You've probably never given much thought to your laundry basket. You use it, maybe even daily, for the task described by its name. It's a container for your clothing. Nothing more. Or is it? It's time to take another look at your laundry basket and all that it can do for you.
Having a backyard shindig? Bust out that basket! Line your laundry basket with a garbage bag, preferably a heavy-duty one to prevent leaks and tearing.
Have you been wanting to host the party of the year? New Year's Eve is the perfect time to have all of your friends and family over, and you don't even need to rent a banquet hall to provide the perfect scenario for your event.
Send Out Invitations - Don't wait another day! Once December hits, people start making their plans for the holidays, and the calendars fill up quickly. Don't forget to include the appropriate dress for the evening.
Your furnace may produce a bad odor, especially when you first turn it on for the year. In most cases, the odor is just normal mustiness from dust and it will go away quickly. Common odors include:
Musty or mildew smells. This usually isn't a cause for concern and you can solve the problem yourself.
Burning oil or smoke. In some cases, burning oil smells are brief and no cause for concern.
Some people love spending their Saturdays on someone else's lawn, looking for great deals. Garage sales can be a quick way to find a cool or interesting item for an affordable price, but the trouble with garage sales is that the items are already things that no one at the home wanted anymore. They can quickly become picked-over, with only a few really great items. However, there is another option: estate sales.
