Awesome cheapness

#145 Cleaning the Carpets.  We discovered that the dollar store “Awesome” brand works just as well as the $20 Bissell stuff.  I wanted to use a vinegar solution, but Zach hates the “everything smells like salad” effect even though I don’t think it leaves a smell.

Whoa

#117 Biggest Trash Pick Up Ever. We can usually skip a week of pick-up and still have it fit easily into the can. This was only a portion of it because we held some back to go next time so we didn’t get charged for extra (you can have up to 10 bags besides the can)

Basement

#116 The Basement is Clean! After finishing the garage, we decided to tackle the basement too. The overhead light isn’t working (from the neighbor’s blowout), so it made it more of a challenge to do it by the lamp and flashlights.

Garage

#115 We are completely moved in now. Two years later. We finally got the garage cleaned up and organized over the weekend. We had piles of trash and things to donate scattered across the lawn, and kept the kids busy “washing” the bikes (they liked playing with the water hose). We found boxes in there with the remnants of two Christmas’ ago. You couldn’t really walk through it before the big clean out. The motivation? Steve gave us his deep freeze (the white thing near the door) and the outlet doesn’t work and we need to have maintence come fix it. The neighbors blew out an outlet and it killed this outlet and one in the basement (but not the sump pump one, thank goodness).

Tomatoes

#112 Everlasting Tomatoes. A few months ago I bought about 80 cans of tomatoes at $.15 each. We still have a few left lined up neatly in the basement. (the only thing neatly in the basement. lol)

Stash

#86 My Stash. Most of the top is the sock yarn I got from Germany, and the bottom is acrylic on the left, cotton through the middle, and wool on the right.

Always keep track of your scissors

#61 While I was busy cutting hair out of the vacuum beater bar, Zora decided to grab one of the scissors I put down and give the feather duster a haircut. There were bits of feather everywhere.

  • I cannot imagine Jesus striking a child…unless, of course, the child runs into the traffic of Nazareth. After all, with those asses pulling carts and stuff, a child could get hurt!
