Home Sweet Room – Create a Haven with These 5 Tips

1279048430b3b61d1a963a025a26b020Okay, we are obsessed with succulents! They’re stunning and nearly impossible to destroy. Succulents store water just about everywhere, allowing them to thrive in various conditions while remaining low maintenance. Throw a few on your windowsill or desk for an immediate earthy touch. There’s something about bringing nature inside that makes a space so much more zen. Home Depot has quite the collection.

337e812b7d2bb8ecd06e678f003e0b07A photo string is a flexible, creative way to display pictures. Hang a string/wire vertically or horiztonally on your wall, and use clothes pins to hold up photos, collages, ticket stubs, meaningful letters, etc. It’s quite easy to compose. Just purchase string, clothespins, and command hooks from any local crafts store. Decorate the pins with jewels or paint, and hang the string using command hooks. Done.

35b7ec7fd98eb1768edee6cbdbb96471I’ve never really understood why bulletin boards come in such an unattractive, brown color. No fear, there’s a fix for that too… Simply buy a cork board tile, modge podge, and the fabric of your choice from any crafts store. Glue the fabric over the tile using the modge podge, securing the fabric ends around the edge using hot glue. Use your cute new board to post reminders, photos, tickets, anything.

Our final suggestion truly embodies “last but certainly not least.” If you haven’t heard of washi tape, your life is about to change for the better! Washi tape is a low adhesive, prettier version of masking tape composed of rice paper. Like chalkboard paint, it has an array of functions. We’re loving this use, while this one goes perfectly with our frame wall suggestion above! In fact, you can use washi tape to decorate the clothespins and pictures on your photo string, as a border for your homemade bulletin board, and to spice up the succulent pots. If this isn’t enough, check out this amazing pinterest board for more washi tape inspiration!

Moving? Save Money with Our Tips

92111Moving_1145Web
Moving can quickly drain your energy – and your wallet. We’ve compiled a list of money saving tips you can apply to your next move to simplify your life during this busy time and reduce the stress that often accompanies relocating to a new home, whether the change is just across the street or in different state or country.

Save on packing material costs. It can be a shock to step into a packing store or Home Depot and see that small, simple cardboard boxes cost upwards of a dollar each, that bubble wrap goes for around $15, and that tape starts at $3 a short roll and adds up quickly. And the cost of hiring a mover, which is usually a must, is already high enough that you shouldn’t be spending much on supplies. Some tips to keep your spending minimal:

  • If you look hard enough, you will be able to find all the boxes you need and more for free. For example, if you work in an office, ask to keep the boxes where the printer paper comes. Apartment Therapy has a list of 8 more places you can find free boxes – just keep an eye out and plan ahead.
  • Most moving companies will allow you to return unused boxes if you bought too many, so if you’re not sure of how many you’ll need, it’s always best to buy in excess so you don’t have to do too many runs to the store.
  • Minimize the amount of boxes you need by keeping clothes or other items inside drawers. You can cover the drawers with Press’n Seal instead of duct tape to ensure they remain closed and free of tape marks. If you do buy duct tape, buy it in different colors and designate a different color for each room in your new home to make finding the items easier (and that way you also save time since you don’t have to write on each box what it contains). Mark the boxes you want to open most immediately with a red sticker so they are easier to find.
  • As much fun as popping bubble wrap is, it’s even nicer to save money which you can then use on more entertaining pastimes. So to wrap delicate and easily breakable items, use clothing, old rags, and even blankets. They will protect your items just as well while being less wasteful. Saving money and being kind to the environment? Win-win!

Tired of scavenging for boxes? If you’d rather save time than money, U-Haul has an option which might be convenient: moving kits for apartments, 1-2 bedroom homes, and students, among other options.

Time is your friend. The farther ahead you plan, the more time you have to accrue your ‘bank’ of materials and to start packing so you don’t fret last minute. A stress-free move is possible!
