bet you never thought about cleaning out the clutter, that is, bogging you down!
We waste so much time and energy moving the cute little decorations, that we have in our homes, from room to room and place to place. We spend countless hours going through papers in our filing cabinets, that should have been thrown out months ago and we are constantly looking for things in drawers, that are filled with everything, except the things that we need.
I know, I did this myself for a lot of years. I got so sick and tired of 'junk' lying around, and I would clean it and get rid of it, just to find more of it the next time I opened the drawer. I never thought about the fact that a lot of the things I didn't really 'want' to get rid of, because I used them, once in a while, but I didn't need them in places that I used all of the time. I could have organized everything, put them into labeled containers and had them on a shelf or in a cupboard out of the way, but handy if I did need them.
This is, the type of clutter, that I am talking about. Clutter that is 'needed' clutter! How much 'needed' clutter could you organize today and how much extra room would it give you?

Fun Things To Do
- Fishing Lake Michigan
Whether it is by boat or off the pier, there is nothing like getting that first Coho or King.
- Grandchildren are fun
Making memories for your grandchildren of all of the fun times they had with grandma and grandpa is one of the best memories you will make for yourself too.
A tent, a firepit and sitting in the woods is a campers dream. We spend a lot of time camping in Northern Wisconsin and I have tons of camping recipes to share.
- American Idol
I am hooked on this show, nothing interrupts me when this is on. By the time they get to Hollywood, I already have the top ten picked out.
- Last Comic Standing
I love to see how these people, take the judges advice and change their tactics to become great comics, instead of just a comic.
Now really, isn't he the kind of doctor you want on your side? He always has a reason for his actions, he looks until he finds the cure and he has flaws just like the rest of us.
- Any home make over show
I get some of my best ideas off of these shows and I also find things that I wouldn't dream of doing to someone elses home. I will admit, there are times that I wish they would call me and ask for my help!
