5 Stress-Free Ways to Keep Clutter Out of Your Home
Is your cluttered home causing you stress? You’re not alone. A disorganized home can cause tension and anxiety for most people, but cleaning up your act doesn’t have to add more stress. In fact, tidying up your home can be a fun and rewarding process! You just need to use these tips and tricks to simplify your organizing, decluttering and cleaning efforts.
Don’t Forget to Clean as You Declutter
Getting rid of clutter can be great for your health. But if you’re not getting rid of dust, dirt and dander at the same time, you could just be spreading those air contaminants around. So make your plan to get organized, make sure you also have a plan to get everything really clean. Since you probably have a laundry list of “to-do’s” on your plate, this may be a good time to opt for a professional cleaning service. You can use online search tools to discover experienced cleaners in your area, and even check out average pricing and reviews.
Look for Ways to Repurpose Your “Junk”
Decluttering your home is about more than downsizing your belongings. This process also gives you a chance to really get every inch of your home organized. From the kitchen cabinets to your bedroom, there are tons of storage solutions that can help you do just that. You may even be able to repurpose some of the things you would otherwise give away. For instance, empty boxes are great for sorting out your freezer, and magazine holders are perfect for keeping your potatoes, onions and root vegetables cool and fresh.
Shop for Organizing Tools You Don’t Have
It can be fun to upcycle household items into smart storage, but sometimes you may want something with a little more polish. Luckily, major retailers are getting keen to the organizing needs of consumer. So you should have no problem finding stylish organizing tools that you can easily customize to fit your tastes. Pot racks and shelving top the list, but one of the most versatile storage products you can find are utility carts. You can use these rolling storage-makers in just about any room of your home, for a simple way to get organized.
Create a Plan of Attack for Your Clutter
If you only have a small area to clean out, you may be able to jump right into your efforts. For most people, however, decluttering and organizing is a whole-home effort. It’s easy to get overwhelmed without a solid plan, so sit down and figure out just how you’re going to get this big job done. The most important step in your plan should be to stay patient as you work through this process. Clean out one small space each day if that helps. So long as you have clear goals in mind, how long you take doesn’t really matter. Don’t forget to put together a fun decluttering playlist too, so you can keep yourself from getting bored with tidying up.
Use Tidy Secrets to Maintain an Organized, Clean Home
You did it! You’ve successfully sorted your belongings and organized all the things you decided to keep. Now that the hard part is over, all you need to do to maintain that clean is to follow a few tidy house hacks. Get yourself into little habits, like making your bed every morning and wiping down your bathroom each evening. Those baby cleaning steps can be so much more effective for keeping your home organized, and they take much less effort than tackling a major mess build-up all at once. Got a busy schedule? This is where that cleaning service you researched may make sense to use on a more regular basis.
Stop letting your disorganized home stress you out, and stop stressing out about getting it clean! Decluttering and tidying up really can be a joyful process (or at least not a distressing one), if you have the right tricks up your sleeves. So gather your supplies, call in the professionals and get to work on transforming your cluttered home into the clean, stress-free haven it should be!

Are you suffering from FOMO? Do you suffer from fear of missing out on having a beautiful, lush green lawn? Tired of waiting until Spring/Summer so you can start seeing your green lawn again? Now you can stop wishing you had your neighbors lawn.
I saw this product recently and it will definitely solve the problem of having brown grass. Lowe's sells a product called Evergreen Lawn and Turf paint. At this moment it is $29.37 for a 32 oz. container which claims to cover 1000 sq. ft of lawn. This product is certainly worth giving a try especially if you are selling your home and you want the pictures to come out nice, or you want Buyers to get a great impression on how the lawn would look lush and green.
The product claims are:
The product reviews from Lowe's.com:
4 of 4 people would recommend the product.
I tried this paint and it was awesome! Made my lawn look a whole lot better! I am now buying more of it the Fall/Winter and even into Spring.
I got the chance to use this product and I must say it is everything that I thought it would be. The instructions and applications are ABC and it has my yard looking phenomenal! I will say when cleaning your pump sprayer to use SIMPLE POWER DEGREASER! Also make sure you spray your sidewalk before applying to keep the dye from adhering to your sidewalk! I will definitely be purchasing more!
EnviroColor 4Evergreen Grass paint is amazing. I went from having a front yard with dormant, yellow burmuda grass to a nice green, life like yard of grass. Just simply mix with water in a spray bottle and spray it on. It has rained several times since application and it still looks just as good as it did when I applied it. This is a simple way to have green grass year round and not have to water it.

When to Call a Professional: Advice for Homeowners Who Like to DIY
Americans pride themselves on their initiative and proclivity for doing things themselves. That pioneer mentality is deeply embedded in the nation’s DNA, and it’s probably why so many Americans have embraced the do-it-yourself revolution when it comes to home improvement. These days, you don’t necessarily need a contractor’s background to make substantial upgrades to your home. Many people are able to learn enough from YouTube how-to videos and from the local hardware store to markedly increase the value of their homes.
However, there are some jobs that even the most enthusiastic do-it-yourselfer should think twice before tackling. Sometimes, saving a few bucks just isn’t worth the risk of damaging your home or yourself.
Up on the roof
The roof is one of the most important features of any house, and should typically be left to a professional roofing company. The condition of your roof can have a lot to do with whether you’re ready to sell and how much you can expect to get from the deal. Whether you’re looking at repairs or an entire replacement, it’s important to get a number of quotes from contractors, bearing in mind that the average cost of a roof replacement can range anywhere from $4,900 to $14,100.
Switching out electrical components or jumping into a rewiring project may seem like a good idea at first, but unless you’re really sure about what you’re doing, it’s probably better to let an experienced professional handle it. The potential for serious injury (or worse) is just too great, and the margin of error is too narrow to take an unnecessary risk. Professional electricians go through many years of training to earn certification.
Replacing an electrical outlet may seem like a simple project, but one wrong move, and you could have a flash fire on your hands or make an unscheduled run to the hospital to be treated for electrical shock. If you’re contemplating doing electrical work yourself, remember that the more involved it is, the more likely it is that codes and building laws apply, which could lead to all manner of complications later on when your home goes on the market.
Bathroom upgrades are some of the most popular among DIYers because so much of a home’s value is tied up in its bathrooms. Putting in a new toilet (for an average of about $350) or vanity and repairing a leaky faucet may be within your ability and experience, but moving or rearranging plumbing can be a risky endeavor considering the damage you could do. A major remodeling project may very well require a level of expertise that an overzealous DIYer may be ill-equipped to handle.
One question you should always ask yourself is whether you have the tools necessary to take on a plumbing project. Some of the implements needed for such work aren’t usually found in a DIYer’s toolkit. Before launching into a project about which you’re unsure, always seek the opinion of a professional you trust and, preferably, with whom you have previous experience. You can save yourself money and some serious headaches by getting an informed second opinion.
The main idea behind any home improvement project should be to add aesthetic value and functionality to your home for the least amount of money possible. That’s why so many homeowners are so anxious to take on project themselves, even those that may be beyond their capability. It’s essential to be objective and honest with yourself when making such a decision, especially when your project involves complex and potentially dangerous work.
