Blog: Take The Stress Out Of Housecleaning
Trick or Treat- Treat Yourself to a Home Redecorating for $0

Sounds almost too good to be true doesn't it? However, it is so simple you will wonder why you didn't think of it yourself!

We all have things in our homes that have been is the same place for years. It is a place that the item seems to look the best (or so we think). How many times have you walked passed that same item and never really noticed it?
What about all of those things that you have in boxes and bags, that are stuck in the attic and basement? You never use them, you know they are there and you don't know why you are still hanging on to them.
1.  Get them out and exchange them for a piece that you are now using but NOT noticing.
2.  Take items and put them in different rooms.
3.  Think out-of-the-box and use sporting equipment from the summer that gets shoved in
      boxes for decorating a teenagers room, the den or rec room.
4.  Move a bookcase to the dining room and display your cook books
5. Take those pretty plates that are in the cupboard and add them to the wall in the kitchen
6. Look in a room and decide all of the things in there that you don't need and change those
    items to other rooms or exchange them for things that are now in boxes
7. Take the old pictures out of picture frames and add your summer vacation photos
8. Put a mirror in the picture frame and add it to the table in the foyer or entrance way. Maybe
    hang it on the wall near the back door for a last minute hair check on the way out.
9. Look up and down a wall and see what space that you can use that is empty now. Possibly
    hang a shelf about 14 inches from the ceiling for books, breakable heirlooms etc.
10.  Use towels to make covers for old bed pillows and put them on the floor for kids and
The only thing that holds us back is our imagination. So, go crazy and see how many ideas you can come up with for 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!
