Maintenance Tip for Summer!

June 11, 2015 2:01 pm

Who wouldn't love to save money this summer? Here's one way to save with your AC… Anytime the temperature outside is 80 degrees or higher be sure to leave the thermostat set at 75 degrees or lower and do not turn it off all day. Normally turning off your AC while you're away at work will save you money but when the temperature outside is too hot it is more cost-effective to leave it running.

Stylish Storage Solutions for Arts and Crafts Supplies

June 10, 2015 4:54 pm

Whether you’re an avid crafter or your children are often doing art projects at home, you know how difficult it can be to find storage space for all of those paints, markers, fabrics, crayons, and other supplies. Here are just a few stylish ways that you can keep your arts and crafts supplies neatly organized until your next DIY project.

Mason Jar Storage System [redtri.com]
Turn your storage solution into an art project in itself. This colorful DIY idea involves covering old mason jars in fun, pattered washi tape, then using those jars to store everything from markers to paint brushes and even loose buttons.

Kids’ Craft Apron [www.bhg.com]
If your child has trouble keeping his or her craft supplies together while doing a project, you can make this simple apron as your next family art project. Simply take an old gardening apron, use the belt to tie it to the side of your child’s crafting table, and fill the spacious pockets with all of the essentials.

Hanging Storage Bins [apartmenttherapy.com]
Screw a metal rod from any home goods store into your wall, then attach S-shaped hooks and hang bins in all sizes from each hook. You can use these to keep your art supplies within reach but off of your tabletop.
