Cleaning And Organizing— Year-Round

(NAPS)—Once a year, many people scour their homes— deep cleaning and getting rid of items they haven’t used or worn in years. However, people who clean and stay organized throughout the year are more likely to be happy, healthy and financially comfortable. “I see clients every day who are extremely stressed due to the level of disorganization in their life,” said Lisa Zaslow, professional organizer and owner of Gotham Organizers. “If you keep your home organized, with a minimal level of clutter, you’ll see a number of benefits above and beyond being able to see your floor.” What are the other areas of your life that benefit from being organized? Emotional—A high level of disorganization can lead to excessive stress. Zaslow helped one client reorganize her home, and afterward the client “woke up happy, instead of stressed like before.” Health—An organized home is cleaner, keeping germ and bacteria levels to a minimum. F i n a n c i a l — “ Yo u ’ d be surprised how many people have money in old purses when I come to help them get organized,” said Zaslow. Additionally, being orga­nized means you’ll be on top of paperwork—one missed credit card payment can rack up late fees, increase your interest rate and affect your credit score. Knowing that there are all these additional benefits, how can you get started? According to Zaslow, it doesn’t matter where you start, so begin with the easiest or most annoying task. • Cull through closets and storage to find items that you’re no longer using and get rid of them, like gadgets, last season’s clothes or collectibles. If they are still in great condition, bring them to an eBay Trading Assistant. Trading Assistants are experienced eBay sellers around the country who will sell your items on eBay for a commission. They do all the work for you— making you money while you clear out clutter. • Box up excessive paperwork or magazines and label them “Items to sort” as the first step. It will make you feel better to know the process has begun. • Organize one room at a time to make the task less overwhelming. Making yourself a schedule of which room comes next helps show your progress. Finally, “Think of it as a trea­sure hunt. You’ll find something that you’ve been missing and something you didn’t even know you had,” said Zaslow. For more information, go to http://

(NAPS)—Many believe container gardening is the new way to grow: It’s a fun, easy way to add color and bold seasonal interest to any size garden. Planting flowers and tropical plants in containers every year can become costly, but it’s easy to minimize the expense by mixing in some shrubs. Every garden can benefit from the more permanent, year-round beauty of flowering shrubs in containers. It’s easy and rewarding to do, as long as the gardener follows a few simple guidelines. It Starts With Location Choosing a location for a potted shrub is the first step, as this will dictate what you can grow. Locations with easy access to water and out of the path of high winds are best, and some sun is imperative for shrubs. Roses, butterfly bush and lilac need at least six hours of uninterrupted sunlight daily; hydrangeas, azaleas and weigela will benefit from some shade during the hottest part of the day, especially in warm climates. Choose Carefully Your local garden center is the best place to shop for plants. To help narrow your choices, consider how tall you’d like your shrub to be and what you’d like it to contribute to your garden. Low-growing shrubs, such as OSO Easy roses and Lo & Behold butterfly bushes, offer vivid color at eye level, while taller shrubs like Fine Line buckthorn and Black Lace elderberry add dramatic height and create privacy. To make sure your new shrub will survive the winter in your area, choose a variety that tolerates temperatures at least one zone colder than the zone you live in (visit to find your hardiness zone). The container you choose must be large enough to accommodate your shrub. Look for sturdy pots that are at least 18” across and 16” tall to allow enough room for the plant to grow; larger is preferable. The container must have several open drainage holes in the bottom. Since your potted shrub will remain outdoors year-round, look for frostproof or weatherproof containers if you live in a cold climate. Potting Tips Fill your container with potting soil. Do not use garden soil or top soil, which may hinder drainage. Avoid putting anything in the bottom of the pot to take up space, as the weight of soil creates stability and the shrub’s roots will need the room. Fill the pot to within 2” of the top, tamping soil down gently to prevent settling later. Make a well in the center of the pot to accommodate the new plant. Remove the shrub from its pot (rap on its sides to dislodge it), gently untangle any visible root, and place it in the hole. Add or remove a bit of soil until the plant sits at the same level in the new pot as it was in its original container. Rotate the plant a few times to make sure that its best side faces outward. To finish, gently push the soil around the root-ball, eliminating air pockets and making sure the entire root mass is surrounded. Water immediately and thoroughly. Water Is Key Water is the most important factor in caring for your potted shrub. The soil may dry out quickly, especially during periods of hot weather. Check it frequently and water when necessary, ideally in the mornings. Winter won’t be a problem if you’ve selected a hardy plant and weatherproof container, but the plant may need a drink during winter warm spells when the potting soil is not frozen. Come spring, apply a granular fertilizer formulated for woody plants and incorporate it into the top few inches of soil. The shrub will thrive for several seasons in its pot; you’ll know it’s time to transplant into the ground when growth becomes less vigorous and it becomes difficult to keep it well watered.

Ten Tips To Cut Home Energy Bills

(NAPS)—The secret to reducing your monthly energy bills is following the latest tips to cut down on your household’s everyday consumption, according to the Department of Energy. 1. Use the latest lightbulbs. Lighting-related costs add up to about 10 percent of your electric bill. Reduce your lighting usage by up to 75 percent by using the latest lighting technologies, including compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) or light-emitting diode (LED) lightbulbs. 2. Keep the wattage low. Make sure that your lightbulbs aren’t a higher wattage than the listed wattage for sockets. 3. Hit the pool. Use 75 percent less wattage than incandescent pool lights with white Pentair IntelliBrite LEDs, and save up to $1,500 a year by switching from a single-speed pump to an IntelliFlo variable-speed pump, part of the Eco Select family ( 4. Install ceiling fans. You’ll be able to raise the thermostat for your air conditioner about 4 de­grees without compromising relief from the heat. 5. Find and plug all air leaks. Save 5 to 30 percent on energy costs by caulking or weather stripping gaps where air flows: window frames, doors, baseboards, electrical outlets, mounted air conditioners, attic doors, fireplace dampers, pipes, wires, mail slots. If you can rattle or see daylight around a door or window, it’s likely leaking air. 6. Turn the water heater down. The energy used to heat your water accounts for up to 25 percent of your energy usage. Turn down the temperature on your water heater to 120 degrees. 7. Set up a programmable thermostat. Cooling and heating systems account for about 56 percent of your energy use. Set your thermostat for the morning, day, evening, overnight and vacation to control costs. 8.
