Clean Up Your Room Day

On the "heels" of No Socks Day and National Lost Sock Memorial Day, May 10 is a day of the year neat-freaks and parents will probably love and children and teenagers probably won't. It's Clean Up Your Room Day!

If you've ever walked into a room and threatened to contact the hazmat team, you probably aren't alone! From stinky clothes and dishes caked with last month's meals, some kids' rooms should be classified as danger zones! While the origins of this annual "holiday" are unknown, chances are pretty good a fed-up parent probably came up with the idea and kudos to them!

Yessir, today is the day to roll up those sleeves and get to work! It's time to tackle the toilet, clean out those over-crowded closets and get rid of those dust-bunnies. No more procrastinating and excuses allowed no matter how old or young you happen to be!

May 10 is also National Shrimp Day.
