The Maids

The front of the refrigerator is a wonderful place to display all sorts of things from kids’ schoolwork and drawings to special cards and letters. Unfortunately, you can’t keep something on the fridge forever—your maid service will appreciate the chance to wipe down your fridge exterior!—so where does it go when it’s time is done?

Sometimes, it’s okay to throw it away as you do your normal housekeeping. Other times, it’s something special you want to keep close at hand or display. To keep piles of clutter from developing, finding ways to show off your special papers is important. If you can’t settle on an idea, here are four to try:

The Effect of Colors in Your Home

Colors have long been known to affect the way we experience a room. Business owners use this knowledge constantly, and places like casinos put serious time and research into how certain elements of design will encourage or discourage people to play a certain game.

House cleaning has a similar affect, so ask your maid service to help out—people will unconsciously notice whether your home is clean or dirty and can sometimes feel claustrophobic or antsy in a cluttered room.

If your home is clean and you want to look at how to take advantage of the effects of color for yourself, check below the break for a few tips!

Organize Your Grocery Day: The Master List

Whether you go to the grocery store to stock up once a week or you run to the grocery store every few days, a master list will help you find organization in your shopping as well as ensuring you don’t buy things you already have (unless they are on sale!).

The master list is one of a few principles that can help your grocery shopping go more smoothly. Meal planning and house cleaning before you shop (or letting the maid services clean while you’re gone) can also make your grocery efforts more fruitful.

When you really want to keep your house clean, it can seem like there is no end to the housekeeping chores that need to be accomplished. From laundry and dishes to mopping and vacuuming, the to-do list goes on and on.

If you have the time to do it, it can be tempting to try to do it all, but one person trying to keep the house at the peak of clean every moment is exhausting and in the end, not as rewarding as you might think.

A Christmas Gift Idea for Anyone On Your List

The other day, someone asked a friend, “What do you want for Christmas?”

Her response? An amused chuckle and simply, “More time!”

Around the holidays especially, everyone needs just a little more time. The schedule is too tight, the plans; too involved. Time is not something you can wrap up in a bow and put under the tree. Or is it?

Are you building your holiday collection and décor but find it lacking? As you're house cleaning and regarding your decorations with a keen eye, it’s okay to admit you don’t like what you have so far. Unfortunately, it can be harder to find the right holiday decorations, theme, or setup that you love and instantly reminds you of the holidays in a nostalgic but new way.

As with a lot of things like this, there is a trick to finding a direction for your design, and it comes down to a few of your favorite things.

Waking up to a messy home is not a happy feeling especially if you have to rush off to work and school. The best way to avoid this is to clean before you go to bed at night. You will feel so much better waking up to a clean home in the morning and also knowing that you will come home to a clean home.

No matter what material your outdoor furniture is made of, it will age with time, as well as with Mother Nature. Even if you add the patio furniture to your housekeeping list, it will still age. Your chairs, chaise lounges, swings, tables, etc. can be renewed so you can brighten the life of your patio area. Vinyl, plastic, fiberglass, aluminum, steel, wrought iron, stainless steel, bronze, pewter, brass, and many other materials have cleaners and paints that will work for their particular structure. Depending on what you have, you will need different tools and products to refresh the furniture.

Choosing the best color for your bedroom is important factor to consider when you are building or renovating your house. This is important because you will create an ideal resting environment for each member of your family. Most people even go online to find helpful tips and suggestion from experts in order to select the best color for their bedrooms including different colors combinations.
