Worthwhile Things to Do in Westchester County (While Everyone Else is on Vacation)

Other than participating in the white-hot (HA!) and very worthwhile Ice Bucket Challenge, it seems many of us in Westchester County are grasping for some worthwhile things to do as summer '14 winds down.

Each of us has things we keep meaning to do, but we get busy and forget. If you have some time on your hands in the days to come, here are some ideas The Refreshed Home guarantees will get you thinking, and make you feel good, with easy links for more info.

How's Your Voter Registration Status?

National Voter Registration Day is September 23rd, but why wait?? If you're a new voter, if your circumstances have changed (name, address) or if you'll be in school, the military or traveling this election season, this link will get you whatever info you need to register, change your info or request an absentee ballot. You can also volunteer at registration drives with the League of Women Voters, even just raise awareness in your own circles by asking if people are registered!

Give Blood

Every 41 seconds someone needs blood in the US, and each pint can help save up to three lives, but donations fall off sharply in the summer. If you are in good health and qualify, it'll probably be the best 45 minutes you'll spend in a while, and there are even cookies and juice after! Here's more info including where to donate from the Red Cross, but trust me, any hospital will welcome you with open arms.

Snag Some Free Tickets

Before everyone comes back from vacation, get your bid for tickets to the taping of your favorite shows in now. The SNL ticket lottery for 2014-15 season ends 8/31, but tapings for other NYC area shows go on year-round, lots of choice days around the holidays are still available.

Hit Some Museums

Yes, art can make you happy; quieter and less-crowded museums in late August can make you even happier. In lower Hudson Valley, the hands-down best deal is the Fairfield Westchester Museum Alliance: Membership to one gets you free admission to all 8, for a full year.

Get Your Safe Driver Discount

Besides just being a smart thing, this can pay off big. Here in NY one 6 hour course ( $40.00 or less) will reduce your insurance by 10% for 3 years, and take points off your license...AND now you can do it online!

TOMORROW: Donating, Drive-Ins and more!

Our spaces affect us profoundly...and so many other parts in our life fall into place when our spaces and possessions serve us in the best way they can. But getting there is much more than a pursuit of pleasing aesthetics.

 

Decorating and Staging are different, but much of the skill sets overlap, and each creates unique solutions that considers the needs, goals, resources, expectations, hopes and dreams of each client.

Bettering Westchester, Putnam and lower Fairfield counties since 1981, The Refreshed Home works collaboratively, and brings a thoughtful approach to the creative process. Proud to make a difference, as well as make a living. Offering specialty services such as remote and buyer consults, listing photo/video styling, guided and accompanied shopping, and accessory rental. We get in, get out, and you get on with your life.  Talk to me TODAY about how we can better your space!
