Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles it’s that time of year….back to school time! now that the kids are settled in their new routines, it’s time for me to get the house in order. this is the time of year when i like clean out the house and get rid of everything we have outgrown or don’t use anymore. with the holidays approaching, i NEED the house decluttered and to make room for any new things the kids will acquire from the holidays. so it’s the perfect time for me to partner with Savers, local thrift shops with a big heart!
