Does This Object Spark Joy?

Pretreat stains with (my personal favorite) Shout Advanced Stain Lifting Foam.  Place the sweater in the water and swish it...

Pack Like a Pro…

 Packing for a trip is challenging. You don’t want to take too much or leave something behind that is essential. I love to travel and thought it would be fun to share some of my packing tips.

The plastic bags are for things to toss and for things to donate. Return/recycle the metal hangers to your dry cleaners.
