Tip of the day

Start thinking about the winter months now. 

  • What home improvement projects can you tackle that make your home more energy efficient?
  • Search Craig’s List or Freecycle for free wood offers.  Split the wood and stack it to dry for future use.
  • What foods would be comforting to have on a dreary winter day?  Can some homemade soup.  Freeze corn.  Make blackberry jam. 
  • Have your chimney swept during the off season.  Many companies offer a slightly lower rate in warmer months as compared to the late fall and winter.
  • What craft projects can you start for Christmas and holiday gifts? 
  • Make your Christmas list, if you haven't already, and start buying the gifts as you find sales and bargains.
