        Money Saving Tips

        Money Saving Tips

        THE art of shopping has never been more important than in these days of high prices and inflation. In country after country, prices have hit alarming highs, with little hope of a downward trend in the foreseeable future. In many families both parents have to work just to make ends meet. How important it is, then, for you to know how, where, and when to shop and how to spend your money in the most prudent way!

        One of the most important elements in being a good shopper is knowing the value of things. A sale item—be it clothing, an appliance, or food—will not represent a savings if it is of poor quality, needs drastic alterations or repairs, or is ultimately not used.

        For instance, when buying clothing, ask yourself: Is the material of good quality? Is it well made? Does it have to be altered? How often will I wear it? Is it a style that will last? Is it easy to keep clean? An item that needs to be dry-cleaned can be more expensive in the long run than a washable item that is higher priced initially. So maintenance is a factor. Real bargains are those clothes that fit well, flatter your face and figure, and can be worn and enjoyed for years.

        The same principles apply to purchasing furniture and appliances, whether new or used. Is the item of good quality? Does it work? If repairs are needed, can you make them yourself? What will the final cost be? Asking yourself these questions, especially when shopping at garage and yard sales or flea markets, can inhibit impulse buying and save many a penny.

        To get the best value in appliances, you should know what they cost to operate. Big maintenance and utility bills can add greatly to the cost of an item. Think too of where the item will be used. For example, an air conditioner placed in a sunny window will take much more electricity to cool the room than one placed in a window away from the sun. The length of time the appliance is on as well as its size, age, and efficiency will determine how much energy it draws and, therefore, the overall cost.

        Knowing when to buy can at times be more important than where. Usually, the best bargains in summer clothes can be obtained toward the end of the summer season. Most clothing stores have clearance sales then to make room for their fall outfits. The same is true at the end of the winter season. The greatest savings will be realized by purchasing them toward the end of winter and just before the spring merchandise comes in. True, selections may not be as broad, but they are usually adequate.

        Since most car models do not change much from year to year, you can save by buying a new car toward the end of the year when dealers clear their lots for the next year’s models. Do not be afraid to ask questions as to what warranties and service go with your purchase. In time these may prove more valuable than some features of the car itself.

        Space Saving Spice Racks

        Posted: March 20th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , , | No Comments »

        I am one of those cooks who uses a lot of herbs and spices on a regular basis when cooking. One of the things I get really fed up about when I am cooking is trying to find the ingredients I need. The trouble with having a small kitchen is that there is nowhere to store those tiny jars and packets that hold cooking ingredients – and find them quickly! The obvious option, when you think about it, is to screw a rack to some available wall space and place small matching jars, containing various frequently used ingredients, on this rack. This is the basis behind one of my favorite spice rack and jar sets. Featuring the Butterfly Meadow collection inspired by Louise Le Luyer, this 7-piece set consists of a wooden rack and six spice jars, each one labelled for a different herb: basil, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, and thyme. I know these are herbs, but you get the idea – you can do the same with the various spices too.

        Whenever anybody is at a loss to buy me a present, I tell them they can never go wrong if they get me a variety of herbs and spices. Apart from using them regularly, I love to look at them: to see their depths of color and tone. There are, however, literally hundreds of herbs and spices – if not thousands if you take into account various blends – so, before splurging out on a space saving spice rack or two, you really do need to consider very carefully where you are going to put it. Many people don’t like bits and pieces cluttering up their kitchen surfaces. If this is the case with you, the best place for a spice rack is attached to the wall. If you are one of those people who doesn’t like anything on view and prefers everything in the kitchen to be hidden away -  well, there is even an option for you as well.

        The most important thing about a space saving spice rack is that it needs to be accessible. For the aficionados of ‘everything behind closed doors’ there is a spice rack and set of spice bottles that have been made to fit into a drawer: you just designate a specific drawer to store your spices so you can find them quickly. For those people, like me, who prefers spice racks to be attached to the wall, make sure you don’t place them too close to the cooker as the heat emitted from that could cause your spices’ potency to be reduced – and, since some of the best spices are quite expensive, you don’t want that to happen!

        So, what selection do we have when it comes to a space saving spice rack? One idea, for spices sitting in the corner of a worktop, is a spice carousel. This is simply a wooden rack, usually rounded, that contains a number of small bottles, each one filled with a specific herb or spice. When you need to get a particular bottle, you just spin the carousel around on its pivot until you locate the bottle you need. This really is a great idea for a space saving spice rack as it can sit at the back of a little-used corner of your work counter, yet still be available as required.


        Money Saving Kitchen Design Tips

        Posted: March 19th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

        so we have compiled this money saving kitchen design tips feature to help you update your kitchen on a budget. And keep an eye out over the next few weeks as we add more to the list.

        1.Do not automatically head to your kitchen retailer for new cabinets. Instead, sand them down and using thinned white house paint brush it over the surface. Wait a few moments and then wipe the surface. This will give you a fantastic mottled paint look that brings out the grain in your wood. Seal it with a wax for that quality finish

        2. Pick up packs of Christmas Lights during the January sales and remove the coloured covers. The remaining white bulbs can then be tacked under cabinets and in hidden alcoves to add some cool new kitchen lighting.

        3. Purchase some clear glass jars and store dry food in them such as pulses, nuts and seeds. This can add colour, texture and a ‘foodie’ feel to your kitchen design.

        4. Create a kitchen wall border or some texture to your kitchen cabinets with a small piece of sponge and some paint. You can even add it to the hem of your curtains!

        5. Create your own wooden cutting board by heading to the local builders’ merchants and asking for an off cut of pine or oak. Take it home a carefully sand it down using various grades of sandpaper. You can then varnish or stain it and smooth off any edges to create an ‘expensive’ cutting board.

        6. Repaint the kitchen walls. It is amazing what difference a lick of paint can make. Think carefully about adding a new colour to the theme too as this can really bring your tired kitchen alive.

        7. Add some fabric to the mix by looking for a new tablecloth or curtain design as this can be a very cost effective way of reinvigorating your kitchen space.

        8. Create a fake stone look for your kitchen worktops by learning how to create a fauz stone finish using paints (Google: Faux Stone Finish). To do it you need to prime your worktops with a special primer and this needs to dry for several hours before you can then start painting over the top. The results can be very impressive.


        Space Saving TV Stands

        Posted: November 11th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , | No Comments »

        Television stands serve more functions than holding the television. They can act as storage space for your entertainment equipment and accessories, and can save space in your house. This is especially important when the available space is limited as in large number of modern homes. They are also a major item of furniture in whatever room they are placed in. As such when you buy a TV stand you must evaluate their storage capacity and space saving ability in addition to their general appearance and quality.

        TV stands can come in great many variations under different brands. They are also manufactured using several kinds of materials ranging from wood to MDF to glass. They assume many styles ranging from traditional to modern, so that they can fit in to any room. However generally we can divide them in to few broad categories based on their size and functionality. Some of these can be TV cabinets, Pedestal TV stands, Corner TV stands, Swiveling TV stands, Wall TV mounts, Plasma stands, Compact TV stands, and Entertainment Centers, among others. We will look at each, their features, and their storage and space saving capacity.

        TV Stand Types

        Basic or compact TV stands only have space for the TV and perhaps one or two drawers below it. Because they are small they do not take up much space, however since they do not offer space for other equipment, you will need to find space for them separately.

        TV cabinets offer plenty of storage for other electronic equipment like DVD players, and sound systems, as well for accessories like CDs and DVDs by having several drawers. They are of moderate size generally. They do take up more space than basic TV stands and need to be centrally placed in order to allow access to their full functionality. Pedestal TV stands generally take up less space but offer less storage.

        Corner TV stands can be quite helpful in saving space. They can be placed in an unused corner thus adding more space into the room.  They have other space saving advantages as well; when the TV is placed in a corner it can be viewed from any other part of the room allowing much more efficient use of the room.  

        Swiveling TV stands allow the user to move TV’s angle easily, thus making it possible to cover the room according to need.  

        Wall TV mounts literally mounts the TV on the wall allowing maximum possible space savings on the floor. Wall mounting is usually performed on flat screen TVs.  Best wall mounts usually do not require power tools to mount them into walls so will not cause any damage to your walls. However you need to find space for rest of your equipment.   

        Plasma Stands are designed to hold plasma TVs which are generally wider than normal TVs. They are usually created in sleek designs to highlight the usually expensive plasma TV.

        Finally there are Entertainment Centers which can hold the full variety of modern entertainment equipment. While they are large and take up space they also allow lot of storage. Generally they save space only when you have a large number of equipment, because to place each of them separately would take even more space. However, if you do not own the full complement of entertainment equipment, most of the storage in the Entertainment Center will be wasted and you will lose space in the room needlessly    

        Other considerations

        When buying TV stands you should pay attention to the dimensions of your TV.  A TV stand smaller than your TV, will be unusable, but one larger than your TV will waste space unnecessarily. Make sure that TV stand has the strength to bear the TV and other equipment you may plan to place on it.

        There are several other features you should check for in a TV stand so that more space savings will be possible. You should get a stand with adjustable shelves so that you can make the best use of the storage space in it.  TV stands with wheels allow them to be moved easily which can be useful if you want to temporary remove it to free space.  A good TV stand will have appropriate and flexible openings in it for the required connecting cables. Without such flexibility your placement options for the TV stand will become limited.
