Go through your closet. Get rid of those unwanted or unused clothes, or even makeup, dishes, you name it. Usually Spring cleaning is around March, but I start every January now. How about a new recipe?. I'm not a good cook, but I am up for trying new recipes and this week is the perfect time as it's my flex week. Taking a day off or two between Christmas and the New Year.

You may have a picture that's been sitting in the corner of a room, why not hang it up. Without any help even better, it can brighten up a room. Returning those Christmas presents is a great idea as well. Do you ever re gift a gift? I have, but never in the same Family.

One thing I've already started is cleaning out the junk food in the refrigerator, pantry, even off the kitchen counters. Everywhere I look there's cookies, See's Candy, popcorn, you name it. The cleaner eating can't come soon enough in my house. I know it's time to start thinking about those New Year's resolutions too. So how about a Journal of the good things of 2022, and the goals for 2023. However you spend this last week of 2022, I hope it's full of great memories from this past year.
