    "Eric and his crew did a masterful job of painting the walls to perfection and making sure that our chestnut woodwork was protected. He oversaw the refinishing of our living room and dining room floor that now glows. He fixed all sorts of things that got our beautiful home ready for sale. All of this Eric did with heart!"

  • Sentimental or Simply Clutter?

    Now that the holiday season cycle has passed and won't be around for a few more months, stores and TV commercials are backing down from their seasonal surge of 'Buy Now!' sales and discounts. It is well known that they still want you to buy their wares, but they've moved away from trying to constantly undercut their competitors and dazzle you with their best ads.  And successful or not, the holiday season has introduced a myriad of new object into our home that either replace the old ones or are crowding our old, sentimental things. On her blog, Unclutterer, Deb Lee has some recommendations on what to throw away, what to store and what to keep.

    Try to place new and old things, such as old fashioned picture frames versus the new digital ones, next to each other in your home for a while and see which one you like better. Ask yourself whether or not you would be happier with the new than the old; if its a tie, keep the old and you won't be worried about regretting the decision. And if the worry of losing the memories that the old object holds persists, write down those memories. Don't have any room for your old teddy bear? Take a picture of it and write down the memories that it has for you and keep them both in a journal. Its a win-win, keep the non-visual feelings and never forget what your childhood friend looked like.
