*** I was so proud of writing this even after our crazy wedding weekend…..so excited that I forgot to post it and only saved it as a draft! Better late than never!!
Hello friends! Thank you for being so patient with me! I know I did not post last week, but I GOT MARRIED! We were a little busy last week. I do apologize . But, we are back in business and with spring just around the corner, it is time to get ready for some SERIOUS Spring cleaning!

Week 9 (technically 10)
Spring is in the air! While I have no doubt us Chicagoans are in for another snowstorm, I am going to start prepping for spring. This week, I want you to do the same. While it may too early to bust out the flip-flops and shorts, we could start getting some things done. I am hoping that we can pack away our heaviest coats, so get them ready this week for the dry cleaners. These coats have been through a lot this winter, so don’t pack them away with all the salt, slush, and snow crusted on them. While you are taking your heaviest winter coats to the cleaners, also take out your spring coats to the cleaners. This way, when the weather does warm up, you will have your coats cleaned, pressed, and ready to go! As your go through your winter and spring coats, take some time to think about donating your gently used coats to an organization such as…..
Good Will: http://www.goodwill.org/
The Salvation Army: http://www.salvationarmyusa.org/usn/www_usn_2.nsf
Your Local Homeless Shelter: Illinois homeless shelters — http://www.homelessshelterdirectory.org/illinois.html
If you have dress coats that do not fit or your do not wear, think about donating them to an organization that helps men and women get jobs.
Dress for Success: http://www.dressforsuccess.org/
Please think about donating to these organizations or any organization in your area as your clean out your coat clutter!
