Budget-friendly tips to prepare your backyard for entertaining

Real Estate

07 03 13

T

here is no better place to entertain on a warm sunny day than in your own backyard. But before the parties start, make sure your outdoor space is a place where people want to spend time. In 2010 and 2011, Americans spent approximately $359 billion on improving their homes, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

That's a median cost of $3,200 per household. But you don’t need to spend a ton to make significant improvements to your outdoor space. Whether you’re enjoying a small gathering with family or hosting a big celebration, a few simple changes can set the stage for fun, without breaking the bank. “The key to outdoor entertaining is ensuring your outdoor space is a comfortable

and welcoming atmosphere for everyone,” said Sharon VanRoo, Seasonal Category Lead at Sam’s Club. “A good tip for transforming your backyard is to invest in a few quality accessories that will last beyond one season.” Ask about guarantees and ensure furniture and patio cushions are weather proof or listed as “all-weather.” Here are some other budget-friendly tips for preparing

your backyard for entertaining. Décor Set the tone for your outdoor space by using color as an accent. Emerald green, the 2013 Pantone Color of the Year, is the hot color this year for outdoor décor. Neutrals and reds are also a good way to utilize your budget, as these colors are consistently on trend. And if you’re not sure of the

best way to accessorize your outdoor space, look for ideas and extra savings in outdoor living departments at warehouse clubs like Sam’s Club. You can elevate the outdoor experience with inexpensive touches, such as replacement cushions, an outdoor rug, throw pillows, a chaise lounge, stack chairs or planters. Lighting options from reused holiday lights to solar-powered lanterns are another easy way to create an inviting ambiance without spending a lot of money. Prepare in Advance The best way to reduce stress and stretch your budget is to plan ahead. By stocking up on essentials in advance, such as beverages, snacks and paper goods, hosts will be well prepared for company. Dining When hosting a grilling gathering, get creative and think beyond the hamburger bun. Fresh fish and vegetables are healthy options to throw into the mix and not as costly as you think. Buying fresh meat and produce in bulk is a better value that brings high quality entrees and sides to your gathering. Fruits and sweets, like peaches and pound cake, are delicious when grilled. Keep Bugs Away Where there are outdoor parties, there are bugs to crash them. Position citronella candles around dining and cocktail tables as table décor and as protection from unwanted flying visitors. Use mesh food covers to protect buffet settings and unattended plates while guests mingle and consider vacuum sealing leftovers for the next party or visitors. You can find more ideas for your backyard at www.Samsclub.com/outdoorliving. Refresh the guest list and spruce up the backyard. It’s time to head outdoors and share the excitement of summer with company. -StatePoint

Tips for setting up or improving a home office

(c) Goodluz - Fotolia.com

I

f you work from home, you know how important it is to turn your home office into an efficient workspace. And these days, making improvements with that goal in mind rests on keeping up with the trends and times. Ergonomics The design of your workspace can have a tremendous impact on how you feel, and ultimately, your productivity. There are steps you can take to reduce your chance of

on-the-job stress injuries like back pain and carpal tunnel syndrome. Experts advise setting up your desk so that all the items on it are within easy reach, your feet touch the floor, and your eyes are at the same level as the top of your monitor. There are ergonomically designed keyboards, chairs, desks and foot rests on the market that can help too. If possible, use a headset or speakerphone to prevent that bad habit of cradling your

phone between your ear and shoulder. Data Protection Half of Americans have lost or accidentally deleted files from their primary computer, according to recent studies conducted by Wakefield Research and a2b Research. And one-third admits that they have never backed up their computers, or haven’t done so in more than a year. Don’t leave your valuable documents susceptible to

such a fate. New technology is making investing in data protection easier and more affordable. For example, Carbonite offers online (commonly referred to as cloud) backup solutions that are robust enough for a medium-sized business and affordable for even very small ones. Because it backs up computer files automatically, you can set it and forget it, so you can concentrate on your bottom line. And if your work keeps you on the go, you’ll

have access to your backed-up data from any computer, smartphone or internet-connected device. “For many businesses, their data is their most valuable asset,” says Pete Lamson, Senior Vice President of Cloud Backup at Carbonite. “Cloud backup offers another layer of protection, as you’re protecting yourself from anything that could happen to your home office, like natural disaster, theft or power surges.” More information about business data protection can be found at www.Carbonite.com. Separation While smartphones and tablets make it nearly impossible to totally tune out sometimes, it’s important to at least try to separate your work space from your living space to the best of your ability. Not every smaller home or apartment may allow for a complete physical separation, but the more you can psychologically disassociate the two, the better work you will do during work hours and the better living you will do the rest of the time. If you can’t separate your office with a door, try dividing your room with a bookshelf, oriental screen or other room divider. These solutions can be both practical and affordable. Taking the time to modernize your home office will improve the quality of your work. -StatePoint

New home technologies can save your family time, money

Real Estate

ew technologies are now enabling homeowners to automate lights, entertainment and security systems, thermostats, door locks and more. And experts say that coordinating these control systems can save you time and money, and increase the value of your home. Gone are the days when home automation was a futuristic concept from science fiction or an out of reach luxury, as new innovations are making such technologies more affordable and easier to use. “While many automation products available today are stand-alone devices, offering control for only one component of your house, such as your thermostat or music, it’s possible to bring all of those various smart home features together under one system,” says Martin Plaehn, CEO for Control4, a market leader in home automation. “And doing so can make your life easier.” If you’re not entirely sure that modernizing your home in this way is right for you, there are many things to consider, ranging from security to budget

to comfort to increasing the value of your home. I Stay safe: An automation system can deliver peace of mind. Before you left for vacation, did you forget to lock the door or schedule your lights to rotate? With a system like the Control4 MyHome app, you can use your mobile device to check your security system or lock your front door from wherever you are in the world. I Stay on budget: It may be hard to imagine a high-tech home, but flexible systems allow you to start small, controlling just one room and then expand through the home. For example, Control4 can start with a single controller, remote and an app to automate and control existing or new smart devices. Over time the system can grow, adding more devices and functionality to meet your changing lifestyle needs and budget. I Invest: While there are upfront costs to modernizing your home, you may recover some of your initial investment if you’re looking to sell any time in the future. Such an upgrade can potentially drive up your home’s value and will definitely set it apart from

others on the market. I Go green: By scheduling everything -- from lighting control to thermostat management, you can stop wasting energy at home and save kilowatts and dollars. You can even program your shades to be drawn at a certain time of day to keep your house cooler. An installer can consult with you to offer more ideas for how to make your home more energy-efficient. I Reduce clutter: With one remote, you can turn on your television, draw the shades, dim the lights and control the temperature of the room, making space on your coffee table for more snacks! I Ease of use: Many home automation systems operate from a device you’re already familiar with, such as your smartphone, tablet or computer. More information about modernizing your home can be found at www.Control4.com. Envy the Jetsons? While robot maids may still be a futuristic fantasy, new technologies available today can help you live a more comfortable lifestyle. -StatePoint

New tips for disaster preparedness at home

N

o one likes to think about worst case scenarios, but being prepared for them is crucial to quickly recover in the event they occur. But there’s good news -- new technologies and tools are making it easier to protect yourself and your loved ones from all kinds of emergency situations. Your Home When is the last time you replaced your home’s windows? New stronger materials -including impact-resistant glass and laminated glass -- are now available, that are specifically designed to handle storms, hurricanes and other extreme weather scenarios. Think about the kind of weather that threatens your home and consider better protecting it with upgraded windows. While there’s an upfront cost associated with these replacements, you could potentially save big on repairs down the line. Your Data One area of disaster preparedness you may not have given much consideration to is data protection. The Federal Emergency Management Agency states that 40 to 60 percent of businesses who experience a data disaster never recover. From your financial information to your children’s baby photos, don’t let that same type of devastating data loss happen

to your family or business. Cloud backup should be a key component in your disaster preparedness plan, according to experts. “In the event you experience data loss from fire, natural disaster or even theft, you can recover your data quickly and easily from the cloud,” says Piyum Samaraweera, Senior Director of Product Management at Carbonite, a provider of automatic online backup. “Think of it as an insurance policy for your irreplaceable documents, photos, emails and more." For more information about protecting your personal data from disaster, visit www.Carbonite.com. Your Pets In the chaos of an emergency, your dog or cat is more likely to lose his or her collar and identification tag. Should you become separated, you can greatly increase your chances of a reunion by having a microchip implanted and registering your pet with a microchip company. Microchips, which are recommended by the Humane Society as extra protection, can be implanted safely by a veterinarian. These days, disaster preparedness is about more than having a radio, batteries and a flashlight. Ensure your disaster plan includes 21st century solutions. - StatePoint
