    Default Quick Sunday Mini-Purge

    Hi all!

    I thought today might be a good day for a quick mini-purge.

    Grab a grocery bag, take a run through your house. Hit every room, look in and on every surface until you fill the bag.

    Once you are done, take the bag right outside to the trash.

    Today, the goal isn't to transform the house...simple do a little purge. Definitely something we could all stand to do, I'm sure!

    HaHa! Guess what? This is the 1st one I can't join , I've actually been a good girl , and have kept my surfaces clean and clutter free . Looks like I got the night off ladies...lol!

    Ho-Hum! Just what's a "girl of leisure" to do?
    Can one of you put down your grocery bag for a minute and pass me those bon-bons?


    LOL!
