It’s just like Mary Poppins has taught us: “In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and – snap! – the job’s a game.”
Maybe these words won’t make you jump for joy at scrubbing your toilet, but cleaning your home can be just as exciting as having your home clean. With a little bit of luck, for example, you can discover things you didn’t even remember you had. I mean, just look at the treasures people who have already begun their spring cleaning have found within their four walls. From a Blockbuster membership card to an old Game Boy Advance, these antiques definitely made their chores worthwhile.
