On the table, I had placed condiments like Ranch dressing, Italian dressing, mayonnaise, etc. My sister-in-law poured on the Ranch, took a bite and spit it out.

How do you keep an organized purse? Or do you??? I never used to keep mine organized and then one year for Christmas, probably about 7 years now, I received an awesome, but huge, Coach bag from my husband’s best friend.

Filing Cabinet Clean Out   It's that time time of year to do our taxes, but before I do there are other things that need to be done first like cleaning and purging my filing cabinet, updating my ICE list and taking the time to call around to all of the companies I do business with to check for lower rates or better deals.
