Can you remove an old oil stain from clothing?

Has this happened to you? You go to take your clothes out of the dryer and notice an oil spot, or rather streaks?

I don’t’ know what happened, but when I put my clothes in the dryer, they sometimes come out with stains. Now, I KNOW they are not salad dressing stains because one of the tops was brand new! I just wanted to get rid of the wrinkles. So, I put it in the dryer ALONE, but when the top came back out, it had the steaks of oil all over it. I was upset because I just bought it and I couldn’t understand how this happened.

Goal #7 Declutter – purging…starting with my closets

February is purging month, OK maybe March too because I have soooo much stuff.  The reason I started this goal was because of the book I’m reading called “The Happiness Project” by Grethchen Rubin. If you haven’t read it, you really need to get it. She’s got some great advice for each month. She talks about each project using herself and her family as the examples. I am loving it. In her book, January is the energy boosting month and one of the ways to do that is to declutter your space. If you want to buy it for cheaper, go to Amazon.ca and buy it used. After all, it’s not something you’re going to treasure forever. So, save your money and get it used.

Do you know what purging means?  For some, it may mean puking up what you just ate, but that’s not what I am talking about. I’m referring to getting rid of things you either no longer use, or are holding on to because it might come back, or because you spent money on it. That’s totally me! Holding on to it because I paid money, but the problem with that is it’s taking up space and making me angry because it’s just sitting there.

Where can you buy prescription glasses for $33?

My glasses were starting to fall apart because I manage to hit my face somehow. I know when I’m tired I smack into doors, but not always. And, they are over a year old, so it’s time to get a new pair.

I was talking with a few wonderful ladies after volleyball about glasses and they were mentioning how much theirs cost. Sandra said she had progressives and they cost I think she said $300 just for 1 pair of glasses. Tula said something like she gets 2 pairs for $300, and then I said I just ordered 2 pairs for $33, and that includes shipping and anti-reflective coating. They were shocked, so was I  when I found this place. I didn’t believe I would get a good stylish pair of glasses for anything less $100, but I did. In fact, I have bought over 10 pairs from them.

The place I buy from is Zenni Optical. They have frames that are $6.95!!! Just look at the new purple ones I bought for $6.95.

Oh and the fun part about them is I get to customize what I want written on the inside of the arm. I wrote in this pair “You go girl!” Talk about designing my own stile. Did I mention they also come with a case and a clothe.

If you’re looking to save money on glasses, this is the place to do it.  I love my glasses and have never been happier with the service too. They arrive in less then 2 weeks as promised.

Goal #7 – De-clutter my house – week 1

If you could only see my house right now. It’s a mess! I have clothes sitting on the floor, laundry piled up, dishes that need to get done, and there are files all over my desk, receipts everywhere. I have a Service Ontario bill to pay for my sticker for the car, which I’ve been trying to do all day, but for some reason I can’t get through the website. I think it might be because of Mozilla. Most government departments use Internet Explorer when they create they sites and they don’t test it with other search engines. My goal this year BEFORE August as advised by my friend and Intuitive Numerologist Laura Young said that I need to de-clutter everything in my life from my space, clothes, and relationships. She never mentioned anything about Ma Man…so I think I’ll keep him.lol

OK, so Goal #7 is to de-clutter my house, but that’s a big order. I have sooo MANY things to do. In order for me to not freak out, I am going to start with one pile at at a time, but before I do that I need to write down which rooms I need to work on and what do I need to do.

I tried to add the image, but it wouldn’t work, so I have attached a link to it here.

If you want to learn more about what Laura does, she sends out a monthly newsletter with really great information to help you move forward. If you want to be added to her email, simply email her at Laura Young lbaird@istar.ca. Or if you ready for a reading, email her and if you wouldn’t mind letting her know that you heard about her from me, that would be great. Thanks.

I’m bored! Where do I look to see what’s going on in the city?

I’m trying to find fun things to do in Ottawa that are not too pricey and are fun. I like to look for deals or coupons for dates, but when I do a search on Google, they come up with thousands of pages. Then, you have to go to each one because there isn’t one site that contains everything. I wish there was a site that contained ALL the deals and maybe it could be a mobile app? Hint hint for those that like to create apps. I would use this app for sure…if someone created it.bored

I remember there was a website for online coupons that compiled all the deals online into one location.  I can’t remember what it’s called. If you know of it, please share.

I like to try different things to learn, but with so many places to look, I forget where I found the deal or what the place was called. Then I have to go and start my search all over, until now. I am going to use this page to continuously update where I find things. No more trying to find things all over. It will be one click away.

Here you go. Hope it helps you as well.
