By Margaret Pelton Partners in Education, a program of the Green Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, is proud to announce the recipients of the 2010 Golden Apple Teachers of Distinction Awards. The Pulaski Community School District recipients are as follows: Kathleen Gerds from Pulaski High, Harley Griesbach from Pulaski High, Liz Moehr from Pulaski High, Katie Titler from Pulaski High, Sarah Spitzer from Fairview Elementary, and Tracy Wiedeman from Glenbrook Elementary. The 2010 Golden Apple Awards Dinner Program will be Wednesday, April 21, at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center with the program televised live on Fox 11 from 9 p.m to 10 p.m. Mark your calendars. The purpose of the Golden Apple Awards Program is to improve community awareness of the quality of education in the Greater Green Bay Area by recognizing high standards of professionalism, leadership, and innovation in teaching. The process starts in October when business people visit all of the area schools to present a token of appreciation to each of the K-12 educators. In the next phase of the process, community people nominate area educators (individuals or teams of educators). Nominated educators elect to enter the selection process by submitting an application. Seven Golden Apple recipients are selected annually from the Teachers of Distinction group by a multi-level screening of anonymous applications and personal interviews. Selection criteria is based on the National Board of Professional Teaching standards, which has identified essential knowledge, skills, and dispositions expected of experienced, quality teachers.

By Annie Schanock and Colin Abendroth The Ray Kroc Award is a prestigious honor awarded by the McDonalds Corporation to exemplary restaurant managers. This award recognizes the top one percent of managers in the entire nation, meaning only 139 out of 14,000 stores receive this honor. Due to her restaurants performance through undercover testing and a written recommendation from her supervisor Kim Parsons, Jill Coppersmith of the Pulaski McDonalds has been honored with the Ray Kroc Award this year. This recognition involves a cash prize, a Ray Kroc Award trophy and pin, and a trip to Chicago for an awards banquet. Coppersmith has worked at McDonalds for twenty one years. She began working in Ashwaubenon when she was sixteen years old and worked at a McDonalds in Green Bay in 1989. In 2004, she became the store manager of the newly opened McDonalds restaurant cessfully provide much-needed assistance in Haiti. In order to begin the project, the Diversity Club contacted the Friends of Haiti program and requested wristbands to distribute. The wristbands had already been produced for an earlier project, so the leftovers were used. These wristbands were distributed and sold for one dollar each and came in four assorted colors: blue, green, red, and white. At first, the efforts to help Haiti began solely in the high school, but they quickly began to course their way through to other schools. The project soon became a district-wide effort, ranging from the elementary schools to some of the local businesses. Along with the initial campaign that the Diversity Club started, there was a Penny Drive at Lannoye Elementary School, which summed up to a generous amount of $1,059.40. In total, the cumulative amount of money that was raised was around $3,700.

in Pulaski. Coppersmith has already won the Outstanding Store Manager Award multiple times, but she is extremely excited to receive this honor. When asked what sets this Mc Donalds apart from the rest, Coppersmith replied, The hospitality and environment make this McDonalds great. Our teamwork sets us apart from the rest. Coppersmith recognizes her crew for all of their hard work. Because she has such a great team in Pulaski, it was possible for Coppersmith to win this prestigious award. Coppersmith said, Everyone on my team is friendly, and I could not have earned this award alone. David Schanock, McDonalds restaurant owner/operator, said, It is an honor to have a Ray Kroc Award winner in our organization, and it couldnt go to a more deserving person than Jill. I want to thank Jill and the crew at the Pulaski Mc Donalds for their dedication.

Pulaski girls bowling qualifies for state

By Kevin Ripley It is a good time to be a member of the Pulaski High School bowling team. This year, both the girls and boys qualified for the state tournament in Wausau. The girls entered sectional play at Willow Creek Lanes February 5 tied for third place with Ashwaubenon. After bowling very well with a fourth place finish at sectionals with 1618 pins, they finished fourth in the conference, an achievement resulting in advancing them to state. The girls team consists of, Rachel Huben, Krystal Kozlowski, Teri Lewins, Ashley Pyle, and Melissa Skalecki, and they are coached by Ron Ross. Huben earned Second Team All-Conference and Lewins earned Honorable Mention Al-

Conference. I am very proud of our teams season, and it was a great way to finish off my senior year, said Pyle. Lewins said, As a freshman, going to state is a great and exciting opportunity. I am pleased with and proud of both of our teams going to state, and I hope both teams and our singles competitor Bert Lewins continue on farther in the state tournament, said Coach Ross. The championship attracts teams from ten districts, Green Bay being District 8 and the fourth largest. Friday kicks the championship off with the singles competitions, followed Saturday by the team competitions. Those teams which bowl well enough to continue on to the Sunday finals will be televised on ESPN.

According to Laura Hollister, president of Catholic Knights Branch #299, Mike is a good friend and neighbor and would do anything for anyone. Hollister greatly appreciates the help Drzewiecki provides whenever the branch plans activities, particularly fundraisers. Drzewiecki also is an active volunteer for other community groups.

Jay Olson and Troy Hewitt conduct a topographic survey at the Chase Stone Barn.

Robert E Lee & Associates, an engineering, surveying, and environmental company from Howard, donned their winter boots and began staking out the stone barn property to gather data for a topographic survey map that would help the Stone Barn Committee design the future Chase Stone Barn Park. Conducting the surveys were Jay Olson and Troy Hewitt. We use GPS (a Global Positioning System) to gather data about the property which is accurate up to one centimeter in open spaces, said Olsen. Hewitt explained that the topographic map they create from this data will show the boundaries, elevations, and contours of the property. It will also show

which way the water flows which will help define any potential drainage issues. The committee, along with a landscaping architect, will then use this map to design a site plan for the property. The topographic map will help them determine where they can put the parking lot, driveway, playground, and other features of the park. The town is currently trying to raise funds for the restorations of the stone barn and development of the park. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation, please call Kris at (920) 822-5447. Donation information, as well as other information about the stone barn, is also available on the town website at www.townofchase.org.

Course maps for all 2010 Cellcom Green Bay Marathon events are now available. The new 2.62 mile mini marathon, which begins at 8:30 a.m. on May 15, features a start line on Lombardi Avenue in front of Lambeau Field and finishes in the Lambeau Field parking lot using the same finish line as the full and half marathons. Similar to the former 5k, the race will include a lap around the track inside the stadium. The half, full, and relay marathons will take place May 16 starting at 7 a.m. A few minor changes were made to the courses for 2010. The start line will be relocated closer to Oneida Street to provide a more spacious starting corral. The marathon route will pass through Downtown Green Bay on the new City Deck and cross the Nitschke (Main Street) Bridge instead of the Walnut Street Bridge. The last mile of the marathon, marathon relay, and half marathon will approach Lambeau along Armed Forces Drive in front of the Resch Center, rather than Potts Avenue, which will be under construction. Maps for all events are available on the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon website. For more information visit www.cellcomgreenbaymarathon.com.

Knights of Columbus for their work to benefit the church and community. Drzewiecki is an excellent role model for youth and enjoys working with them. For example, children from the school helped Drzewiecki remove food from the old shelves at the food pantry. Following the construction of new shelves by Drzewiecki, the kids helped refill the shelves. He also enjoyed working with children and their parents in the ice cream booth at Pulaski Polka Days and in the polka parade. Catholic Knights is proud of the work Drzewiecki does on behalf of his branch, his parish, and his community.

NEW Zoo feels winter

By Ashley Smith, Dani McCole, and Leah Andreini The winter season is a challenging time for the NEW Zoo, said Carmen Murach, curator of animals. Some of the more sensitive animals need to switch from their outdoor habitats into indoor environments. Giraffes and tropical birds are some examples of these animals. Giraffes are sensitive to the cold and slippery surfaces, so they need to stay inside until the ice is completely melted. All of the animals also have a heated area available for them indoors which includes straw beds and warm water, said Murach. People find it surprising that most animals, like the lions, actually become more active during the winter. They also need to be fed more so they can stay warm in the cold weather. Many of the animals put on weight for the winter climate including the bears, badgers, and raccoons, said Murach. The zoo is preparing for the possibility of new baby animals this spring. Hannah, the penguin, has recently arrived from the Denver Zoo. She is to mate with the NEW Zoos own Dassen, the African penguin. The zoo is also expecting baby snow leopards arriving in the near future. The male snow leopard Buster is now living with Tammy, a female that arrived last summer through the SSP program. Buster is Tammys third mate, and though the first two didnt work out, they really seem to like each other, said Murach. Both the zoo employees and the animals are excited for spring to arrive. We dont get many visitors during the winter, and the animals can get lonely, said Murach, but we are excited for this upcoming spring because each season brings new opportunities and experiences.

Students instruct lessons in safety

By Josh Krueger and Margaret Pelton Saturday, January 30, the Lambeau Field Atrium hosted the eleventh annual Superbowl of Safety for kids. The event was sponsored by Bellin Health and Safe Kids of Greater Green Bay. Members of the Pulaski High School Leo Club were on site to assist young children learn common safety rules, such as stop, drop, and roll; look both ways before crossing a road; stop at stop signs; the importance of buckling up in a vehicle; and the dangers of electricity. Chris Bania, a sophomore at Pulaski, said, The children seemed anxious and excited to be there, which made it more fun for me. Some of the days events included face painting, learning

street safety, hula hooping, and taking pictures with the volunteers dressed in costumes. Pulaski volunteers dressed up in costume walked around the atrium waving to children and taking pictures with the children. In addition, other Pulaski Leo Club volunteers, Chantel White, Katelynn Krueger, Trevor Reinhard, Chris Bania, and Dakota White, taught children the rules of the road in Safety Town. Not only were the events for children, but also adults also were able to have the opportunity to have their faces checked for skin cancer. Given that about 1,600 people and 30 presenting organizations attended Saturdays event, one can expect the Superbowl of Safety will be returning for years to come.

PCMS holds eighth grade career fair
By Kayla Kraemer and Kat Johnson January 29, PCMS had some special visitors from various businesses to represent specific careers. The eighth graders got to choose four presentations that they were interested in through the day. Each presentation was 45 minutes and was repeated four times for every group of students. There were 15 different presentations that included Ag/ natural resources with Dr. Pam Denzer of Veterinary House Calls; architecture/ construction with Jed Vandenlangenberg; arts/ AV technology communications with Sara Bonk of The Wagg Inn; business management with Mark Linzmeirer of Business Solutions; education/ training with Jean McWey and Brea Huehnerfuss; finance with Vicki Vanniewenhoven; government public administration with Tom Hinz; health science with Nick Winkler of Bellin Health; human services with Ruth Fett of Parent Team LLC; info/ technology of Pulaski Community School Technology Department; law/ public safety/ security with William Fitzgerald and Donsia Stronghill of the District Attorneys Office; manufacturing with Pamela Krumrei of MCL industries; marketing/ sales/ service with Trina Townsend of Greater Insurance Agency; science/ tech/ engineering/ math with Diane Pryzybylski; and transportation/ distribution/ logistics with Dr. Sherwood Williams of Cavu Aviation Inc. Each business had presentations, some of which included power points and videos, while others consisted of hands-on activities and small group discussion. Pam Denzer of Veterinary House Calls had stations where the students looked at different x-rays of animals. Nick Winkler of Bellin Health talked about what it takes to be an athletic trainer, showed pictures of sports injuries, and also talked about the importance of triage. The students were able to see the highlights of many different careers. The fair helped to show them which careers may interest them, and also which careers they maybe want to shy away from. The eighth graders were chosen to be a part of the career day because they are old enough to understand the importance of education and also because they still have a lot of time to decide what they want to do. They are able to go into high school next year with a better understanding of classes they should take for a certain career field. The day was a success and the students enjoyed the presentations. They left the day with a better knowledge of their upcoming futures.

An Olympic medal is the greatest achievement and honor that can be received by an athlete. I would swap any World Title to have won gold at the Olympics. -Jeff Fenech (Australian boxer, 1984 Summer Olympics)

The Ag room welcomed them. The Ag room had animals on display to show the eighth graders what is offered in the Ag program. The Ag shop was also on display. The kids in the class put their engines out on display as well. There was a power point about the Ag program with music. There were free cookies and FFA brochures for both students and parents. The FFA members helped out with the students questions. The night was enjoyed by everyone. I liked showing the eighth graders around the Ag Diesel shop, said Josh Nooyen. Meeting the upcoming freshman was fun! said Haley Mahr.

2010-11 PEEP Enrollment Information

Last January the Pulaski School Board voted unanimously to implement a four-year old kindergarten program in the Pulaski Community School District to begin in the 2009-10 school year. The district initiated the Pulaski Early Education Partnership (PEEP) program as a community collaborative approach where the preschool programming is conducted in private day care centers and select parochial and public schools located throughout the district. In its first year, the PEEP program services 201 students with classrooms located within the following partnering locations: Polka Tots Child Care Center, Assumption BVM Parochial School, Peaceful Beginnings Christian Child Care Center, Building Blocks Child Development Center, Hillcrest Elementary, Fairview Elementary, and Glenbrook Elementary. An abundance of research supports the value of four year old preschool for our children and in its first year the PEEP program has enjoyed tremendous success! Enrollment for the PEEP program will be done on-line through the PEEP website at http://connect.pulaski.k12.wi.us/ dist_stserv_4k.cfm. As part of the on-line enrollment process, you will be asked to complete the PEEP enrollment form, Ages & Stages Questionnaire, and a health history form. On the enrollment form, parents will be asked to list their top three choices and we will try to honor one of your top three choices. The decision of placement will depend upon attendance area, availability of space, and transportation needs. If the family needs transportation, then the school district will decide upon the site. A child is eligible for the PEEP program that is 4 years old by Sept 1, 2010 and is planning to attend kindergarten in Sep-

tember 2011. If you are electing to enroll your child in kindergarten in 2012, then he/she would be eligible for this program in September 2011. This program is designed for the one year preceding 5 year kindergarten entrance. In early April, parents will be sent a letter notifying you of your childs placement. That letter will include the date of your childs sites May Parent Meeting and other information needed to complete the PEEP enrollment process. As with any program, questions do arise. Enclosed are Frequently Asked Questions, PEEP Transportation Brochure, PEEP Partnering Sites description, and a PEEP Program Brochure. Also be sure to check out the Pulaski Community Schools website and click on the PEEP link for information regarding each site as well as a map http://connect. pulaski.k12.wi.us/dist_glance_ boundaries.cfm of the Pulaski Community School District and boundary area for each school/ site. If you are not interested in having your child attend a PEEP program for the 2010-11 school year or if you are choosing to delay entrance to the 2011-12 school year for kindergarten, please call Rorie Gauthier at (920) 822-6021. We are excited for this wonderful opportunity for our four year olds and their families. If you have questions please contact Colleen Miner, Pulaski Early Education Partnership Coordinator at (920) 899-6300 or via e-mail at cmminer@pulaski. k12.wi.us.

Pulaski Jazz excels at festival

Jessica Belanger reads to children at Lannoye during story time at the PEEP Winter Wonderland.

Lannoye Hosts PEEP Winter Wonderland

Lannoye held the PEEP Winter Wonderland, January 29. Forty PEEP students and parents came to Lannoye from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. There were three sectionals for the students and parents to enjoy. First, they had a crafts session where students painted, made letters from glittery play dough, and made fleece scarves. This session was led by Christy Lepinski, Lori Duval, and Holly Smith. After that, the children went to the library for

story time with Jessica Belanger while the parents learned some home literacy strategies with Mary Chrisman. Then, the students went to the gym for some fun games with Donna Jacobsen and Joel Schauske. After all that fun, everyone went to the lunchroom for some hot apple cider, apple juice, and cookies. It was a great morning of fun learning for the students, families, and staff.

By Kevin Ripley As a long-standing tradition, three of the Pulaski High School jazz ensembles attended the University of WisconsinGreen Bay Jazz Festival, January 30. This competitive festival provided an opportunity for area jazz bands to showcase the hard work they have put into their music during the preceding months. Judges critiqued each band and awarded a rating, and a clinician worked individually with each band to musically improve its members. The PHS Jazz Combo, Jazz II, and Jazz III all proved their jazziness to the judges, but most notably was the combo whose members placed second overall and played during the awards concert at the Widener Center later that afternoon. In addition, the following students received awards for being named honorable mention soloists: Aaron Schroeder on trombone, Jacob Abegglen on guitar, and Jonah Wallschlaeger on tenor saxophone.

Jonah Wallschlaeger Susan Hancocks third grade class had the most minutes read per student in Lannoyes January Reading Calendars, with a total of 14,001 minutes (637 minutes per student)

Joel Schauskes first grade class had the second highest reading minutes with a total of 3,793 minutes (253 minutes per student). Each class gets to keep the Lannoye Traveling Reading Trophy in their classroom for a month!

Jacob Abegglen

Aaron Schroeder

Amanda Tremls kindergarten class is a fun place to visit. Assumption BVM 4 year old preschoolers partnered up with a kindergarten buddy to make baby brontosauruses. The kindergarteners traced and helped cut out the different parts to make the dinosaurs. All had a lot of fun cutting, pasting, and laughing. The preschoolers learned how to work with a partner and complete a complex project. The brontosauruses are displayed proudly on the dinosaur wall outside the 4 year old classroom.

Bay Port/ Pulaski hockey drops two games
By Nate Helmle The Bay Port/Pulaski varsity hockey team lost last week against two top 15 ranked teams. The team took on Notre Dame in what was looking to be a great match-up, but lost 5-1. Following the loss to Notre Dame, Bay Port/Pulaski dropped a nail biter to Fond du Lac by just a point with two seconds left in the game. As the regular season begins to wrap up, the team heads into the final week with games against the Fox Cities and Neenah.

The greatest memory for me of the 1984 Olympics was not the individual honors, but standing on the podium with my teammates to receive our team gold medal.

Pulaski advanced 10 people to next weeks sectionals held at Green Bay Preble, with three people placing first, three people placing second, and four people placing third. The people that took first were Justin Enderby, Jonathan Enderby, and Nevada Skenandore.

Corner Stone Church reaches out to youth

By Kelsey Trina February 5, Corner Stone Family Church hosted a family fun day at Suamico Elementary School. There was a multitude of different activities for the children to participate in. Members of the church ran a face painting booth, a disk race, a fishing game, and much more. Christian music blasted from the speakers in an effort to add to the mood. Pastor Richi Ray gave a sermon on word choices using honey and vinegar as symbols. The yummy honey stood for good words, Gods words, and the disgusting vinegar stood for the bad words, the Devils words. The children were given an opportunity to taste both the honey and the vinegar in order to help get the point across. At the end of the day, a multitude of gifts were given away to the children in a drawing. The grand prizes of this drawing were two brand new scooters won by Josh Miller and Alec Johnson.

Cell phones: Spinler conserving builds on your battery work ethic
Cell phones have rapidly become an essential device. Smart phones and standard handsets are offering more functionality, and people are using their cell phones to do more things, including replacing their land line telephone. With the advanced utility of cell phones comes added strain on battery life. With cell phones being the primary contact for 20% of the population, according to CTIA-The Wireless Association, having a phone with a charged battery at all times is becoming a necessity. Although progress is being made on the manufacturing side to increase the size and overall life of cell phone batteries, its often not enough to get the wear one would like from a charge. The good news is there are steps a user can take to conserve battery life. Cellcom would suggest the following to help conserve the battery life on a wireless device. On any phone you can change the back light setting to a shorter time frame. The longer the phone back light is on when it is not in use, the more power will be drained. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are added features to help you connect to the Internet and to other devices with ease, but there are times when running these features are unnecessary. Trying to find a Wi-Fi connection isnt going to be much help when driving the highway, and a Bluetooth signal isnt necessary if not trying to connect to another device. Turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when they are not in use. Smart phones offer a lot of options for applications, from the Blackberry App World to the Android Market. These applications add function and value to a cell phone, but also take a toll on battery life, especially when inadvertently left on in the background. Using an App Manager or Task Killer application will let a user know which applications are running and help turn applications off that are left on by accident. These simple steps take seconds and can help a user get added hours from a cell phone battery. By Cameron Spinler In todays employment conditions, it can be certain that many people are experiencing similar feelings to those of Scott Spinler when he was just a teenager. Upon graduating from high school, Spinler soon found out that college was not for him. He started working full time for a home construction company, making what was considered okay money back then. At age 20 and having put in a few years of work, he asked his boss about receiving a raise. After being denied, he was certain that working for someone else was not what he was looking to do the rest of his life. Spinler has lived his life since that moment saying, You will never be 100 percent satisfied with your income while working for someone else. Having been denied a raise, Spinler built up enough confidence from his experience with this company that he went into business for himself, creating Spinlers Home Improvements, a life-changing experience from that point on. Already having the tools and equipment necessary to start a carpentry business, he was very optimistic about his success as a business owner. As he began to build up a customer base and slowly build his own business, he grew more confident and visualized big things for himself. After obtaining good reputation in the community for his carpentry work, he soon began building spec houses as additional models of his talent. Long hours and hard work always reaps rewards, said Spinler. My experiences have made me a much stronger person. Why did this all happen to him so easily? Spinler owes it to all of his talents and handiwork. He said, It was also fate, fate that I should be in business for myself and be happy with all that I can accomplish. After having his own business for some time, it was necessary for him to hire some extra help to keep up with his demand for new homes. He soon accomplished building three to four homes a year with only a three-man crew, which included himself. Having started his own business at 20 years old, he made a name for

tion to succeed. Spinlers closing words were, Many years of hard work has brought a lot of satisfaction and happiness to me and I will never have any regrets in my business decisions thus far.

with your business cards and see how creative you can be with them. 4) Business cards have a shelf life. Unlike a daily newspaperpeople are not as apt to throw a business card away. Its easy enough to hang onto, file or put away in your wallet to reference at on a different day. 5) Business cards are great for referrals. I try to make it a point to give away two business cards, that way the person you just gave the card to, can refer your business to someone else. I make it a point to start conversations with people, where ever I go and hand them a business card at the end. 6) Business cards are universal it seems like everyone knows what a business card is even in another country. A business card has its own language. It identifies your business and what you do. You want to make sure that your contact information is correct and that your card tells your story. 7) A business card, in the eyes of many is a form or degree of professionalism. If you have a business card, you have a legitimate business. Make sure when you do your business cards, you do them right. Make sure they are done professionally. Ask others what they think of your card get some constructive criticism while designing your cards. Remember, this may be your customers first impression of you. You want to make sure that it is of high quality and portrays who you and your business are. Again, back to the basics with business cards. Keep them with you wherever you go and utilize them in every way possible. Watch your connections and business grow because of it. Tammy Brzeczkowski is coowner of Dynamic Designs Unlimited.

himself and was extremely satisfied with his career choices. Being a major customer for Midwest Millwork in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, for several years, they started to see him as a leading carpenter in the community and offered him an agreement for set lumber and supply costs. Its the connections and relationships that you build while in business that brings about rewards and benefits, Spinler said. His strong work ethic has led to customer appreciation as well as self-satisfaction and confirmed that he had to build a business from nothing. Upon all of Spinlers success as a young entrepreneur, there was one thing that he still would have changed. Even though I was successful in creating my own business, I would have liked to be more aggressive with it early on and have built it bigger than what I did, Spinler said. After working in home construction for over 15 years, Spinler was very satisfied with his business but wanted to look for a new challenge. Moving his family from Oak Creek to Green Bay required him to find a new business opportunity. Since the day that he was denied the raise, he says that he will never go back to working for someone else, leading to his opening of a Car-X Automotive Service in Green Bay. This business has been open for almost 10 years and doing well due to his ambi-

Are you using yours effectively?

By Tammy Brzeczkowski It is amazing to me how many individuals do not use their business cards to their full potential. In fact, just recently, I gave a business seminar and believe it or not half of the class did not even bring along with them their business cards. Such an easy and simple sales and marketing tool, and yet the cards were left at homeamazing. Sometimes I think we get carried away with technology that we forget about the basics. So, back to the basics. Business cards are crucial to your businessto your advertising and marketing campaign, to your success. Listed below are reasons why you should use business cards, and why you shouldnt forget them at home. 1) Business cards are inexpensive. Where else can you get a marketing/advertising tool for just pennies? Business cards are probably one of the best returns on investments that you have as a business. It pays to have them with you where ever you go. 2) Business cards are portable. You can actually take them wherever you go. They can fit in the smallest of spaces a purse a wallet. You get the picture. There should not be a reason that you do not bring your business cards with you anywhere. 3) Business cards can be utilized anywhere, they are very versatile. You can staple them on to a bag of cookies, you can slide them into an envelope, you can even leave them on a table at a restaurant, or on a bulletin boardand they are sure to be noticed. Think outside the box

If youre planning on selling your home this spring, theres no better time than these few weeks left of winter to get rid of the clutter. Here a couple of tips on bedroom clutter: Purge, baby, purge: If you havent worn it in a year, dump it. If something doesnt fit, its time for it to go. And if you just plain cant decide, then at the very least, box it up and get it out of there. Make it pretty: Sure, you might remember that walk in closet with the bowling pins, hula hoop, lava lamp and leopard print sweatpants piled to the ceiling, but youre doing so for all the wrong reasons. You want people to walk into your closet and imagine how great their life will be if they just buy your house.
