    Friday Round Up-Organizing and Decluttering

      Happy Friday to you. The weather took a downward turn and it looks like winter is back. I guess last week’s 60 degree temperature spoiled me and I have to face up to reality. Roll on spring and summer.   Speaking of which… Getting Ready for Canning Season I’ve been on a decluttering and organizing binge. One of the areas in the basement that was in most disarray was the section where I keep all my canning jars and equipment.

    The Blog-Hobbies Cost Less at the Dollar Store

    Earlier today I was driving by the new dollar store and thought I’d check it out. I’m glad I did. I discovered they had lots of craft items that I can use for one of my new hobbies.
