“For want of a nail the shoe was lost. For want of a shoe the horse was lost. For want of a horse the rider was lost. For want of a rider the message was lost.”

To get started–
Step 1 – Go to the pantry where the egg cartons, step stools, Walmart bags, food trays, measuring devices, broken appliances, and Pringle Cans are tossed.
Step 2 – Uck-Oh! I can’t start today because I have run out of Walmart bags! What is the chance of that? First ever since I was married in 1953. Must be in the stars for me not to clean this spring.
“…for want of a bag, the spring clean up is lost…”
