I'm not sure why, but they seem to sneak up faster and faster, and some stores start advertising for Christmas at the end of summer which is maddening.

Okay, maybe not that relaxed, but I guarantee following this advice will help you find a smidgen of peace when it comes to seasonal gifting. 1. Create a Budget Ho...
Why Every Homeowner Should Own a Pressure Washer

Why Every Homeowner Should Own a Pressure Washer

At Home
If you don't own a pressure washer you are missing out on one of the most satisfying experiences there is. That is, the satisfaction of watching your old dingy, run-down, weathered, home exterior components go from nasty and grungy to sparkling like new again. If your house wasn't built for you it's possible you've never even seen it look as good as it will after you pressure wash the ever-living heck out of it.I bought one of these for my husband a few years ago as a present but I'll admit to you that I think I love it and use it more than he does.At the time of purchase I wasn't sure what he would need it for but I now realize there's little that you DON'T need it for, when it comes to the outside of your house and some areas inside as well.I'm not a clean freak by any ...

Are Cutco Knives Worth The Money? If you're looking these up you are either curious on what Cutco is because you saw them being demo'd at a home show, or someone mentioned these knives to you.Then, you wondered, "What on Earth makes these knives so expensive?", and most likely followed that question up with, "Are they really worth the money?".I'm going to give you the most annoying answer there is: It depends.Do I own these? No. I saw them at the home show and our Brother and Sister-in-Law bought them there.Their Experience:They use them every day since they cook at home every day. After the initial sticker shock I have never heard either of them complain about the price. Our Brother-in-Law cut himself with one of the knives last week and verified that even...

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse

At Home
Survivalism has been around for a long time but with all the natural disasters we are experiencing in recent times, it becomes irresponsible not to be at least minimally prepared.While probably unrealistic, weird thoughts do cross my mind like, “How truly prepared am I for the Zombie Apocalypse?”. Let's be honest, I'm probably not even prepared for a really long power outage lasting more than a few hours.I have friends who are hopeful and eagerly awaiting the day they’ll get to use their zombie-killer maces and crossbows, but I confess, my arsenal is lacking.Although the reality of a zombie-plague is a bit of a fantasy, everyone should be prepared for an emergency where we might be without some of the luxuries that we have today.When was the last time you had someone wo
Moving Tips that Save Friendships

Moving Tips that Save Friendships

At Home
I think most of us would agree that moving is very stressful event, from both a mental and physical standpoint.Apart from being an exhausting undertaking in every way, it can be quite costly and time-consuming. It's also emotionally draining - you have to accept leaving your residential memories behind and watch all of your personal items get shoved in a box and potentially lost. At a minimum, a majority of your accumulated life's possessions will be inaccessible for a while.Moving is also stressful for those who are helping you, there are people I no longer speak to because of their inconsiderate moving etiquette.There is never such a thing as a "fun" move, but there are various degrees of success or failure - I think I've seen some of the worst moves in the history of bad...

How to Fix Sunken Pavers

At Home
  After 7 years of living with sunken and crooked bricks on our front walkway and a few quotes around $8000.00 to fix it, I decided it was time to try fixing it myself. This tutorial is for people who want to know how to fix sunken pavers. This is not starting from scratch installing pavers. For that, I imagine the process is similar but would probably require more planning and geometric bordering of the path.How this happened: The previous owners probably spent a lot of money to have the walkway done, but they did it very sloppily. First, they placed the brick over the existing concrete in some places rather than removing the concrete first. This is a very hacky way of doing it. Then, they didn't properly tamp the ground, meaning, it wasn't well packed in, so it has shifted...
