Happy Labor Day! What did you do today? We just did the usual house stuff – no barbecues or anything like that…sort of a ho hum day…. *sigh* It’s still ridiculously hot here and I really can’t wait for the cooler days of autumn to start working outside again – I don’t like to sweat and in this weather any sort of outdoor activity leaves you sweaty so I’m boycotting it as much as a I can.

I hope you’ll join me along with 7 other AMAZING bloggers sharing tips and our own journeys.  The series will be every Sunday for the next few weeks – next week we tackle clothes – I managed to get rid of 14 bags so far 😉
