#58: At this time of year, we’re in the lightest clothes possible, but what about lightening up our homes? I’ve changed my bedcovers twice since Winter: a lighter quilt for Spring and now a coverlet for Summer. A more formal homekeeper than I might also roll up the area rugs and change the draperies, but that’s going a little too far for me. I’ll settle for the fresh bedding and having the curtains cleaned!
#59 How about some summer freebies to lighten the pull on our wallets? The 11th of July (7/11) is Free Slurpie Day at 7-11 stores and June 3rd was Free Donut Day for 2011 at Dunkin’ Donuts and Krispy Kreme. Several companies bring out new treats during the Summer, and they’re often free, too. Dunkin’ Donuts ran coupons for free Frozen Iced Tea this year. What will they think of next??
