For All that Ails You...

I woke up this morning, like I do most weekday mornings, to the
news.  And as I half-listened through daunting reports of the ever-downward-sloping economy, I thought, "what can I do about it?  I know!  I'll clean some more!"

Now I know that this is an unorthodox approach.  In fact, it seems downright ludicrous.  How can spring cleaning possibly cure all that ails us in these times?  To make such an assertion is akin to burying your head in the sand (or into the far-reaches of your cabinets where those little sweet and sour sauce packets have congealed into a sticky and stubborn mess), and what modern-day woman would want all that sand in her hair?

It's a fair question.  Nevertheless, I have an uncanny knack for intellectualizing even the simplest of chores (if for nothing else than to make me feel better), and so it is with spring cleaning.  So for the next week or so I will be explaining how spring cleaning can, in fact, bring some much needed benefit into our lives during these "difficult times" (as everyone is so fond of saying these days).  Starting with the health and wellness benefits.

So stick around to hear how spring cleaning can improve your finances, sharpen your mind, invigorate your health, and positively impact the environment.  And all for less than dollars a day!  (Do I sound like an infomercial yet?)

And no--the record, I don't think that cleaning can cure All that ails us.  And yes--I am being a little facetious about the whole thing.  But keep reading--I might even surprise myself by exploring the depths of what is essentially mopping and scrubbing!
