Spring Cleaning:

After a mild Wisconsin winter and a brutal Spring, we are finally seeing warmer weather and green grass!! May has become one of my favorite months because I love to clean and rid our house of the winter yuck and plan for the fun months of summer.

If you are like me, I do not have hours and hours to dedicate to cleaning my house or spring cleaning, so I have found a system that allows me to do a little each day over a week's time. And actually, my family and I do many of these things on a regular basis so that our house never gets out of control!

To get started...

1. Make a list: I am a list maker, a trait I inherited from my Dad. I love lists and crossing off the items when I get them done. I use a notebook system... One notebook for our Life To Do, one for our Lake Life business and one for my skincare business.

  • Start by listing each room of your house.
  • Then on the bottom, write these things...
    • shampoo carpet, wash rugs
    • organize and purge closets and drawers
    • wash bedding and curtains
    • restock 
    • yardwork
    • wash windows
  • Then clean one room at a time or complete one item at a time...
  • I like to clean all of our closets first. Then clean the rooms and wash bedding. As I am cleaning, I make a list of all of the products that I need to get at Costco or Target to restock. Then we wash the rugs and shampoo carpets at the very end.
  • When the weather is best, I do all of the yard work, then wash windows.
  • In the kitchen, I also clean all of our appliances and pantry. In the laundry room, we run bleach through the washer and clean out the dryer vent.
  • Our garage is considered a room and organized the same way.

2. Use natural cleaners. I do not make my own cleaners, but have completely switched to natural, green, earth-friendly products. Once we started making soy candles, I began to research the health concerns behind paraffin candles, air freshener plug ins and all of the cleaning products that I was using. Just for fun... if you burn candles that are not soy, go check out your furnace filter. It is pretty scary. We now use ion air cleaners and our house smells cleaner and fresher than ever before. I never used to believe in them, but my allergies are definitely better with it!!

3. Throughout the year, teach you and your family to organize and purge regularly. Once every few months, my kids clean their closets as they are putting away laundry. I clean out my fridge once a month. You seriously will feel so much better with a clean, organized fridge! 

4. Find an organization system that works for you and your family. I have an Erin Condren planner that I just love. It is hard cover so it stands up in my purse and bag and keeps our lives running smoothly. We also have a master calendar in our mud room with all of our activities.


5. Use a printable grocery list and meal planner to keep your family well fed and happy every day. See links on our website for Free Printables!

I believe that a clean, organized house makes our lives run happier, smoother and less stressed. We are busy so we do not have a lot of time to commit to cleaning our house, and we sure aren't going to miss out on fun things to clean!! But, incorporating these small things regularly eliminates Spring Cleaning to be a big deal.

6. We own a second home on the lake. While I do the exact same things for cleaning and stocking our house, there is a bit more outside work that needs to be done. See my Spring Cleaning checklist on our website for a Free Printable!

Do you have other ideas to share? Tips and tricks for other busy people? Please share.

xoxo, Amy

This of course ended when Lune and Condor Groves came into
flower and other intentions vanished when Cocker was
forced to sell 1.5 acres out of the 5.5 acres he had bought off Whitegate Farm.

That was to extend St. John's housing on to the intended Park Road and Balmer Grove,
and prevented Cookson's plan for Salisbury Road to run its full length,
terminating it at Westmorland Avenue..

your new Koi, they should remain under total isolation. This means that you should not allow anything
to come into contact with the quarantined Koi, especially items
that also come into contact with your current population. Separate tools,
food, and water should be used, and never under any circumstances,
should the tools used for your quarantined fish leave the area in which they are used.

treated with the RICE method, which is an acronym that
stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation. This familiar mnemonic
is an effective treatment for most soft tissue injuries.

either a well, a river or a reservoir (normally a
local lake). The water is treated in a water treatment plant to remove

A Monmouth University Iowa Poll in late October found that 19% of Republican voters were completely set on their
choice of candidate. Monmouth found a similar story in South Carolina this month, where 17%
of likely primary voters in that early state were settled on their
pick. Another 39% said they had a strong preference but
were willing to look at other candidates..

Speaking of his childhood, Cavendish said, "I was always riding a bike, getting dropped in little races.

But here a slightly different situation for your consideration. Say that you tasked
with pairing people in hotel rooms. These are individuals who arrive from
all over the country, will be there for 2 3 weeks, and the only gender related information you have is their response to whatever
question(s) you ask. But when I started OMAD I did get tired/hungry very easily all day
for the first few days. I think that's normal.
I'm actually hungry right now at work but it's not the "low blood sugar" type of hunger.

and stored by the body. Approximately 40% of women with PCOS have a high risk of type 2 diabetes.

a sheet of paper inside the item so the glue won't soak
through to the other side of the garment. Once you make a final decision, lightly trace
the letters onto the item with the chalk. Place dots of glue
on the item with the toothpick, doing just three or four at one time.

If you work out a lot it mean wearing them most days so at that point it much smarter

beach dresses Sure I know that it easy to say
"Scientist are spending tax dollars on silly junk like artificial cells! That money would be better spent on XX!" But as it is right now, scientific agencies like the NSF are woefully underfunded, and competition for grants is downright brutal.
They see thousands of technically solid and well articulated grant proposals that they cannot fund simply because the money is not there.

They just make an easy target for sound bites because when you do not explain the root cause for the research it can often sound ridiculous..
