Snow Plow or Electric Snow Shovel

Snow Plow or Electric Snow Shovel

Do You Shovel the Snow in Your Driveway?

Electric Snow ShovelIf you live in a climate that has all four seasons like I do, or even a climate that just has one and that one is winter, you spend a lot of time shoveling snow from your driveway and sidewalks every winter season.  Shoveling snow can be back breaking, exhausting work, and when the snow falls, it can fall for days, sometimes weeks on end, making snow removal very tiresome.

To make the task of shoveling snow easier, you can hire a snow plow service, but that can be expensive.  For moderate levels of snow, a snow blower or electric snow shovel are good options to clear your own driveway of snow, especially if your driveway is not too long.  Or you can buy a snow plow attachment for your own vehicle and clear your own driveway of snow, and even make some money by plowing the snow for your neighbors.

Whatever you plan to do to shovel snow, take care not to over extend yourself shoveling snow.  People die every year because they are not used to the level of exercise that is needed when shoveling a driveway with a manual shovel.

Electric Snow Shovels

Electric snow shovels are a good tool to have on hand for moderate snowfalls.  Electric snow shovels throw the snow, allowing you to clear your walkway, sidewalks, and driveway in a much faster amount of time than a manual shovel.  Electric snow shovels are small, so they are good for smaller spaces, and areas that you need to turn around quickly to clear the snow out.

Electric snow shovels do not take a lot of storage space, not too much more than a traditional snow shovel making them a good tool for cottages, condominiums, and apartments.

Snow Blowers Move More Snow

Snow blowers clear a wider and larger area more quickly of snow than an electric snow shovel.  A snow blower blows the cleared snow through a shoot further than most electric snow shovels, and works better in situations where you have a heavy snowfall.

Snow blowers also handle well in a driveway that already has snow piled up from previous snow plowing or blowing and will continue to clear the area of snow and pile it up on top of the previous piles.

Snow blowers do need more storage space than an electric snow shovel, so they are best if you have a shed or garage to put your show blower in.

Plowing the Snow Yourself

The easiest way to clear your driveway quickly is with a snow plow.  Snow plows work best in areas that get regular heavy snowfalls each winter for an extended period of time.  You can buy a plow attachment for your vehicle, or you can hire a snow plow service.

If you buy a snow plow attachment for your own truck or vehicle, practice driving it in a parking lot where there is a lot of room before you go in and out of narrow driveways.  No need to plow right into your own or neighbor's house.

Especially if you live on a farm, or in a rural area, a snow plow or a combination snow plow and another shovel are your best bet.  Snow plows, snow blowers and snow shovels can be purchased on eBay both new and used from reliable eBay sellers.  You can get parts for your snow plow also.  eBay sellers are rated by how many sales they have had and their feedback, so you can check other people's experience before you buy on eBay.

You may find that a seller is right in your local area, and you can pick up the snow plow right from their store.

As to shoveling your own driveway by hand, I recommend saving the manual shovel for small jobs like clearing your front steps, and leaving the big jobs to your electric snow machines.

Double Gas Ovens Can Be Built In or Freestanding

Although double gas ovens are fairly new to household use, they have been used in commercial settings for years. Double gas ovens can be freestanding units or built in units like regular gas ovens, and if you have a space issue in your kitchen, a built in double gas oven can be a wise choice.

Double gas ovens are available in stainless steel, white or black as standard colors for most companies, and may be ordered in custom colors. Many reputable companies make double gas ovens for the home, including Maytag, Jenn Air, Frigidaire, and GE. Double gas stoves come in varying sizes anywhere from 24 inch to 48 inch, so measure your kitchen space carefully as you consider the best fit.

Baking in a Double Gas Oven

You can purchase a regular double gas oven or a convection double gas oven, both great options for avid bakers. You can preheat one oven while the other is baking, or start your supper cooking, without disturbing your cake that is baking.

You can also do different stages of a recipe in each oven. For instance, bake your biscotti in loaf form in one oven, then have the second oven ready for the biscotti slices to bake at a different temperature. No waiting for the oven to change temperatures.

Cleaning a Double Gas Oven

Cleaning a double gas oven is no more difficult than cleaning a standard oven. Stove tops can be cleaned with the appropriate cleaner for that surface, and many of the ovens are self-cleaning.

In most double gas ovens, the racks on the top and bottom ovens are interchangeable, so you have more flexibility in shelf heights.

Frigidaire Gas Double Ovens

No items matching the keyword phrase "Frigidaire Gas Double Ovens" were found. This could be due to the keyword phrase used, or could mean your server is unable to communicate with Ebays RSS2 Server.

Oven Burners on Double Gas Ovens

The number of burners on the stovetop of a double gas oven will vary depending on size of the gas range top and the other features the stove may have like a grill, fry-top or other specialty cooktops. Many of the new double gas ovens have the Precision Cooking System meant to take a lot of the guesswork out of temperatures and cooking.

No matter which oven model or manufacturer you choose, check all of the features and compare carefully for warranties, service, and price.

Using Retro Signs to Update Home Decor

Using Retro Signs to Update Home Decor

Retro Signs for Home Decor

One of the easiest ways to change the decor of any room is to change the accessories and wall art. Sometimes just changing the wall art alone can do the job.

For instance, if you want to change your bathroom from a modern look to a retro look, removing the modern artwork and replacing it with retro signs like the one pictured here, Mermaid Bath Salts, is a fast and easy way to do so.

This type of sign has a retro image and is painted on a metal sheet just like signs used to be years ago. If you are worried about dampness rusting the sign, you can spray paint it with a clear Krylon spray paint. Clear Krylon comes in a can and is easily applied to any metal surface. It also works to protect the finish of metal jewelry.

Make Money While Decluttering Your Home

Make Money While Decluttering Your Home

For most of us, there comes a time when it seems as if we've outgrown our homes because every closet is bursting at the seams and there is clutter in almost every room. Does this mean you're a bad housekeeper? Usually not, it just means that over the years you've accumulated more and more possessions that are taking up valuable space. This can be especially true when raising children, as they are constantly outgrowing both clothing and toys, which continuously have to be replaced with age- and size-appropriate items. Even with adult-only households, every year we add clothes to our wardrobes which we no longer wear, and acquire a lot of books and magazines. Over time, this can make your home cluttered to the point where you feel like you no longer have enough space. There are some simple and effective ways to reduce the clutter, while at the same time putting cash back in your pocket. Here we offer some ideas on organizing and decluttering the home to help you reclaim your space.

Donations

Donating is a logical choice for clearing out many items, especially clothing. Thrift stores such as Goodwill are happy to accept a variety of items and many towns have drop boxes located in parking lots of businesses that will take clothing and shoe donations. Even worn out rubber soled shoes are generally accepted, because the rubber can be recycled to make soft rubber, kid-safe playground surfaces. Consider church organizations and domestic violence shelters too, as they may have need for clothing in various sizes for both genders. While you won't make money by decluttering this way, you can claim donations as tax deductions. This is a great way to provide clothing to those in need and will also make extra room in your closets and dresser drawers.

Sell Your Used Clothing

Clothing that is no longer needed and just taking up space is a great way to earn some extra cash. By holding a garage sale, you can unload these items and make a few dollars in the process. You might also want to attempt selling your items through a consignment shop. If going this route, make sure to check with the store on their policies, as well as inquire what sizes and clothing brands they are willing to sell.

You can also sell unwanted clothing online. Using auction sites such as Ebay has proven to work well for many people, especially when selling brand name popular clothing items. Craigslist is also another popular online option for selling just about anything and everything. There are also several relatively new sites that allow users to sell clothing online from the comfort of your own home.

ThredUp accepts baby clothes, kids' clothes, women's clothing, shoes, and used purses. With this site, the user requests a "clean out bag" with a pre-paid shipping label that is sent to your home. Simply fill with your unwanted clothing items and send it back for review and payment. You also have the option of donating your earnings to charity.

Tradesy.com requires a bit more work on the part of the seller and offers payment in the form of Tradesy cash, or pay an extra fee to have the funds sent to a bank account or PayPal. This site deals with higher end merchandise such as designer brands.

Swap.com allows sellers to send in a box of items and accepts kids' clothing and a variety of other items. This site also offers a guarantee that if your items don't sell within 45 days, they will buy them from you.

Make Money from Your Old Books

If you're an avid reader, chances are you've accumulate quite a few books through the years. If you're looking to clean out your bookcases as part of your organizing and decluttering efforts, Bookscouter.com provides a great place to sell those used books and textbooks and make some cash. The site allows sellers to compare prices of 57 different book-buying websites so that you can determine where you'll get the best price for your books. Below you can see an example of a book that I looked up and some of the results from the listed sites.

Bookscouter

 

Bookscouter also has a sister site called Gadgetscouter. When you go to Bookscouter, you can see a link for Gadgetscouter in the sidebar. You can look your old gadgets up to see if anyone is buying them.

Garage Sales

Garage or rummage sales are not only a great way to sell old clothing, but everything else as well. Garage sales can be a great way to sell unused furniture, household goods, knick knacks, toys, games, appliances, computers, clothing, games, etc. If you are advertising larger ticket items, make sure to place an ad in the local paper that lists those. For example, list individual items such as "refrigerator, washing machine, clothing, and lots of miscellaneous." Using keywords will attract buyers searching for that particular item. Keep prices on common items reasonable so that they will sell and be willing to negotiate.

Craigslist and Newspaper Ads

If you have larger items to sell, such as a television or piano (just a couple of examples), and don't wish to hold a garage sale, advertise these items on Craigslist or place an ad in the local paper. Placing items under the proper category will attract interested buyers quickly and get the unwanted item out of the house as soon as possible. These items are generally anything too big to ship such as a couch. Make sure to get your payment in cash before the person takes the item.

Shredded paper

Recycle the Junk

Items such as old magazines, junk mail, and newspapers really pile up quickly. As part of your organizing efforts, every few weeks, go through all the junk mail, old bills, magazines, etc. and determine what you no longer need. Investing in a paper shredder is a great idea so that you can safely place these papers in the recycling bin. If your neighborhood does not have regular recycling pickup, check to see if there is a recycling facility where you can drop off these unwanted papers.

Participate in Recycling Programs

Items such as old tires and car batteries are not good to leave lying around and can really take up a lot of valuable space in the garage or shed. Many towns periodically hold an event where citizens can take and drop them off for proper recycling at no cost. Take advantage of these events to clear out a lot of clutter.
