10 Items to Remove from Your Fridge

I'm guilty.  I like to put random items in the fridge.  For years, I put ground coffee in the fridge.  And, then of course there was my tray of nail polish.  And those batteries.  I've changed my ways though not only because these items were taking up precious space in my fridge, but also because they didn't need to be in the fridge.  Here's 10 items you can take out right now...
  1. BATTERIES - extreme temps can lessen their performance...find a room-temperature place for your batteries.  And, while you're at it, find an organizer to put your batteries in...it doesn't have to be fancy. I found this one at Joann's...it's actually for organizing embroidery floss.  I also store a small Philips screwdriver with my batteries just in case the battery compartment has a screw on it.
  2. BREAD - the fridge actually dries the bread out...keep about 4 days worth of bread out at room temperature and freeze the rest. (more…)

First Things First

Small sampling of my closet. Only wearing 1/3 of these tops everyday...the ones I can button without the peek-a-boo effect.
There are three women shacking up in my closet: a size 12, a size 10, and a size 8.  In 2017, I vow not to buy any clothes.  I don't need new clothes; I just need to fit into the ones I have!  So, I'm going on a diet of sorts.  I've already KonMari'd my closet, but I must confess that I didn't completely abide by what KonMari said to do: I didn't discard clothing that no longer fits.  I'm making 2017 the year that I fit into one of these women again.  Oh, I will go shopping in 2017, but in my closet! Come back and read about my journey....maybe you'll join me.
