Things to do before the year is out


Not that you need more to-dos for your ever growing end-of-year-list, but our friends at The Frisky have some ideas on how to spend the last 31 days of the year...

True cleaning out the closets and donating any old or used clothing to charity is my to do list.


Cleaning out closets, cabinets and drawers is a definite yes! Oh! and under the chrisper in the fridge.:-)

That list was 50/50 for me. I'm all for donating old clothes, flossing, trying a new recipe, etc. But I'll skip getting into "Lost," "Twilight," or "Nip/Tuck."


Donating old coats and trying new recipes ARE on my list actually! I keep meaning to remember the former before I move!
