Belly Babbles Spring Challenge- Week Four

Belly Babbles

We're heading into the fourth and final week of the Spring Challenge, and the focus this week is "Other Areas". Vague, much?

I intentionally left this week open-ended because I figure everyone is going to have different areas they want to focus on to wrap up their Spring cleaning. So for this week, think about what other rooms or areas could use some serious cleaning. And don't forget your Special Project  :-).

This week, I am going to focus on:

* Workout room (the only room in the basement not dedicated to beer brewing)
* Cars
* Porches
* Outside of house
* Miscellaneous house items
* Landscaping
