Trade in Your Tech

Technology is constantly evolving, and the promise of new gadgets is always on the horizon. Here are three ways to get rid of your used, working electronics. Sell: Selling old devices directly on sites, such as eBay or Amazon, will likely get you the biggest payout, even with depreciation. But it can be a bit of a hassle; it’s up to you to create a listing, pack and ship the device, and deal with potentially flaky buyers. Trade-in: Companies like Gazelle and NextWorth let you trade your obsolete gadget for cash that you can put toward something new, and many will send you a shipping kit with a box and label. Some of these services offer only gift cards, but others pay you via check or PayPal. Donate: Want to fill your wallet with karma instead of cash? Schools, libraries, and charities are often eager to take old tech off your hands. Check with your local organizations for details. Remember

6 Easy Ways to Save Water at Home

The average American household uses more than 300 gallons of water a day, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that 40 out of 50 states will experience some form of water shortage over the next 10 years. Reduce your family’s water use by following these simple water-smart practices in your home: • Invest in water-efficient household products, such as shower heads, faucets, toilets, lawn irrigation controllers, and appliances. Look for the EPA’s WaterSense label before you buy! • Avoid flushing the toilet unnecessarily. Dispose of tissues, insects, and other such waste in the trash can. • Fix all dripping faucets; replacing the worn washers is often the quickest and cheapest remedy. • Use a timer to avoid watering your lawn and plants longer than necessary. Check your sprinklers for leaks, and redirect the spray so you’re not watering the house, driveway, or sidewalks. • Defrost food in the refrigerator overnight or in the microwave instead of running cold water over the frozen food. • Operate washing machines and dishwashers only when fully loaded.

Maximize Your Closet Space

No matter the size of your home, there just never seems to be enough closet space. Make the most out of the space you have with these tips. Downsize your inventory: Get rid of items you don’t need. Haven’t worn it recently? Not sure why you bought it in the first place? Damaged? Out of style? Toss it. Store out-of-season clothing in boxes under the bed or in a guest room closet. Match your hangers: Slim, matching hangers take up a lot less space. Plus, they look nice! Remove empty hangers, or rehang them on either end of the closet rod. Go vertical: Make use of awkward spaces by attaching hooks to walls and adding extra shelves or rods to corners. Hanging and stacking your clothes, shoes, and accessories will open up floor space and make things easier to find. One in, one out: Before you buy a new item, consider where it will go. If your closet is at capacity after decluttering, consider letting something go when you buy a new item.
