Cleaning the 'Garbage' Out of Your House

Start in your computer and home office area.
Get rid of notes, old files, Recipes you have never used,
directions for things that are outdated etc.
We all think that we live in pretty clean homes. Sure, we have some disorganization and little bit of clutter, but we will deal with it eventually. How many of you have really cleaned out the 'GARBAGE' from your house?
I went on a cleaning spree one day, just looking for all of the junk in drawers that I was constantly throwing from one drawer to the next. I decided tha I would take a few minutes, grab a paper grocery bad and get rid of it. Three 'large size' plastic bags later, I was finished.
It was amazing the amount of --just plain garbage--that I found lying around the house.
A piece of paper or a note here, a broken pencil or pen there and before you know it, I had a bag full, then a second bag and finally a third!LOL
Now, I don't consider myself as having a dirty house by any means, a matter of fact, people say my house is so clean you can eat off the floors!! But I sure proved all of them wrong that day.
Start in one room of the house and go through all of the doors, drawers and cupboards and start to throw out the GARBAGE. Everything that is old, outdated, broken and basically useless.
If you think you are running out of storage space, by the time you are through, you will see why. The garbage took over your home!!

Jan's Website:


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.
  • Camping
    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.

TV Shows

  • 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.
  • House
    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!
