If it’s not enough of a pain getting your travel plans in order, the stress levels really ramp up when you need to find someone to take care of your pets while you’re gone.
You could board your pet(s) at the local kennel or veterinarian’s office, but if you plan to be gone for any length of time that will quickly eat into your budget.
A few years ago I was talking to my sister about houseplants. It might sound like a strange topic of discussion, but it is something everyone should think about. She has a beautiful home that is filled with detailed decor, lovely furniture, and plastic plants. I asked her why she chooses to decorate with fake plants instead of living ones. With a shrug she said, “Why would I want a real houseplant when the fake ones look the same but require no work?” She asked an important question and one that cannot be ignored. While plastic plants may (sometimes) look better and lack the maintenance of watering, weeding, and care, they can often release chemicals found in plastics. Ironically, living plants combat these same chemicals so the air is safer to breathe. I don’t think people recognize all the toxins within the walls of their homes. Even while using green cleaners, there are still pollutants hiding in your furniture, bedding, flooring, and walls. Here are twelve plants you can safely add to your home and additionally enjoy the healthy benefits they offer.
Don’t have an entryway?
Not a problem…make one!
Who doesn’t need…somewhere to toss the mail, the keys…and the kids’ backpacks after a long day at work and school?
When decorating your home, choosing furniture, rugs, artwork, fabrics, etc. is just the beginning. Styling your home involves displaying your belongings in both a functional and visually appealing way.
Remodeling your home is a process. You have to go through planning and budgeting and then the remodel can take forever. Deciding exactly which parts of your home you want to fix up is the first step so you can begin the rest of the process.
