So you’re selling your home. It’s a great house, perfect location, wonderful neighborhood, highly rated school district, there’s no reason to do anything more to do to place it on the real estate market, right? WRONG!!

Factors to consider

Does your home look like it could be in a magazine? If you said yes, then I’ll take back my WRONG.

Take a picture of your living, dining, kitchen, and bedrooms. Do they look picture perfect? Do they look spacious? Does the furniture arrangement look open and inviting? Is there any clutter? Are there too many pieces of furniture? Is your wall color and décor neutral? Are there any personal pictures, awards or religious symbols?

Products made in the USA

made in USAThanks to the Toolbox Tomgirl for this episode of Tips from the Pros, about buying products made in the USA.

As a handywoman I am always reading various magazines on new products and trends in building and construction. Recently I was surprised to read in my Green Builder magazine about how rare it is to find a green building material made in America.

Green Builder magazine sent out an invitation to over 2,000 companies encouraging them to share information about their American-made green products, receiving only a few dozen submissions. The conclusion is that U.S. made green products are a rare and special breed, even though they are making use of the triple advantage of creating domestic jobs, reducing the impact of overseas shipping and making use of locally sourced raw materials...

Tips from the Pros: Staying Warm Safely

Thanks to Toolbox Tomgirl for this episode of Tips from the Pros staying safe while keeping warm this winter.

Although I personally have converted my wood burning fireplace to a pellet stove to supplement my electric heat, I want to offer some safety tips to those of you that are still using wood stoves and fireplaces. Because more than one-third of us are using wood burning stoves, fireplaces and other fuel burning appliances as a primary heat source, I feel it important to know some basic rules. Also, statistics show that heating fires account for 36 percent of residential home fires in rural areas every year.

With that said, please consider the following:

  1. Have your chimney, wood stove (and pellet stove) heating flues inspected and cleaned annually by a certified and licensed chimn...

Tips from the Pros: Hope for the disorganized

Thanks to Aim4Order for this month’s Tips from the Pros about organizing for disorganized people. Gain some organizational skills to help you keep your home in order.

organizing for the disorganized

We all aspire to be organized people. But realistically, not everyone can get organized. Others have problems staying organized. So what do disorganized people do to stay ahead of the clutter?

Dust collectors

Don’t use it? For someone who has a difficult time with clutter, the less stuff you have, the better off you will be. Recycle, give it away, donate it, sell it or trash it. As long as it’s gone, the method is up to you.

Write it down

Lists are great to keep you on task. A list will help with time management as well as keeping clutter to a minimum. Write down your organizing goals. Make a shopping list...
