My cupboards were cleaned out earlier this yr and have stayed that way - GO ME!

I used this 15 mins to clean out the fridge and find out what I need to freeze, buy and eat up before the expiration date. That's all it took - 15 mins! I'd been dreading that task.

Thursday - Today we are going to venture in to the pantry! If you do not have a pantry, then choose one cabinet in your kitchen to straighten. Also, dump empty boxes and containers.

Have fun and this can count as a 27 fling boogie!

Tuesday - Today your mission is to clean out under your sink! All the almost empty containers, the old nasty sponges,the grocery bags, the cleaners that you don't use,the empty jars,the clutter that just seems to pile up under the sink!

Grab a trash bag and start flinging! Recycle what you can!

I had ants earlier in the season. I washed my counters with vinegar or Windex and they went away. (Maybe they just decided to move back outside because there was nothing on the counters to eat.)???

I haven't tried this but apparently if ants eat cream of wheat - it expands in their stomachs and they explode. Kind of a disgusting way to go...

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.

Monday - Scrub down your counter tops. You will need to get some hot soapy water and wipe down the counters from front to back and side to side. Yes, you have to move the stuff on the counters to do this.:)
