Cheapo ways to spruce up your home

The Home Show is on this weekend! They say 54% of home owners in Prince George plan to spend at least $2,000 dollars to spruce up their home this summer.

But you don’t have to spend that much – here are a few cheapo things you can do to spruce up your home.

#5. Stop using the word spruce – unless your house is red and the needles are all falling off.

#4. Aluminum foil is for baking potatoes, not a window dressing.

#3. Use clear packing tape instead of duct tape for upholstery repairs.

#2. Any bathroom fixtures that are not in working order should be removed from the front yard.

#1. If you’re looking for something to fill those drive-way potholes with, consider the six-months worth of puppy nuggets you’ve got in your back yard!

Top five suggested themes for the #PrinceGeorge city-wide clean-up

The city-wide clean up is on Sunday. They were looking for suggestions for a theme for this year’s clean-up, but they didn’t use any of my suggestions (I wonder why).

Mike’s top five not-used theme suggestions for this year’s clean-up.

#5. Let someone else do it.

#4. It’ll probably just blow away.

#3. Hey, look at all these Canuck car flags!

#2. It’s probably someones job to pick that up and I certainly wouldn’t want to be responsible for someone losing their job because there’s nothing for them to pick up.

#1. Don’t touch that, you don’t know where it’s been!

Top five things I enjoy about Spring Cleaning

Mike’s top five things I enjoy about Spring Cleaning.

#5. After a long day of spring cleaning, there’s nothing quite like spring BBQ ribs and a refreshing spring beer while watching spring Hockey Night in Canada.

#4. Putting all the snow shovels away. (Though not so far away that you can’t get to them if you need them without climbing over the big plastic pool stuck in the back of the shed.)

#3. Using all the frozen poops in the back yard to build one of those Lincoln log homes.

#2. Finally finding the extension cord I needed back in November when I was hanging the Christmas lights.

#1. Finding bonus jelly beans between the couch cushions!
