What Is This Yellow Tag?

Hi Everyone!

This week I wanted to talk about something I'm sure most of us have seen out and about at many stores and on many products. The bright yellow EnergyGuide Label. 

I know I easily recognized it but I could not say I had ever paid particularly close attention to the message it was conveying or thought very much about what it should mean to me...

Nichole Thoughts

Hi everyone!
This past week I have been working on my house. I plan on renting it out and I have been a little preoccupied with that along with a few other good real estate things I have going on. So while I may not have anything too exciting for you I wanted to share a little bit of what has been going on and some things going through the old brain bank the past week or so....

Some Things You May Find Helpful-Paint Disposal

Hello there! 

As promised I'm back to talk about paint disposal options. If you are anything like me you may or may not have 15-20 half used gallons of paint hanging around your garage. Hanging around the garage is exactly where they would stay until they are virtually worthless...Unless we can find something useful to do with them!

There are some alternatives to keeping them around until the end of time, and you can usually find them through your local city or county landfill....

Low VOC Paint

This past week I have had paint on the brain, and on my hands, in my hair, on my clothes, I will stop myself the list goes on and on. I am repainting several rooms in my house and it has consumed my thoughts and time as of late. In honor of my new found hobby I decided to talk a little about paint this week.  

Many of you may already be familiar with Low or Zero VOC paints. If you fall into this category you may want to just move on with your day. If not, however, maybe you've heard VOCs talked of when looking at new homes, shopping at a home improvement store, or at a home expo but aren't quite sure what the heck a VOC is well this MIGHT help you....I'm not promising anything here.

I Want Trails

Hiking is an activity many people enjoy

Utah has hundreds...thousands.. (I didn't actually count) of trails and access to outdoor recreation is a top reason many enjoy living in Utah 

Easy access to hiking trail heads or developed walking trails is very appealing to potential home buyers, and results in a more appealing and marketable product when a seller is selling a home with these qualities.
