Things retailers do to make you love their stores - and spend more Holiday shopping can make you feel frantic, while you sprint from store to store, trying to find the right gift for everyone on your list. If you think you’re under pressure to achieve during the holidays, however, just image how the retailers feel; holiday season is often make-or-break for many of them. And they’ll go to great lengths to keep shoppers in stores, happily spending. From sweet-on-the-feet commercial flooring to interactive product displays that incorporate sound and video, stores use a variety of marketing tools to make you feel welcome, wanted, and generous during the holidays. As you’re scouting for deals this holiday season, keep your eyes open for these five “come-hither” tactics employed by retailers: * Fatigue-fighting flooring - As you scurry from store to store, you probably haven’t considered the toll that average store flooring takes on your feet. Concrete floors, covered by carpet, tile, or vinyl, are common in retail settings, and they can contribute to foot fatigue. Savvy retailers realize that if your feet hurt, you’re not likely to linger in one spot. By installing flooring with anti-fatigue properties, like ECORE’s forest rx, stores hope to keep shoppers more comfortable. While the flooring looks like hardwood - adding a touch of class in retail settings - it’s really a revolutionary composite of vinyl sheet laminated to 5 millimeters of engineered, recycled rubber underlayment. It’s more comfortable underfoot, easier to keep clean, and quieter than tile and some carpet - all of which adds up to a more pleasant environment for shoppers. * Lights, camera, action! - Taking advantage of

new technologies, many retailers have added interactive video displays throughout stores to entice shoppers to pause and learn more about a featured product. Some employ touchscreen technology to engage shoppers whose interest is already piqued by video and sound displays. Others have even added features that interact with shoppers’ smartphones, such as scannable barcodes that deliver information or coupons to a user’s phone. * An oldie but still a goodie - For a while, department stores stepped away from the whole concept of free gift wrapping, but these days it’s back in a big way. From big department stores to mom-andpop gift shops, retailers have rediscovered the value of providing this service to customers. Free gift wrapping is a relatively low-cost service, but it’s hugely valuable - both to time-pressed customers who appreciate the convenience, and for retailers who are able to keep shoppers in-store a bit longer while wrapping takes place. * The way to a shopper’s heart - Another triedand-true holiday enticement is food and beverage. You might expect to find samples in a grocery store or wine shop, but enterprising retailers know refreshments are welcome, regardless of what product they’re selling. During the holidays, clothing stores to hardware shops find their way into consumers’ hearts via their stomachs, serving a variety of treats that range from specialty candies available for sale in the store to holiday cookies, cider, or hot chocolate. * Y’all come back now - No matter how delightful your shopping experience, eventually you’re going

to leave the store. Smart retailers use a variety of tactics to encourage you to return another day from handing out coupons for future discounts at the cash register when you check out, to “greeters” who also bid you a fond farewell on your way out the door. Marketers know that if they can leave you with a positive feeling and a reason to return, you’re much more likely to shop in their store again. Of course, retailers have many ways to draw consumers into their stores. And as the holidays arrive, they’ll be adding incentives like these to ensure shoppers enjoy their time in stores more and hopefully spend more because of it.

Easy and beautiful holiday looks for the everyday woman Feeling your best during the holiday season helps make celebrating that much more meaningful. When you look beautiful, your confidence and charisma can shine, whether at a work party or a family gathering. You don’t have to dress like a fashion model to have a festive look, simply remember these fashion tricks and trends for a gorgeous, comfortable appearance no matter what you’re celebrating: Accessorize - Just as the holiday lights sparkle, so too should your accessories. This is the perfect time of year to use your costume jewelry to jazz up any outfit. Pair a statement necklace with a simple blouse for a cheerful look. Heading outdoors? Broaches are back - so pin that sparkler to your jacket collar or to your knit hat for a little extra pizzazz. Denim - You can’t go wrong with a great pair of jeans. Be sure to choose a pair that complements your best features, like dENiZEN (R) from the Levi’s (R) brand, which is sold exclusively at Target, includes a line for curvy gals. Being fashionable doesn’t mean being uncomfortable: with their innovative Essential Stretch fabrication, their denim is 40 percent more stretchable, plus it will maintain

its shape and soft feel for all-day comfort. Whether you’re heading to an ice rink or a restaurant, pair dENiZEN jeans with a cable-knit sweater for a wonderful winter outfit. Blazers - Blazers are back and ideal for winter weather. A classic tweed blazer makes for memorable holiday attire when paired with stylish jeans, or jazz up a houndstooth blazer with black slacks and a cashmere scarf. Not only will you have cool style fitting for women of every generation, but you’ll also have an extra layer to block the chill of Old Man Winter. Sweaters - Perhaps no other piece of clothing embraces the feeling of the holidays better than a great sweater. Chunky knits and cowl necks are big, proving a warm sweater has its place in everyone’s closet. Take queues from the traditional holiday hues and wear a sweater in ruby red, emerald green or rich metallics. Pair with leggings and boots and you’re ready to hit the town. Black jeans - Switch out your LBD (little black dress) for the LBJ (little black jean)! You can rock them by day with a blazer to the office, or with a feminine frock for an office happy hour by night. One look that is great to experiment with over the holidays

is a twist to the woman’s tuxedo. Take a pair of black skinny jeans, like the ones from dENiZEN(R) from the Levi’s(R) brand. Wear with a tuxedo jacket, a black blouse, bowtie and satin stilettos for a look that will turn heads all night. Textures - An easy way to breathe new life into your closet is by thinking outside the box and matching pieces you normally wouldn’t pair together. Blending textures is a great way to create new outfits - pair a silky shirt with a twill scarf, an angora sweater with a leather skirt, or those funky boots with a conservative cardigan. You’ll be surprised at the new looks that can be inspired. Makeup - The holidays are the perfect reason for playing up your makeup routine. Whether you rarely wear makeup or you have an extensive daily routine, hit up your favorite retail store and treat yourself to a few new

products. Nothing says “mistletoeready” better than red lips, but the shade is glamorous on nails, too. For eyes, metals are trending. If the idea of gold or silver on your lids intimidates you, just dab a bit on the inside corner of your eyes for a little touch of shimmer. The perfect holiday outfit isn’t something to fret over. Celebrate all the good tidings of the season and feel great in an outfit that looks great while letting your personal style shine through.

Find the perfect gift for the music lover on your list While most people truly enjoy the holiday season, it can also bring a considerable amount of stress. One commonly reported cause of holiday stress is shopping for gifts. Selecting the right gift for someone can be a daunting task. When choosing a gift, try to find something that relates back to the recipient’s interests, hobbies or pastimes. One popular hobby for people of all ages is listening to music. To make this holiday shopping season a little bit easier, here are a few ideas sure to “wow” the music fan on your gift list. * For the record aficionado. Across the country, record sales have seen a recent resurgence. Most major labels offer LP versions of newly released music and a growing number of classic albums are being reissued on vinyl. The obvious gift to consider for a record neophyte on your shopping list is a good turntable. Records should always be stored upright, never stacked one on top of another, so storage cases that securely keep albums vertical are perfect for record newbies. For any serious collectors on your shopping list, search your neighborhood record store, Amazon. Page 4

com or online album dealers for first pressings, which deliver audio quality close to the original master disc. * For the music lover on the go. Help your loved ones listen to their favorite tunes anytime, anywhere with a portable travel speaker. Travel speakers should be small enough to fit into a carry-on or backpack pocket yet durable enough to withstand life on the go. Also, look for new wireless offerings that allow users to stream music from their smartphone or device, no docking or cords required. The compact and portable TDK Life on Record Wireless Weatherproof Speaker features Bluetooth(R) wireless audio streaming and a sleek, weatherized design that protects it from the elements including water and dust. * Get them listening with the perfect headphones. A good pair of headphones is the must-have accessory for any music fan. Headphone quality has a large impact on sound, so getting the right pair is key. Look for sets with special features including in-line iPhone/smart device controls or wireless options that remove the limitations and restrictions of a cord.

The Newport News

With a wide variety of price points to choose from and different designs available - in-ear, on-ear, full-sized and more - you’re sure to find a pair for anyone on your list. * Supply them with the music they crave. Online music services are more popular than ever before. Give your loved ones the gift of uninterrupted streaming with an upgraded Spotify or Pandora account. For a small monthly fee, your friends and family will be upgraded to a subscriber account free

of disruptive advertisements. If you’re unsure of which streaming service your friends use or you don’t want to buy a subscription, gift cards are another option. Pandora and Spotify both sell gift cards online and these cards are also available at big box retailers across the country. For more information and gift ideas sure to please the music fan on your shopping list, go to www.tdkperformance.com.

Gifts for foodies guaranteed to leave taste buds dancing Between the growing trends of boutique restaurants, creative home cooking and entire television networks dedicated to food, you probably know a few people who consider themselves “foodies.” Whether they love craft beer, decadent chocolate treats or gourmet cheeses, you can find many great gift ideas for people passionate about food and drink. Make their holiday extra bright by indulging their interests and exploring some of these top trends in foodrelated gifts. Himalayan salt Himalayan salt is a trendy and truly unique gift for salt lovers and gourmets. The hard mineral composition means this particular type of salt can be carved into a variety of useful items,

such as a Himalayan salt block ideal for serving warm grilled meats or chilled for serving sushi. Gourmet chefs at home can infuse food and drink with a subtle hint of mineral-rich salt, adding a unique layer of flavor. Himalayan salt is also touted as a healthy, natural source of sodium by many health experts. Personalized stoneware Winter days call for warm baked goods, whether it’s a classic casserole or rich homemade pie. Cooks and bakers love to personalize dishes with updated versions of classic recipes, adding herbs and spices for extra flare. And when that dish is cooked in customized stoneware, there’s no mistaking who created the culinary masterpiece. Personalized stoneware is gaining popularity; by adding a name or special message, you’re giving a gift that’s truly one of a kind. Sweet and salty treats Flavor fusion is featured in some of the nation’s most popular restaurants, but home chefs are enjoying these taste mash-ups, too. One classic blend that has been gaining popularity is salty and sweet combos. Gift ideas that feature this ultimate mix include gourmet dipped pretzel rods

in various types of chocolate. Seasalt adorned confections are another popular option - look for caramels and truffles sprinkled with sparkling sea salt for the perfect salty and sweet pairing. Glass sets for beer aficionados It’s official - the craft beer movement is here to stay. There are more breweries in the U.S. than ever before, and beer connoisseurs are even picky about the mug they drink it in. Craft beer enthusiasts know that one of the best ways to enhance your drink is to use the correct glass. Glass sets make great gifts that are not only useful, but can serve as a beautiful display in a bar or kitchen when not in use. For example, beer lovers will enjoy a multiple glass beer tasting set. Be sure it includes glasses like a hand mug for light ales, footed glass for wheat beers and pale lagers, and an English pub glass for dark English ales. Gourmet goodies Unique gourmet treats are sure to impress even the most refined palate. From hand-dipped Champagne strawberries from Shari’s Berries, to gourmet caramel apples and cake pops, tantalizing temptations appeal to anyone with a sweet tooth. Gourmet popcorn and fruit baskets make great gifts for food lovers too,

and combining a few special treats in a gift basket is a fun way to present their favorites. Made in the USA Things made in the USA embrace the idea of “home is where the heart is,” while providing quality goods that last the test of time. Patronize boutiques that feature local artisans, or when shopping online, look for the location where the item was created. For example, RedEnvelope’s animal wood cutting board comes in pig, cow, rooster and chicken designs - ideal for any chef - all made in the USA. Grill mania Both men and women are refining their grilling skills by cooking dishes in their favorite barbecue style - and winter isn’t stopping them. Indulge their passion with a grilling gift that features some of today’s top spices and sauces. Trending spices of the year include turmeric, juniper, smoked paprika and galangal, a Thai ginger. Does your favorite griller like some heat? Add in some Sriracha or Korean chili paste for that spicy kick foodies are looking for. Cheer your favorite foodie with a gift that’s sure to please. These top trends in food- and drink-related gifts will stand out from the others under the tree.

Buying new electronics this season? Don’t trash the old ones! By Steve Skurnac Electronics are once again dominating holiday shopping lists this season. In fact, analysts with the Consumer Electronics Association predict shoppers will spend six percent more on electronics this year compared to last – or about $250 per consumer. And for every new laptop, tablet, phone, TV, gaming system and scores of other gadgets, an outdated device likely will be replaced. For those old electronics, the question is, “Now what?” First off, do not throw replaced electronics in the trash. Electronic devices are comprised of a range of toxic components that can be harmful to human health and the environment if discarded in the same waste stream as the rest of your household garbage. Trashed electronics, or “e-waste,” contain heavy metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium, which can leach out of landfills and into groundwater or nearby waterways. The good news is that there are several alternatives for disposing of your e-waste, including reuse and recycling. One ideal method that is in keeping with the holiday spirit is to find a local community electronics recycling fundraiser to properly dispose of your outdated electronics while helping to raise funds for a local organization.

With the current economic climate most nonprofits, schools and other organizations are experiencing harder times. Not only will recycling benefit an organization in need, but the environment as well by diverting the e-waste from the landfill. Visit us.simsrecycling.com/events or contact your favorite nonprofit or other charitable organization to find an event near you. Another option is to look into electronics take-back programs. Many electronics retailers, like Best Buy or Staples, will accept your e-waste for free or a small handling fee, regardless of brand or condition. Several manufacturers, too, will take back retired products, although these take-back programs vary in terms of fees and conditions. A quick internet search of your local electronics retailer or manufacturers’ recycling policy will provide instructions for their take-back process. Many cities’ waste management divisions also have electronics recycling programs, though opportunities differ in size and scope. Some municipalities have designated e-waste collection sites, while others might host periodic events to collect e-waste. Typically municipalities contract with third-party e-waste recyclers that process the collected material on behalf of the city.

Check your city’s website to learn about opportunities to drop off your e-waste or have it collected. Finally, consumers should look to see if e-waste recycling companies, such as those that contract with cities, have a facility nearby. These companies usually contract with organizations and businesses to handle large volumes of e-waste, but many welcome materials directly from individuals. Depending on the company, some accept electronics at their local facility at any time, some have designated days for public dropoff and others host periodic collection events with local partners. Unfortunately, however, there are some bad seeds in the e-waste recycling industry. Individuals, municipalities and businesses should take several important steps before selecting a recycler, thereby ensuring their e-waste is properly managed. For example, make sure the recycler is either Responsible Recycler (R2) or e-Stewards certified, which is one indicator that the recycler is adhering to environmental best practices. Also, even if you think your electronic device has been cleared of personal data, be sure the recycler offers data destruction compliant with the National Institute of Standards and

Technology (NIST) to make certain all data is wiped clean. Lastly, ask with whom a recycler does business. Some recyclers don’t actually handle the recycling of equipment and only collect the material for recycling. Not knowing exactly where your electronics are being recycled could put you—and the environment—at risk. The best recyclers are those that “own the lifecycle,” offering a complete range of remarketing and recycling services internally, thereby eliminating reliance on subcontractors, and thus improving accountability and security. This holiday season when you are making room for your new electronic devices, remember there are plenty of homes for your old ones, but the garbage is not one of them.

Small bites make holiday entertaining easier Mouth-watering desserts in small bites are all the rage this holiday season. Guests love the idea of having lots of choices at holiday gatherings, so more options in smaller portions will be popular this year. According to Sissy Biggers, lifestyle expert and former Food Network Ready, Set Cook! host, smaller bites allow you to stage an elaborate holiday soiree more easily. “It’s easy to create a fun, memorable holiday party with simple entertaining techniques that yield big results! Guests will love the variety of smaller treats that pack big flavors and the simple addition of decorative touches effortlessly transform the look of a room in minutes,” she says. Turning your favorite holiday recipes into delightful nibbles is easy, too. Following are some great entertainment tips for making a wider assortment of holiday treats in smaller bites and serving them up in style: * Small bites, big delights - Turn your favorite holiday recipes into delightful nibbles, allowing your guests to sample a larger variety of treats throughout the party. * Elegant, dipped desserts - There’s no need to make everything from scratch. Add some holiday pizzazz to pretzels, fruit, nuts or cookies using Ghirardelli’s new Premium Dark and White Candy Making & Dipping wafers. Simply melt the wafers in the microwave and dip or drizzle over your favorite treats. It’s a quick way to dress up

your holiday treats. * Add a hot chocolate bar - Let your guests get in the act by setting up a make-your-own sundae station or a hot cocoa bar. Stock with chocolate pieces, whipped cream, sprinkles and Ghirardelli’s new Premium Hot Cocoa flavors: Chocolate Caramel, Double Chocolate and Chocolate Mocha. It’s not only fun for your guests, but also easy to prepare. * Decorate with flair - Sprinkle glitter on tabletops and place small glazed pinecones or miniature holiday balls and baubles around the room to add a chic and decorative touch. Artfully arrange food to add interest to buffet tables. Position food on tiers using holiday tins in a variety of heights to create visual interest and maximize often-limited table space. * Be creative with your presentation - Add flare by serving treats in nontraditional ways - a big margarita glass, small shot glasses or baked small bites on clear glass pottery. If you’re looking to try something new this holiday season, consider this delightful dessert recipe. Ghirardelli Dessert Cups Ingredients: 4 cups Ghirardelli Dark Melting Wafers 8 small water balloons For mousse: 8 ounces Ghirardelli Classic White Baking Chips 4 tablespoons orange liqueur

2 tablespoons water 1 1/4 cups heavy cream 2 egg whites Directions: In a double boiler over hot water, melt 2 cups of wafers. Cool about 5 minutes. Inflate balloons to 4 inches in diameter and tie ends in a knot. Holding balloons by the knot, dip into melted wafers, tipping to cover balloon halfway up. Place balloon, knotted side up, on wax paper-lined baking sheet, holding balloon in place until it starts to set. Repeat with remaining balloons to make 8 cups. Place in freezer for 5 minutes. Melt remaining 2 cup of wafers and repeat dipping procedure. Place in freezer for 10 minutes. Snip hole in each balloon to deflate. Carefully peel away from dessert cups. Refrigerate until needed. Use the same day. Fill cups with ice cream, sorbet, mousse or fresh fruit such as raspberries or strawberries. For mousse: In double boiler over hot water, melt white chips with liqueur and water; stir gently to blend. Cool until melted

white chips mixture no longer feels warm to the touch. In large bowl with electric mixer, beat cream until soft peaks form. Fold cream into melted white chip mixture. In large bowl with clean mixer, whisk egg whites until soft peaks form. With rubber spatula, fold egg whites into white chips mixture. Divide mousse among 6 dessert bowls or glasses. Chill at least 1 hour. Makes 8 servings.

Human Options Nets $250,000 for Domestic Violence Programs

The Newport News

Eve Barker with John Pricz and Human Options CEO Vivian Clecak

Photos by: Frank Ishman Photography Dr. Drew Pinsky moved and inspired over 550 attendees at Human Options Fall Fundraising luncheon at the Westin South Coast Plaza Hotel. With family ties to the organizations graduate speaker, Dr. Drews presentation was both emotional and educational covering all aspects of human trauma including numerous stats and statistics tied to domestic violence. Estimated net proceeds of over $250,000 will support Human Options mission to provide a safe haven and life-changing programs to help abused women, their children and families rebuild their lives and work with the community to break the cycle of domestic violence. Attendees were welcomed by husband and wife co-chairs Moujan and Todd Walkow followed by comments from Human Options CEO and co-founder Vivian Clecak. The Human Options graduate speaker shared the podium with her 16 year-old daughter who she claims was the major factor in leaving an abusive husband/father several years ago. An added connection was that Dr. Drew Incoming Board Chair Nancy Dahan with Human Options Chief Development and the speaker grew up in the same Southern California community and Officer Darla Olson and current Board Chair Artyn Gardner remain friends to this day. Radio and television personality, Drew Pinsky, M.D., is board-certified physician in internal and addiction medicine and assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at the Keck USC School of Medicine. His thought provoking presentation was followed by a question and answer period which furthered topical ideas and discussion. The fall-themed luncheon included opportunity drawings for a $500 shopping spree to South Coast Plaza with one-year valet parking as well as a one-night stay at Westin South Coast Plaza with vouchers to theatre performances at South Coast Repertory. Major event underwriters included the Jaffe Family Foundation and Karen & Scott Green. The mission of Human Options is to provide safe haven and life changing programs to help abused women, their children and families rebuild their lives, while working with the community to break the cycle of domestic violence. Now in its 32nd year, Human Options provides a full continuum of services to stop the violence from prevention and early intervention programs to emergency shelter and long-term transitional housing. For further information Event co-chairs Moujan and Dr. Todd Walkow about Human Options visit www.humanoptions.org.

a revoluTionary new FooT supporT everyone can beneFiT From

Just like the technological advances in electronics where the IPhone changed the way we think about and use phones, there has been a significant technological leap forward in custom orthotics. It is estimated that 95% of the population suffers from mechanical foot imbalances. These are primarily seen as over pronation of the feet. Pronation is where the feet/arches collapse or the ankles tend to fall inward. Abnormal pronation is certainly seen with all flat feet, but people with high arches can also have pronation problems. While the average person might not be able to identify abnormal pronation, one can look at the results of pronation and determine if these new orthotics could be of benefit to them. If you have any of these problems, you are a candidate for the new Perfect Posture orthotics.

This list encompasses about 95% of the U. S. population!

BUNIONS HAMMERTOES NEUROMAS HEEL SPUR OR PLANTAR FASCIITIS ACHILLES PROBLEMS KNEE, HIP OR BACK PAIN TIRED FEET OR LEGS AFTER ACTIVITIES

You may ask, “What is so new about these Perfect Posture arch supports?” These orthotics utilize a new casting method that puts the foot into its best position. When the cast is made, the mold is actually the shape of the new orthotic. The new casting process results in a full contact orthotic which supports your foot so that there is contact with all parts of the foot in its optimal position. Another improvement from the old technology is the orthotic device is made of material that is calibrated to YOUR weight. Utilizing this new material and process results in an orthotic which will act as a spring for your arch, as it will flex just the right amount when walking, standing or exercising based on your weight. Should you gain or lose 15% of your weight the orthotic should be recalibrated. For patients who will say I already have orthotics, this situation is analogous to having an old cellular phone. Yes you have a phone but you get so much more function and convenience with smart phones. So discard those old orthotics and come in! You’ll benefit from the latest advances - while you get the most out of your feet - and your life!

Tips for finding the perfect guy gift this holiday season Guys can be the hardest people to shop for, and finding the perfect gift has become a daunting holiday tradition. Sure, they will appreciate the thought behind another bundle of tube socks - and might even wear them - but there are gifts that bring a wow factor and make even the most

stoic guys light up like a little kid. Add to a collection Adding to a guy’s collection is a great gift idea. If you’re unsure about what to choose, ask him what he collects and what he needs to take it to the next level. He will be flattered you’re showing interest and

you’ll gain valuable insight into that perfect gift. Give tools for do-it-yourself projects You may not know every project the DIYer in your life is working on, so choose a multi-purpose tool. Tools like the Klutch Cordless Impact Wrench

from Northern Tool + Equipment are the perfect partner for all those auto, construction or equipment maintenance projects. This 24-volt, cordless wrench delivers heavy torque and includes four different sockets assuring he has the right piece for any job. Fill his garage or man cave Every guy has a little space in the home he likes to call his own. For some it’s the garage, for others it’s the man cave in the house, and for others maybe the garage is his man cave. Wherever he chooses to relax, he might enjoy a personalized beer pitcher or an under-the-counter fridge. His garage will also look great with a new toolbox or shop stool. Find the unexpected Finding a gift he might get from a buddy will be a pleasant surprise for him. The Harley-Davidson 7-Liter Pilsner Glass from Kotula’s will turn heads and create a lot of laughs. This giant beer glass can hold up to about 18 cans of his favorite beer and will make a big statement. If you use these shopping tips for the guys in your life, you won’t even need to check your holiday list twice. With a good plan in mind, you’ll find options he will enjoy and actually use.

Don’t let messes leave you in a ‘holidaze’: Easy tips for post-holiday clean up The holidays bring plenty of cheer and the arrival of family from all over. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, after all. But with family visits and hearty meals also comes a big share of messes. After hefty helpings of gravy and chocolates, there will be plenty of cleaning required to get your home back in tip top shape for the new year. It’s enough to leave anyone “holidazed,” but with the right tools and tricks on your side, it does not have to. Here are some tips to help get your home clean again after those pesky holiday messes so all you have to worry about is enjoying the season: Create smaller tasks: Create a master list to help you break down cleaning into manageable chunks. Instead of tackling a full mess in one room, only to start again in the next one, complete the same task in each room. For example, dust every room before hitting them all with the vacuum. With this approach, you’ll see a cleaner home in no time without making too many trips back and forth from the broom closet. Donate unused items: With the holidays come gifts and housewarming presents. If you are on the receiving end of unwanted or

simply unneeded gifts, why not donate them to someone else? Many organizations accept donations, including clothing and other belongings yearround. Consider donating that extra toiletries set, scarf or books to charity to clean up some clutter and help brighten someone else’s day. Put cleaning staples to work: You may think you need different cleaning products for different jobs, but just one classic cleaning product - Clorox Regular-Bleach - can tackle more messes than you think from laundry to helping sanitize and disinfect countertops, dishes and everything in between. For example, you can even use bleach to kill odor-causing bacteria left in your refrigerator after that big family meal and leave it smelling fresh and clean. Remove food from the fridge and wash the surfaces with a solution of 1/2 cup Clorox Regular-Bleach per gallon of soapy water. Let it stand for five minutes, rinse and then air dry for a few minutes before replacing the food. For more uses, visit www. BleachItAway.com. Organize holiday decorations:

Before putting away decorations, invest in better organization and storage materials. It may take a few more minutes to put away lights if they are wrapped around a spool, but consider how much faster it will be to hang them next year. By spending a few extra minutes this year, you will save yourself the stress in the future. In addition to these tips, remember to embrace the funny moments that come along with the mess. No matter what you’re celebrating this holiday season, no one is immune to messes, and the holidays are rife with them from dinnertime spills to that family

member who enjoyed a bit too much eggnog. Instead of letting the messes get you down, take a moment to step back and enjoy the happiness of family visits and the extra time together. But because the messes will happen, remember to laugh at them. You can also share your best holiday messy moment at www.BleachItAway. com for a chance to win $20,000. In addition to great prizes, you can also find more of the know-how you need to tackle your holiday spills and houseguests (plus some laughs to get through it).

Chapman, Orange CA Amount of unpaid balance and other charges: $240,258.93 Street Address or other common designation of real property: 212 VIA DIJON , Newport Beach, CA 92663 NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at the trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call 714-573-1965 or visit this Internet Web site www.priorityposting.com, using the file number assigned to this case CR13-1083. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address or other common designation, if any, shown above. If no street address or other common designation is shown, directions to the location of the property may be obtained by sending a written request to the beneficiary within 10 days of the date of first publication of this Notice of Sale.
