Although this year it could hardly pass for spring, believe it or not, it is SPRING! After this miserable winter, I couldn’t be happier to welcome spring. But with spring comes the infamous spring cleaning tradition – the time of year when everyone collectively decides to clean random things. I never really understood that but I can’t complain. The germaphobe and neat freak in me secretly loves it. That’s why I chose to write about it!
I recently became a contributing writer over at Honesty For Breakfast, a site that offers all kinds of articles written by contributors all over the country on topics such as entertainment, dating and sex, career and more! My recent contributions have been a series spring cleaning guides on getting rid of all that excess junk you’ve accumulated over the years. After graduating college in May, I realized just how much useless things I had in my possession. Since then I’ve become a pro at some real, cut-throat cleaning. Check out the guides:
Cut-Throat Spring Cleaning: The Closet
THE MAKEUP BAG
Cut-Throat Spring Cleaning: The Makeup Bag
Cut-Throat Spring Cleaning: Bathroom Storage
As always, let me know your thoughts! How do you spring clean?
Although I’ve shared rooms with countless girls (ahh, college) living with my boyfriend has proved to be a completely different world. Let’s face it, men and women are just DIFFERENT!
Now that I’m in my new home, I feel inclined to put up decorations! After all, small decorations and good home cooking turn a house into a home. Since fall festivities are in full swing I’ve put up what I consider cute fall decorations. But some didn’t make the cut for the guys. “Too glittery” or “too girly” or “pointless” were their responses.
Lesson Learned: Don’t ask what he thinks about decorations. Just hang them.
Also, us girls…we shed…a lot! With long dark hair, the new shedding around our bedroom is something Vince isn’t used to. According to him, my hair is everywhere, even in between his toes (whoops!) So paying more attention to hair, especially in the shower drain, is extremely important now.
Lesson Learned: Pay attention to the hair I leave behind.
How do young men even survive on the food they eat? The freezer contains frozen pizzas, loaded hot pockets, and all kinds of processed junk while the cabinets hold snacks any 10-year-old would die for: Lays chips and Cocoa Puffs cereal. Making room for my fruits and vegetables wasn’t too difficult…what has been difficult is avoiding all that junk food that taunts me every time I open those doors!
Lesson Learned: Refrain from stuffing my face with snack foods.
There are TONS more lessons to be learned, I’m sure. These are the ones that have stood out in just four days.
