It’s a new year – with so much promise and so much to do. Here are some ways to make life easier and solve the little problems that crop up around your home and garden this year.
1. Replace the light over your garage door: Choose a bigger, brighter fixture. Garage lighting is often undersized, because builders spend lighting dollars elsewhere. A larger fixture outside over the garage door will enhance your home’s appearance – and you’ll appreciate the extra light every time you arrive home after dark.
2. Start trolling antique stores: You find great used stuff that’s cheaper and better than many new products. Like vintage Christmas decorations? You’ll score big time.
3. Beat bugs: Have an ant problem? Experts suggest spreading cinnamon across the path where they’re entering the room. They’ll avoid it like the plague.
