Spring Cleaning Tips

Spring is on the way... Get ready to get organized!

Spring is on the way... Get ready to get organized!

Spring is on its way, and it’s time to start thinking about taking on some spring cleaning projects.  No matter how organized you try to be, it can be difficult to keep up all the time.  That’s why Coppin’s Gifts has a great selection of As Seen on TV products that can help you get everything under control.  Whether you choose a great Stow Away Shoe Organizer, or a Sham-Ease cloth to help with your cleaning, you’ll find everything you need to get your spring cleaning underway!

Spring Cleaning Tips

  • Analyze everything in your home and determine what needs to be done.  You can get a notebook and survey each room.  Jot down the problem areas.  Does your family keep piling shoes up next to the front door?  Is the entryway piled with mail?
  • Before you can really get going, it’s a good idea to figure out why certain areas are cluttered.  Why are the shoes piling up by the door? 
  • Then you’re ready to find neat solutions to these organizational problems.  Your whole family can pitch in with this task.  Older children could be responsible for their own mail.  Figure out other ways to clear down on that mail pile—see how many bills can be paid automatically.
  • Keep things neat and organized by setting up a time once a week to give everything a quick once-over.  Is everyone holding up their end of the bargain?

Once the organizational process is a success, you can keep everyone interested by implementing some sort of an award.  The “Best Organizer” of the week can get to eat off of the “You are Special” Red Plate!

Meet Some Ugly Dolls!

Ket says, "Do the math!"

Ket says, "Do the math!"

Ugly Dolls are so ugly they’re cute, aren’t they?  That’s why we love them so much here at Coppin’s Gifts.  If you’re having a hard time choosing an Ugly Doll, we figured we’d give you some background information on a few of our favorites.

UglyBot is here to serve you! Like Rosie from The Jetsons, he’s happy to fetch your morning beverage. (Maybe if you’re nice enough, he’ll even do your job for you!)  But, really, what UglyBot wants is a friend.  He’ll be a great friend, too!  He’ll never turn his back on you, and he’ll always love you.  Aww, UglyBot!

Ket may not seem like the smartest Ugly Doll, you’ll soon see that he’s smart in other ways.  When you ask Ket what 2 + 2 is, he won’t say “4.” Instead, he’ll probably draw a picture of a UFO or something.  And, really, can you argue with that?  His favorite saying is, “Do the math!”  And with Ket, you never know what that really means.

Oh, Pointy Max.  Pointy Max is a loose cannon.  You can’t control him, you can’t stop him, and you can’t tell him what to do.  Unless, of course, you have some cheese.  Pointy Max has a weakness for cheese.  If you’ve got cheese, you and Pointy Max will be inseparable and unstoppable!

It won’t take you long to find the Ugly Doll that you love right here at Coppin’s Gifts!
