Spring. It’s here! In fact, it has felt more like summer in Ontario over the last few days. It has been great to get outside and enjoy some warm sunshine, cool breezes and fresh air (the smog hasn’t set in yet, lol). But along with the joys of spring time comes the realization that we’ve been hibernating for the last 6 months, and ignoring many of the chores that definitely need our attention.
This is the time of year when our closets start calling our names. Time to unpack the shorts and t-shirts, and pack away our sweaters and pants. That’s not the worst part of spring cleaning to me. Perhaps it’s the brighter days but, this is the time of year that I tend to spot all those neglected areas of the house that haven’t been touched by a cloth in awhile. Light fixtures, the top of the fridge, screen doors…and don’t even get me started on windows.
While our windows still need cleaning (*sigh*), we’ve managed to get a large amount of spring chores done in the last few weeks. It feels good to be on top of these chores.
What doesn’t feel so good is the pile of receipts, papers, notes, and general household odds, ends, and crap that have accumulated in our drawers over the winter. I have been avoiding those select drawers for awhile now.
I was shopping at Chapters Indigo the other day and came upon something that reminded me of the morass of crap in my drawers – A portable organizer for Crap Receiptables. That’s right Crap Receiptables. The name of this organizer made me laugh – right out loud in the bookstore. I needed one of these. In fact…I needed the XXXL version, but sadly, I don’t believe this organizer comes in a bigger size. This organizer includes accordion pockets, tab labels, pad and pen.
So I scooped one up for myself…and another for one for you! Most of us have little odds and ends of paper that don’t have a proper home. Now you can WIN a Receiptables For Crap Portable Organizer to help you keep track of those odds and ends! Here’s how you can enter to WIN:
