    Outgrown your home?

    Have you outgrown your home? Unfortunately, our homes don’t always grow with us. You may have outgrown your home quicker than expected. What may have worked for a single person, a starter home, or a family with a newborn can soon become too small as families expand and multiple generations live under one roof.


    When you have outgrown your home, remodeling and adding to your home is one option for creating more space, but it can be costly, and the size of your property may not allow you to do so. Selling, and moving on to bigger and better may be the solution.


    The first thought when upsizing your home is to simply consider square footage, bedrooms, and bathrooms. When thinking about upsizing, it’s important to consider how your space will actually be used. If you have younger children (or possibly more on the way), then focusing on bedrooms and bathrooms makes sense. But if your children are closer to heading off to college or starting their own families, it may be better to prioritize group spaces like the kitchen, dining room, living room, and outdoor space—it’ll pay off during the holidays or summer vacations, when everyone is coming to visit
    for big gatherings.


    If you have outgrown your home and need more space, but don’t necessarily want a more expensive home, you can probably get a lot more house for your money if you move a little further from the city into the suburbs. While the walkability and short commutes...

    Clean Kitchen Sink Disposal

    Our go to method for cleaning our kitchen sink disposal is dropping a cup of ice into the kitchen sink disposal together with a half cup of rock salt. Keep the kitchen sink disposal running for about a minute to get all the gunk out. Once this is done, pour a cup of vinegar and half a cup of baking soda and let it sit for fifteen minutes. With this process, the solution will kill bacteria and the best part is, it will remove any odors all with a simple natural cleaner. Don’t forget to scrub the rubber flaps too!

    Clean Range Hood Filters

    To clean out your range hood filters, we recommend using a degreaser from an auto parts store. Take the filter off the hood. Mix...

    Importance Of Being Creative And Diversifying Your Content

    We've all heard the saying "content is king." This is very true, but to expand on it we like to say "effective and creative content is king." This blog will be explaining the different types of content, the importance of being diverse, creative, and original, and the importance of not spamming the same content.

    Video

    Video content is extremely powerful. It allows you to be extremely creative. Also, with YouTube has an extremely large audience and it is completely free to post there, with no limit on the time of your content. You can create a video an hour long and post it there, where on Instagram you can only post a video that is 60 seconds or less. 

    Originality

    BE ORIGINAL!!! You can take ideas from other people who are being successful with their content but you need to put your own personal twist on it. If you are just copying other people you will come off as lazy or repetitive and people will be less likely to engage. People are on these social media platforms to be entertained, not to see the same thing over and over again.

    Audio

    Don't forget about audio content. The best way to make audio content is to start a podcast (which we are in the process of creating, stay tuned...) Podcasts are powerful because they do not require a lot of commitment for users to engage with. A video you have to watch and listen so you can not be doing other...
