tip of the day.

This little guy is a 2 dollar magic wand.

Spring cleaning is in full force even though I think its technically summer, but you get the just.
So I am once again purging unloved household items.
I want to be surrounded only by things that bring my joy.
And that means finally bringing up goodies found and then left in the garage for later use.
Jamie, I know you have SEEN this mess.

I did run into a problem though and for all of you thrifters, these is a mystery solved.
Doesn't it bug you when the sifters/pricemarkers at the thrift store mark your item with a Sharpie and then it runs on you "find"?
errrr, this bugs me.
Not any more though.

As long as it's run on a slick surface, all you have to do is rub a dry erase marker over the area and WA LA.
the sharpie comes right off.

Yup. That is an old pre-school teacher trick too. We used to change the titles of toy bins all the time!!!

um, mess? what mess? I don't remember seeing a mess anywhere at your house :)

so what are you purging? is there anything that might find a place in my house?? and if there's any scrappies involved, I'm sure my mom would be willing to take it off your hands.

so when is our next visit/adventure? i miss you!
