Spring always signals spring cleaning for me. It’s a time to switch out the winter clothes for warmer weather ones. In the process, weeding things out. Giving them away, making rags, or on occasion preparing for a yard sale.
I’m starting a series of Spring Cleaning posts. Hopefully they will inspire and help you with your spring cleaning. Of course they will have a green slant. As I move through areas or rooms of the house I will:
- Give ideas on how to get rid of items you don’t need/want anymore – without throwing them in the trash.
- Suggest green cleaners to use
- Give tips on how to prepare yourself or room for going greener
The first one may seem like an odd first choice, but it really needed to get done here! Spring Cleaning: Clean Out Your Refrigerator and Pantry. Ok, so I do this one more than once a year, but it’s been a while. Plus with the recent developments in the Westford School Lunch Program, I NEEDED to do this now.
Stay tuned later in the day for my tips on how to do this with an eye on the "Green".
Do you have specific areas you'd like to see tackled or want to know how to get rid of particular items? Let me know!
