Well, my birthday is today. I didn’t buy myself a new iPod or take a vacation. And much to the dismay of everyone I know, I actually came to work today. I didn’t buy myself anything glamourus. I did, however, buy myself an awesome new vacuum and a Mr. Clean Magic Reach device. I know, you’re thinking, “are you kidding me?” No, my friends, I am not.
I haven’t used the vacuum yet, but on Sunday morning, I broke out the Magic Reach, put one of scrubbing pads on it – and wow! Who knew scrubbing a tub could be so easy? I didn’t even really have to scrub and in less than two minutes my tub and shower walls were shining as if they were brand new.
I’m a big believer in keeping things simple. Why take ten steps to do something that can be done in five? I admit, I bought this product on an impulse, but I figured it would work well – I’ve been a huge fan of the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for years now. But as I cleaned my tub with less effort than I ever have before, it made me wish I had made the impulse purchase months before.
This year I am doing to do my best to simplify as many routine processes in my life as possible. It is something we can all do. Our lives don’t need to be incredibly complicated. I know I don’t want my life to be complicated. As silly as it sounds, the Magic Reach was the first step in what I hope will a year that I can look back on and say, “that was the year my life became incredibly simple, less stressful, and much happier!”
