Efficiency Tips for Finishing Spring Cleaning

Efficiency Tips for Finishing Spring Cleaning

Effectively finish up spring cleaning with a few of these cleaning tips.

Spring cleaning is an annual event for getting your home free of the winter doldrums and brightening up the atmosphere with a breath of fresh air for the upcoming months. To add the finishing touches to the yearly mop till you drop event, try these spring cleaning efficiency tips to get your home in tip-top condition, without wasting away the entire weekend.

  • Get a jump start on sales by clipping coupons. Put them in a easy to carry folder and keep them in your car. Whenever you go shopping, you’ll have money saving coupons with you for those cleaning supplies.
  • Put your cleaning supplies in a carrier like a shower caddy or basket with a handle. This way you can move from room to room with everything you need.
  • It’s important to keep the momentum rolling but it’s equally important to take scheduled breaks so you don’t burn yourself out. Set a timer for periodic breaks, for a snack, lunch and beverages to stay hydrated.
  • Once the cleaning day is over, reward yourself with a great meal, movie or super tasty dessert. Be sure everyone who helped gets a reward, too.

Get your home at Lincoln Trinity Bluff sparkly clean for spring and keep it that way with these tips and monthly touch ups.

How to Get a Stair Climbing Workout with Your Dog

How to Get a Stair Climbing Workout with Your Dog

Spend the day running stairs with your dog for a good healthy workout.

We all know that exercise is good for us, but staying motivated can be tricky in our busy lives. Exercise with a dog, though, and you will stay motivated a lot longer. One good exercise that builds sculpted legs and helps your dog stay in top form is the stair climber.

To perform this simple exercise, find a good set of stairs (such as the ones we have at Charles Nash Elementary less than a tenth of a mile away, or use bleachers), and keep your canine companion on a leash. Run up and down the stairs as many times as you and your pup can to increase your heart rate and get those legs working.

Change the way you hit the stairs for a variety of workouts — take them two at a time or run up them sideways. Your dog will play along and you’ll both get an amazing workout while having fun.

Try this exercise at your apartment in Fort Worth with a dog of your choice (hopefully one you’ve adopted!), and you and your pup will be fit and trim in no time at all!

Treat yourself to brunch specialties at one of these restaurants in Fort Worth.

There are a number of fine spots serving up brunch close to Trinity Bluff in downtown Fort Worth. Here are 3 brunch spots in Downtown Fort Worth that you can visit with mom for Mother’s Day!

Joe T. Garcia’s: They may not call it “brunch” but the breakfast that’s served up from 11am-3pm on weekends is brunch in most of our books. Try Joe T. Garcia’s Huevos Racheros or other Tex-Mex favorites.

Cowtown Diner: If you’re looking for brunch with a kick, then the Cowtown Diner is as good a place to check out as any other. Mom can enjoy the Eggs Benedict creation, Chili Benedict. Need I say more?
