Weekend Fun

15 Apr

Hey all!

It’s been a pretty quiet weekend here so far…I’ve been doing a LOT of spring cleaning in my apartment, and I’ve managed to clear out a lot of junk from my closets, dressers, and kitchen drawers. Having extra storage space is an important part of being prepared, because food and water take up a ton of space! I have a waste-not-want-not mindset, which is great 95% of the time – I repurpose my old items and save a lot of money – however, it does make it hard for me to decide when to give up and throw things away. I usually try to donate most items that I no longer need, but sometimes I just have to bite the bullet and throw the useless stuff in the trash.

I ran a 10K this morning, and I’m feeling a little sleepy and sore. Do any of you run (or do other exercise) in order to be prepared for emergencies? I started jogging just for fun, but now I like knowing that I could run pretty far if my life depended on it. Anyway, I’m going to leave you with some links and then go put more ice on my knees!

  • Great blog about organizing in general…keep those spaces clean!
  • Do you have old, expired coupons laying around? Did you know they can be donated to our troops? Learn more here.
  • For that matter, here are some ideas about where to donate all sorts of no-longer-needed items.
  • Just discovered this blog today – I’M IN LOVE. Lots of fun DIY projects that are apartment, budget, and environmentally friendly.

That’s all for now! Enjoy the rest of your day!

What are you up to this weekend?
