It is officially Spring in the United States. Our friends in the Southern Hemisphere are raking leaves as Fall arrives, but here it is all about rebirth and renewal and ending our long winter hibernation.
Spring means…..are you ready….spring cleaning! If you are living a simple life then spring gives us an opportunity to inventory what we have and get rid of what we don’t need. Remember the frugal mantra need vs want? This is the time of year when we can turn that mantra into reality.
We have already begun around our house. Bev cleaned out the fridge last weekend and I organized the storage shed and piled up some stuff that needs to go to Goodwill. In another week or so we will tackle the remaining rooms of the house, leaving only Bev’s daughter’s room because quite frankly we are both afraid to go in there.
What say you? Need vs want…..take the challenge and start spring cleaning this week. Get rid of your junk or things you haven’t used in ages, and de-clutter your way to happiness.
Speaking of Spring….Janine shares some great memories about learning to ride a bike here on here blog.
