ho’s in holiday mode? Or should I ask who isn’t? The halls of every mall are decked and Christmas music is floating through the air in nearly every restaurant and store. Many apartment buildings get into the spirit of the season with some decorations – some communities even arrange for tenant gatherings and festivities. For some it’s a deeply religious time of year, for others it’s not. But it’s not just about Christmas, it’s about community. If you want to decorate, just find out what your building permits. Some management companies will encourage you to add your own personal touches to decorative installations in common areas. Some reserve the common area decorations to company-approved and owned items. Some buildings allow you to put a wreath on your door while others prefer you limit your festive decorations to the inside of your suite. This time of year isn’t just Christmas, it’s Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, Festivus or something else. Some buildings recognize and decorate by sticking with a winter theme, others incorporate different traditions. There is no reason you can’t approach the property management and ask whether you can share your traditions too. For me, this time of year isn’t about a specific holiday, it’s about enjoying, sharing, recognizing all that’s happened in the year that’s coming to a close. Whatever your traditions are, make it a time of sharing and warmth, and include those in your community. It’s a great time of year to find that new apartment. We’re here to help. With Renters Guide in hand you’ll find the perfect place. Our magazine and website, homeTRADER.ca, offer the best selection of available apartments as well as informative articles and advice, making it easy to make your move!

What’s new? Glad you asked! Homestead Land Holdings completed a deal this fall the largest in the company’s history. This is great news for Toronto’s rental community as it means there is an enormous number of suites that has just been added to Homestead’s portfolio of rental buildings. With an enviable reputation for quality, customer service and communities in prime locations, Homestead is a trusted name in the rental industry. Their buildings are in demand, and Homestead goes beyond just providing a place to live, they offer a comfortable lifestyle and great service. The new properties are all in the Henry Farm/Don Valley neighbourhood. Located right by Highway 401 and the DVP, they are across the street from Fairview Mall. They enjoy proximity to great schools – including Seneca College – parks, community and recreation centres as well as a wide range of businesses and services and many upscale amenities. The area is well-served by the TTC with both bus and subway access close by. Two of the buildings Homestead purchased are new, while three of the buildings are undergoing renovations to modernize and improve the properties, aligning them with Homestead’s standards and practices. Homestead has already completed the laundry room renovations. New machines and a great environment will make laundry less of a chore. Still in progress, suites will all be getting new windows. The elevators will be replaced. Homestead is upgrading the landscaping to make the grounds even more welcoming and enjoyable. Lobby renovations and other overall improvements are also scheduled. The buildings are also being assessed for their functions and systems so that the energy efficiency can be improved.

8G

Based on the current amenities and location, Homestead recognized these as prime communities to add to their portfolio. Laurel Grove, located at 25 Parkway Forest Drive Poplar Grove, located at 125 Parkway Forest Drive and Elm Grove, located at 80 Forest Manor Road, are the three existing buildings now in the Homestead family. Just south of Sheppard, they enjoy the urban location while being set back into a the tranquility of the neighbourhood. Suites are stylish, with hardwood floors, great views and most with balconies. Renovations will be done as needed to the spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom suites. The two new buildings, located at 1751 and 1761 Sheppard Avenue are The Uptown Towers on Sheppard I and II. Offering the rare opportunity to live in a modern and newly suite, The Uptown Towers buildings offer condo-style apartments. Exuding style and elegance, these offer ideal city living with features and appointments to match the lifestyle. Great architecture makes a real impression upon arrival. Amenities are upscale, offering a fabulous lifestyle to call home. The fitness facility offers state-of-the-art equipment, while the party room makes it easy to entertain in without leaving home. Suites have definitely been treated with a designer’s touch. Hardwood flooring is complemented by stainless steel appliances in these spacious and generously proportioned suites. Central air is standard and balconies are available. One-, two- and three-bedroom suites easily accommodate your needs. For more information on these, and all other Homestead communities, please visit online at www.homestead. ca. The informative website had news and extensive information about each community as well as slide shows so you can take a closer look.

Henry Farm

Don’t be fooled by the Name! This is prime urban living

W

by Ivan Sandoval

hen your residence is on the top of a valley looking down to the world below, it is suffice to say that you are living on prime real estate. As the name suggests, the neighbourhood of Henry Farm on the top of the Don Valley was initially a farm property that belonged to George S. Henry who was Premier of Ontario in the 1930’s. Now, houses, apartment buildings, townhouses, schools and parks have come together to create this tight-knit community in the heart of North York.

16G


The Area Henry Farm is located right where the Don Valley Parkway and Highways 401 and 404 meet. The 401 marks the southern border, while Sheppard Avenue marks the northern border. The east Don River marks the western border before hitting Leslie Road while Don Mills Road marks the eastern border. Henry Farm is nestled within several other unique neighbourhoods including Bayview Village, Don Valley Village, Graydon Hall and the Parkwoods. All of these areas have significant rental populations no doubt due to the fact that they are all close to highways and public transit, including the Sheppard subway line and Oriole GO Station. Shopping Henry Farm is located adjacent to Fairview Mall, one of Toronto’s premiere malls that boasts over 270 fashion stores and services. Fairview also includes a theatre and several restaurants and cafés. Directly behind the mall, you can find the Fairview Library and Theatre providing area residents with alternate, educational ways to spend their free time. For your smaller amenities, residents can walk across Don Mills to Parkway Forest Plaza, which includes a grocery, pharmacy and is located

beside Parkway Forest Park, one of three parks in the area. Havenbrook Park, which borders the 401 and the Betty Sutherland Trail are the other two green spaces available to Henry Farmers. Living in Henry Farm There is plenty of activity and an ideal mix of urban and suburban in Henry Farm. While the abundance of parkland and the Don Valley offer escape to lush greenspace, all of the urban amenities are also quite easily accessed from this location. Well-serviced by TTC, this area has both 24-hour bus service and access to the subway. Getting downtown is just as easy as escaping the city heading north. While boasting an excellent mid-town location Henry Farm offers the best of both city living and suburban escape. Within Henry Farm there are both townhouse and apartment rental options. The area immediately surrounding Henry Farm includes a lot of mid-sized apartment buildings. While the area appeals to all, from urbanites to families looking for a quiet community there really is something for everyone – even the Premier of Ontario!

When living together means living better

re you thinking about moving in together? This decision might be an opportunity to improve your financial situation by combining your income and expenses and doing some long-term planning. Advantages of a relationship

Being a couple is bound to have an impact on your income and expenses. Living under the same roof is much less expensive than living alone. You can save a great deal on the costs of electricity, heating, telephone, Internet, groceries and automobiles – not to mention, rent.

household expenses or to save money. You might also choose to keep a personal account for your other expenses. Whatever choices you make, you should agree on how your joint accounts are to be used, and the amounts you will each deposit in them. Also take the time to assess your banking habits and make sure that you have the bank accounts that meet your needs. It could help you save money.

Seek a balanced approach Once you have agreed on the lifestyle you would like to have, you can draw up your budget to obtain an overview of your total income, your essential and non-essential expenses and your ability to save. You may not particularly enjoy drawing up a budget, but simply setting objectives, such as purchasing a house or condo and saving for your children’s education if planning to have a family, will motivate you to draw up your budget and, more importantly, to stick to it.

Have a frank discussion Before you combine your finances, it is important to talk to your partner to get a better idea of your spending habits, income, debts and savings. Discuss the possibility of opening joint accounts (chequing or savings) to cover your essential

Code of Conduct guides actions through CERTIFIED RENTAL BUILDING PROGRAM B y Ted Whi T ehead

O

ne of the many benefits of choosing an apartment in a rental building that bears the Certified Rental Building Program (CRBP) distinction is knowing that the owners and/or property managers have agreed to conduct business according to a Member Code of Conduct. This brings great peace of mind to renters, and offers CRBP members a clear, concise reminder of what is expected of them once their buildings have been granted certification status. The CRBP is managed and operated by the Federation of Rental Housing Providers of Ontario (FRPO) with the goal of protecting the interests of all multi-residential apartment building stakeholders – and the Code of Conduct plays a major role in accomplishing that goal. What does it mean for renters? The key word in the Code of Conduct is “professionalism.” CRBP members agree to operate their buildings with high standards of integrity and honesty – and that goes for renters, suppliers, employees and contractors. Managers and owners must do their best to make sure the apartment building is safe and secure for everyone who lives and works there.

42G

Of course, members are required to comply with municipal, provincial and federal legislation and by-laws when it comes to the operation of residential buildings, and the Code of Conduct contains a reminder. There is also an item that covers the agreement to not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, colour, creed, gender, sexual orientation, family status, national origin, receipt of public assistance or source of income. Beyond this point, CRBP members agree to report to the Program’s administration any laws or policies that they may find unfair or prejudicial to renters or rental housing providers. Much of the Code of Conduct is based on the golden rule. For example, there is an item stipulating that members agree to treat their tenants with respect, and should expect to receive respect in return. All parties involved in a rental residence situation should know and uphold their responsibilities. If and when a dispute arises, the building owner or manager is expected to resolve it in good faith. Tenants should be aware that there is a mediation service offered by the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal for cases that are not resolved adequately between the parties at the building level. Fairness is the operating principle that members agree to pursue, along with avoidance of and protec-

tion against fraud, misrepresentation and unethical practices of any kind. Another aspect of the Code includes continual education, training and communication. Members agree to ongoing efforts to uphold and improve professional standards. This benefits everyone, from renters to managers, owners, and professional industry organizations. Fairness, conscientiousness, honesty, integrity, respect – these are the concepts that form the basis for the CRBP Code of Conduct. These are excellent values that should guide all business interactions, and in fact, life in general. The bottom line result for tenants is improved communication with their building manager and/or owner, as well as a better quality of life for all parties. A copy of the Program’s Code of Conduct is available by sending an email to info@crbprogram.com For more information visit crbprogram.org Ted Whitehead is Director of Certification, Certified Rental Building Program (CRBP), Federation of Rental-housing Providers of Ontario (FRPO).

quicktips

replace holiday stress with holiday joy by Hellen Buttigieg Holiday season strikes fear in tHe Hearts of

many. Instead of visions of sugar plums we get visions of mad mall dashes, credit card bills and lots of cleaning to do. Put years past behind you and make a few simple changes. These tips will help replace the holiday stress with holiday joy. avoid gifts that clutter: Give gifts that can be consumed rather than those which take up space. Consider giving candles, gourmet food baskets, vintage wines, fresh floral arrangements, jams and jellies, etc. Gift certificates are also appreciated by those who want to streamline their homes. Clear away the ‘every day’: For more impact and less clutter, remove your every day decorative items from tabletops and mantles before you display your holiday decorations. You can store them temporarily in the boxes that held your decorations. Help for the host: Hosting a holiday soirée this year? Don’t be a superhero – accept help. Make it a potluck. People enjoy contributing and it makes the meal more interesting. While you’re at it, consider putting your kids to work during the event or hiring students to help out. They can take coats as guests arrive, freshen up the appetizer plates and load the dishwasher. They’ll be learning valuable skills and perhaps making some extra money and you’ll be a more relaxed and joyful host! avoid mall madness: Do you get stressed when shopping for gifts at the mall this time of year? Do the long lineups and limited parking dampen your holiday spirit? If you hurry, there’s still time to shop online and have your items delivered in time. Many retailers offer free shipping or other incentives this time of year. Another option is to hire a personal shopper. Some major department stores actually offer this service at no cost, so ask. Make it meaningful: Connect to what the holidays are really all about – spending time and making special memories with the people you love. Make time for doing fun things together, like baking cookies, going downtown to see the holiday lights and festive store windows, renting a favourite family movie or going skating at the local rink. An effective way to make time for these activities is to let go of the need to create the perfect home, buy the perfect gifts, and cook the perfect holiday meal. Perfection is unattainable, no matter how organized and talented you are (especially this time of year).

Be an early bird: Wrap and ship your holiday gifts to out-of-town friends/family early to avoid rush postage costs and long lineups at the post office. track your spending: Consider paying by debit instead of credit when shopping for gifts to avoid the shock of your credit card statement in January. Another option is to put all your purchases on one credit card and only use that card for gift-buying; with most cards you can track your spending by viewing the balance online. Guilt-free Holidays: Take a day to catch up on unfinished business like filing, returning calls, etc. Most of these ‘loose ends’ take only a few minutes, but are put off because they don’t seem urgent. However, you still worry about getting them done, and it takes up space in your brain. Eliminate these energy leaks and you will be free to enjoy your holidays. Hire help if you need to. Under-decorate: If you find it overwhelming to decorate every room of your home for the holidays, consider a new approach. Decorate the one or two rooms you’ll use the most over the season and see how you feel. Chances are you and your family won’t miss the extra knick-knacks and you may even enjoy the holidays more because you’ll be less stressed. You will be especially appreciative when it comes time to take down the decorations and put them away. Pick a calendar that works: Invest time in choosing the right calendar system for you. Go to an office supply store and take a few minutes to look through the options. Are you a visual person who prefers a paper-based planner or a digital person who relates to an app or a computer program? Do you like a large desk blotter-type calendar or does a pocket-sized appointment book make more sense? Which format do you prefer: day-, week-, or month-at-aglance? Making the best decision for you now will pay off many times over the new year.

Decorating

your rental space Here are some tips for renters from rental guru Jodi Gilmour

When decorating small spaces, you don’t necessarily have to go with pint-sized furniture. Just pare down the number of pieces.

Make sure there’s balance and create interest by drawing the eye to varying levels throughout the space. Multi-purpose pieces go a long way.

One of the quickest ways to change the look of a rental, aside from paint, is to change the lighting. Invest in new light fixtures and take them with you when you leave.

When decorating on a budget, try to look at old items in a new way. A desk can become a buffet table, and who knows ,maybe an old door would make a great headboard!

Never underestimate the power of a coat of paint! Paint a tree stump in a bold hue to create a cool side table or stool.

Walk through a second-hand store with a mind to breathe new life into an old piece of furniture; try using two tones of your favourite colour.

To create a gallery wall you have to start with a commitment; your frames should either match, but vary in size or they can be mismatched but uniform in size. Oh, and make a choice; black and white or colour for the entire collection.

Collections are a starting point for your accent pieces and carry themes on in other ways. If you collect bird figurines, find a ‘birdie’ pillow to complete the look.

We improved a kitchen for a budding chef by capping inexpensive bookshelves with a slab of granite we found in the sale section at one of our suppliers. Instant island! Widely recognized for her professionalism, resources, and winning charm, Jodi helped many into new rentals when she hosted HGTV’s hit series For Rent. She was also a featured contributor on Marriage Under Construction. Her experience managing one of Canada’s largest and most successful RE/MAX franchises sets her apart from the competition. Jodi’s says she’s committed to improving their quality of life.

How to sweeten up

a holiday cookie exchange

D

elicious baked treats and holiday gatherings go hand-in-hand. A cookie exchange â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where everyone brings a baked treat to share â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can be the perfect way to enjoy a wide variety of homemade treats without having to make them all yourself. It also introduces even the most experienced bakers to great new recipes. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, baking for a cookie exchange engages everyone from grandmothers to the kids, especially when the roles of chief taste-tester and decorator come up. So this year, why not put a twist on your traditional cookie exchange? Here are just a few new tips to make this holiday event that much sweeter: t&ODPVSBHFZPVSGBNJMZUPCBLFUPHFUIFSo#BLJOH for a cookie exchange is an activity you can share and enjoy with the whole family. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as simple as booking an hour in your schedule and preparing for the fun. According to the baking experts at Robin Hood, the key to a great family baking activity is choosing a recipe that everyone will enjoy making together. t#BLFTPNFUIJOHEJGGFSFOUo0QUUPCBLFB delicious square or another bite-size dessert instead of a cookie. A unique melt-in-your mouth recipe, like Sweet and Salty Chocolate Caramel Squares, is sure to be a new treat that will be an instant crowd-pleaser. t(FUDIJMESFOJOWPMWFEJOUIFQSFQBSBUJPOo/P cookie exchange is complete without decorative boxes to take home everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delicious treats. During the get-together, get the kids to decorate cardboard bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boxes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how creative they can get with holiday wrapping paper and ribbon. The best part is that everyone will receive a one-of-a-kind cookie box. t$BQUVSFUIFNFNPSJFTJOBGVOXBZo,JETXJMM love taking photos of all the treats. These can double as holiday greeting cards or better yet, be a perfect scrapbooking activity. Just download or print off the photos and let the children create their very own picture album of the experience.

HI-TECH COMBO-ALARM sounds for smoke and gas leaks

W

hile your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms silently go about their business day-in and day-out – unless there is danger – the company that sells the most of these life-saving devices in Canada is busy finding ways to make them better and last longer.

Market leader Kidde says it has recently introduced two advanced combination smoke and CO alarms that are Canadian firsts. These new “intelligent” combo alarms react more quickly to real fires while at the same time are better able to differentiate between false alarms and the real thing. One unit is battery powered, while the other is hardwired with a battery back up in case of a power outage. They take direct aim at a major consumer complaint of all alarms – that they go off too easily if you burn the toast or the turkey. For carbon monoxide alarms, consumers often find it confusing that they need to be replaced every seven years while smoke alarms need replacing every 10 years. So in both these new Kidde combination alarms, the smoke and carbon monoxide sensors feature the same 10-year lifespan and 10year warranty. “Innovations that make alarms smarter and last over 40 per cent longer are an industry breakthrough,” says Carol Heller, a home safety specialist at Kidde. “We have been protecting Canadian families since 1917 and with technology advancements such as these we will continue to do so.” More information and fire safety tips are available online at www.kiddecanada.com and www.safeathome.ca.

How to create

the perfect cheese platter

A

creative cheese plate is a crowd-pleaser during the holidays and better still, it is simple to prepare and it doesn’t take up any space in your oven.

These steps will help you create the perfect cheese platter to surprise your guests with tempting varieties and new taste experiences: Get creative with the platter. A party plate is fine, but you might also use a wooden board, a slab of marble, or a piece of slate. Choose a variety of cheeses including a soft-ripened cheese, or ‘bloomy rinds’ as they’re also known. Then, add a semi-soft cheese, like gouda or havarti. You’ll also need hard/firm cheeses like manchego or

pecorino. And for more tangy option add a goat’s milk cheese. Round out the spectrum of flavours with a washed rind cheese and a blue cheese. Get your quantities right. For a party platter, appetizer or dessert cheese plate, serve a small crowd three to five types of cheese and five to 10 types for a larger crowd. Calculate for approximately 30 to 40g of each cheese per person. To ensure variety, try mini versions of some crowdpleasing favourites, such as the new PC Mini Brie Hors D’oeuvres and enhance with toppers, such as red pepper jelly, pesto or sliced peaches. Don’t forget the accompaniments. Fruits like fig, pear and apple are always enjoyable, but dried fruits work well too. Add unsalted roasted nuts and fresh bread and complete your platter with honey, fruit compotes and pickled vegetables. Serve with care. Always prepare your platter in advance, lay out appropriate knives and let your cheese sit at room temperature for at least one hour before serving. More recipe ideas are available online at pc.ca.

What to look for in an apartment BY JANE HERMAN

A

re you feeling a little overwhelmed by the challenge of trying to find an apartment? Even wading through all of the ads and listings in Renters Guide can be daunting, unless you understand how they are organized. But where do you start? The first criteria in your decision should be price: How much can you realistically afford to spend per month? Most financial planners recommend that your rent (not including extras such as parking, hydro, cable, etc.) should amount to less than 30 per cent of your monthly income. This may be hard to achieve, but thinking about how much you can spend on rent will also help you to set up a budget. Include all expenses you’ll be responsible for each month (food, utilities, telephone, transportation, laundry, parking, etc.) and other, annual or variable expenses, such as clothing, moving expenses, renter’s insurance, savings, recreation, entertainment, etc. The more you spend on rent, the less you’ll have available for other things. Next, determine what area you want to live in. How will you determine where to look? If you are new to the area, you may want to live near friends or relatives, within a certain commuting radius of work or school. If you have children, do you want to live in a particular school district? Are parks and play areas nearby? Is proximity to the transit or a major highway may be a priority Is the area convenient to shopping, library, recreation facilities, entertainment, restaurants, etc. What are the traffic patterns in the neighbourhood? How is the traffic at rush hour? How are the noise levels in the area at different times of the day, and would this be a factor in your decision? With these factors in mind, make a list of several different neighbourhoods in which you could look: Area 1: ________________________ Area 2: ________________________ Area 3: ________________________ Type of accommodation: Many apartments are in highrises. A highrise building is one that is six or more storeys, has elevators, security, laundry

facilities, and, frequently, sports and/or recreation facilities and other amenities, as well as efficient electrical, heating and plumbing systems. A walk-up or low-rise would be less than five storeys high, may have no elevator and few conveniences. However, the rent would generally be less at this type of apartment than at a highrise building in the same area. Other kinds of apartments you could rent include: A basement apartment is a basement in a house that has been converted to an apartment. It may have a separate entrance. The apartment may have its own bathroom, kitchen, laundry room and heating system, or it may share those amenities with the rest of the home. A low rise apartment building may also have basement apartments. A duplex, triplex or fourplex is a group of two, three or four apartments together in the same building. Apartment Features Search through the Renters Guide listings to find those that match your criteria. They are organized by area. You should also use Renters Guide companion website, hometrader.ca. It is an excellent source of apartment listings, also organized by area. You can also find potential apartments by walking around or driving through the area you have chosen, or through word of mouth. If a friend or relative is happy living in a particular building, chances are you will be too. When you go to look at apartments, inspect them thoroughly before you sign the lease or give a first month’s rental deposit. Some landlords have a condition checklist on which to record details upon move in and move out. Be sure to inspect walls, floors, bathroom and kitchen faucets and fixtures, appliances, windows, doors, etc. Make sure you note such things as the condition of the property and the building. Note the size and location of the closets. You may want to take along a tape measure to see how your furniture might work in the space. If you go through the process carefully, chances are you’ll be more satisfied with your decision after you move in.

Rental Agreements L]ViNdjH]djaY@cdl 7Z[dgZndjH^\cVAZVhZ

W

hen you rent a home or apartment in Canada, the landlord will usually ask you to sign a written rental agreement. This legal contract is also often called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lease.â&#x20AC;?

Under the laws of each province and territory, tenants and landlords have certain rights and responsibilities whether they have a written agreement or not. Nevertheless, a written lease agreement can help spell out all the terms you and your landlord want to have covered and agreed to. You may also wish to seek legal advice before accepting the terms. To help you know what to expect, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) offers the following list of terms that can be found in most rental agreements: t5IFOBNFTPGUIFMBOEMPSEBOE UFOBOU T  t5IFBEESFTTPGUIFIPNFPS BQBSUNFOUZPVBSFSFOUJOH t5IFNPOUIMZSFOUZPVBHSFFEUPQBZ  XJUIPSXJUIPVUVUJMJUJFT QBSLJOH  DBCMFUFMFWJTJPOPSPUIFSTFSWJDFT t5IFEBUFXIFOUIFSFOUJTEVF GPSFYBNQMF POUIFmSTUEBZPGFBDI NPOUI  t5IFBNPVOUBOEUFSNTPGBOZSFOU  TFDVSJUZPSEBNBHFEFQPTJUTZPV BHSFFEUPQBZ

Packing Tips and List I^ehidbV`ZndjgbdkZVa^iiaZZVh^Zg# PACKING TIPS

P P

Gather boxes in all sizes from friends, neighbors, and stores.

P

Create a “portable packing kit” with marking pens, a tape measure, packing tape, twine, and scissors. Carry it with you as you pack up items around your home.

P P P P P P P P P

Reinforce the bottom of boxes with extra tape for added strength.

P

Don’t move flammable, combustible, corrosive, or explosive items such as paint, gasoline, and ammunition.

P

Pack a bag of personal items you’ll need during the move (change of clothes, toiletries, medicine, maps, food, and drinks). Keep it in an easy-to-find place when you pack

Collect cushioning material such as bubble wrap, foam pellets, furniture pads, old blankets, plastic bags, tissue paper, newspapers, and small towels to use as padding inside boxes.

Label each box with the name of the room in your new home where it should be placed. List the contents of the box on the side of it. Number the boxes and keep a list of which boxes go in which room in your new home. Label boxes containing fragile items with large red lettering. Place china in plastic bags and stack plates upright on their sides, not flat. Pack your TV, stereo, and computer in their original boxes whenever possible. Keep boxes to 50 pounds or less. Pack heavy items into their own smaller boxes and place lighter items together into larger boxes. (Hint-Don’t pack all your books into one box!)

GENERAL MOVING TIPS

P Disconnect and bundle cords on television and stereo components. Label each cord with masking tape and a description of where to connect it.

P Plan and measure where you furniture will be placed in your new home. It’s helpful to draw a layout of your new home and sketch in the major furniture pieces.

P To save time on moving day, move your boxes from the basement, upstairs, or attic to the main floor prior to the move date. Consider carrying items from the back yard to the front yard or garage ahead of time.

P Keep your phone connected through moving day to stay in touch with friends, family and the moving company.

EVEN ONE ITEM WILL GO A LONG WAY

at the food bank

H

unger continues to affect many Canadians. According to Food Banks Canada, more than 900,000 people use food banks every month, 360,000 of which are children. This holiday season, why not donate your local food bank’s most needed items?

“No child should have to go to bed hungry,” says Katharine Schmidt, the executive director of Food Banks Canada. “You can make a difference for a child in need by donating nutritious and kid-friendly foods to your local food bank.”

The most needed items, she says, include peanut butter or nuts, baby food and formula, canned fruits and vegetables, and canned fish, meat or lentils. Whole grain cereals and packaged, powdered or canned milk are also good choices. At places carrying President’s Choice products look for the Extra Helping logo on shelf tags as it identifies the food bank’s most needed items. “We are committed to fighting hunger in Canada and we want to make it easy for our customers to donate,” says Peggy Hornell, the senior director of community investment for Loblaw Companies Limited. “During the food drive, we’ve introduced the $5 Macaroni and Cheese Dinner program for this purpose.” Hornell says when customers purchase the $5 box, they are donating $4 worth of food items, and a $1 cash donation. All they need to do is pick up the box while grocery shopping pay for it when they check out and drop it in the donation bin on their way out to know that they are helping families in need. The Extra Helping National Holiday Food Drive runs between November 23 – December 13, 2012. NC

TOP GIFT IDEAS

remain hot through the decade Tech: toThe iPhone 5 and iPhone4S from Apple, along with the Samsung Galaxy III and Galaxy II are sure to be on many wish lists this year. to The Motorola i95 flip phone was the top-selling cell phone – that’s before smartphones became all the rage…remember those tiny screens? Gaming: to This year the heavy hitters are expected to be Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Halo 4, Assassin’s Creed III and New Super Mario Bros 2 consoles and video games. The WII Nu will also be a popular gift.

Each year Canadians are after that must-have gift to complete their holiday lists. Whether it’s a toy for a child or a new gadget for a big kid, there are always a few items everyone is after. This year is no different, and eBay Canada says it has a good idea of what’s going to be at the top of everyone’s list this season. “Working with trend experts and our sellers, we get a sneak peak into the season’s must-haves and biggest bets,” says eBay country manager, Andrea Stairs. “Before the holiday season even begins, we know which gifts will hit the top of any wish list.” Here are some of this year’s must-have items, along with a fun, retrospective look into the eBay vault to compare the hot items of 2012 with those from a decade ago:

to Grand Theft Auto Vice City for PS2 was a favourite buy, along with Yoshi’s Island Super Mario 3 (Gameboy Advance) and Perfect Dark (N64). While popular game themes have remained consistent through the years, the graphics have certainly evolved. Toys: to A few items are predicted to be hot sellers. For girls, the FAO Schwarz 150th Anniversary Madame Alexander Wendy doll and newer Lalaloopsy dolls are expected to be popular. For boys, with the release of blockbuster movies like Batman and the Avengers, action figures from those films will likely be making their way into stockings across the country. to The most popular action figure and character toys were Storm Jet from Transformers and a talking Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story 2, both of which are now ‘classics’ and also available on eBay.

quicktips

Choosing “the one” Run your fingers along the needles and to give the tree a shake. If the tree is fresh, the needles should be pliable and few should fall off. Make sure the trunk of the tree is straight and at least six inches long so it will fit easily into a tree stand. A tip would be to measure your tree stand ahead of time to determine the maximum trunk size it can accommodate. As well, make sure to measure the ceiling height at your home before buying the tree. Trim time Once you have the tree at home, cut about one-quarter inch off the bottom so that it can absorb water more easily, which is crucial to its survival. When purchasing it, ask a Home Depot associate to do this for you. Once home, place your tree upright in the tree stand, unwrap and prune branches as needed. Even if you don’t want to prune the entire tree, you should always trim the lower branches to make for easier access underneath.

Make your FRESH-CUT TREE last longer BRINGING A FRESH-CUT TREE INTO YOUR HOME IS A GREAT WAY TO GET INTO THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT. There is just something about the way it smells that brings a smile to faces young and old. To keep your tree healthy and green for as long as possible, take a look at these tips from The Home Depot Canada:

Make decorating a family affair When decorating the tree, try choosing a colour scheme that matches your home’s décor. If you prefer a classic look you may opt for traditional colour accents. However if your home is more eclectic try a modern mix. The Martha Stewart Living holiday collections have beautiful ornaments in all colours and sizes including ‘Celebrate’ (gold and brown), ‘Arctic’ (blue and silver), and ‘Winterberry’ (red, green and gold). Having a complementary colour scheme makes decorating easy. By following these simple tips, not only can you be sure to pick an attractive tree, but you can also keep it fresh for three to four weeks in your home. More information about decorating can be found online at www.homedepot.ca or at a store location in your neighbourhood. NC

THE INS AND OUTS

of Subletting BY JANE HERMAN

L

ife happens. Plans change. Sometimes an opportunity comes knocking – one that you can’t turn down. One that will take you away from home for an extended but not permanent stay. On first glance the options can seem like a rock and a hard place have come to visit with your lucky happenstance. Either give up your home and pack it all into storage while you go away, and then face finding a new place when you return, or pay rent for an apartment to sit empty while you are gone. The former is a lot of upheaval, especially tricky if you are under lease and are obligated for many more months. The later seems like a huge waste of money, and may not make sense or even be feasible financially.


renters’help

Subletting may be an ideal option. Just as you may need to leave temporarily, there are plenty of people that need a shortterm place to stay. Whether they’re moving here and need a landing spot until they find more permanent accommodations, are renovating and need to vacate their homes for a limited period of time, or are just here, as in your situation, for an extended but not permanent stay, it’s just a matter of finding someone with comparable needs and making arrangements for them to live in your apartment and take over the financial responsibilities. While it can be a great arrangement, technically, you continue to be responsible for your lease even if you are not living in the apartment. Subletting has a legal aspect to it. Subletting means that a tenant moves out of his or her unit for a specific period of time, but plans to move back into the unit before the end of the tenancy. The person who moves into the unit is known as a “subtenant.”The subtenant is responsible for paying the rent to the original tenant who continues to pay rent directly to the landlord, and is responsible for complying with everything in the lease. If you’re planning to leave your unit for an extended period of time but want to return to it, you must ask your landlord’s permission to sublet the unit. You must inform the landlord when you are leaving and when you will be returning. Your landlord cannot refuse the idea of subletting a unit, but they can refuse a specific person if they believe the person is unsuitable. If you need or want to sublet your apartment, you, and not your landlord, are responsible for finding someone to pay your rent while you are temporarily away. It’s best to advise your landlord of your intentions, and provide all necessary details such as the subtenant’s name, phone number, place of employment, etc. The landlord may need to contact the subtenant and/or enter the apartment in case of an emergency. Subletting is often confused with “Assigning a Unit.” Assigning a Unit means that the tenant moves out of the unit permanently and transfers their lease to another person. All aspects of the lease stay the same for the replacement tenant. This is the option that you may choose if you have an opportunity that will take you away from your apartment permanently, but you are still under obligation to your landlord for the remaining duration of your lease. What if you receive a job offer in another city, or you have to leave your job to care for a sick parent or child on the other side of the country and have to suddenly give up your apartment and end your lease early. If such circumstances do arise, it would be best to notify your landlord as soon as possible. They may have someone who could be looking for an apartment in the building and would be able to take over your apartment. If not, the situation is similar to a sublet: you would have to get the landlord’s permission to Assign the tenancy, and it would

be your responsibility to try to find someone to take over the lease. You are responsible for paying your rent and maintaining your commitment to your landlord until a suitable tenant to replace you has been found. The landlord has the right to refuse to let this person become a new tenant, but must have a good reason for doing so. It’s possible that the landlord might refuse the idea of the Assignment or might not respond to your request to do so. If your get a refusal or no answer within seven days of your request, you are then permitted, under the Residential Tenancies Act, to give your notice of termination with an N9 Form instead of assigning your lease, and do not have to fulfill the remainder of your lease term. Your landlord may simply prefer to start a fresh lease with a new applicant instead. For further details of the intricacies of subletting or assigning, and what obligations you have and what actions both you and your landlord can take visit the Landlord and Tenant Board website (www.ltb.gov.on.ca).

ncluding fresh mushrooms is a great way to add some tasty nutrients to your holiday meals. One hundred grams (100 g) of fresh mushrooms counts as 1 serving of Fruits & Vegetables. Mushrooms are also low in calories, carbs and fat, they provide vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants, and are the only vegetable with Vitamin D. In addition, they have no cholesterol or sodium and are available fresh from the farm, year round.

These warm mushroom dishes are simple to prepare ahead of time so you have more time to visit with friends and family. Savoury Mushroom Crostini An easy and delicious appetizer that’s ready in minutes. In a hot pan sauté 1 tbsp minced shallots, 1 tbsp minced garlic, 1 tsp minced thyme, 1 tsp minced basil and 1 cup fresh sliced assorted mushrooms for about 4-5 minutes. Add 1 tbsp brandy to pan and flambé. Stir in 2 tbsp chevre (goat cheese) until melted. Serve on lightly toasted baguettes or melba rounds. Mushroom Scalloped Potatoes When everyone comes together, serve a family favourite at the dinner table. The rich full-bodied flavour and texture of sautéed mushrooms and green onions add pizzazz to this “never fail” version of the classic. Combine cooked mushroom and onion mixture with milk, cream cheese, nutmeg, salt and pepper, sprinkle with cheese and breadcrumbs and bake for 25 minutes. Precooked potatoes shorten the cooking time. Baked Mushroom Topped Brie During the holiday season, who knows when guests may arrive? Prepare and chill the mushroom topping to have on hand for spur of the moment entertaining. At serving time, spoon the topping over the brie wheel and bake until the cheese begins to melt. Baking and serving on an oven-proof platter keeps the cheese warm while eating.

BOXING IT ALL UP without the headaches By Dan Hopkins

I

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no big secret moving can be stressful â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from broken dishes to lost items. But there are a few things you can do to make the whole process a little easier on the nerves.

Start by planning your moving day well in advance. Once you select your moving company, book your reservations two to four weeks before your scheduled move day to guarantee availability. Next, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to roll up those sleeves and begin boxing up your household or office space. Choosing boxes to do this may not be as much of a nobrainer as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d presume: t #PYFTPGCPPLTHFUIFBWZGBTUTPFOTVSFUPVTFPOMZTNBMM CPYFTXIFOJUDPNFTUPUIFTFJUFNT"QQMZUIJTHFOFSBMSVMFUP FWFSZUIJOHZPVSFQBDLJOHUIFIFBWJFSUIFJUFN UIFTNBMMFSUIF CPY t &NQUZJOHUIFDMPTFUDBOCFBOPSHBOJ[JOHOJHIUNBSF6TF TQFDJmDXBSESPCFCPYFTUPTJNQMJGZUIFQSPDFTT5PTBWF TQBDF DMPUIFTJOESBXFSTDBOCFQBDLFEJOUPTVJUDBTFT t "TUFNQUJOHBTJUNBZCFUPQJDLVQVTFEDBSECPBSECPYFT GSPNUIFHSPDFSZTUPSF EPOU:PVOFWFSLOPXXIBUMJUUMFDSJUUFS JTIJEJOHJOUIFDPSOFSPGGPPECPYFToPSJGUIFCPYXJMMCF TUSPOHFOPVHIUPTVQQPSUZPVSQPTTFTTJPOT*OGBDU EPOUVTF VTFECPYFTJOHFOFSBMZPVEPOULOPXIPXNVDIXFJHIUUIFZ DBOIBOEMFPSIPXNVDIXFJHIUUIFZWFBMSFBEZIBOEMFE.

Assign boxes to specific rooms. Avoid mixing items from different rooms in the same box â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it can make for a frustrating unpacking process or a wild goose-chase if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for kitchen utensils in the living room box. Keep a record of what goes into which box so you can find what you need instantly. When it comes to large appliances, take a peek at the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manuals to see if there are special instructions for moving. Packing breakables requires the upmost care. Always stack dishes upwards and never use newsprint to wrap fine china as it can be messy to clean. Instead, choose protective packing paper or bubble wrap. With these tips and a few deep breaths, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re well on your way to a smooth-sailing move.

quicktips

Create the perfect

MASTER SUITE

retreat

To achieve a charming appearance with soft comforts, start by styling the room with fixtures and accessories that exude a clean style, like the Voss collection from Moen. Voss delivers uncomplicated glamour throughout the entire bath. With a full range of bath fixtures, including rain showers, faucets and coordinated accessories, your master bath can be transformed into a personal sanctuary that will last for years to come.

The master bedroom is the ideal place to take refuge from reality – and when it comes to creating the perfect bedroom and bath, casual and comfortable retreats are more appealing than formal, showroom-like spaces. But, blissful hideaways are not limited to only one style and feel. Here are some ideas and inspiration to create a serene master suite, no matter what your definition of relaxing may be. Bathing Bliss Before choosing a theme or colour palette for the bedroom, focus your attention on the bathroom first. This functional room deserves to be updated with elegant and understated features in order to create a haven from the stresses of everyday life. After all, a true master suite escape has the ideal spa-inspired bathroom.

Cozy Country Flair An uncluttered room with rustic décor pieces is sure to create a relaxing environment away from the hectic world outside. The simple aesthetics of an English country look accomplish this desired feeling by mixing patterns and décor elements comfortably and with a bit of flair. To create this look, start with a simple colour palette – such as blue and white or pink and brown. Patterned wallpaper, borders and curtains in floral or plaid prints are a great way to evoke that welcoming, country feeling. And keep your eyes open for one-of-a-kind antiques and wood furniture to accent your country retreat. A perfect – and often inexpensive – place to start is your local antique store, flea market, or even yard sales. After all, one person’s trash is another person’s vintage treasure. Coastal Contemporary There’s a reason why tropical beaches are considered the fundamental escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The rush of the ocean and the feel of sand between your toes can bring anyone a lasting sense of tranquility. For this laid-back theme, use an upholstered headboard in a soft blue pattern to highlight the focal point of the room – the bed. Use whimsical décor pieces such as glass bedside lamps and palm plants throughout the rest of the room to complete the theme. Whether your style is more classic, country or coastal – or perhaps a combination – you can create a dream master suite retreat that fits your own personal style. More information is available online at www.moen.ca. NC

Make your babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

FIRST HOLIDAY SEASON MAGICAL New parents, grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles often worry about making babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first holiday season special. Finding the perfect gift that fits all the criteria â&#x20AC;&#x201C; safe, educational, convenient and fun â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is often difficult and certainly confusing.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many gift options for new babies,â&#x20AC;? says Cedric Canu, father of two boys and the divisional merchandise manager for The Babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Room and Toys at Sears Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our baby-trained associates are well-versed in every aspect of every product we sell, which gives parents and gift givers the confidence they need when shopping for a new baby. After all, who needs any more stress at this time of year?â&#x20AC;? For example, baby will have the best seat in the house from which to view the festivities in the Fisher Price newborn-to-toddler portable rocker. The seat hosts an interactive play set for your newborn to stay safe and busy so you can be hands-free to cook your famous turkey or wrap your carefully selected gifts.

Some of the other best products for your new baby include: t-PWF/$VEEMFTWFMPVSPSNJDSPGMFFDFIPMJEBZTMFFQFST t5XJMJHIU5VSUMF XIJDIUVSOTCFEUJNFJOUPBTUBSSZTLZFYQFSJFODF tUIF#PPO'SPH1PEGPSNBLJOHCBUIUJNFBOEDMFBOVQGVOJOPOFTDPPQ t'JTIFS1SJDF%JTOFZ#BCZ4JOH"MPOH$IPP$IPP GFBUVSJOHGBWPVSJUF %JTOFZDIBSBDUFST t'JTIFS1SJDF4UBOE6Q#BMMDBOPQMBZTFUUIBUFODPVSBHFTQVMMJOHVQBOE TUBOEJOHTLJMMT t-JUUMF5JLFT"DUJWJUZ(BSEFOQMBZHZN XIJDIDIBOHFTBTCBCZHSPXTUPLFFQ FOUFSUBJOJOHBOE t"MFY+S.BYWJMMF"DUJWJUZ$VCFUPUFBDINPUPSTLJMMTBOEDPHOJUJWFTLJMMT â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether purchasing apparel or footwear for your newest addition, if you shop at Sears,â&#x20AC;? says Canu, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Kidvantage Lifetime Wear-Out Warranty will cover you for as long as a child in your family can wear the item.

HOW TO AWAKEN the entrepreneurial spirit in our children

E

ntrepreneurship is one of Canada’s greatest strengths. Parents can help accelerate the growth of young people by providing them with the experience and expertise needed to become successful entrepreneurs – and business leaders can help with specialized and focussed attention. For example, through Junior Achievement activities, such as Company Program, students are developing the core business skills necessary to become successful and creative leaders of tomorrow. The organization’s programs enable a better understanding of the role small business plays in Canada, and of the positive impact entrepreneurship has on communities.

“Junior Achievement provided me with the tools and skills needed to focus on who I want to be,” said Mansoor Hassan, a previous Junior Achievement student. “The Company Program allows you gain self-confidence, learn leadership skills and make mistakes. This is a foundation of skills that I will take with me no matter what career or industry, I am in.” Young entrepreneurs must have a high level of passion, commitment, curiosity and self-confidence. They must embrace innovative and creative thinking, and thrive in a dynamic and ever-changing world. In addition, in order to be successful, they need a foundation of knowledge about money management, the role of business in our society and the important role technology plays. The entrepreneurial spirit must be supported to fully bring it to life. Junior Achievement helps to cultivate the entrepreneurial spirit. A recent independent Boston Consulting Group study completed to assess the impact of Junior Achievement’s mission showed that 70% of achievers indicate that participation in a Junior Achievement of Canada program had a significant impact on their desire to be an entrepreneur. It also showed that Junior Achievers are 50% more likely

to open their own business which leads to innovation, new jobs, and wealth creation. In fact, alumni launch 6,500 companies a year, at a rate 50 per cent higher than the Canadian average. With their parent’s direction, support and optimism, youth can experience the power of entrepreneurship. Does your child have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur? Check yes to all of the following characteristics that your child has. (

) Perseverance

(

) Innovative thinking

(

) Self-confidence

(

) Action-oriented

(

) Excellent communication skills

(

) Specific knowledge about their potential business

If you answered yes to three more entrepreneurial characteristics, your child may be an entrepreneur in the making. More information on entrepreneurship is available online at www.jacan.org. NC

BABY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE!

The leaves are gone, the temperature has dropped and Jack Frost has begun nipping at your nose; the good news is that it can only mean one thing — Christmas, Chanukah, Christmaka and/or Kwanza are just around the corner. Regardless of which holiday you celebrate there’s one thing for certain; it’s time to start decorating.

decorating BEYOND THE

tree by 2?60. 429:.;


If you’re one of the lucky ones who has a large mantle, do not forget to adorn that fireplace with colour, texture and elegance. Typically, when you think of decorating for the holidays it’s all about the tree but I say the tree is just the first step. It may even be your source of inspiration but it doesn’t have to end there. Think ornaments are just for hanging? Think again. With the dynamic colour and style options now available you can decorate every nook in your home, well, maybe not every single one. The assortment and price range varies dramatically from luxury pieces at Teatro Verde to budget-friendly options at HomeSense, Bouclair and even Home Depot featuring the Martha Stewart Collection, so this year there really is no excuse. It’s not where you put these ornaments, it’s how you place them. Be mindful of consistency and harmony. I love the idea of using multiple layers of colour and filling clear vases to spread across your table as décor. The tables in your home are really the best place to start your decorating frenzy. We always like to draw inspiration from fabrics, so we recommend starting with your tablecloth. For a really unique setting I like to have our clients’ covers custom-made to order. Don’t let the word “custom” fool you. Depending on the size of your table, you probably won’t need more than two yards of fabric and a seamstress to sew the edges. You can invest in small unique items and give your space a real holiday presence. If you’re one of the lucky ones who has a large mantle, do not forget to adorn that fireplace with colour, texture and elegance. Instead of the traditional evergreen, try a homemade wreath of feathers for a glamorous look or rustic branches in an urban setting. Start with a circular piece of florist’s foam, and then use wooden florist’s picks to secure large items and wrap the object around as much as desired. And there you have yourself an easy DIY project that will reinforce the look you are trying to achieve. If you’re hosting an elegant soirée, dim the lights and illuminate the room with candles and allow the mood to develop through nightfall. It’s so simple to work with items you already own, it just takes a little creativity and perhaps a second opinion. Set the table with your favourite accessories and layer sections with different finishes for a look that suggests you’ve been collecting pieces over time. For an otherwise crisp and modern approach, my preferred table accessory is a serving tray. In lieu of a placemat or traditional charge plate the tray comes in small, large, matte and lacquered finishes — it will make your décor seem flawless.

For me, it’s always the details that truly elevate the décor. There are so many easy ways to embrace the holiday spirit and enhance the beauty in your home. From small, subtle design touches to large over-the-top custom pieces, the possibilities are endless. Enjoy the season and just remember — decorating your home for the holidays far exceeds dressing up just the traditional tree.

FINANCIAL QUICK TIPS:

How to get smarter ABOUT MONEY

I

nvestor Education Fund (IEF), a Canadian non-profit organization dedicated to financial literacy and education, has developed three tips based on the most common issues: Is it best to renew a mortgage or get a new one? Shop around. When looking at interest rates, keep in mind that the difference between a rate of 3.5 per cent and 3.6 per cent can translate into thousands of dollars over the life of your mortgage. Use the mortgage calculator at www. GetSmarterAboutMoney.ca to see how much you can save with different mortgage options. Is it best to pay down debt or invest? Let the interest rate decide. When deciding whether to invest your money or use it to pay down debt, look at the interest rate youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re paying on your debt and compare it to how much you would generate from the potential investment. The pay down debt or invest calculator on www. GetSmarterAboutMoney.ca can help you figure it out.

Is it too late to save? Time is on your side. Thanks to the power of compound interest, even small savings can add up to a huge amount over time. For example, if you save $1,200 a year (or $100 a month) at an interest rate of four per cent starting at age 25, by age 60, your savings will have grown to $91,917.98. If you save the same amount at the same interest rate but start at age 35, by age 60, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have only $51,974.09. The compound interest calculator at GetSmarterAboutMoney.ca will show you how your savings can grow over time. NC
