6 Tips to Keep Your Budget on Track for remodeling and decorating
Remodeling and decorating doesn't have to break the bank. Here are 6 tips to keep your budget on track: 
1. Brake for garage sales. One person's junk can be a do-it-yourselfer's treasure. Never pass a garage sale or antiques store without stopping, especially when you're on vacation or passing through a neighborhood other than your own. Keep an eye on neighbors' curbside trash piles for great castoffs.
2. Look for local outlet stores or wholesalers. They can be sources for buying plumbing supplies, kitchen goods, tile or stone, and other specialty items at … (2 comments)

Smells That Sell Houses..................
I think we have all walked into a home and said what is that smell? While a bad smell can deter buyers, a good smell can temp buyers to a sale. From "green" scents to seasonal scents, discover the right smells for triggering positive emotions and home sales.
1. Clean smell

2. Citrus
Using actual fruit is one way to get a clean smell without … (11 comments)

Make it Pop: How to Add Color to a Room.........
 
It is winter and I am already looking forward to Spring. I love the weather and all the bright colors spring brings. Why not reflect that cheerfulness indoors year-round?

5. Incorporate an accent furniture piece.
